Not Dakar but seems nice and low mileage
I've spoken with this seller and am debating taking a ride to see the car, but I still need some more info. It's my last choice for color, and I don't necessarily love style 24's on Arctic Silver. I'd have to see the spoiler bulb LED fiasco in person as I hate dealing with electrical/wiring issues, as well as the thought of LED lights on a car of mine. Could honestly be an easy fix- but I like to assume things like that would be taken care of if so. With that being said, it still does seem like a pretty solid car.

Widers- I'll keep you in mind but I don't think I want another hellrot. Thanks though!

a little too modified for my tastes and i'm a little bit weary about needing a new headgasket at that mileage but could be a decent pickup if you really want a dakar.

Thatís what I meant. These engines donít need new headgaskets are that mileage unless they were supercharged/turbocharged or if they had a cooling system failure.

FWIW the spoiler LED bulb deal could just be as simple as turning the bulb in the socket. When I put mine in the bulbs only worked one way.

I think he is saying that if its such an easy fix why is the seller even mentioning it and not just fixing it? I assume car isnt local so he doesnt want to waste his time. I would agree, could be an indicator of more issues or the guy is just lazy and/or does not care to fix it. Either way I dont drive cars with bulbs out, let alone sell them that way regardless of the simplicity of it so I understand where he is coming from

I saw this one get listed too - its a Lux that has been partially de-luxed and a 95, surprised its at 16k already. I have had many of these and the 98.5-99 models always have seemed tighter and well built. I would stick to at least 97+ with the multi stage paint and other goodies but some prefer OBD1 which again, I understand.

Precisely.

The 95 dakar does look to be a solid car and it appears the paint has been very well kept, but lux package in a coupe doesn't fly with me. I'm also a little weary about a head gasket at that mileage.

I couldn't agree more about the 98.5-99 sentiments. I try and explain it sometimes, but it's something you really just have to experience to understand.

96+. 97 was a facelift year, not the year the E36 received OBD2 and the 3.2 (96).

I am aware, I guess what I meant to say was it seems that the 98.5-99 cars and later were better built, didnt have as many interior problems with them peeling and falling apart etc.
