Nice deal. Even if it is an auto.
Is it a Craigslist rule to NEVER put a photo of the driver's seat but include one of every other seat in your BMW ad?

Not directly. But most people don't picture imperfections. And 90% of e36 driver's seats are torn.

I have those BBS wheels if you're looking to trade your LTWs. Obviously I could put cash on top.

Oh you're completely right, but it isn't like I'm not going to see that when I get there. I just think they should be honest about something that you can't hide anyway. Keep me from wasting my time and fuel and their time as well.

Just like that 330 I posted. I asked what's wrong with the interior they just said that the car can be seen at where ever and that the headliner needs work.

I don't see what's so hard about taking pictures buyers will see it one way or another

Refresh my memory of these?? What's the rubber like?

The LTWs are reps though.

They're bbs style 42 is beautiful condition. One of them is a rep, but you wouldn't notice it while they're on the car. No rubber. I posted pics last week in this thread or OT or Show Off.

I'll go and look for those.

What are thinking for the LTWs. Unless the reps are a turn off.

If they're in very good condition, then I feel it would be an even trade before tires.

Are they staggered? And are they heavier than the already heavy "lightweights"?

Hmmm, not sure if 7.5 is gonna be enough for the 245s I want in the back.

Also, keep in mind that the bbs's are et20. So the biggest tire you can run without hacking the fenders is probably 225. Probably not as much of an issue to you. More of a problem to me because of my car's ride height and power.

Probably neither... I don't know why you guys are freaking out. It's about the right price for an M3 with close to 200k mi.
