    I've been searching high and low for an e90 with low miles and a 6 speed manual transmission. Turns out it is a lot harder than it would seem! I finally found one yesterday (after searching 2 months) that was 60 miles from the house, so I hit the road first thing in the morning to go pick it up. My e36 is getting some high miles on it so I wanted to get a new dd for work and then convert the e36 into a play toy.

    I'm not an automotive photographer but here are a few snaps I got yesterday.

    2008 BMW 328i
    57000 miles

    For fun, here's some shots of my e36 in it's current state. I can't wait to do some things to it.

    That is sweet.
    The roof rack has to go on the e36, then add a big chrome fart can under the rear bumper for that zoom-zoom sound. :D

    I got the AC fixed on my '93 Chevy S10 and '03 Astro Van.

    So those are like "new rides" for me.

    I know what you mean. I am doing repairs on my '85 Ford work van and just had an axle put in my wife's 2006 Dodge Caravan.

    I was really lucky to find a great AC mechanic. The dude is like a 10nth degree black belt when it comes to auto AC and he's not out to rape you either. Clean, smart, honest.......and FAST as hell. Prices were very fair.

    Amazing.

    There are some good ones out there. The guy who put an axle in the minivan charged me less than his estimate.

    The old van, I will do all the work myself.

    Thankfully I can do most all the work on these myself which is why I buy them. I definitely wouldn't if I wasn't mechanically inclined.
