I would never come up with a name like elusive to begin with if Im in the sales/service industry.

Default Buyer beware/scam - ElusiveFX (Tab Khan)

What kind of a thread is this. Why is Elusivefx being a scam after you winning the deal. If you have concerns you should have paid 100 bucks and get a ppi.

Sorry but I really become pissed with buyers who are asking really unintended questions to sellers. If you are really concerned with the vehicle you should have seen it with your own eyes without bidding on it..if you are concerned with subframe do a ppi or search one with reinforced...at the end this is almost 10+ years old cars...if you are so concerned get a brand new m3

I think it even has some dinan software on it if I recall correctly!
Yes that was me. The car has a Stage 1 Dinan software tune as well as competition brake package and 19" wheels. The wheels were a big selling point for me as they were exactly what I wanted and brand new.

This right here. Sounds like the OP wasn't willing to fork over money for a PPI and instead wanted to get a free report from someone else. The seller wouldn't have that report and even if they did why would you ever trust a PPI report from the seller? Always get your own inspection done so you know it's up to date and not altered.

If you are too cheap to get a PPI on a 12+ year old luxury sports car than you probably shouldn't be buying one in the first place.

Default Buyer beware/scam - ElusiveFX (Tab Khan)

Any real buyer will pay for their own PPI if they are serious. People who are not serious want all the information and then blame others when they dont do their research.

Ive sold several BMWa on this forum and other places and any serious or of state buyer asks for a PPI and pays the shop.

As a courtesy for the buyer, I provide my location and 10 specialized BMW shops that understand these cars.

I have never asked any of the shops for the results and only had one buyer haggle with me over a power steering line and we split the repair cost.

I always recommend any serious buyer to fly and look at the vehicle on person.

I had a PPI done on my first LSB at a BMW dealership and when it came off the truck, I could see pavement through the trunk peeling back the carpet.

Always lay eyes on the car and get your own independent PPI.

From the posts Im seeing on Facebook M3 group these days people are still in denial over sub-frame, rod bearings and vanos lockdowns to say the least.

Didn't quite catch the op did not want to pay for a ppi. That is universally accepted as the buyers responsibility. Either way, I thought elusivefx was a cool name. If it was just elusive, or elusive sales that would be a different story.

2 years ago I came across a jet black/imola red slick top e46 m3 on ebay that Tab was selling. I reached out to him so I could take a look at the car and Tab was more than happy to work around my schedule. After seeing the car the first time, I was more than impressed. I had a friend of mine who knows e46s well come with the next day to look at the car with me and Tab accommodated our schedule. He even showed us a few of the other cars that he had. We made a deal and I picked up the car a few days later. The entire time Tab was more than willing to help me out with any documentation I needed for the bank and always replied to any call/message. Even after I bought the car he was willing to answer any questions I had about performance parts and maintenance, and he even suggested a few shops in the area that he uses. If I ever find myself in a situation where I have to buy another e46 m3, I would not hesitate to contact Tab.

That has nothing to do with the claim that the seller lied in this case. Some people are pretty careless with their accusations - but can't back them up.

Re: the other thread - I posted in it and my observations then stand as made.
