220,000 miles on chassis

100,000 on remanufactured S50 motor.

All new suspension and steering - front and rear...

Stock wheels with brand new Potenza tires...


Seems like all they can say is well the door panels are not installed and that warrants a HUGE price reduction.

I cant get anyone to pay the $4600 Bottom line I need.

I see others paying more and have been watching eBay....


Perhaps the Fast and Loud episode will inspire someone to buy my car which is the exact same one Aaron bought...

Just had to vent to and hope for some advice from other e36 M3 owners.
Good Morning! Location and pics of the car please?

You should probably just install the door panels if you want to sell. Then buyers can't nit pick anything.

Why don't you post it up on this site? I'm sure for $5k there will be potential buyers coming into the spring season.

$4600 sounds cheap.

It can be hard to sell a partially disassembled car.

Reinstall the door panels, any anything else off the car if you can.

Clean it up well and relist.

Maybe think about a higher asking price as well. It seems counter intuitive, but sometimes a price more in line with the market instead of a rock bottom sale price gets more, and better interest.

Nevermind; https://www.panjo.com/buy/1995-bmw-m3-338288

Looks like a $2k car. What did you expect?

Borrow a vacuum before you try to sell it.
