I like these, and like the late models, but this is kinda $$$. I wouldn't pay more than $3K for an XJ. These are cheap in other states like in the South. AZ, TX, NM, etc.

This one is expensive because it has. 2drs.
I really hate 4drs.
the last few months I've rented a Corolla and Camry and hated both so much I'm afraid to test drive a 4Runner or Tacoma..

Eric, if you get a 4x4 we'll have to go down to Hollister and have some fun in the dirt.

The 20 miles you live from me takes two hours to get there
Soon, I'd like to meet up. Or are you hitting Hollister any time soon?

I’m down for a little Hollister action once it fully dries up. I spent $100 at a self serve car wash over the course of 2 months getting dried up mud/dirt clumps off the underbody

I just bought an XJ for 3k to replace the Subaru and get rid of my payment. It has 200k miles and is a 1999 with a 5 speed. I replaced the suspension with a 3” lift and some ZJ parts, the A/C compressor, and put some 31” allterrains on it and I’m still in it less than 6k and it’s an awesome little truck.

Also I’ve owned like 5 so if you have questions I can help you out.

Those guys don't work on E30s. Like at all. They did my corner balance / alignment but they don't do anything outside of that. They say it's cus E30 owners are too cheap lol.

I would highly highly highly recommend Motorspeed West in Santa Clara. Ken is an E30 expert. Dude friggin tuned my 323i L-jet. lol. He also has a 323i with a stroker he built. Very awesome dude with a lot of practical knowledge. Rates are higher but hours are lower. Levels out to be pretty reasonable.
