My bad back is currently preventing me from working and earning an income so it is a black Friday for more than one reason. I have to let my track toy go. Would love it to go to someone in the community. Let me know if you have any questions.

That web address appears to be working. I wonder why it didn't work for you?

Any way I could close the distance? Shop inspection? Lemonsquad does inspections on cars older than 20 years for $250. I could split it with you. Could also work out something for delivery. Meet you half way or something? Want to be as accommodating as I can to people here.

Is the car in reasonable DD condition? Does it have functioning AC & cruise? Does it have a sunroof (can't tell for sure, initial glance at photos made me think not but closer inspection says "maybe")? What width are the BBS wheels and are they staggered or square? How about limited slip differential (seems some 325's had limited slip but not traction control)?

In reply to secretariata:

Yes it is in reasonable DD condition for a 23 year old car that is not in mint condition or been garaged its whole life. It would be my DD if it were more practical than my Subaru Impreza. Cruise works. AC needs recharging but should work fine. I've never really used it. Yes it does have a sunroof. I've never used it either. Have never opened it to verify it functions properly. Had no use for it. It's an IS so yes, LSD with no traction control. Wheels are 8" wide square. One thing not mentioned in the original CL ad is driver's side and passenger's side window seals are showing their age and should probably be replaced. Trunk seal should probably be replaced too. I have updated the CL ad to reflect all of this. I have also lowered the price a bit.

Thanks for answering my questions. I don't have any need for a sunroof either and was hoping it didn't have one.

I need to think about this and see if I want to have "the conversation" with SWMBO. We currently have a full fleet and adding one more will put us into "more cars than parking spots" territory which has been something I agreed not to do many years ago...

How soon are you going to list it on Ebay?

Probably this week some time. Need to move it out. Possibly have a guy from North Georgia coming up to look at it this next weekend.

OK, color me interested. Had "the conversation" with SWMBO and expect to wake up tomorrow morning.

I assume you have a clear title, in your name, and in hand (just checking as I've had all 3 turn into problems in the past year)? I'd be interested in seeing it either Friday evening or Saturday morning if it is still around then. I assume there is somewhere that we can get the title notarized after hours? I'm in the Columbia, SC area so I guess it's a 2.5 to 3 hour drive to get to you. I'll send you a text tomorrow.

In reply to secretariata:

Yes. The title is clear and in my name and in my hand. Please take the time to reread the CL add before you commit to making a trip up here. I updated it yesterday morning with a few more details and a price drop. Hope none of the added items are dealbreakers for you. Again, the car is 23 years old and not perfect. Hope to hear from you.

I too live in Asheville and am very interested, but wouldn't be able to do anything until this weekend, at the earliest. That has to be one of the nicest E36 interiors I've seen. Regardless, I am a notary and can help facilitate the title transfer after banking/DMV hours, if necessary. I'm guessing you do mostly track events? I don't recognize the car from the autox community. Good Luck!

In reply to chrispy:

The interior is decent but 23 years old and not perfect. Wasn't much of a concern for me since it was primarily my track car. No autocross for me. If I were keeping it the next thing to happen would be for that interior to come out and safety equipment to go in.

Secratariata is coming up late Friday afternoon. Unfortunately, I'll be showing the car to him in Hendersonville. If the deal falls through I can let you know. Unless you wanted to get a look before that.

Bad news. Maybe. It's not an M3. Would be perfect for your LS swap though. That's what I was going to do with it eventually.

Haha, that's not supposed to read "E36 M3" as in the car, it's "E36 M3" as in the forum filter word. And yes, it would be a perfect home for the LS.
