Nothing more expensive than a cheap German car.

Spend $20K and get a clean used 335. Flood cars ain't worth dung.

I agree with the others here. I would buy a repaired wrecked vehicle but never a flood damaged vehicle. Just too much stuff gets ruined in a flood.

Floods cause all sorts of electric gremlins that aren't always initially apparent. You might be golden for 6 months, enjoying your great deal when your stereo goes out etc etc

In short, stay away.

Yeah i thought so as well... So im gonna browse around so far around me 08 70k miles for 22k i dont know but really i like the twin turbo as well if not a v8 its gonna be for daily driven. i seen the 1 series but does not look good as the 3 series looming for a coupe no convertable 2 door but so far 335i is the best fit?

Sounds like you know what you want. My personal advice is to also immediately budget for wholesale fluid changes, spark plug change at least soon if not immediately, I'd wonder about tire life, filters, etc. I recently learned how to DIY a lot of these things, outside of tool purchases, it was surprisingly cheap. But otherwise, start looking up reputable indys near you, take care of it immediately for the best chance of a long and happy ownership is what I say.
