Holy.

That looks like a combination of oil and coolant. You need to make them pay. That's messed up.

It's illegal to sell a car that doesn't pass SMOG, and you can't register it.

Take the car back, politely threaten to file a claim with BBB, get your money back, buy something AFTER consulting with a mechanic and getting a FULL P.P.I.
It will save you headache, time, and money.
Trust me.

Also, don't just jump on the first E46 you see.
Take your time.

Exactly. All the cars I have sold have had to been smogged.

My E30 wouldn't pass smog, luckily, I had a buyer who was patient enough to wait for us to diagnose the problem and fix it (a gutted catalytic converter).

+1 on getting the BBB involved if they're reluctant to take action.

If they fail to comply with your demand, go for it and file it.
