    not sure in that condition but 75k is what i'd pay for a very clean 95 355 w/ 30k done, records and reasonable mileage, so start adding up repair costs and subtract.

    are you planning to do the repairs yourself? if you're going to end up paying a dealer to fix it up, seems like you might as well look for a straight 355. send a PM to martin (or any of the other sponsors), his prices always seem the most reasonable and his reputation is excellent (i've never dealt with him personally but just based on posts on fchat and such).

    Bill - did you see redhead's response? Scroll up to Post #5. Best to read about it than experience it.

    Pa$$ on thi$ one - it'$ $omebody el$e'$ headache.

    There are plenty of other 355's. Lawdy knows how many cars many an F-Chatter passed up on in order to get the right one.

    Run Lad....run far, far away! Run swift and run hard. Run fast as a Husky. Run like the wind. Run like you do in a dream when you're being chased by a Grizzly Bear or a Polar Bear (they're just as mean)....and don't let Mr. Seller see where you've run to. Change your name and go into hiding until the seller gives up looking for you. Or else just buy it.

    I agree with Jerry, except for the dream part...
    I always run in slow motion in my dreams, now that would be hell.
