Need help please on E90 330xi
 
Hi, I saw 2006 330xi for sale with 61,000 miles on it. It have fully load and it look like brand new.

It have been wrecked and inurance total it. I know it will have salvage title but I will keep that bmw for long time. There is no airbag blow out. Only I see damage is hood, both head light, bumper (bumper in right place and not off the car), radaitor support, radaitor, and windsheild. I wonder what kind parts does this e90 330xi have on between on radaitor support to engine.

I would like see pics what parts I need to replace for bmw with parts number please?


I know this is ugly gammar but try be nice with me. Thank you

Pay a tow truck to round trip the car to a auto body shop they will give you an estimate. The will give you a print out of all the part numbers on it for parts needed. Then ask them how much it would be if you provided the parts to fix it.

IMO I would recommend passing on this car. Unless you're in the business to repair such a vehicle, and it sounds like you're not, it's my opinion you'll spend more trying to fix it than to buy one that doesn't need repair.

I have a friend who alway buy salvage title car they never scare of it. I cant find clean bmw that I can pay cash because my insurance cost me 240 a month with car payment. So that why I going pay cash so my insurnace will be 40.00 month.

If that could be done without viewing the vehicle, I'm guessing the insurance estimating profession would be a very different experience.

To test my theory, take your proposed ride to an estimator, or qualified mechanic, and ask if what you want can be done by asking a question in an Internet forum. After they recover from your hilarious proposition, you can ask to do it the Old Fashioned Way.

I look up blue book and near $21,000 for it.
They asking for $8,900 but I can make them go down. $5000 to $6000 would be nice?:thumbup:

Again I have to reiterate I think you should pass. To give you an idea:

Passenger headlight assembly: $1,096.95
Drivers headlight assembly: $1,096.95
Hood: $558.07
Bumper: $403.52
Radiator: $312.54 (not including what appears to be another couple hundred dollars additional hardware to mount it).
Radiator Fan: $621.50

You're already looking at $4,089.53 for sex parts and that excludes taxes, shipping, and labor to install. And that's just a few parts. As mentioned with the radiator there are going to be a lot of auxiliary parts. That $4,089.53 is bound to continue going up just for the parts alone. Factor in taxes, shipping, and labor and I don't really think this is a project you should undertake.

Yep, I just choose six (not sex as I originally wrote) parts to illustrate how expensive this effort can be.

Close enough to see outward damage....what's hidden's anyone's guess.

True parts cost unknown. Appears you have access - if so, detailed estimate from a pro will tell a tale. On dis-assembly new issues may be uncovered.

With what we've seen, I'd stay away. Unless of course you can do the work.

Ok, What if I find a clean title bmw with bad engine. Should I get it? I have done replaced engine on 98 jetta 2.0l, 2000 jetta vr6, 2005 jetta 2.5, and 2003 passat 1.8t. So I can do it on bmw.

The answer is: It depends. It depends on how much you'd pay for the car, how much a replacement engine would cost, etc.

IMO unless you do something like this for a living it's almost always better to buy a completely functional car that does not require significant repair. It almost always costs more to repair than to just buy a working vehicle.

That BMW asking for 6,990 for it? It have fully load with navigation. It have 139,000 with one owner. It 2006 325xi with manual transmission.

I see a number of them for ~$15K with considerably less miles (68K - 81K) and ready to drive.

Again: Unless you're in the business of repairing these cars it's my opinion it tends to be less expensive to buy one in running condition then to repair one to running condition.
