    Holy mother of robbery....

    So I was just scrolling through eBay to see if I can find a standard, top of the range e36 saloon and to see what kind of condition the e36s are on eBay and came across this advert. 1st I was surprised by the price and now I am still surprised!! It on sale for apparently 3 449 and it's only a 318i and doesn't even have leather seats or the OBC or all round power windows. Maybe it was owned by someone famous or something, but the price is still steep. Granted it's only done about 60k miles, but still, it's not old enough to be considered a classic just yet!

    1997 BMW 318I SE MANUAL 4-DOOR SALOON | eBay

    Any thoughts about the price?

    On sale from Dick Lovett, so it will be an 'Approved Used Car' complete with warranty.

    Yes, it's a steep price, but low mileage, it will have a FSH to be an AUC, and is probably the only E36 on sale in the UK backed up by that sort of warranty.

    Irrespective, that's a lot of money

    I think he's mis-spelled 'M3' . Regardless of condition he must the most optimistic seller I've seen lately.
