Original FS thread:


Car got rear ended while parked.

My situation is bad, and it is not cost effective to repair my car's body after its accident. On the very bright side, it's still mechanically great and 100% drivable... with no frame/ rear subframe damage. I have the rear left trailing arm and exhaust removed.

It was an excellent car before the crash, and I had flown all the way to Oklahoma to buy it. It was a southern car the entire time before the crash- and the underside is as good as you'd expect a southern car to be.

In regards to the body- it needs a left mirror, a rear bumper (found one for $50), and a quarter panel repaired/replaced. The rear floor was unscathed, and the rear doors open perfectly, so no damage there. It looks ugly, but the car is perfectly drivable as-is. The coilover suspension has been replaced with OE sport shocks/springs.

  • 2001 BMW 330i
  • 111xxx miles
  • 5-speed
  • orient-blue on gray with burled walnut trim
  • xenon lights
  • Dual heated/power seats
  • Winter/premium package
  • Harmon Kardon audio
  • Power moonroof
  • clear side markers and turns

Maintenance (most I have receipts for):
  • New alternator
  • Front strut bearings
  • Front right steering knuckle assembly
  • Front control arms
  • Intake boots
  • valve cover gasket
  • plugs
  • vanos rebuild (pictures below)
  • rotors/pads
  • window regulators

I'm going to put up the price at $5900 or best offer, which is $3500 less than what the car was priced pre-accident. Any feedback will be appreciated.

Clean title.
