The base 2.8 Coupe was never sold in Canada. I bought my 99 in 2007 in western NY, 49xxx orig. miles. It now has 77xxx miles. It's now in its third Canadian winter. Only failures have been PCV valve and battery. Replaced the water pump at 54xxx miles before it broke (they all do). Unbelievable attention getter. Mine is one of 3 in our city of about 1 mill. Fantastic to drive in all conditions. Have a good set of snows on it, am only stopped by 6" or more dumps of snow, and then only until plowed. Heater is great, love the heated seats. If you don't want attention, then don't drive this car. I get questions and offers all the times. Chicks dig it.

I bought this car on my birthday, and
never looked back. When looking to
replace an 87 325is, I stumbled upon
the coupe. It's always fasinated me ,
when I saw it on the lot, I asked for
a test drive. That sold me. It is
the tightest handling, most stylish
and unique car I have ever owned.
Most people have buyers regret after a
any new car.. its a big purchase after
all. I had NONE. By the way, get
used to people staring and pointing..
there were only a few thousand of
these made. I drove it through the
WORST New England winter I have ever
seen, and it handled it with aplomb.
If you have the chance, buy it.
