New to Bimmer by accident...literally!

I just purchased an E46, 2002 325i. I was just looking for an everyday driver since I sold my Duramax truck. I also have a 99 Z28, that I didn't want to wear out driving everyday. I was craigslist searching pretty much whatever came up at 7k or less. I found the 325i. The guy had an accident right after he posted it. I went and looked at it, and deemed it repairable. I'll be getting the rpair part this weekend, and have it painted and installed within 2 weeks. So far I love it. My wife keeps saying," I thought it was for ME!"

Oh yeah...it's a 5 speed. I'll try to post pics....here goes.......





Here is the damage. Fender is $100 in Smyrna Ga. The guy that does my paint is gonna do that and install for $150.00. That is what having a tire mount machine and balancer gets you!!!



Nothing internal bent. Just fender.

Well done, great find! Welcome to the world of the Ultimate Driving Machine (I know that BMW doesn't use that any more, but we all know it still rings true!)

All great things are simple, and many can be expressed in single words: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.

That is a great find, and having a skilled trade that you can barter with is a HUGE advantage in life.

Enjoy the beautiful car!
