I emailed the seller of the "2000 BMW" and asked when M-B started building BMWs. She apologized and said, yes, it's a Mercedes. I think she was kind of embarrassed.

Close, but no. Hammond's seats were black in the middle.

You have to read Bimmerbarbie's (Amber) "sunroof fml" thread, then you'll understand.

Sure is gorgeous.


Super cheap M-pars

http://rochester.craigslist.org/cto/3689560773.html

edit: what do you guys think about fitting them on my car? He'll take 350, which is dirt cheap assuming they're genuine. But they are et13, I believe. So I don't think I'd be able to make that work without it looking stupid. I have the tools at school to machine the rear face a bit... But that's pretty sketchy.

without a VIN or a picture of the engine we can only guess, Email the guy and ask for the first 3 and last 7 of the VIN, that should be enough to tell us whether or not it is.

And the car is pending a sale on friday. :bawl ing:

Well, on to another car: http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/m...691785106.html
Always wanted a Z3 to toy with. I prefer the coupe, but finding those for an affordable price is getting harder and harder. Plus I like ragtop cars.

Another ragtop (E30): in amazing condition for its age: http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/n...692097636.html
