10-12K buys you a ragged out high mileage rat.
Agreed although with unibody side damage anything is game. This should be a $25k or more car.

None of this is repairable by PDR?

I have not had a PDR shop look at it. I suppose it wouldn't hurt to see what they say.

From the photo, it doesn't look like any paint work is needed. PDR would definitely be the way to go, if that is in fact an option.

If I was interested in trying to hide the damage after repair, I certainly would not have posted on here asking for advice on what to do.
Of course. Just wanted to put it out there for anyone and everyone to read. People get some pretty greasy ideas when money is involved
Like Brett said this could be well into the 20s and as these cars get harder to find people are much more accepting of cars with minor damage that’s been repaired properly as opposed to never finding the car they want in a low mileage, rare colour, never door dinged car that basically doesn’t exist.

Please do not use just any PDR service. Far too many drill holes into jams defeating the purpose of their trade. Specify no drilling and you may want to remove interior panels and such for them (you know the car better than they do). Find another business if they tell you drilling is required. The really good guys can be hard to find.

Great on the service records info. Nice work.

"To my knowledge" indicates that you do not know and have not thoroughly looked as well. If you can look, document and be certain or have a pro go look where the common spots are for a salt-use area E36, that would be better.

I see where the term "some flaws" was used. What are they? Just the impact damage? What else?

Until there are images that detail otherwise, yes, I'll keep smoking what I'm smoking and stand by my suggested dollar amounts. We've all seen the green example going right now in the FS section, right? It's pristine, documented extremely well with pics and is missing nothing with some pretty sweet upgrades and extras. It had an engine swap as the only curious thing ...but it's going for just 16K.

Maybe the color and interior combo is not what someone HAS to have but it does provide a reasonable current market example.

Often people think a coat of paint can exempt them from the necessity of honesty when selling things.
That car is very desirable and will have people banging down your door if it shows well.
While I agree fully, unfortunitely enough, this is not how the real world works.
Doesn’t mean I say it’s fine than, but if that was reality, we wouldn’t need locks on our doors etc.

Paint-less dent removal , they use suction cups, I think, so no drilling or bondo is th way to go. Fix the little dent and get all the money. Estoril blue will get you top dollar,too, as it is a very desirable hue for these cars.

Suction cups don’t work on BMW sheet metal. These aren’t Subaru’s.

Drilling is used (by hacks) to gain access to the backside of dents for the PDR process. PDR is primarirly done with angled rods to massage the metal out.

I have not gone over the entire car with a fine tooth comb to verify there is no rust, but I have not seen any while washing/waxing the car. I'll try to get it on a lift to get some pictures if I decide to sell. The previous owner claimed to have garaged it every winter which I have also done since I've owned it.

"Some flaws" are other common issues such as driver seat bolster wear, center armrest wear, faded M logo in the cluster , and sagging headliner which I'm planning on fixing over the winter.
