    Hi all, been looking for the right car for some time, finally found an SLK 350 and bought it today. I found the info on here invaluable to the search. E36 M3 convertible anyone?

    Ha, yes and I actually use them but only because I’m old! Funnily enough one of them popped out driving along today and was swinging from the wires til it showed itself. Went back ok. Had it 10 years but friends Mercs always impressed and I’ve been looking for the right car since last May. Looking forward to this summer.

    Welcome, to be fair the E36 BM are handsome cars, maybe hold on to it for a few more weeks if you can, they say you get a higher price if you sell a convertaible in the spring. Never really known if that's true or not!!

    Hi and welcome.
    As above hang on till the weather improves. Always easier to get a good price as the weather turns warmer and sunnier...

    Thanks for welcome guys, sitting here awaiting the delivery truck and its started snowing! Re the M3, I was thinking that it may take some time to sell so was going to start the process early, in a week or 2. Plus her indoors wants it gone!

    Hope the snow held off! This weather is biblical, my heart goes out to everyone in Shrewsbury and everywhere flooded, awful. Now I'm no expert on the E36 but I reckon if you price it well it'll go, still a very popular motor. I'd get it on as soon as this horrible weather turns nice!
