Manual or SMG?: Manual

Major Options: Xenon headlights, Shadowline exterior trim
Under Warranty? (if yes, please indicate type and remaining coverage): No
Overall Condition (Excellent, Good, Fair, Poor): Mechanically excellent, cosmetically excellent. Some underside corrosion from living for a couple years in the NE.
Any unusual items that affected value?: Some underside corrosion from living for a couple years in the NE. IR / IR color combo not for everyone.

With Whom Did You Complete the Sale? (Private, BMW Dealership, Other Dealership, Auction): Private seller working through a Dealer who put it on BaT for a cut.
How Did You Find Seller/Buyer?: BaT

Sale Location (City, State): New Jersey (BaT Aucion)
Sale Date (Month, Year): 7-14-2018

Seller Asking Price: I think they originally listed for $31,000. Then tried to sell on eBay but reserve wasn't met.
Final Sales Price: $24,500 + 5% BaT Fee = all in at $25,725

Est. Published Value, if known (KBB, Edmunds TMV, NADA, etc.): more than I paid for it

Other Comments (amount of time in the market, successful negotiating tactics, words of advice, pictures, etc.): I was in the market for months, made several offers that were too low, but eventually persistence and patience paid off. I found a sub 50k mile E46 6-speed for <$26k!
Good buy.. I did a PPI on that car with morristown bmw..the seller disagreed with the BMW summary. Only to agree with some of there finding a week later and paid for the repairs... $25700 shipped to south Florida
.At this point I moved to another E46..Very Nice IR/IR E46 let us know how clean it is when your car arrives.

Interesting... it's pretty clear they had high aspirations of pulling in some EAG like numbers on this car (above $30k) but after months of trying finally just let it go. I'm 90% sure they dropped the BaT reserve at the last minutes of the auction just to get rid of it. I really didn't think it would sell at my bid as the timer ran out.

I don't suppose you would be willing to email me the PPI summary, would you? They included this receipt along with the auction. Did this cover all the findings?

** Edit: I'll quit mucking up this thread with the off topic and PM you **

Drove this car from FL>NE, about 1100 miles, this car never once did anything except run like a top! Car had two previous owners and was found to be in excellent condition, what a relief as I only had one way plane tickets from Nebraska to Florida. This is my first BMW, and first "nice" vehicle and boy I am loving it! I look forward to learning about this vehicle and being a part of this message board!

Right now, I'm ecstatic with the car I got. It looked like the seller mistakenly had advertised the car in the Atlanta Craigslist, when the car was located in Nashville. He also mistakenly labeled it an automatic in the ad. I got a PPI done at BMW of Nashville. I don't think they did a good job, because they failed to note that the horns didn't work. I bought it cheap knowing I would have to invest a little in maintenance.

Well, you certainly won’t be flipping it for a profit, Wheeler Dealer style. But if Humpty Dumpty was put back together at all, it seems you bought a whole lot of car for that money.
