Other Comments (amount of time in the market, successful negotiating tactics, words of advice, pictures, etc.): I message seller two weeks prior but wasn't sure at that moment. Continued to search and found another car about 100 miles north and checked it out. That car had a few issues that were concerning plus it the seller wanted more, so I passed on that car. Call the original guy and met him 2 hours later and the car was in excellent condition. No negotiating needed. Drove the car about 600 miles home and and it ran like a charm.

How Did You Find Seller/Buyer?:http://www.m3forum.net/m3forum/showthread.php?t=582800
Sale Location (City, State): Calabasas, CA
Sale Date (Month, Year): 05/17
Seller Asking Price: $20.5K
Final Sales Price (amount seller received): $20.5K
Est. Published Value, if known: not known
Other Comments: Car needed some love such as;
-Surface scratches all over (paint correction performed by www.thecarconnoisseur.com)
-The right kidney grill was being held together with duct tape. (replaced)
-Front center grill broken (replaced)
-Rear tires were 285 and could not accelerate without rubbing. (Purchased 265s)
-Front/Rear tires also mismatched brands (purchased PS4S for all corners)
-Front spacers too big and tires rub during hard cornering (new lugs to remove spacer)
-A-Pillar upholstery sagging, steering wheel alcantera worn, cup holder worn (ordered or replaced)
-Car is too slow and HKS suspension seen better days (replaced with new KW V3)
-Strut brace broken (new ordered)

Overall the car was in pretty good shape. I would have beaten seller down in price had I known off all the issues. I purchased car sight unseen (had friend in area give quick glance) and didn't ask about those issues, so it's my fault as much as sellers. I am happy with the car and can't wait to have all the little issues addressed. It is exactly what I wanted spec wise aside from wishing it didn't have NAV or sunroof.

Final Sales Price (amount seller received): $14,350
Est. Published Value, if known (KBB, Edmunds TMV, NADA, etc.): I don't know
Other Comments (amount of time in the market, successful negotiating tactics, words of advice, pictures, etc.):

Advice: "Subframe reinforced" (even with TMS plates!) does NOT mean it is completely FIXED!!!
I have (minor) additional cracking near the left subframe mount point that was discovered during the PPI. I'm going to take it to a place here locally that I trust to have them fully address any further issues.

Advice: Please choose your welder based on their quality of work and reputation, not solely based on their price!
Whoever did this subframe reinforcement didn't seem to give a F&%k about the sound dampening material, plastic clips, trim pieces, etc., or general cleanliness and tidiness of appearance of the interior afterward.

Advice: "AC could use a charge" means that the AC doesn't work... at all. *sigh*

Advice: "I am an automotive enthusiast" means that the person likes cars, but doesn't necessarily mean they know how to properly maintain them.

Other Comments (amount of time in the market, successful negotiating tactics, words of advice, pictures, etc.): Auction ended, high bidder didn't take the car, I called and talked with seller, a definite car guy like me. Only negative I don't have much in the way of records. With 48K I decided to go for it. Car is absolutely perfect inside and out. Never even been driven in the rain. Going to BMW next week to get a print out of all work done previously, and get quotes on doing a level 2 service on it. Still would have rather had a manual. I'll keep looking as I imagine my investment is safe.
