1998 BMW M3 Sedan for sale

As I’ve said before, the E36 and I go way back and they always strike a chord in my heart. Especially when it’s a sedan, and especially when it’s Estoril Blue. So blah blah blah, one of the best handling cars of the 90s, 240hp inline-6 that sings, yeah yeah. These cars are just dead sexy, end of story.

This 1998 sedan on eBay is painfully similar to the M3 that gave me my first taste of speed, down to the unparalleled Estoril/Magma combo and M Double Spoke IIs.

The lights and M3 Lightweight vinyl wouldn’t have been top priorities for me, but I don’t hate them.  Mostly this looks like a nice stock M3, devoid of the overblown modifications or packed-on miles that plague many E36s.  The interior isn’t top-notch, and it’s a shame to see those great Magma seats scarred up.  Also, can’t NOT mention the salvage title, but it seems well-explained and properly taken care of.

Bottom line:  This is an imperfect example of one of my perfect cars, and it could end up being a great deal with bidding starting at about $7k.  Just remember how much fun these cars are and ask yourself if ~$10k is worth it.  I think so.

    Trying to resell a salvage title car (even if decent) is a living hell. People fishing for those cars expect to pay $3000. You will find yourself dealing with real jerks. That was my experience trying to help sell a pretty sound salvage title GTI for a friend. I Like the Blue Sedan combo. The interior colour, not so much.
