Pics kinda make this thing look like a Tesla, but hardly so in person.
Sounds great too.@GreenFrog
I would want to make sure that the car copes well with those E92 ZCP wheels as they may rub on the front. Idk, worth considering.
I was worried about that when I saw the car. The fronts are very very close to the tire well. I asked if they rub and for the most part they don't. They do rub slightly apparently when you're doing a tight, full turn, according to the mechanic I took it to, but nothing alarming or needing addressing. My E60 M5s rubbed under the same circumstances too.
In any case, the car passed the PPI with flying colors. Only thing needing addressing: AC is not blowing fully cold, so it needs a freon top up -- roughly $40 for that -- and then the rear differential seal is ever-so-slightly leaking fluid, so the mechanic said we should wipe it down and see if it continues to leak over the next 6 months. Nothing major, but if we wanted to, we could replace the seal and fluid for $240.
Seller and I went back and forth and we landed at $17.5k, my target price, so I'm pleased.
Will be picking the car up on Friday!
