hmmmm those are all nice cars. I am not too sure about the middle one that has 90K + miles on it. If it was garaged in the winter, being in MI i would assume that it would have less milage on it. course i garage mine regardless of winter. anyhoo, the other two seem like they would be good deals at under 20K. I would check the carfax reports and see if the owner has any documentation on the work done throughout the years. As for how much to offer them... I think the one that is 16,5 is prolly pretty close to what i would offer them. i paid 18K for my 98 with 57K on miles from the BMW dealer so that should give you somewhere to start. See if you can get more pics of the insides and see how it really looks uknow. good luck they are all nice looking rides.

I just found out that the first one doesn't have the heated vadars. If I am going to pay that much, I want all the options I can get.

The third one has a cold air intake and a shift kit. When I called the guy said that he had already had 10 calls. He might be lying, but I will go look at this weekend if it is still there.

The second one, I don't like the contour rims and the spoiler. I can live with the spoiler, but not those rims.

I will keep you guys updated.

This is funny as hell. I called the guy yesterday and he said that they had ten people call already and that the car was going to go fast. I just looked at the ad and the guy changed the price. It is $2000 more now. Which gives me the time to go and buy it. Here is a picture of the ad that I printed out before they uped it to $17980.

That aight kewl for him to jack the price up like that. not kewl at all. make sure you check that car out before buying. get paperwork and such, i know you will do your homework also might wanna see about taking it to a bimmer shop for a once over for any problems that the owner doesn't know about. course if he sells you a lemon we could all roll over there and pay a visit... LOL well good luck and keep us posted.

i like the third one

What is wrong with "which one should I buy threads"
I think they are great. I like giving my opinion and hearing others. Hell it is not like you explain to your girlfriend why you would get Vadars or a 3.2L compared to a 3.0L. But then maybe I shouldn't have posted it, because the third one was sold yesterday. ghead
