There's three, count 'em, three, very GRM-worthy BMWs on sale in my hometown. I never see this many cool cars for sale in my hometown at once. Two are def. not Challenge-priced and I'm sure the third isn't so I'm posting them here.

-'94 E36 M3 (the car, not poop) sedan, silver/black, manual, 77K, $9500. I didn't get a closer look as I was late for something, plus it's way out of my price range. It looked perfect on the outside.

-'85 BMW 635csi (E24 chassis), gold/tan, leather, sunroof, manual, 122K, $5500. Front spoiler is bent in the middle and the paint looks like some tried to give it the brushed look while drunk, but it's straight otherwise with no discernible rust. It's being sold by a very capable mechanic who specializes in Euro cars.

-Unknown year BMW 2002tii (has square taillights and ginormous bumpers, so '74?). Red/tan, manual, either 33K or 133K (odo has only 5 places), a little bit of surface rust on the driver's side rocker panel but no rust otherwise. Should be easy to fix with POR 15 or a patch. No price on the car.

I'd love to see these cars go to loving homes, esp. the 2002tii, they are super-rare. I'm seriously considering the E24 if the turbo-swapped FC I've been eying in NY gets sold or isn't up to scratch.

Is it just me or is that 6-series about a grand or more high? I think I'd have a hard time buying one with garbage paint for that kind of money...

Something funny there, as there was no e36 M3 sedan (or coupe for that matter) in 1994. Coupe arrived in 1995 and the sedan didn't get here until 1997.

Yeah, that 635 is more like $3k high if the paint is nasty.

There was a 1994 BMW Motorsport 325is that had most of the M3 body stuff, which is a cool car in its own right but no M3.
