How many people have actaully bought cars off ebay? Is it safe? but yerah i say if you want to buy a car without driving it do it! i mean worst comes to worse you might have a few repairs to do when you get it... 6900 is cheap for a 325!

TOTALLY WITH FURIOUS!!!!
buying a car sight unseen + aftermarket mods= giant turd box

I would be very careful!! BMW makes great cars, but unless they had records to prove upkeep and could email you most, i would not buy a car i haven't looked at.
My brother bought a car off ebay....Told the guy he would do the "Buy it Now" price wire the $500.00 bucks and when he got there, if he didn't approve he would get $250 and leave $250 for the guy's time. It worked out well and he bought the car.

Post the link to the car, let us check it out with you

i say get it.... that looks good....and if he screws you, ebay protects you from that happening, and takes action for anyone that gets ripped... Most likely he won't screw you and the car looks like it is nice..

6900 isn't that cheap for a 325 with over 100k miles. I'm with furious on modified cars, i like to do it myself. Plus you have no idea on the quality of work on the new transmission.

it is obvious you want it pretty bad. you work at a body shop so you got hookups on that end.

Records are good. if you like the mods. If you like the car. If you can swing it and want to just go for it already.

worst case you have to spend more to fix it than you thought. but it is a BMW so once its fixed its fixed pretty good.
