Lol. Agreed. Looks like the owner agrees too, it's been like 2 months since it wasn't yet finished and it's now done and for sale.

If I'm not mistaken, that car has made an appearance on our humble forum recently: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=1124548

I'd agree that the bodykit is not my favorite. I'd also have some concern about a conversion of this level that has very few miles on it - if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, I'm always concerned there's issues that are too time consuming or expensive to resolve, so the owner elected to make it someone else's problem instead.

I have a feeling you could buy a clean-bodied, high-mile touring and a totaled M3 and pay a shop to swap everything from the M onto the touring - and you'd still come out way ahead on the purchase price of this, someone else's potentially unfinished project with a unique bodykit

I hope the seller finds a buyer who's willing to pay a fair price, and I hope the buyer gets it thoroughly inspected.

One too many zeroes ahead of the decimal place.

Looks like a lot of time and attention were paid to a lot of areas. Chassis reinforcement, suspension, the body kit, and the M swap. OTH, all that attention, but it only has a 5 speed in it, has non-sport seats, has that horrible rear bumper (or lack there of), and the ridiculous "stance" that wouldn't make it good for any type of performance driving event. I also imagine those aluminum bushings in the rear make it pretty awful to drive from an NVH standpoint. Like was said above, just because you can...Also proves that you won't get out of it what you have into it. And what's with the B.S. about a prototype built by BMW at the beginning of the ad? Certainly isn't that car, if one ever existed.

What m swap? The bumper?

No pics of any mequipment. No m cluster. Stock 5 speed. Probably doesn't have the m rear subframe either.
If I had an s54 under the hood, there would be a picture of it.

This is a very valid point. All exterior and interior, no under hood. So many disconnected dots. To quote the above, "if it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck..."

If it has all that's listed, plenty of money has gone into building it. Does nothing for me though. He'll be luck to get even half of what he has in it back. Never 32K.

I'd much rather see things like this. http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=1120893

Well I found a ZHP I want to buy, so I am selling it for real. I'll take $8300 (thats what I am in it)if I can get it sold in the next couple days. Of course we'll write $1500 on the sales price for DMV.

Not to mention that, to my knowledge, there is any such thing as a 2000 325i. They came in 2001.

Yes.









Also, youd think after several months of trying to sell it, he'd figure out no one wants a Mazda interior.

Edit: it isn't, sorry, I did aa and 5 digits, it is a1 and 5 digits.
