They are pretty rare, but still. Nevertheless, that Z3 2.8 looks pretty worn and dirty. I'd expect to have to replace pretty much everything on it.

Not sure how I feel about the flares. At first I thought they looked nice, but then I thought: "Yo dawg, I heard you like fender flares, so we put flares on your flares!"

One thing to consider: The asking price for an M3 will go up in the spring. Besides, you've got an Audi with Red Rally Flaps & AWD.

Their pricing may look steady, but I bet their willingness to be flexible while negotiating the bottom line on a summer car in the spring diminishes considerably.

Must have been one hell of a crash. Dealer wants it gone, I'm sure. And if you finance, they charge 2150! Hah.

Six previous owners, repo'd, mileage discrepancy, and an Ohio car with unknown service history... Yikes.
