Re: 95 Mugello w/ 29k on BaT- Guess the price. Prize to Winner

Love BAT! First real low mileage e36 M3 that I can recall. Guessing this will top out at around $30K, but who knows if you have 2 bidders that want it.

My guess is $28,500.

He sold the...

Re: Omg i want this 1999 m3 in canada

I was thinking the repair work might be close to your asking price on the car, so not surprised at the $7200.

Re: Omg i want this 1999 m3 in canada

Glad you were able to unload your M3. Did you ever get a repair estimate from Sublime?

For $23K, you're close to e46 ZCP money...the Cape is calling you!

I feel the same way sorta. Is your M3 your only car? As a DD, it can get trying. But as a weekend car, it's a blast to own and drive. Repairs are not rushed as you can do it when time and funds...
