Need advice!! 2008 328i coupe

hi everyone. I'm new to the forum. recently I'm looking at an used 2008 328i coupe, I think it's base model, 6sp manual, no sunroof, no power seats, only option I can see it's the dual climate control. But I think 6sp manual and the 3.0 engine is a perfect match for me.

ok, I need some advice and suggestion from you, this car has 39000km on clock, but on the carproof said there're two accident, one is on the left side , it's $9000 estimate repair, and one on the left rear side, it's $1000 estimate repair. and this car is also reported at auto auction two months after the repair. The listing for this car is $24900, it's sold by an local dealership, they also have an inspection report said everything is ok for this car.

Sorry for the long post, so what do you think about this car? Should I buy it? what's the price should I pay? I'm thinking $22000, is this a good price?

Thanks!

Don't touch it....these cars are all rear end! Stay far far away and try not to get emotional about it...you will find another one!

If the frame isn't straight you will never be able to align it correctly.

IMHO spend the extra few thousand and get something clean and accident free! Or buy something slightly older and cleaner....

Don't waste your money on this......
