Local Poser

I drive a 135i now, but I still miss my '01 330ci a lot, so I figured I'd give a shout. Didn't make it to any events this summer, sadly.

I'm in Waterford.

Nice 323ci. That price is steep are you trying to get all your mod money back? You can buy a 2001-2003 M3 with the same mileage for $15,000 excellent condition.

Yeah not trying to get all my money from mods... I've spent well over $20,000 in parts/labor bud. And if you did your research right... a lot of 323ci with my mileage or more is running anywhere from 10k-12k... I know how much KBB is saying but I'm looking at the demographic standpoint. And I did my research for M3's in Michigan for awhile now and its impossible to find a excellent condition M3 for $15k.

Suprised you never did a trans swap, nice 323 though. Hey, if you feel your car is worth that much, than that's what you ask for it, period. Good luck with the sale.

Good luck. I paid $7,400 cash for my 323ci with almost the same miles last year. A M3 for $18,000 with 67,000 miles excellent condition just sold in toledo on monroe street all stock and triple black. Your best bet if you are asking that much is to part out. Are you looking to sell those wheels? Are they lina corse lm reps? PM me if you want to sell them.

I am in Plymouth 2004 325xi. Just getting started, spent the last two weekends changing fluids, tuning up, and getting my radio installed. Now my project is to build a DIS GT1 computer so I can program my car. I love to turn wrenches, so if anyone needs any help.....

Yeah, unfortunately I didn't make it. Between the rain and the rear tires being shot, figured I'd skip. A few of us are doing a drive at the end of the month; you should try and make that!
