Seems "fine" otherwise??

Am I missing something? Nothing is said as to how it has been maintained. It looks like a good car for a fair price given the mileage and totally unknown service history.

I'd venture to guess this wasn't an above-and-beyond owner, since the lenses and front grill are bad. Things like that can be symbolic of how much money was spent on a car (maintenance wise).

That said I'd consider the car if I was looking!

Mystic Blue is gorgeous if you know how to maintain paint. That said 99.9% of car owners don't. See sig.

BTW, yes.. it says in the ad. maintained at dealer and by a bmw indy. haha. yeah no details.. but its better than most ads that say "WELL MAINTAINED CAR WASHED AND OIL CHANGED WITH SYNTHETIC"

These guys would LOVE this car:

I'll take it! I just traded my 04 325ci in for a suv for my wife. Recent accident and $1500 in upcoming maintenance plus a good amount they gave me, was a no brainer to trade it in.

Looks like it'd be a good buy!! That mileage is so high but it must have been well maintained.

My brother's (formerly mine) E36 325is has over 260k miles on it and runs like a top, our cars will run forever if you treat them right.

That said, somebody buy this thing!

Great price. Somebody take this. High miles don't mean squat after doing a complete...and I mean complete maintenance. This ZHP is so much better than mine...it's got a Nav. And it's the same color. It is Mystic Blue Metallic...better known as Toledo Blue.

That interior is pristine, except for the shifter. Getvin isn't working so I can't see what the accident was about.

Really?!?!?! I love the blue!

Maybe it's that whole "grass is always greener" thing, but I'd trade my white for a blue any day.

That was what I first thought when I got my ZHP. But after a few days...I got to like it.
