2003 530i - 97512km - $5500 cert & e-test

First off this is a rebuilt title (thus the price). I can't find any evidence of any issues with car as a result of a low speed impact that cracked front bumper and blew seatbelt pretensioner (no airbags deployed); at least that is the story I was told from previous owner. There is a minor paint flaw in one front fender that you wouldn't notice unless pointed out so obviously the fender was involved. Other than that everything lines up and can't tell.

The hood release cable is sticky and the hood locks should be replaced to remedy this. Because of this, after I changed oil I left hood open but down. My daughter took car for a drive and the hood flew up at low speed and broke the hood shocks at the plastic connectors and dented the hood. Zero damage to windshield nor roof of car (which I doubt even made contact). It has a brand new hood, shocks and black grills still in box (I didn't want to install them and possibly break them in case I wanted to paint hood). The hood came flat black. The front emblem is off but peeling anyway (I have new grommets). Greasy handprints in pics.

There is a small spider crack in back right bumper and a loonie size dent below back right tail light.

Other than that it's mostly all good.

Beautiful car with very minimal rust; only a few minor areas starting to appear.
Has all the M door sills, steering wheel, spoiler etc.
No issues with interior except some salt on drivers carpet; needs a good steam cleaning. The rear seats fold down and has ski bag. Rear window and rear side window shades. Black sport seats (with the extendable part at front). Stock CD in dash, couple pixels in radio missing, CD changer in trunk, and aux cord in glove box. Drivers window is a little slow (I bought it with a broken door track, replaced and might need a tweak to get it to run faster).

I replaced all fluids. Transmission filter and fluid, rear diff, etc.

Pre-safety showed early signs of left side wheel bearings, a control arm and tie rod, which have been replaced and an alignment was done. No leaks.

A/C blows cold. No issues with any electronics. I bought new belts, fan blade and fan clutch, just because, but haven't put on (or need to but they are here).

I'm selling this and my M5 to replace with a pickup as I'm moving down a dirt road. Otherwise this was to be my winter car and my daughters drive it when home from university.

Has 5 summers with lots of tread on M rims and 4 winters (used 1 season) without rims.

$5500 certified and e-test. Ready to go. Add $500 if you want hood painted silver or there has to be someone on here to do it cheaper.

Also have full spare exhaust if wanted.

Let me give interior a good cleaning before pics but inside is literally a 9/10.

I'm in Gananoque which is half way between Kingston and Brockville.

hood locks received but need to install. Here's some dirty pics of interior. You can see there is hardly any wear on drivers seat.
