Most fun car I’ve had in along time!

Car is reliable, needs nothing I have all service records! Just feel it’s time to let it go hopefully to someone that has more time to enjoy her.


Favorite car owned

This car goes above and beyond expectations. I have owned many high end cars, but there is something so simple and pure about this car that is perfect. I love driving this incredible car.


I love the e36

So I've owned multiple e36. From 318s to 325is. Now, finally owning an m3, a supercharged one as well and it is by far the most fun I've ever had in a car. I've had it for a little over a year and a half so far with no major mechanical issues. It did however have a rebuilt engine, vanoss, and so much more. It's worth every penny. As an enthusiast I love it more than anything. As a driver, it is a beautifully balanced car with so much potential. I'd recommend it to anyone.
