Either this or the atom.
Lotus? How tall are you Joe? Those things are teeny tiny. You might need a shoe horn to fit.

Don't give up, get him down on the price a little if you can it's still a good price but it sounds like it was inherited and they just want to dump it. nada.com will tell you the how much it's worth my guess $3500.

It's a fairly average price for the M3, though. $10k for an E36 M3 with 100k miles and broken A/C and cruise control isn't exactly a steal.

The BBS LM (assuming they're reps) are awesome. Not a bad price, too, since they look to be in great shape with good tires. The wheels in the first link are fugly, IMO.

Something shady about those, I dunno what.

Yeah I'm not too fond if them either. There always seems to be a hidden problem or something. I think the black M is a scam, but the white looks better. It has high miles but looks well maintained from the interior condition.

Seems pretty cheap, yet salvage title. What things to look for?
I wanted a 328i, is there anything significantly worse about the 325i?

Seems kind of a high price for salvage title and not in that great of shape exterior wise.

You mean other than the missing .3 liter? It's got less horsepower and less torque. But I don't know if you'd call that significantly worse.

But with that torque comes the price of obd2. If you live in an area that does 96+ emission testing, this is a big deal. As in, for me

I'm in California, they MUST do that more than any other state. Would it be hard to pass smog with a decently tuned 328i in CA?
