3-Series (E46, E90)Chat relating to the BMW 3-Series from 1999 to Current. Models include: BMW 316i, BMW 318i, BMW 318Ci, BMW 320i, BMW 323i, BMW 325i, BMW 330i, BMW 328 Ci, BMW 328i, BMW 325i/xi, BMW 330Ci, BMW 320d, BMW 330d, BMW 335d.
Didn't appear to be an M, looks like a regular ol' 3 inside... cept for maybe the seats and steeringwheel. (don't rely on me though)
looks like my 98 323is (but my steering wheel has the color plastic roundel) Exterior looks JUST like a regular ol' 3 series. It's DEFINATELY an E36
Test drive it, if it appears to be fine and you like the power it has, Go for it. BMW's last for 250,000+ hard miles without any major failures if taken care of. I have a 4 speed auto and I'd like to know how the manuals drive.
Price is about right. I picked up my 98 323is auto with 76k miles on it for $15,000, looked at it (no idea my dad was taking me to 'F1 Imports') saw it, test drove it, and drove it home 45 minutes later. Never regreted it. (I wish it had a bit more power but who wouldn't want more? )
buy it, then take off that m decal, or, get an m bumper, either or, its just not right as is
