Buy?
 
Hey guys I found a local e46 that seems pretty good by the pictures but the bumper seems off in the first picture.. Is it a bad facelift job or is there possibly something worse?

To me the problems look like

1) it has an auto tranny with 137,500 miles
2) the bumper, Hood and what looks like the passenger front corner panel (the color is off) looks like its been replaced due to most likley and accident....

SOOO yeah prob a no go for most people on this forum

The color is way off, and the hood isn't aligned properly, it's also missing the cover where the fog light should be. Just run away from it now.

Also its never a good sign when a craiglist ad for a BMW is only one line long.....

I'm just sayin.

Thats an incomplete facelift job. That is the non facelift hood with facelift lights. It shows that the owner does not pay attention to details and spends his money wrong on the car. I can almost gaurantee you this car has every single maintenance problem. I wouldn't even bother test driving this car.

The bumper doesnt suit the lights. Looks a bit iffy if you ask me.

Isn't the bumper from a pre-facelift car?
And it is missing both fog lights.

Patience will reward you with much better for that kind of money.

Pre facelift hood bumper
Facelift lights and rear bumper

Bad facelift job and could be worse. I would pass. Good luck on your search.

E RaK 11-27-2012 03:09 PM

I would stay away, that car looks like all sorts of trouble. There are better deals available.

yonmoor 11-27-2012 03:20 PM

These guys don't know what they're talking about buy it ASAP!

lovemy330ci 11-27-2012 03:27 PM

dont do it, check engine light on in pic too

lcoleman 11-27-2012 03:33 PM

That's not a facelift job, it's a botched post-accident repair with the incorrect parts. Look at the bumper fitment, jeez.

this. quarter panel color is completely off. hood doesn't fit those lights at all. it's a wreck.

i would maybe pay $2000 for that car. probably not though.
the only reason i'd pay that much would be to part it out.

bad car! go to the bottom of the grand canyon!

awesomechinz 11-27-2012 03:59 PM

Mango get all the enthusiasts together then everyone can push the car off the cliff together... Protesting those losers

Andy2108 11-27-2012 04:29 PM

stay away, unless you want a project.

Nerdy46 11-27-2012 04:36 PM

Problems waiting to happen. Looks like a cheapo repair and flip job.
