Hey lads,

thinking of getting this car, what does everyone think of it.

I went to have a look at it and it looks absolutely new. You can not see it on the pics but the roof is painted black

give me some opinions

Did you do a title search.. acciedents??... it looks good but like victor says...why is the roof black?? Is it for styling or to hide something...

lots of extras tho.. I'm undecided... don't like 4 doors... is the price of £5250 fair compared to other e36's on the market in the UK?

dont like replicas its a fake that wants to be an m series think should keep your car stock, people pay for an m3 to stand out from the rest of the bmw but people try to make replicas and pretend its a real m3

Theres nothing wrong with buying M3 kit. You shouldnt put M badges on it though that looks gay.

Looks good. Just depends on what kind of mechanical shape the car's in. Not sure why you wish to weld the rear doors shut, and remove the handles, but whatever. I wouldn't buy a car without driving it though.

ok answering all of you lads at once:

The roof is black coz the guy that painted it got the idea from the mercedes e class with the glass roof.

The back doors are not welded they have a popping kit installed so they pop open with a remote.

The mechanical shape of the car is very good i went to see it. Plus under the hood it is spotless.

The only thing that lets me down thoug is that it has no air conditioning.

As for the price it's not 5250 pounds, the guy is letting it go for 4600 - 4700 which is very good for this country.

The other thing i am thinking though is to just get a proper M3 just that it is a bit pricy here. Hope i can find something good for 7500 which is my limit. After that i am broke.

nah bro, theres better deals out there.

Mine is a 95 320i coupe (which i think are a hell of a lot better than the 4 door) with 90k on the clock, full service etc and I paid £3500. It was in mint condition.

i prefer to get stand cars with no mods etc and then add what you want on it yourself. Ie i got mine from the old guy who you know washed it every week, kept it garaged, paid for every service etc and has not been ragging the engine going to cruises every night. It works out a lot cheaper, then for the money you save you can add your on m3 bumpers and some nice brand new rims. The black roof and shaved doors will also make it a lot harder to sell when you want to get rid of it.

My advice = www.autotrader.co.uk and get something standard.

plus the colour is poo

To be honest with you i dont't want a 320 i have one now trying to go for something more powerful. you seem to be from england, am i wright? Anyways, the min thing i want is a 328. An M3 would be perfect but just too pricey man. I have seen everything there is to see on autotrader but still haven't got the budget for what i really want.

Yeah man, i'm from the UK.

You said you wanted something more powerful than a 320, but the ebay link is a 320. It would be slower than my 320 coupe as this one is bigger.

Your only real options then is to either wait a few months and keep looking (try freeads too as you can get a good deal) or do what my mate did and get a e30. You could easily get a big engined, nice condition coupe for a lot cheaper. I know its not the same as a e36 but you're gonna have to make a sacrifice if you want a faster car.


Either way don't get this ebay one. Its overpriced and you'll easily get a 325 or 328 coupe for the same money once one pops up.

edit: after seeing you got a £7,500 limit, you can easily get a nice m3 coupe for that!!

What you say makes more sense, I was just stating what the auction listed:

DE-HANDLED (WELDED) REAR DOORS

I agree with the bloke who said he liked to buy stock cars, and mod himself. But that car looks like it was done pretty well.
