Est. Published Value, if known (KBB, Edmunds TMV, NADA, etc.): $ ?
Other Comments (amount of time in the market, successful negotiating tactics, words of advice, pictures, etc.): Looked ~ 6 mo at multiple sites, drove 2, and really liked the SMG as we own other BMW's with MT and kind of wanted something unique. The car appeared very good from descriptions and photos, an apparent good service history on carfax and original CA car 90% of it's miles. Seller was eager to sell and dropped price. Agreed on price and had PPI at BMW dealer in Houston (seemed very phony as they did not test drive, and yet gave the car a "beautiful car" grade then took my money, PS: this is the 2nd time I've had a dealer do a PPI and both seemed to be worthless). Yet after flying to Texas for look and final deal the seller showed car to be better than I would have expected and exactly as he claimed...only flaw one tiny 1/8" chip up front, and very small unraveling of stitching on driver side bolster (fixed it with shoe glue). After deal cut found out it only had 1 key, cost $250.00 for a spare! Had fun driving back from Texas. All in all super happy with car for 11 months, though had to replace the differential, vibration noticed and our good BMW repair shop drove showed it to be the diff, likely a bearing and said very unusual as they've not seen this before.. Bought a 3 clutch pack unit from Diffsonline ~$3,100.00 and $600.00 to install. Still very happy with car!! Very fun car to drive, tho I baby all our cars, yet this one as our '01 MRoadster really wants to get it on.

+1. That's literally a steal! If I were your friend, I would stop being your friend until you gave me an additional $5K

Other Comments (amount of time in the market, successful negotiating tactics, words of advice, pictures, etc.): Full service history (across 4 owners) after getting warranty service history from dealership. Leather in good condition. All original suspension parts. Minor scratches on exterior. Break-in service wasn't performed until 7911 miles *cringe*, but all subsequent oil changes were ~5000 miles or less and compression test performed in PPI was good (all six cylinders matched dead on) and it drives great. No VANOS refresh or subframe reinforcement, but no signs of degradation in either, yet. Those will be the first things done.

Other Comments (amount of time in the market, successful negotiating tactics, words of advice, pictures, etc.): This was a NY car for most of its life so their is some surface rust on the underside from likely occasional winter use. Also has some rust below the rear trunk area, rear fenders were pulled terribly in the back and have some rust forming/chipped paint. Front fenders have chipped paint. (This car was super stanced out) Drivers side was obviously re-painted, front hood and bumper are not original. The engine was swapped in from an SMG car due to failure of the original before I got it.

This car was clearly neglected over the years, but was under the same ownership for 8 years before I acquired it. I got a good price based on a mutual friend and the fact that the PO made a terrible attempt at rolling the fenders and wanted the car gone. Still not sure what I am going to do with the car but at this point it has the ability to be a fun daily during the summer months. Sometimes I wish I bought a cleaner example from the start but this cheap example allows me to maintain my e30 needs as well.

Thought I would post this up there for others to read, these cars do pop up every once in awhile for cheap. I honestly was on the look out for a few years, was in a few e36M's before this e46. I was scheduled to view this car within hours of being active on Craigslist FYI.
