van 2000 Jeep Cherokee Two Doors We hebben er gisteren naar gekeken in termen van opties of overmaat, wat betekent dat er veel te bieden heeft op het gebied van eenvoud en onderhoudsgemak. Helaas lijkt zijn deel van de opwinding de vraagprijs niet waard. Voor $ 7.488 was dat te rijk voor ons bloed, waardoor de Jeep 57 procent dobbelstenen verloor.

We hebben allemaal old-school infomercials gezien waarin een product het beste ooit zou moeten zijn, nadat de adverteerder heeft gezegd: “Wacht, er is meer”, om het nog verbazingwekkender te maken. Die trigger-frase is bedoeld om hedge-sitters te motiveren door ervoor te zorgen dat de aldus uitgedrukte totale waarde de aanvankelijke verwachtingen overtreft.

vandaag 1998 BMW M3 Cabrio Het is een beetje een “wacht maar er is meer” soort auto. Allereerst, hier in E36 gedaante, is de M3 duidelijk een versie van de reguliere 3-serie. Bovendien biedt het een overvloed aan Dinah’s snelle onderdelen die dit een interessantere deal maken.

The seller encapsulates the car’s attractions thusly:

In a nutshell, this car is super clean for the miles, an absolute beast, and a total head-turner. If you don’t like getting attention from everyone around you, this is not the car for you… lol

According to the ad, this M3 has been “Meticulously maintained its entire life with tens of thousands of dollars worth of maintenance and repair records.” Some of that maintenance involved updating the cooling system from the OEM boobytrapped plastic bits to a Mishimoto setup as well as a recent rebuild of the Powerdyne (didn’t they make the Terminator?) supercharger. The seller stresses that all the performance parts are California street legal, which is a considerable feat for a car with such a deep bench of engine mods.

Altogether, the performance parts are claimed to make 300 horsepower at the rear wheels. Those wheels, by the way, are Dinan alloys and are wrapped in new Kumho rubber. There are lots of other mods on the car, which is not totally surprising considering its age. What’s a little more surprising is that the car has all of this hardware and has done 187,000 miles. That’s a lot, but they don’t seem to show in the Estoril Blau paint or the plastic bits and pieces. The bodywork appears straight, as does the fabric of the top, although the plastic rear window could stand a thorough de-yellowing.

Other issues include some curbing on one of the wheels, a tear in the leather on the back seat squab, and the need to replace the tension straps for the top. Perhaps more worrisome than any of that, the seller says that the rear main seal has started to weep. That’s a gearbox-out job and while it’s being fixed, renewing the clutch would be a good idea too.

Other than those issues, the car seems to be a solid citizen, although one would imagine things like bushing and bearings might need some love sometime soon. It might be worth that investment in time and future expense seeing as it’s a bit of a rare bird and is set up in a pretty decent fashion. Also, kudos to the seller for the comprehensive description (both good and bad) in the ad and for making available all the photo documentation.

This M3 had been listed at $29,000 for a few weeks but apparently didn’t get any serious bites at that price. In that ad, the threat was made that if Craigslist failed to seal the deal at that price, the car was going to Bring a Trailer. It’s now been re-listed on Craigslist at $23,000, and it’s up to us to see whether the bites will come at that new lower price.

What do you think, is this Dinan-ized M3 convertible worth that much as it’s presented in its ad? Or, do the miles and the mods—and the price—pile too much on?

You decide!
