Hey Jimmy, you have genuine BMW service papers (matched with the VIN #) to back up the low km's right?

If you do and it shows up all clear on a PPSR check:
lots of cars show no kms. 'odometer not visible'
here is an example
http://www.pickles.com.au/damaged-sa...dan/1552153301

I think the auctioneers are too lazy to connect the battery and then press the button to show kms...
also I didn't think its as simple as throwing any cluster in? im sure kms are stored in memory in few other places too..?

agree with you. im hoping he s got the pics of the damage that he can show the potential buyer so they can see the extent of the damage.

that's normal man. im at ease with it, cos I saw the car in person so know exactly what needed doing to it. other people are of course going to be suspicious

Only a small percentage of people would actually notice or check those things.

Hardly any people know to check how the car was specced from factory.

GLWS Jimmy. Sad to see it going and good on you for dropping the price to 50k. It sounds like a good deal at ~45k even if you did pay considerably less.

Like you say, you took the gamble and it paid off. Haters gonna hate (probs because of your shaky start on these forums).

definitely part the mods out.
1. they won't justify any price increase on the car
2. you can make money selling them individually

Return it to stock mate. Speaking for myself if I was in the market: I would glance at your car (as it sits right now), see the type of mods, then instantly move on to the next car. Now if the car was stock, white, manual, low KMs. That's a tasty little morsel that I would follow up with.

Either way, cool car, good luck with the sale mate.

I only stated a price of 33-37 as you didn't state it wasn't on REVs and I assumed it was due to your circumstances and how you bought it. For year and mileage I would say $45-50k depending on the market. But here is some advice:

- ensure you have checked the vehicle over FULLY. Take it to a BMW dealership and pay the $300 and get them to do a full inspection with report so you can show buyers. This will check your mechanicals, eletrics and they can put your key in their reader which will show you everything about the car (KMs, year, VIN, specs, etc) basically anything that was on your dme. This is what a buyer will do, so it looks good if you get in and do it before they have to.

- return it to stock - your black painted wheels, grills, etc will turn buyers off.

- try if possible to get your dad to sell it - a young 18 year old selling an M3 - first impression is the car would have been trashed due to age. Maybe some won't agree with me, but just my opinion.

- make sure if buyers question the cars history you are honest with them, your car has been well documented on here for it's issues and wouldn't take much to track down if a buyer really wanted to. Also be prepared to knock off some $$$ if the history comes out in the open.

Anyway just my opinions.

Goodluck with the sale, Jimmy.

As others have mentioned, revert it back to a stock, clean looking car and it will be more appealing.
