What do you think?

Guy said i could get it for around 1900 and that it drives well... im thinking of checking it out on the weekend and fixing it up which i dont mind, then turboing it. Anything to watch for?

no clue, me and a friend plan on doing all maintenance, replacing theromostat, fuel pump, spark plugs, water pump serpentine belt (if needed) anything else.

Are cooling systems expensive?

They don't have to be, they just need to be replaced. From about 50K miles.

Hi guys today i looked at the car and found out it was a reconstructed title which was because of theft.. i already knew that and have no problem with that, i took the car for a drive and it felt perfectly fine, nice and smoothe no roughness or strange noises, the computer told me my coolant level was low and my break lights werent working... is that common because the last e36 i looked at said break lights werent working too?

here are some problems i noted:

steering wheel is off center by this i mean if i drive straight the steering wheel is off the the right, i got quoted 32 dollars for an alignment

misc knobs and buttons, trims are missing and cd player.

driver window will not roll up or down, motor makes sound.

sun roof will pop up and down but not open or close, motor works.

there was a button by the driver side mirror button that said at, mt not sure what that is the shift nob had numbers 1 2 and 3 on it is that a shift thing?

Anyways i took some pictures and im hoping you guys could assist me in spotting anything that could be big trouble... here are the pics...

heres one other thing, when i looked inside this white thing marked in the picture there looked like it was just water in there, clear liquid, is that supposed to be in there? whats is it?


The very left box in the above picture had white liquid in it, normal?

The other red box to the right of the picture i noticed what looked like grease at the crack were it meets, could this be a possible leak?


this is where it seemed like it was greasy, just making sure... normal?


seems like somethings missing?












for $1950, not bad?
