You'd be surprised. Plus, the front end has been disassembled already, that's why it looks like that.

Quite true. I just remember the accident I had at 25mph where I hit a light pole. Very much looked like that but I didn't realize he had already disassembled since it looks like some stuff is still hanging from the front end.

Eh, $950 for a four banger sedan with not so great cloth interior and a blown head gasket seams pretty steep to me, I see 325s and 323s with blown HGs for $500-$600 every once in a while.

Looks nice, can't quite tell if it has one piece headlights, or just a terrible picture.

Lol, he changed the front end to a non-color matched one because the old one was "dinged and dingy".

I don't understand why people think that adding BMW as a key word to their ads for Isuzu or Mustang parts will increase the chances of a sale. If I want parts for a Mustang I probably would have inclduded the word "Mustang" in my search. People are stupid.

I thinks it funny when people have 1000 keywords at the bottom of their post. type in honda and you'll prob get a billion results

Yeah, I pissed one of those guys off today by texting him and asking why he thought that some one searching for "BMW" would want his cobra Mustang headers, than I flagged his ad as spam.
