First post on here...currently in the market for a 96 328is black with black leather manual with about 80-90k miles...is this too picky...i can only seem to find black with the tan interior...thanks guys
Secondly... Excellent choice! I would have rather had the black interior leather as well... but the deal I got was too good to ignore B)
Plus if you live in a climate where you have broiling temperatures 3/4 of the year, as I do, the tan interior is probably better anyways...
I agree. Mine is Black with Tan leather. I origionally also wanted black on black but I live in New Orleans and we're living in the fire place 99% of the year like stated above. Not good for black leather. I settled for the tan. Besides, it's easier to find.

Hey, I've been in New Orleans a couple times... and I am actually planning a trip to Louisiana Lafayette in a couple weeks... maybe we can meet up
My brother lives in New Orleans. Anyway hold out if thats what you want, unless you find a tan one for cheap you can convert it all over to black if you wanted.

I found my car on autotrader.com, but searched on ebay and cars.com
Because i would NEVER buy a car sight unseen i aranged a deposit with a few people, in which i sent them a hundred bucks to hold the car until i could come look at it. I spent $200 bucks doing this, but it saved me from buying a bad car twice!
I was set on a black/black 5spd. Beyond that i was flexible on year(93-99). Figure out what you deffinately want, and be patient. Switching tan to black is do-able but not very cost effective. They are out there, you just have to patient and in my case loose some sleep lookin!!!
