Looks like a pretty clean car and super low on the miles.... That seems like a fair price if it all checks out.

Looks like it has been in a right fender accident, the front bumper is misaligned and missing the black ruber strip and the wheel arch plastic gaurd behind the right wheel, the ABS trifecta light is on and the pickles are gone on the dash.

Yup, definitely an accident car. The front bumper has a different shade than the hood. Also, the driver seat looks like crap for a 40k miles car? This thing had a rough life!

The ass-clowns that fixed the car did a ****ty job. BMW did not use screws on the fender liners, they use expansion rivets.

It's more like a 2k car to me.

Well, for the asking price of $ 450, I'd buy it... if it were not for the long drive across the continent. Though they will have to fix the cup holder; I cannot drive that long without coffee...!!!
