it crossed my mind, and i always do this, but i have sudden urges to look for a different car to own. what is a good site to look for E36's. I know of roadfly and autotrader, you guys know any other good places? im look for something under 9k.(preferably higher then a 323)

Cuz i think its easier to upgrade and easier to find parts for. my E30 is gettin old and i know is gonna start having problems soon, especially the way i push it.

And id rather have someone else deal with the problems then me, still though its not final ofcourse. I need to make some more money before i get a different car.
and i love my E30 with a f'ing passion, but id just like to look at some other stuff.

thanks

If I'd be you, I'd keep the E30(try not to push it ) Get an E36(or whatever you want, add 3k and get 2000EVO) save a lot of money though, and then, restore your E30, it's a beautiful car and I'd just restore it(primaraly engine).

just my .10

Dude, your e30 looks sweet! I just read a tech article in BMW ROundel Magazine about how hardy the e30 chasis are, and how solid those cars are (compared to e36, e30's apparently have a stronger undercarriage/chassis). What do you want an e36 for? DOn't get mewrong, I love mine, but the e30 is solid!
Enjoy!

I got my car on eBay almost four years ago before it was the cool thing to do. No problems.

I got my 93 325is for a bit over $5k on craigslist.org. I kind of lucked out - lady was trying to get rid of it to get a sedan.

Autotrader is a good place to look too - although I've noticed that people tend to list their cars pretty high because they know they'll get at least some notice because the site gets so much traffic.

Beautiful car by the way

I have found a lot of E36s around used car dealerships in my state... and in a few states... you just have to know exactly what to look for and not look for when buying... I'm pretty sure you could educate yourself... but in my opinion.. thats the easiest way.. cause either they are way over priced cause the guy thinks he's selling a great BMW or they are way under priced....

Good Luck either way bro...,
