Boils down to the fact that you dont seem to have any understanding of the estimate they gave you all you saw was the $$$ and upsell maintenance

You should be buying a Honda, because you passed on a reasonable M3.
Your comment is completley off......(Bankruptcy,Bitching,Moaning and buying a Honda) I missed out? (can't miss something I didnt want or have)
The (04 Imola/Imola Red E46 M3 is on BAT now)I paid for the PPI & it was disputed..not by me by the seller.. only to agree that the PPI was right...and then finally offering to pay for the repair( which was attached to BAT auction at half the price). prior to my PPI I was told the car just pass a PPI and sent me a copy? I was told no need for another... long story short I passed.
Very nice car should sell...I feel I found the better car for today and tomorrow.

I recently purchaseed a investment grade 2006 Alpine White/Cinn one owner/all books/3keys/2window sticker/service history only from BMW from 5miles to current 40k miles (still has the original clear bra on the entier front end (yellowing now). pics soon

Thanks...Good luck is a derivative of hard work and I've been working hard & searching hard so I guess luck is working out

Investment grade? Just hoping to maintain it's vaile..(not losing value in its first few years unlike new car which trends down for the first 5-7yr.
