Looking at some cars - your comments please!

Just gonna plop some posts now and again. Feel free to provide any colour commentary! Price too low, too good to be true, too high, stay away...anything you wanna add.

odd that the car was kept with a battery tender during the winter months, yet the battery was replaced.

I am far from an E46 expert, but others may chime in..

Price looks awfully low for that year and model and the time of year ( spring, convertibles should sell for top dollar now ), I would almost say a wholesaler would pay more on a trade, just my opinion.

How bad is this rot? This is from a car (vert) I'm looking to buy. Not looking for a garage queen, but this stuff worries me. How bad is it? How long before there are big issues?

It depends, a butcher can do it for $150 but to do it right you have to use some welding, you are looking $500>

That seems like an odd place to me for rust... maybe previous accident repair or something?

2001 vert. Original owner claims no accidents. It's on both sides in the exact same spot, so I don't think they're from an accident.

Maybe it's water drainage from the underside of the doors? Check if someone drilled holes there lol

This spot was 100% repainted, and then rusted. Accident or not. Very bad place for "cancer"...no matter how much $$$ you spend fixing it, wil always come back in a few years. I would not tuch this car.

Thanks for the comments guys. I've passed on the car that had that crazy door sill rust. The few bodyshops I visited said that it was not repaired, but no one could explain why the rust was there. Quite a difficult place to do repair work too... saved my ass...thank you.

Here's one that apparently was involved in a "minor" frontal. Like $16K in repairs - but I wonder whether that's inflated insurance pricing (like the time I wanted to repaint my bumper for two license plate screw indentations and they wanted to charge the insurance company $3K for a brand new bumper). Yeah, I know, I am a bad car magnet...
