Worse. He actually invested in the M3 steering wheel. Since it's a 2000, that means he had to buy the airbag too. We're looking at ~$1K for all of that.

Damn! And the 1999-2000 sport wheel is actually very attractive.

There's a lot of useless hype in that ad (monitors itself on engine startup?), but few outright distortions as far as I can tell. The wheels are 328Ci SP wheels, not M3 wheels, but the ad doesn't claim that the car has the SP. And I thought 193 hp was the rated output for '00 328s; am I wrong?

Edit: I didn't see anything about tire monitors, but I don't think PDC was an option on 2000s, and that car doesn't have the sensors in the rear bumper even if it were.

Does anybody know if Ti Ag has white shock towers..? Looks like the car could have been repainted judging by that engine pic. Odd combo of extras to put with a non SP. Of couse anybody but us would probably jump at this... :angel:

Yeah thats the bad part, so what can anybody do. I think that it is probably mostly an accurate portrayal. I think anyone who would put that steering wheel in would probably be able to add the other stuff. I would imagine he change rims. .shrug, I wouldnt buy it, enough flags there for me to walk away, but nothing I could point and say hey look hes lying.

Could just be light playing tricks, BMW only clearcoats and POLISHES the outside facing paint. The paint on the shock towers are single coat, dull finishes. I doubt someone would go through THAT trouble to repaint his car from white to silver.

What area code is 954? Is that Canadien? I know Canuck models has different sports packages, but I don't recall there being a Canuck sports package that doesn't come with the sports seats.

Indeed... I remember noticing over there at Chez HACK how scottN2retro's TiAg M Roadster's shock towers looked white, even in person.

Might be the light but it sure looks white to me too.

It claims to have Xenon lights, but the pictures show that it does not.

Mine kind of looks like that too, I think it is normal for the lighting. Keep in mind the shock towers do not have the same finish as the outside of the car, they are more dull.

Maybe it's Jimmy's Xenon.

954 is FL, most likely Fort Lauderdale as it says in the ad.

this appears to be some private dealer or curbsider..you get what you pay for.

They are a dull white. Definitely not TiAg.
