that's a good deal if it's in good condition, if it's not well then that's the right price

Its clean, interior is spotless, engine bay is clean, none of the door panels are sagging out, or coming off. Ive gone over most of the common problems, and it seems to have none! Most in my area with a little less miles go for around 15. But i just wanted some advice from some other people.

I would get it thoroughly checked by a BMW mechanic if you could, but sounds great for the price!

Yea thats what i am wondering about. I asked the people selling it thay said they were fine with it. I think i will have that done. The price seems right, or even low to me.

I am guessing they have more hp. Everyone out here said that the BMW were faster than the U.S versions.

Not all of them are faster, just the M-class ones.

The euro E36 M3 has 321 bhp out of the evo 3.2L inline 6, or 285 bhp out of the 3.0L. The US E36 M3 has 240 bhp out of a 3.2L inline 6 or the 3.0L.



1999 E39 540i/6-VF Stage 1 S/C, Dinan exhaust, Dinan strut+shock braces, Dinan ltwt flywheel + clutch, Dinan Brembo BBK, Dinan monoball, H&R Springs, Koni Yellows, M5 sways, Dinan forged 18" wheels, &c.

1995 E38 740i. Highly modded. Faster than you.

Sold 2-28-07: 1997 E36 M3/4, 8-30-05 RIP 1997 528i

That is exactly what this 99 M3 is then because they are saying the car is 240kw (321 hp) It is the 3.2l. Now i am not so disappointed in the price difference.
