FS 2002 330xi Tiag (PA)

Updated Price.

I'm selling my 02 330xi. It's silver with grey interior. It has premium and sport packages. It has a 5spd manual trans and 96k. Looking to get $5500.

Do I start with the good or the bad? Let's start with the bad.

I bought the car from a body shop in VT last November. The guy told me it was involved in an accident and after making most of the repairs the owner didn't want to pay the bill so after a while they worked out a deal and the car was sold by the body shop to me.

The body shop replaced the rad support hood and passenger fender.

I bought new xenon headlights, marker lights, and a used M Tech I bumper being that is what the car had originally. The windshield was cracked, so I had a new one put in (rain sensing windshields are expensive) I also put a new radiator, ac condenser, cooling fan, expansion tank, rad hoses, thermostat, tensioner pully, and belly pan. The body panels need to be aligned. I thought I might be able to do this, but I really don't know a thing about body work. I also just replaced the carrier bearing and guibo.

After fixing everything I went to take the car for a drive and got the torn guibo vibration so i pulled it out and replaced that and the carrier bearing. Went to drive the car and had the same effect. Sent the car to the dealership and was told the transfer case mount is broken and thats what's causing the vibration. Also the dsc light is on and they told me it was because of broken sway bar links up front. Also the horn doesn't work.

I put a lot of time and money into it and would love to see it completed, but I just don't have the time and resources to complete this project. Let me know if you have any questions. I took some photos last night and will get better ones up maybe this weekend.
