    I know your Valeo didn't sell on BaT, but E36 low mileage hardtops seem to do well. Why not throw it there?

    There's a very similar one on bat now, though this one appears nicer

    The one on BAT looks like a clean, honest car. 10k more miles, some aftermarket add-on's, no power seats.

    My car was sold/certified by Enthusiast Auto Group . They won't put their signature on any car, it has to be a truly special, unmolested example.

    BAT wants cars with low reserves, they tend to flood the market with similar examples simultaneously, thus canabalizing sale prices, and people don't want to spend 5% on a buyers premium.

    I had at least 10 people contact me after the Valeo auction trying to make side deals. That said, it's not out of the question, I'd just rather not.

    Makes sense, and I get it, there must be 10+ BMWs and 15+ Porsche's at any given time live.

    Is it listed on Bimmerforum?

    The mileage is great. The only 2 detractors would be a sedan, and no Vadars (IMO, though ironically I want a 4 door personally because of kids, but this mileage is too nice). Do all of the VINs match?

    Possibly, I don't have it listed anywhere else currently. It's just hangin' out in the garage, as my cars don't go out in the winter months.

    I prefer sedans and I don't fit in Vadars, so for me, the way the car is equipped is a plus. All matching vins, all original paint.

    Dale, correct Vaders are one of the seat styles for e36’s.

    Personally, I don't like heavily bolstered seats for a street car. The one thing I didn't like about my Maranello was the seats.

    Sedans never had Vaders. Wife had 99 M3/4/5 and not available. Only coupes I think, don't recall a cabrio with them either. Coupes with lux got non-Vaders too
    Nice car. Looking for son, he'd keep it up properly but not quite a daily. GLWS.
    Hi guys.
    These are Vaders, in GB market M3 GT iirc. Dark Green with purple alcantara and Green leather.

    Bimmerforums seems to attract younger folks with no money.

    I sold my 2 M3's quickly for almost asking on Bmwcca classifieds. Have to join but worth it.

    Also a great place to find well maintained quality, sometimes at very good prices.
