          I live in a very small town, with usually only 3 - 5 BMW's (of all models) for sale at any one time. Not a lot to pick from.

          I purchase most of my cars from locations hours (2 - 4 hrs) away from me, so I do all of this on the front end. I have to know that the seller is willing to 'stoop to my level' price wise, before I invest the day traveling back and forth to see it. I will not spend 8 hrs driving only to find out that the seller won't budge from his asking price more than 200 dollars.

          I am patient and friendly enough, and I know what questions to ask, to get most of the information that I need to make a decision, before seeing the car.

          Now, if I get to the car and there are more flaws that the seller would not divulge, I enter a new acquisition strategy. If the flaws are serious enough and the seller won't budge on the already lowball price we have agreed upon, I walk away (very important).

          This not seeing the car and already lowballing the seller tactic does seem kind of douchey/assholish to me sometimes. I understand that. But it is a by product of my geographic location, and the fact that I won't get all googly eyed and attached before the purchase, at the price I told myself I wouldn't go over, has occurred.

          This works for me. Some sellers won't talk price for one second over the phone. I don't work with sellers like this, again due to my geographic location and the time I would have to spend traveling.

                Luckily, not the one I was thinking of, but it does have some info floating around online.

                So looks like it's not the same one - but 7 years and 20K+ more miles.. Was in Florida - I'd still go over it for rust in the usual spots and see if there is anything suspicious.

                  Shit, 4,000 dollars for a 40k mile 318is back in 2010. Holy hell.

                    1991 Sterling Mtech Vert - https://washingtondc.craigslist.org/...174331267.html

                    Needs a little love on the outside, but interior is pretty amazing.

                    If this is who I think is selling it, the guy has 3 or 4 Mtech II cars. A friend of mine bought some parts off him a few years back and caught a glimpse of several in his garage.

                    If I hadn't picked up my Sterling 325is last year, I would be checking this thing out tonight.

                      Hello all!

                      My hubby spent all winter long doing fantastic things to his beloved 1990 E30 BMW 325i 5 Speed Manual with a M20 2.5 liter 6 cylinder.

                      Hubby rebuilt the rear end, front end, replaced the drive shaft, new radiator, thermostat, and various other things I know nothing about since, well, I have ovaries, to this little Calypso Red convertible. (He gave me an exact list of the things he did do to the BMW to post, please scroll down to read. but before you do, read my story...)

                      Anyways, as old farts, we drove the little bimmer around on the weekends, through countryside back roads admiring the emerging corn fields. Life was good.

                      So what happened, you ask?

                      Well, I'll tell you.

                      We were cruising down 180 with the roof down from Frederick last week, Thursday night to be exact. It was a beautiful night... the moon was half full, and bright as can be... the air cool, and the stench of cow manure from the farm fields mercifully faded. Fire flies were dancing along the wooded roadside as we puttered along. We were smiling.

                      That's when it happened.

                      From a steep embankment, on a bend in the road, along the edge of a fenced farm field, two, yes TWO *&;%$$#@ 3-point young bucks jumped the fence and proceeded to barrel down the steep embankment.

                      Sitting in the passenger seat (I don't drive stick), my eyes connected with the buck closest to me (They were coming down the embankment side-by-side, just like the song from the 50's, but I digress) and I know for a FACT that deer had the same thought cross his mind, as my own, of "Oh Sh**!"

                      BAM BAM BAM

                      I'm not good at Physics, but the force of impact of those two bad boys took out the passenger side front wheel well panel, windshield, passenger door, and rear side panel.... of my husband's beloved little E30. Sigh.

                      Here's the kicker:

                      Since one cannot insure an antique car in Maryland for collision, we calculated the cost of repair, paint and what not to bring her back to her formal glory, and alas, it exceeds what is reasonable for our senior citizen sensibilities. We've already sunk enough money into the old girl buying her baubles and such... it is time to either sell her at a huge discount for what we have in it, or piece her out.

                      I have a sad hubby because it is an unfortunate demise of a fabulous running car.

                      I've included a picture of the two stupid deer that brought us to this point, and their imprint left on the car.

                      My hubby has sadly provided me a list to post below of stuff he has done to the little bimmer. I warn you, he's a tad anal retentive in doing things right without cutting corners. Anyone who owns these delightful cars knows how pissy they can be if you don't buy them the good stuff. If you like, Bill will yak with you about it. Here's his list:

                      Windshield


                      Offering car whole before part out begins


                      So- there you have it friends. Obviously it would be easier to scoot her out the door to a new home without taking her apart. This is a wonderful, spirited car in incredible running condition. Hate to see her end her days by stupid deer.

                          great ad though. nothing like seeing mangled up road kill wilst perusing the for sale ads.

                            cheap 325is:

                            https://albany.craigslist.org/cto/6178019414.html

                            I e-mailed seller for pics of the rust. It's somewhat gnarly. I'd offer $2,000 and nurture it back to life, but I already have two e30's and not enough space.
