It's hard to say without looking at the car in person of course, but I think that price is a little high. But I'm not an E30 expert (yet).

Also, in my opinion, BMWs (especially 3-series cars) are much more fun to drive with a 5-speed. Something you might want to consider. I sure with my first car had been a stick; that way I wouldn't have looked like such an idiot driving home my M3 last summer. :D

FYI, a '92 325i is an E36.

Oops! Didn't know that. Of course, that would be why my service manual lists '92 through '98. :banghead:

I still think the price is a little high, considering the mileage. And there are plenty of BMWs in that price range with manual transmissions, especially around big cities, so don't feel like you have to take this one.

Hehe. You'll probably find better examples. With a car that old, maintenance makes a HUGE difference in the way it will drive.
