He wouldn't take any lower and since there really aren't many I went for it. TLC is more of a thorough cleaning and detailing/polish. Not too much work really.
No worries as long as you got the car you wanted. Iím jealous of the LSB and the hard top, like I said itís a real head turner especially with the hard top on and no b pillars. Great to hear that itís sorted aside from a good detail. I hope you enjoy your vert as much as I have enjoyed mine. I highly recommend autocross or some track time if you find a track that allows verts, driving at the limit is awesome with these cars, vert or coupe.

Cheers!

Other Comments (amount of time in the market, successful negotiating tactics, words of advice, pictures, etc.):

I messaged about 10 minutes after it hit the market. Placed a holding deposit that day as I was interstate, New South Wales.
I really could not negotiate any further on the asking price after having it inspected, REVS checks (like car fax but in Aus), PPI - was only a couple minor issues like a tie rod needing replacing. It had the CSL rims and boot, low mileage, subframe reinforced, rear brace, SMG (everyone wants a manual but I wanted SMG as I've had my fair share of manuals) the next best priced was a coupe for 26,000 and more than double the mileage on it.
Came with coilovers, upgraded pads and discs, new smg pump, sunroof and carbon interior pieces. I really could find very little to fault the car. No panels were damaged, repair or had signs otherwise of an accident. It drove fantastic from a cold start to warm up. I drove it for a while and drove it hard and it pulled without hesitation. No funny noises, leaks etc.

Are you the Buyer or Seller?: Seller
Model Year: 2003.5
Mileage: 65,000
Coupe or Convertible?: Coupe
Exterior Color: Jet Black
Interior Color: Cinnamon
Manual or SMG?: Manual
Major Options: Premium package (xenon headlights)
Under Warranty? (if yes, please indicate type and remaining coverage): No
Overall Condition (Excellent, Good, Fair, Poor): Mechanically excellent, cosmetically good. Needs nothing mechanically, but there were definitely scratches and paint issues that keep it from looking perfect cosmetically. Would require some investment in respraying bumpers and paint correction to get it top notch.
Any unusual items that affected value?: VANOS locked down, recently upgraded to ECS Tuning 2-piece brakes/Hawk HPS pads, recent valve adjustment, 19" Apex PS-7 wheels, Dinan parts (intake, exhaust, suspension)
With Whom Did You Complete the Sale? (Private, BMW Dealership, Other Dealership, Auction): Private
How Did You Find Seller/Buyer?: Craigslist

Sale Location (City, State): Washington DC area, Northern Virginia
Sale Date (Month, Year): 6-22-2018
Seller Asking Price: $24,000 for car with 3 sets of wheels (19" Apex PS-7s, stock 18s, 17" E36 M Contour wheels with Pirelli Sottozero winter tires)
Final Sales Price (amount seller received): $23,000 (purchased only with 19" wheels, I'll keep and sell the other sets)
Est. Published Value, if known (KBB, Edmunds TMV, NADA, etc.): Who knows?
Other Comments (amount of time in the market, successful negotiating tactics, words of advice, pictures, etc.): Technically on the market for about two months, but I wasn't really serious about selling it until a few weeks ago. Showed it in person to 4 people I think, two of whom made offers somewhat lower than the ultimate sales price. Had a few decent leads here from M3Forum members, but ultimately Craigslist seemed to produce more in the way of serious buyers who were local and able to look at it and make an offer.

Other Comments (amount of time in the market, successful negotiating tactics, words of advice, pictures, etc.):

This car is obviously not a particularly desirable color outside and definitely undesirable on the inside (ugh, gray...), but the vehicle was in remarkable shape and had fantastic service records and previous enthusiast owners. The inside looks brand new which is phenomenal for gray and the outside has less than 3 imperfections. I traveled to purchase this car and had been looking for a long, long time for a car that fit my desires. This car represented a good value to me given all the "better" cars were selling for $5-10k more and shitty cars were selling for $2k less near me. The car did not have the oil pump disk, subframe reinforcement, or the rod bearings done, but I pretty much knew I was going to be doing those myself regardless of the vehicle I purchased at this pricepoint. I will be changing some interior parts to black and the car will be excellent.
