    Hi BMW family

    Here's another case of "I don't have the time my car deserves". This 3.0Si came Polaris / red from the factory and I wanted so badly to restore and repaint it (PO repainted it white sometime ago). It's running great and is a very fun car to drive in its stock condition (no major performance tweaks yet).

    I just posted it on Craiglist and would prefer to sell it to an enthusiast here. I am open to feedback and criticism on the ad and price. I've tried to be as fair and transparent about the car's condition as I can.

    Thank you,
    Matt

    This would probably be better in the For Sale section because the ads stay on the first page longer. E3 General isn't as busy as E9 though so up to you...

    Personally, I like when E3's or E3 specific parts get listed here instead of the for sale section!

    Update for those who are tracking E3 prices: I sold this car today for $6,000. Apparently it is heading back to Europe for a restoration. I hope to own another E3 very soon. What a car!

    Here is an archive version of the ad with the photos:

    Do you have any photos you could post on this thread? It would be nice to have them with the selling price for future reference. I can add it to the registry too..

    I updated my listing above to include an archived version of my Craigslist ad. Thanks for the suggestion!
