I think thats priced a little high. In I think '10 I cant remember. I bought the black 97 M3 I posted on here a couple pages back for 6,2 with 12X,XXX miles. Its was under 125, i think like 122 but I cant remember.
Some points that come to mind.
- Run a vin check/autocheck/carfax type deal. PM me the vin and ill do it for ya. Or send you the link to the site.
- Doesn't look like it has vaders.
- Does look like it has champagne interior like my door panels. In which case is a very rare BMW individual option.
- Be careful of people who do oil changes right before sales. I find they are usually trying to hide the fact that the old oil had coolant in it!
- Trim pieces are missing. And they are expensive.
- Check the RSMs from the inside of the car. You need to pull the carpeting away. You'll looking for shock tower failure or previous repairs.
- Guarantee you he doesn't know or have records for when most of this list was last done.
Thermostat, water pump, radiator, control arms/bushings, rtabs, shocks (prob original), guibo/csb, engine/tranny mounts, cooling hoses, clutch, headgasket, compression check, diff clutches, power steering fluid (5 bucks says its black.)etc.
- Check for matching body panels by vin # sticker. Front fenders and trunk have em in easy to see spots.
- also check coolant color, if its green call the guy a tool and tell him to go F himself. Only blue coolant by BMW or any other coolant formulated to not have the contaminates in it that cause electrosys should be used on a car with an aluminum cylinder head that has electrical current running thru the motor.
- Avoid slammed cars they are usually owned by tools who care more about what other people think of them than there assets.
- Fender liners are missing! (1) They are expensive (2) Them missing means rocks and road debris will kick up onto the body. Which will cause "cuts" which will ultimately lead to rust which is car cancer. In the winter it kicks up road salt and will accelerate this rust process.
p.s. I actually like the steering wheel. Ill trade you for a stock one if you want/get the car.
