good luck on the sale!!! btw, get ready for many people to have different opinions on your car!!!

Everyone is entitled to their opinions, good or bad. I'm trying to sell a car, I'm not asking for my BMW to be rated. I still love the car, but I've moved on to something else.

Looks pretty good. Good luck with the sale. Some interior pics might help, and explination of what would need to be done if bought as is.

Thanks - and that's a good point...

Here's what the car needs to the best of my knowledge:

1) The shifter bushings need to be replaced. I have all of the parts, they just need to be installed. 2 hours labor.

2) The ECU is giving out an error. This is NOT causing any problems and has been like this since 2003. I was quoted approx $500 to replace with a used unit.

I believe those are the only problems that need to be addressed.

With regards to the interior, unfortunately I do not have any pics but I can tell you that the interior is in near mint condition. The car has never been smoked in or eaten in.. not even any beverages are allowed in my car. I would say the interior condition is 9.5 out of 10.

I like the car! To those who dont like the flashy esthetic stuff, part out those tails/lights/lip/spoiler, make at least a grand or so in doing that, and you got yourself a mint, clean, white 328 for like 8K
