I saw it on Craigslist a while back. $23k for an 97 with 130,000km is steep.

I would buy it if it was like 11k

im sorry but i find it quite unbelivable for him to say the car has never seen rain - i could understand if he said snow, but i think that rain thing is bullshit

Haha... pretty gross, but to each his own.

When I first read the listing, I saw "$6000-Lime/gold candy paint,tan leather,....etc" and thought to myself, "yeah, I might pay 6000 for that car, but I'd have to get it resprayed".... and then realized the car wasn't 6000, the paint was.

certainly not my cup of tea, but it looks like he spent a lot of time and money on it and it's different...

not saying its the type of different i'd spend $23,000 on though

Besides the Home Depot mesh and maybe the rims, I don't mind it at all.

If he threw some 20x10 and 20x12's on it you'd all be praising the mad Euro show car.

I'll have to agree with Jay.
The car has potential. Some black for contrast, a few other little tidbits, and this thing will be HOT>

i dont know why you guys think its that bad, in my opinion all i would get rid of are those rims! im not a fan of chrome rims on bimmers, i think the colour is very original, and very well done! and besides whats the fun in having a car that looks just like the next guys?
