Clearing the driveway, because I've got no reason to own five cars.

I'm doubt anyone here is interested in something like this, but I'm throwing it out there anyway just in case someone needs a "first car".

It's got 215,000 miles or so, a windshield leak after a replacement, and in general isn't in perfect shape. The interior is gorgeous, the manual transmission is a pleasure to operate, and it doesn't feel tired at all. Shocks "need" replacing, but they're fine on the road. You only notice on those irritating parking lot speed bumps.

I can dig into more details, but what you're looking at here is a weekend warrior for corner carving, or a decent first car for a kid who you think should be able to wear a "Man Pedal" shirt; so long as you don't mind being nickeled and dimed on occasion. I honestly think it should carry at least one more person through high school or college before retirement. I'm pretty sure that was it's task for about ten years before I ended up with it.

So far as the car itself... If this thing had been rear wheel drive in 2000, BMW would have been in deep shit. It's an excellent vehicle. It doesn't drive like a FWD setup, though.

The thing is idiot-proof, honestly. If you manage to wrap this around a tree, you were trying to do so. I figured I'd slap $2,500 on it.

I'm not going to waste bandwidth here if nobody wants it, but if you're interested, I'll toss up some pictures. It's in no way perfect, as I believe it was a college car for several people, but damned if it didn't hold up well aside from the dents and dings. The interior isn't too far from being nearly perfect, but it's being held back a bit in a couple of places.

Despite the leak, it doesn't smell at all. No mustiness, no nothing. Just point the heat at the windshield in the winter and roll on.

Cheers,

Kennith

Here's a Craigslist-worthy shot:

Yes, I forgot to put the new sticker on the plate. Happens all the time. I'm paying my reminder fee for the Rover today. :ROFLMAO:

I'm not saying you'll feel like you've won the lottery if you buy this car, but your kid certainly will. It's either this or a clapped out Chevy Aveo, right?

Cheers,

surprised to see such hazy headlights and that amount of embedded brake dust.

I expect this would sell locally on craigslist quickly, I sold a well used 96 civic with 200k in an afternoon for 1500 on Craigslist

Oh, those wheels are pitted. They'd clean up a bit, but it would take more scouring and polishing than I'm willing to do. There isn't much paint left in those areas, because the dust ate it away in the past. I almost had them powder coated, but in the end didn't feel like spending sixty bucks a corner on the vehicle and bothering to dismount the tires.

Not much point bothering with them unless you really want to spend some time bringing them back out.

Only one headlight is hazy, and it didn't want to polish out too easily. The previous owner used it through college, and I suspect the owner before him may have, as well. He rear-ended a yellow H2 at a light, and broke the headlight. Nothing of any consequence was damaged, though. It just drops the value.

There's only so much I can keep up with right now, and that light and the wheels aren't on my list of things to care about.

Cheers,

It sold. The guy got a great deal, and I cleared a spot in the driveway.

That wasn't the most beautiful car in the world, but it held up very well as a daily driver over time. I'm sure he'll manage to spruce it back up.

I just didn't have the energy to do so.

Here it was cleaned up a bit:

Figured I'd do a slightly better job with the photos. Couldn't be too fancy, but at least I washed it first.

Anyway, it's gone.
