What do you guys think about this car?

The front end around the kidney grills and the bumper have rock chips and looks really awful. The door has a little ding as well.


Guys let me know what you think?

Good looking car, however the price they are asking for is ridiculous. 11,500 for a car that is at 125k miles is way to much. If it was a zhp then that price would be reasonable yet a little to much. I would ask for maintenance records, and from there base the price you want to ask for. Lastly, ask if he has done a cooling overhaul, if not, knock off $500-700 for that alone.

Thanks, I've negotiate the price below $10.500. The thing is; he has a strong hand as he's not in hurry to sell. So he's pretty set and won't lower it further.

It's one of the few manual transmission around ...

This is a replacement to my 330CI that I've totaled a week ago. Didn't have Navigation in mine and I'm liking the Nav ... it changes the interior look drastically.

It's not factory navigation.....you can put an aftermarket navigation in anything.
Figure out want the heck you want and wait for it.

I know what you mean, when I was in the market for a new car, I could not find a 330i m/t anywhere. Low and behold, my neighbor who is a few houses down parked his 330i out one day with a for sale sign and I jumped on it. Just keep searching, you will find one

New clutch is a positive.. alot would depend on how much stuff's been replaced.. at that mileage alot of stuff is going to potentially go soon if it hasn't been replaced already:

radiator/water pump
alternator
cooling fan
random suspension pieces
etc

Alot of people look at the asking price but having a car in beautiful exterior shape and meticulously maintained is well worth the extra asking price.
P.S. This car doesn't look to have a rear folddown seat, which is a deal-killer for me personally.
