I had an estoril blue M3 coupe about 12 years ago and loved it, since then a lot of cars have come and gone but I have always longed for another. So when a friend was selling this sedan I couldn't pass it up. Its fairly rust free, its a salvage title and the Carfax reads like a horror story. It says 154k miles on the OD , but car fax says its probably closer to 330K miles.. still pulls hard, racing dynamics rear apron, bilstiens, euro springs, 5MT. It needs love, lots of love. But who can pass up a sale!

Starting with the interior, bought a leathertique kit and will post pics this wednesday of that process.

In the last 6 months I have bought 2 BMW's this is my daily E39 525i 5 speed. 1 owner, 154,000kms (80k miles) needed brakes and that was it. I put on used H&R's for $80 and about 10K miles.. great car, 0 rust.. best part, I paid $1500 CDN for it! So for less then 4000 I have an e39 and an M3... a man of great taste

I was considering a $4k M3 a co-worker of a friend has for sale. I think it's an OBD1 3.2 car as well. Just can't justify a project at the moment.

You found a 525i for $1500 in Canada???

Wow, All I can seem to find are rusty old 318's and they want $1500 for those.
