Yep, all caps is one of the cardinal sins of Craigslist posting. If your ad is in all caps, whatever you are selling is automatically total junk.

Hilarious. So what exactly is the asking price? Is it $1500, $1200, or anything more than $700? Talk about an inability to form a complete thought. And it's a sedan, yet the seller says it's a 318is (which didn't come in sedan configuration, to my knowledge).

It's hard to imagine people being so stupid, but the internet proves they exist on a daily basis.

It really isn't too bad. He started at 1500 and dropped it to 1200 without changing the price in the description. The junkyard offered 700 to scrap it. He doens't have a phone, but his parents or work probably does so he mentioned email is the fastest way. No excuse for calling it an 318is when it's a 4door. turnaway right there

I will say that anyone with a sense of knowledge would go and offer 750 for it

There's no point to buying a damaged OEM bumper for $100 that you will need to spend money repairing & repainting. Might as well just get a new DDM unit. Even with the shipping, the cost is probably quite similar when all is said & done.
