The guy local to me bought it on EBay in Feb. 2005. The car is Granite Silver Metallic, not blue. All the work was done professionally by Active Autowerke in Miami, FL. The books and records for this car is in a binder that is 4 inches thick. It has every reciept ever recieved on the car. And I counted over $60,000 in reciepts from the buildup alone! Me and the guy have become really good friends and he was honest with me and told me that he won the auction for $14,999 and paid $1500 to professionally ship it from California. So based upon that, he told me to make him an offer. I was going to offer him $16,000 and be done with it. This car is by far the nicest tubocharged E36 I have ever seen. The motor is built to handle over 600HP.
Once I get tired of the 400HP it's putting to the ground right now, I'll probably go to AA and do the upgraded turbo, software and injectors and get over 600RWHP. This car has tons of potential and the only reason that the guy is selling it is because he is trying to buy some real estate.
All the leather in the car is brand new. It has manual heated vaders up front. The guy added headrests for the back. It has a V1 hardwired. The Air/Fuel guage is digital which I thought was cool. It has keyless entry with window break sensor. It has a switch to manually turn on the aux fan. It also has a switch to manually turn on and off the water injection. By default, the water injection comes in at 10lbs of boost. It hasa BBK up front, M3 rear brakes. SSR competitions all the way around, wrapped in bridgestone potenza tires.
It has a full custom woodgrain interior, M3 guage cluster, a basstube in the back. And of course it has a turbo with FM intercooler. This thing is quick...it hits 15lbs of boost at 4000RPM and hauls ass. I was at 100 before I knew it. At first it scared the living hell out of me, but after a few more runs, it put a big ass grin on my face.
So you guys think that $16,000 is a good and fair price for this car? Keep in mindt hat it is a 1992 325i that started out as an automatic
