I'm trying to make sure this is a real car, and that it is what it is described to be.

Everything seems very low priced and there are ZERO reviews from google and Yelp and all other sources like that. I can make a few calls tomorrow and see if anyone has heard about it or knows anything about it.

Can't find a loaded M3 with less than 20,000 miles for anything close to that. They are all $54K+

The site's up, but I'm so suspicious I may have to skip this one. Thanks.

It is fake, I called a relative in Lawrence and he said he had never heard of it but he would call a few buddies he knew that lived nearby. They ended up just going to the posted address on the bottom of the dealerships website and its just a huge warehouse with a "For Lease" sign out front. Scam.

I had a strong feeling that it was a scam. I really appreciate it.
