Hellrot Heaven: 1995 BMW E36 325i 5-Speed 79K Mile Survivor – SOLD!
BMW’s E36 three-series produced throughout the 1990s represents the last analog cars with more traditional pre-flame-sided styling. Consequently, as prices declined many tuners sucked these up and modified them heavily. Finding what appears to be a very stock Hellrot over Black leather 5-speed on Craigslist in Westchester, Pennsylvania is a refreshing change from what we usually come across. The private seller is currently asking $4,800 for his 325i, which using the NADA Guides Classic Car Online Valuation Tool confirms he has it priced a few hundred dollars higher than the “Low”, “Average”, and “High” retail value range of $2,350, $3,350, and $4,400, respectively.
There’s a reason Car & Driver magazine listed the E36 Three-Series on its Ten Best list every year BMW offered between 1990 and 2000: these are great handling cars with excellent steering feel that became the bench mark for all of the copy cats. It appears this BMW enthusiast replaced all of the critical brake and suspension parts with stock parts and we love that the only apparent modification is the addition of body-colored M3 side sills; no harm, no foul in our opinion. Good luck with the purchase! If you’re looking for a RADwood-eligible car that is an excellent car to wind out on a back road that also has room for a couple of kids, you can’t do much better than this E36. Good luck with the purchase!
