Hi guys, long time lurker, rare poster here.

I'm selling an E36 sedan. 170k miles, automatic, non sport package. Yakima roof rack, decent clean black interior. Car is located at 36877, 2 hours west of Atlanta, just beside Columbus, GA.

I've used this for a work car the last few years, I've been saving it to do an LS swap and make it a track rat, but I have two other projects and realize two projects is the most I want to handle at one time.

The bad: 2 broken window regulators.

Leak in A/C system.

ABS computer is fried, so no ABS/traction control. Also makes it hesitate to upshift under hard acceleration sometimes.

Center driveshaft support bearing/giubo need replacement.

CRAP Maaco paintjob, done by a blind chimp on a Friday.

There's probably more, but those are the highlights.

The good;

Straight body/chassis (except for a tweaked LF fender)

Fairly clean interior. Still has that BMW smell inside.

Drives straight down the road.

1 year old cooling system overhaul.

Car is dead reliable and never fails to start. No problems with engine/electrical/suspension. No check engine lights.

Yakima roof rack, I've had more kids try to buy the rack alone from me Im thinking I need to be in the roof rack business.

Clear title in hand.

Car is worth more in parts than whole, if you are looking to build a Lemons car or a 2016 challenge car you could recoup a lot of the budget parting out whats unneeded.

I want 1500 bucks for it. I really don't need any trades, although I am freshening up my E36 M3 vert as we speak, and if you have any parts I could use there we may could work out partial trade.

Hit me up here, or text/call me at 256-307-54 one...two. (Craigslist spelling there because I dunno if scambots can read forums.)

Thanks guys, Josh

Think that rack would fit my 96 M3 coupe?

Nah, 2 door and 4 door roof mounting ears are totally different. However, if you're feeling spunky and want to double the practicality of your M3, all your 2 door components will fit this sedan chassis...
