whats the mileage on the car?
and if you want to push it to that much hp you should buy a 6cyl 3 series or an m3

That's rather expensive for a car that age with that many miles. I payed around 5,000 USD (6,600.25) for my '96 318is and it only had roughly 100,000 miles (160,000 km). The car was in exellent shape and really the only thing i had to do to it was change the tires (which by the way the seller payed for), and change most of the fluids.

Is it just me... or does the right from coner panel look like its a newer and more white color than the rest.. might just be the light.. but it looks to be replaced.

Any one see it?

Too much money.

Don't tell someone to not get a four banger. It might suit them better.
