New project!

Just picked up a 2001 530i 5 speed from the auction! It needs some work but for 125000 miles, the interior is immaculate!



^this is the only damage. it got rear ended but it's a quick fix









love those updated taillights


1st thing on the to do list is to restore those damn foggy lenses

Nice pick up! What did you buy it for, if you don't mind me asking?

i think it was around 1700 but with the buyers fee it was around 2100. bought it because it was really clean. I'm having performance upgrades done to my M3 and people take so long to do it so I really don't want to be car-less. It just seemed like a really cool car that needs a little love to get it back into mint condition. Plus it's a 5 speed, if it was an auto I most likely would never have consider it. Who knows, I might have this car for awhile, but there's this 2002 M5 going off tomorrow and I may be more interested in that...

Nice, not a bad deal at all! We sold a 2000 328ci 5-speed with 140k for 4900. Only issue was subframe damage. Made me want to start looking harder, all these nice cars are starting to get CHEAP now!

haha yeah, 2 years ago I got my 2001 m3 convertible with 34,000 miles on it for $11,000. The only issue with it was the title. I couldn't drive it legally for 5 months because the paperwork was all screwed up. Buying from auctions could be risky for personal use but there's always a hidden gem in there. I'm all over this one only problem is that it has the same type of title my M3 had so I'm not sure if I want that dilemma.
