    I don't know what's with these people. It's as if they run on a lower frequency level then the rest.

        I almost want to buy this car, it's local and the below lines really have me tempted.

        The main seal is toast, but show off those sweet oblique muscles for all the babes while you're topping off all the oil you're losing
        There is some rust, but if you're waving your arms furiously enough out of the sunroof, as mentioned earlier, no one will notice the rust.

                Actually, considering it is an 325i with a manual - these days, it would be considered a decent car if the rust is minimal.. I'm sure he would take 4500 or 5k if the right person walked up with cash. I've seen bigger POS' sell for more.

                  Exactly.

                  Wouldn't call that one a 'bucket' per se. Nor does 5900 seem insane. High, yes. But insane, no.

                  Had he listed it at 7900 I'd agree with you more.

                        I remember your for sale thread and thinking "This is really UNDERpriced"

                        It was refreshing to see actually.

                          Yeah, most of the parts actually.

                          The trunk lid spoiler. The 'sport' seats. The 13 button OBC. Probably the LSD.

                          Its far from being an iS, to me.

                            I priced it to sell that's for sure... and people STILL tried to dick me down on the price. I had to tell so many people it's asking or GTFO.

                            I told the buyer to come to me first if he was ever going to sell it... wouldn't be the first time I've bought an e30 back.
