Heres the car I think I am going to purchase.

I did a whole lot more searching after all of you said to be patient. And i ended up finding a 330ci on the forum here. Let me know what you think.

Its a Black on black 330Ci, 5 speed, 58,000 miles, two sets of rims and tires. (the ones on the car in the picture, and the ones that you see in the box still.) The only down fall (that i can live with) is no sunroof. Everything has been redone on it, bushings, control arms, spark plugs, brakes, ect, you name it its been done. The paint is done, these are the only pictures i have till the weekend though.
















Here are some new pictures. no hood emblum, no corner reflectors, hood is not latched. car is getting wet sanded and buffed to perfection. Just waiting on the bank now and then flying out there to drive it back.

the only accident it was in was some rear quarter damage that was fixed a while back. The paint on the front is all because of some rock chips and scratches that there was no way to get them out easily so they just re-painted the front clip like that. There is a lip on it too that got re painted.

The car is done, but these are the pictures i wanted sooner than later and i (being a guy, sorry girls) can imagine what it will look like when it is done, so body shop pictures don't bother me. Once i get it delivered ill put some more pictures up. Maybe if your all lucky ill get a pic from him to put up before its delivered.

Why does a car with 58k miles need new paint? Was it in an accident ?
It looks like the tread on the tires in the front is different from the ones in the rear.
What year and how much is it ?

As i said above, they are just taking all the rock chips out of the front, the perevious owner was not so nice i guess. the treads on the all weather tires are different on front and back. Its a 2001.

Price is staying secret for now, sorry guys.

the lip and front bumper were the only things that needed to be repainted but my buddy owns that shop so he did the whole nose and sideskirts and will wet sand and buff the whole car. It a good deal thats way below book for this guy
