Hello there,

I am glad to hear that you are interested to buy my 2006 325xi BMW . Although I am registered in Canada, I`ve recently moved to Portugal (where my family is from) and the car is being shipped from here.
I bought this car from Canada but when i tried to register it here in Portugal they said that i can't register it because it's a Canadian vehicle and we have to do serious engine modifications in order to comply with the EU emission standards. As I said before, it is a Canadian model (which complies with the Canadian emission standards) and Europe regulations are different, also the fees to register it here in Portugal would be around 5800 euros.I want to sell it in Canada because the car is still registered there.The price is low because here in Portugal nobody wants to buy it and so instead of keeping it in garage I decided to sell it to someone back in Canada.As no one will buy a car from overseas instead of local one only if the price is really attractive.
The car comes with clear title, it is free of loan and liens.You will get from me the keys and all documents to register the car on your name.If the car is not how i described it, i will offer a full refund. It will be insured during transportation and will be delivered at your address in maximum 15 days. Final price is CAD $ 12,000 (the price includes shipping and insurance fees).
I want to inform you that the transaction will be supervised by eBay and both you and me are 100% covered during this transaction.

Let me know if you need any further details about my 2006 325xi BMW with 28,000 kilometers.

Thank you!

I had the same thing last week for a 67 Impala. The lady said she was in new york and wanted to go through some shipping company that doesn't exist.

I really feel bad for the people that actually fall victim to these, but i guess it's buyer beware!

It's crazy when you consider these scumbags probably spend as much time infront a computer as those of us with legit jobs.

Portugal is way ahead of Bosnia. I seen some huge Brabus beznos that have no issues with Emissions. I wonder what will he say if we tell him that we have someone in Portugal to test drive it. hehehehe I bet it's gonna be bail out time.

I've done that with 2 guys, one from St.Lake and one from NYC, told him my buddy is a trucker and I want him to test drive it, and if he likes it he'll put it in his truck and bring it home.. Never heard back again...
