and no engine pics??

it's good to know though, that there is a body shop that will hire the handicapped because i think only a body man that is blind would let that thing go out of the shop with the 'custom exterior'...

looks like superalex let loose with a paintbomb on the interior and snagged some auto zone specials for floor mats, too. at least it wasn't wrinkle finish, or else it ould be a 'paintbomb(squad)'....


but that's a steal, yo...for 16k...

Isn't it? I saw that and thought about exactly that or just leaving it as is, one curious thing he doesn't list the mileage though.

I'd buy that M3 for 2k it's worth the gamble. given that is has less rust than my car does... i saw a little on the boot lid there.

Might be going to test drive this.. After reading about them for the past two hours, I'm guessing you'd have to be insane to buy one

lol apparently adding dinan exhaust, throttle body, and CAI to a 540 will "blow the lids" off M5s and M3s

My favorite part was his "creative attempt" to add tags...

"this is a bmw, 540, 540i, better than a 325i, not a 550 or 745il, or mercedes, slk, s class, e class. Not american like a camaro, chevy, ford, not diesel. Has an intake, but no supercharger. Great quality. like a subaru, "

^^ precisely!

It'd be cool to fix it up and keep it as a "drive this only 5-10 times a year" kinda car. In 20 years there will probably be 100 left..

This looks pretty baller..
