Yeah right,

The suspension and wheels/tires could sell for that.


Oh, I guess I should part it out, because it does not look perfect like yours.

Another freaken douchebag comment.

Thanks!
Picture 1 - Missing hood emblem (accident replacement?)
Picture 2 - Caked in oil/filth
Picture 3 - Missing rear door skin, missing C pillar, wiring/light isn't at least organized or tied up, dirty/stained rear seats, tears in passenger side rear seat, what looks like a crak int he driver side seat release trim, leather looks dry.
Picture 4 - Dried/cracked passenger seat, missing door panels, missing glove box trim, missing glove box door, missing parking brake handle, non-original shift knob, possible rust in the upper left hand corner of the door sill, door sill missing rubber trim on ends, rear passenger window trim dry rotted.
Picture 5 - Driver seat in worse condition than passenger side (as expected), door seal dry rotted and tearing, rear driver side lower window trim dry rotted, rust around door sill, door sill rubber ends missing, rust inside door hinge rubber boot, aftermarket steering wheel.
Picture 6 - Faded rear deck (as expected).
Picture 7 - Hard to tell form picture but looks like driver side trim is missing (I see white dots), aftermarket muffler/catback.
Picture 8 - Paint on fender trim (white dot)?, aftermarket or sprayed side markers.
Description - Lots of parts replaced, lots of aftermarket as well.

I don't think that was a douchebag comment by Brett at all. Am I saying these are expensive or hard-to-fix items? Not at all. But to the common buyer or non-car/non-bmw guy these are all signs of danger or a salvage car. The more original or "clean" looking the car the easier it is to sell.

Honestly, tidy up the wiring or reinstall the missing panels, give it a good wash, vacuuming, leather conditioning and it will help a bit.

Good luck with sale.

Yeah it would.
When I see someone who can't even bother to clean their car before they sell it, I know they can't be bothered to maintain it properly. The car looks like a scrap heap, thats why people are offering you scrap heap money.
Don't ask for advice if you don't want it.
Clean the car up. Put the missing parts back on. Its not that complicated.

Your car and advertising is crap. If you cannot clean it and put the damn thing back together, expect offers that reflect how valuable it looks. I would not even pay $2k.

Different markets maybe but it has all outdoor panels in the same color, it HAS vaders, no huge dents, and runs with new shocks, and tires, PLUS its a stickshift. My market has almost all autos with dents, scrapes, bad engine problems, etc. Some people are cheap and picky. I bought my Cosmo M3 for 1500 with a blown headgasket so like i said some people are broke and think the M3s are cheap to own. My friend bought one for 3000 and it had no fans, no working headlights, cheap auto zone "bucket" seats, and a ghetto rigged push to start button and later blew the engine because the fans were missing. People need to just stop being picky and put some work into their cars instead of whining about the work you didnt put into it
Why are you trying to sell it anyways?

WOW - sorry I don't have the perfect m3 like you guys.


I don't know what to say about cleaning it up - pictures were taken right after I washed it...


Here are some updated pictures on CL, that have not made I to Panjo yet.

OH BOY I HOPE IT ADDS another $1000 to YOUR ESTIMATE: https://lexington.craigslist.org/cto/6009554197.html

God damn that thing just gets worse. Is there anything on it that isn't jacked up?

It doesn't take much for us to have nicer cars when you set the bar so low.

I DID just wash it before the pictures. DOOR PANELS needs some work....


HARDLY a $2000 m3.


Good luck with sale.
You are missing the more important things that were done. The mechanical aspect - suspension, steering, maintenance.... This car drives and handles OEM-very well.


I guess it is not a SHOW QUEEN perfect like yours.

That is the problem with folks who have been on forums forever and have high post counts, they think they can say whatever and just put down others who don't have the perfect car....

Thanks for all the help, you guys suck. Chase people away instantly instead of helping them OUT!!

I put a lot of time and effort and $$ into this car. Keeping as OEM stock as possible with quality German replacement parts.

This car must be worth more then mine HUH: https://cincinnati.craigslist.org/cto/6016885673.html

Oh wait, it is not pristine before selling!!!
