My brother and I recently purchased a used 2002 BMW M3 with SMG at 24K miles and the works for 36.5.
Now, when we purchased the car...we noticed the rear bumper was not the same bumper as one that comes with PDC. Also, we noticed the car got side swiped on the left side, but the seller did a phenominal job repairing the body. Consequently, the xenons that originally came with it got replaced with HIDs BUT, it looks brand new! The interior and exterior look phenominal (I'll post pictures soon).
We got all the warranties where we are about to take it to a BMW repair shop to get a maintenance, and the 2 recalls (SMG hydraulics and engine rod-bearing) performed. When we drove the car, there were zippo problems, so we believe we got this one for a steal.
Now, the questions:
1) Is it worth repairing the rear bumper in getting PDC? I'm 99% sure that the wiring is already in place, so we just need to get the bumper replacement with the sensors. What's the repair cost here?
2) Is it worth getting xenons? What's the repair cost here?
Any help here is appreciated. We're also thinking of even doing these repairs if its profitable enough to turn around the car and sell it. We only drove it for 15 miles since the insurance still hasn't come in yet.
