Scam alert! E46 M3 cabrio

I hate when people get taken advantage of, so here it goes:
Anyone in the market for an E46 cabrio be careful what you buy, this 04 M3 6 speed was for sale here just weeks ago with 279K Km, and now is for sale at the auction with 117K!!!! Car is black on black.

One more example why a "low milage" car with no records with worth nothing!

Pfff...I've seen cars with most VIN #'s taken OFF being sold! I'm talking stickers taken off, strut tower shaved, etc!!! Sometimes the VIN does not match the car being sold!

Oh wow, that's crazy! I contacted the seller (both phone and e-mail) but he never got back to me.

Doesn't e46 has the temper dot thingy?

It's just like how all Ferrari 328 are all magically have 35000 miles on them.

Wouldn't previous mileage show up on a UVIP or carproof? Surely mileage had to be reported during emissions testing and sticker renewal?

Same year, model, transmission (rare 6spd), same aftermarket options, same missing parts, same licence plate frame...Dealer sale, and perfect timing, right after the original was sold.

Yes it does, but it can be done...
They can also "clone" the car...I've seen some lables and VIN's, they are pretty good!

OMVIC would be all over that. Sucks since we're shopping for same car right now. Might have to buy you a beer to see if there is a way to look for that.

The old school way was to check the pedals LOL, rubber pattern is usually rubbed off smooth over like 160K.
