I found the RC to be tight also. I also can't get past the grill and the fake vertical slats behind the rear wheels. Once I started to read the reviews seem to generally say it's missing the upper...

I wouldn't debadge. If I saw it on the road, the first thing I would assume is that it's a lower model.

Honestly, you might be better off to take it to a local independent BMW shop and have them do a pre-purchase...

My e92 had the sunshade and I liked it. It's like $350, right? That's nothing. Just check the box and be done with it.

Not to come across as crass, but just have it checked out. A technician will have to look at it. The obvious answer is that it is low on coolant or a possible leak.

The only "worth" that matters is to you. The question as others have said is how long are you keeping it. I rarely keep cars past 4 years, so I would not do it. I'm not sure the service plan is...

Early 40's. US Military. Owned my 335 M sport at 40.
