I'm looking at another 95 325i with just over 20k miles on a rebuilt engine, 101k total. Asking price is 9500. It's in pretty much perfect shape. Had m3 body kit, it's 4dr, red, everything painted to match, 17s, spoiler, euro tails, clear corners, black leather, heated seats... blah blah blah.. oh yeah m3 exaust put on as well and sport suspension.

anyways, my question is, there is a button that says ASC on it on the console. what is what? The production date on this car is also 10/94.

and is it possible for this to have traction control?

the problems that I've found is that it needs brakes which is no biggie and has a bulb out in the gauge cluster. Otherwise it's awesome. WHat is a good OEM replacement brake pad set?

What do you guys think about this deal?

Also is there an E36 with AWD?

haha if there was a all wheel drive e36 i would own one right now...just the e30 325iX and the new e46's can have all wheel drive...well the ASC does mean traction control but i am pretty sure that the older e36's didnt have that back then....it sounds like a sweet car...im sure if you went to bavauto or some OEM parts websight you could get those brakes. thats all i can tell ya lets see some pix!!
