A friend just won this one. Hasn't picked it up yet. It'll be interesting to see how closely the condition tracks the listing.

Really desiring another E36 M3. Sigh.

They pop up literally every week on BaT. If you lack willpower and want an E36 M3, just check in daily.

Very nice and it's the correct silver as well. Artic silver is far superior to titanium.

Every once in awhile I notice how panel and door gaps continue to get smaller over the years, presumably as manufacturing technologies improve.

That pic made me think of it again. In absolute terms, it's a small difference I guess, but you can see how it's enabled designers to do things they would have had great difficulty with in the past.

I thought about thinking about this car.....



But didn't really see getting into an E34. It ended up going for less than I expected.
Would have been interesting. But - I had an E38 of the same year (for those that remember - the red one). Want to get a bit newer for a car I will use about 1/2 time.... The 997 fills the other half.

Interesting that a 16k car had three owners. I mean it's not an exotic.

This car will probably get past 50 unless there are reasons EAG does not already own it.

Edit: Already opening bids at $21k.
Now at $38k with 4 days to go.

The search goes on.
