but for those who are too lazy to follow that link, here are the pics:
She's asking $4,987.
There are a couple scratches and rock chips that are to be expected on a 10 year old car. the interior is in good shape. The leather is old but no cracks or tears. there are some scratches on the leather.
The only 2 things that concern me is 1) there's a tiny spot of rust on a door. It's about 1/4 of a dime in size. and 2) the check engine light is on and they haven't gotten it checked out. They said the check engine light goes on and off.
It's dirty, but with a detail she could look a few years younger...
If I offer her $4,500 do you think that's a fair price?

i would thinki so, but tell her you want to take it to a mechanic for a pre-purchase inspection. the rust is a point of concern, mileage isn't too bad, sounds reasonable for the national average per year...other than that she looks clean and straight, interior seems well kept. $4.5k sounds reasonable.
R.I.P fast 6
Two wheels or Four, I'm happy as long as the throttle is pinned.
That is the traction control (ASC+T) light. Is it always on? That is not good. I think it should be off when you start the car . In any case, the green ASC+T button should toggle the light. If the indicator is on, that meas that traction control is disabled. The light will come on intermittently whenever traction control engages during driving.
Good question Teh Prof......yammahamma find out when the trans was last serviced, they are due @ about 90 k & the traction control light will stay on when the traction control button is depressed off......just press it down once & see if it goes off....car running.....Car looks nice though....
It's the wheel itself which is making the noise...I think it just needs a little grease. You think it's the fluid tho?
So those codes could mean a new secondary air pump and valve...from bavauto that'll run about $380.
My real question is, does anyone know if this model comes with seat warmers? I thought every Bimmer did. I've forgotten to check both times i've driven it...any thoughts?
I am pretty sure they were optional......
Heated Front Seats*
Heated front seats are optional in all 3 Series models except the 318ti, all 5 Series models, and the 740i/iL. In the 750iL and 8 Series, they are standard.
The 3- and 8 Series heated seats have two stages of heating and a timer. To preclude their being left on inadvertently, the timer automatically reduces heat from stage 2 to stage 1 after 4.5 minutes, and switches it off after 36 minutes.
The 5- and 7 Series heated seats have continuously variable heating, and the 750iL has heated front and rear seats as standard equipment.
