1994 E-32 to go for? Replaced block and trans.
Well if my 90 with 205K miles was not purring quite well with new brakes and driveshaft and it was not so far away I would have to consider this one even if it is tax time. Of course as we all know E-Bay cars can sound better than they look on inspection but I have used the web to find my last three cars and two of them I purchased remotely and had shipped. All three have been good deals but I look for the highest value over color or wheel style for example.
As some of you know I take a more pragmatic view of auto ownership then some but that is a forced view because of financial priorities is business not wheels. The two main reasons to say away from a 1994 is the engine and transmission and if you can trust the seller these have been addressed. If it could be bought in the $5K range and only needed the regular stuff one should be looking at driving it for another 75 - 100K miles without spending the major bucks plus at that price one could afford to pass on collision and comp insurance if so desired to self insure these. At a different time and place this would be one I would be very seriously checking out.
Only one thing is negative that I can see at this point with my mindset. It is a dealerís car and I have never gone that route. To date I have stayed with my rule to only buy from current owners. Two reasons, one an owner knows more about the car than a dealer and two an owner will more often put themselves in your shoes mentally and sometimes even over stress the negatives more than a dealer in my opinion.
Same year, low miles but too many adjectives
While the first one highly interested me at twice the miles I did not get the sense the seller has the desire to offer any meat in the write-up. For some reason a ton of pictures make me wonder. That is just me.
Talking about sidestepping E-Bay!
I guess this is one way to promote one you want to part out. :)
The statement, "Payment is due within 3 days, after which the item will be relisted and buyer reported and banned from ebay permanently!" leads me to think he is the owner of E-Bay. :)
I wonder if I win the auction for say $5 does that
mean I can specify which part sold indidually I want for my winning bid like say the engine.Larry
Good question. Where there even a 91 740i sold?
This has got to be one of the more strange E-bay car postings I have seen. His 100% positive feedback could drop to 75% if he is not careful but his power to get one banned from E-Bay for life would stop me from even thinking about placing a bid. :) I will send him the following question and we can see if he adds it to his listing, "Say if I win the auction for $25 and I decide the part I want is the engine can you tell me what the shipping cost will be zip 86322?"
