Re: 37K-Mile 1995 BMW M3 Coupe 5-Speed Daytona Violet

The 2000s smoked a lot. And they burned a lot of oil.

Your better off getting a 2001. The piston rings are to blame for it. They were updated in 2001.

In other words. Donít get a 2000.

$1250 less is what I meant.

Re: 37K-Mile 1995 BMW M3 Coupe 5-Speed Daytona Violet

It went $1,250 more than my original guess.

Eurospec is almost at 10g so you might be close at your 15k price that you estimated it would go for.

Re: Purchased another e36. This time at a dealer auction for 13.5k

Why did so many people pull the trigger on a stupid trunk spoiller on these cars?

Iím not a fan of it at all. Atleast the rear 3rd brake light is still intact, and not removed :parrot:

How often do these m cars become available to this website ?

Never even really heard of this auction site. They must not have much marketing.

It could just be the switch ?

Common. Your better than that. Orange back lit is BMW. If it was Range Rover it would be green.

The M logo could be China. That's probably where BMW sources those from
