    Hello all,

    I've just finished Uni and i've decided to treat myself. I've put down a deposit and I can't wait to pay off the full amount in a couple of weeks.

    It's an E36 M3 EVO, it's covered 74 000 miles. It's got a blowing exhuast and a small chip in the windscreen other than that it's in good condition. Nice and standard.

    Pics care of Autotrader







    I was toying between this and a 944 S2 but in the end I decided to go with the M3

    I was looking at that on Autotrader, had been following it for several weeks half heartedly!

    Sounds like a nice car with the full kit

    I've been looking for a few weeks and wanted to view it but wasn't sure where Langford was. I'd been putting in my university postcode as a reference for the search facility it said 80 miles away. I then looked up the town on multimap and saw that it was about 2 miles away from where i'm currently working. So on my lunch break I popped down gave it a good going over and decided to go for it. Was there anything in particular that was putting you off?

    There's nothing that put me off ....... its just that i don't want a manual, and if I bought an E36 M3, I'd just be buying one, for the sake of buying one and end up storing it and using it as an occasional company demo vehicle

    Really I want to replace my 328i with an automatic, I don't trust the SMG BMW gearboxes so after a bit of thought, this ruled out the E36 & E46 M3's. I'm realistically looking at a Merc E55K AMG, which also means that my nearing requirements for a 4 door car will also be taken care off.

    Ah right, that's fair enough. I'd been warned away from the SMG boxes as well. An E55K would no doubt fill any gap formed by the lack of an M3.....and then some.

    Bloody hell
    I ended university with a sack load of debts and a masters degree
    It turned out to be pretty useless and I had a struggle paying the debt off...so hats off to you for buying an Evo however youve managed it

    Great looking car and E36 M3 are one of my all time favourite owned cars...

    Well, i'm currently in around £9k of debt through loans etc for the 3 year course. Fortunately my parents are helping out with the course fee cost for the MSc as well as the accomodation so i'm very fortunate in that respect. I do plan on paying them back one day. I've got some savings which i'll use for living expenses this year. I'm working for 7 weeks this summer to try and finance the car. The pay is good, the 70 hour weeks, not so. I've managed to get the car for £3700 so i'm happy enough with that.

    £3700

    Holy bloomers!!
    Is that the going rate for an M3 evo nowadays or did you get a bargain??

    It seems only a minute ago that the cheapest Evo was like £8,000 (was actually 2 years or more I guess)

    Sounds like youve done well mate. Enjoy it after the toil of university
