    Looking for E36 M3
    Hi All, been searching the classifieds on and off for a couple of years. In the next six months i will probably be looking to purchase an E36 M3, Im not bothered about evo or non evo but i would love a saloon.

    However, looking at the market right now it seems people have gone mad. An E36 used to range from 7-12k and suddenly people on piston heads want 19-25k.

    Have people gone mad and just jumped on the classic hype or have i missed the boat and am seriously our of touch :oops:

    lol depends if you are a buyer or seller-i had my hellrot red one up for 14995[63.5k now lol] put put it up to 17995 after recieving some daft p.ex offers and frankly insulting cash offers[not had a viewer yet],sold my scimitar so not to fussed about moving it on now-but fancy anoother rs4 avant
    a serious sensible offer would buy mine,but if you were to put it up at what you would take folk just lowball you

    I guess its a hard one to Judge and it depends what kind of buyers you want to attract. Nothing worse than 300 offers for a shagged 318 and 2k your way :muttley:.
    I personally need to figure out my budget and sell the commuter car, market will have probably changed by then anyway.

    Prices are basically all over the place. You will have to sort through all the weeds to find something both good and reasonably priced.

    I can understand many jumping on the hype. It only takes one person to bit a silly asking price.

    I wouldn't want to be in the market for one today. Most ask silly money for piles of junk.

    Even non-M 6-pot E36's now demand strong money (at least in the EU LHD market).

    Id really love another e36 as a track / weekend / project but the prices are way out of touch with what you are getting. I only sold mine 2 years ago, and it seems already a big change in the average asking price. I may just buy a clean 318is and fit an s54 and evo rear end :oops2:

    Prices are all over the place here in NZ too... you can't find a good one for less than GBP15k and people are asking GBP20k for really good ones (although few to no buyers at that price).

    Can't see it, i am building a Z4 with a mate and we are nearer to that all in, shopping wisely. Granted its without the s54 but unless they are suddenly worth their weight in gold you should be able to build one for that sort of money without cutting many corners.

    They were crazy already, I bought mine with 90k on the clock (albeit tatty cosmetically but mechanically sound) for £2900! Back in 2011

    Sold it right before they went nuts (cheers!) to a guy in Germany who broke it for parts and sold everything in like a week

    I sold my immaculate Technoviolet evo coupe with 54k miles for Around £16k in March 2019. Chap came from Ireland and bought the car. The bodywork was immaculate and the paintwork original.
    As it had been stored for 4-5 years in a garage there were obviously no service stamps for that period. Because of this I had quite a few smart ass emails/people saying it isn’t fsh so they missed a top example.

    I would say you need £15-16k for a very good car. You will get it as the ones at £20k aren’t selling.
    The red saloon in Scotland does look really nice.

    its nice to have a history book to see whats done,but with the age of these cars its present condition matters more than a few stamps in a book-fsh with all reciepts is good,but not much use if the car is a poultice

    Problem is you know how mechanics work on old cars. I handle my car like a soft boiled egg. I would rather have a pampering owner's stamp than a BMW dealer stamp.
