I've been looking around online and locally for a used 3 series, when this M3 caught my eye, because it was in the price range I'm looking at. http://www.autotrader.com/fyc/vdp.jsp?car_...1981&cardist=11
The seller is out of town until this sunday (the 20th of March) so I havent received a phone call back yet.
I ran a Carfax and got this: http://www.carfax.com/cfm/FSBO.cfm?r...FX000008663509
Salvage Title Issued by New Jersey DMV
Carfax also tells me that "AZ, FL, GA, IL, MN, NJ, NM, NY, OK and OR issue Salvage Titles to identify severely damaged and/or stolen vehicles. Not all stolen vehicles are total losses; many can be recovered with minor or no damage. "
So, my hopes are that it was simply stolen an recovered (with some damage probably).
So it comes down to should I buy it or not (and If so, ask for less than about fair market value which is what the price is now)
As long as its nothing major, I'd be willing to work on this car and if it needs it work some bugs out too. I'm just worried about things that make it an M3 like frame damage etc.
Any help or opinions would be greatly appreciated
