What a great looking BMW, with a nice service pedigree, for $5k.

These older BMW's are becoming more and more interesting to me. The one thing I have loved about my E46 is the availability of parts and the friendliness of the design where replacing the part isn't a huge pain in the ass. Just like my bad water and fuel pumps... water pump is about an hour job including re-filling the coolant and checking the air pockets. The fuel pump is maybe 30 minutes and it's done. I used to roll my eyes at Rick about how he used to wax poetic about BMW's, but I get it. Even with my lowly old 323i, I get it.

That was the pinnacle of BMW design! Before they were Bangled.

Man that is tidy for 30 years old. I doubt its the original paint, but still that is really darn NICE. I also like the period BBS aftermarket wheels, something I usually detest on vintage cars.

I LOVE seeing older all original mint condition cars like this. Very beautiful. In and out.

Direct opposite for Audi's.

Just sayin.

You want to change an exhaust gasket?
Power train removal
You want to change a water pump?
Front clip removal
You want to change the serpentine belt?
Front clip removal
You want to change an altenator?
Front clip removal
You want to fix the sonic alarm?
Sorry. Not fixable.
You want to re-upholster the sagging head-liner?
Sorry. You need all new A/B/C trim pillar pieces because they WILL BREAK. because Audi tech's don't bother trying to save them on the NEW car's if they have to remove them..
You want to fix that squeaking suspension?
8 Control arms please. kthxbie.

Not sure why, but I have always liked the front end of these. A friend drives an '86 E28 and it is actually rather fun to drive.
