Paint

* The paint on the car has no indication that it would be anything other than the original paint. It all is very smooth, shiny, and appears to match all the way around the car.

* We do not see any kind of paint imperfections as far as workmanship, which again makes us believe it certainly could all be original. The paint has a very similar finish on every panel, with no changes in the amount of smoothness in any areas.

* On the front of the hood there are a couple of larger chips, and a couple of smaller chips that certainly could be easily touched-up. There is a light scuff on the front bumper in two small areas, as well as a few pin head size nicks in the bumper and below the bumper on the front panel(see pics).

* In looking down the sides of the car it might have a couple of small nicks, but I am not finding any on either side. This is certainly an indication of the care this car has had.

* The back of the car, including the trunk appears to be free of nicks with the exception of a few light scratches on the bumper, mostly near the exhaust outlets and a little scuff on the right rear corner(see pics).

* Other than what I have described the paint and finish on the car has survived beautifully with little wear at all. Owner has had car for 10 year and has only put 12,000 miles on it.

Body-

* The body is straight, and all the fits and gaps look appropriate as you would expect from the factory. We have not been able to find even one slight dimple in the body of this car. Again it has seen limited exposure, and we do not see anything that looks any different from the day it was built as far as the body is concerned.

Magnetic Gauge-

* In going around the car doing a couple random tests on each panel, we are finding that on the sides of the car, the paint is all in approx 6-8 mils range without any significant fluctuation up or down indicating no additional paint build up.

* The trunk area is typical with a little heavier in the 10 mils range and the hood is of a non- steel material so we are not able to measure it.

Bright Work-

* The bright work pretty much only extends to the side grills with the M3 logo, front hood opening, front and rear BMW logos, rear M3 logo and tailpipes. With all we don’t see pitting or scratching and it all looks like that of a new car, or that of a car a year old.

* We see absolutely no damage to any of the bright work at all.

Glass-

* The side and rear glass all carry the SEKURIT BMW logo except the windshield which has BMW and Pilkington.

* The glass all appears to be flawless, clear, without any discoloring, bull-eyes, cracks, or wipers marks.

* Though we cant see any nicks in the daylight, at night with on coming lights you could possibly find a few pin head size nicks that may show up, but looking closely we can not find any.

Tires and Wheels-

* Continental Extreme Contact Sport Plus

* We do not see any signs of cracking or deterioration on the outside of these tires.

* The tires themselves do not show any damage from the curb.

* The wheels themselves have a really nice finish that is not showing any cracking or peeling of any kind, and is nice and shiny with good reflection and no deteriorating. However we will note whats typical for these lower profile tires there is a slight amount of curb rash on the wheels themselves(see pics).

* Left Front- 225-45-18 10/32 Tread Remaining
* Left Rear- 255-40-18 9/32 Tread Remaining
* Right Front – 225-45-18 10/32 Tread Remaining
* Right Rear- 255-40-18 9/32 Tread Remaining

Top-

* Car has a convertible top only.

* The top is a power/ fully automatic top, and we have no reason to believe it is anything other than the original.

* It has good deep rich black coloring, the color is very even all over, and we don’t detect any noticeable fade.

* We have detailed close up pictures of all the stitching that is on the water channel, and continuing around the outside of the top. It is all in place as it needs to be, and really shows no signs of wear or needs of update.

* We did operate the top up and down several times, and all of the headliner appears to go right back in place just like it is suppose to at the same time, and all the components work smoothly.

Interior-

* It does not look as though anything on the interior has been replaced with any non factory materials or items, with the only exception being it could have replacement floor mats.

* It all looks like original equipment the way it was build new with factory items.

* The headliner shows no wear or any signs of needed repair, and all has good color. We do not see any staining or spotting to the headliner.

* The sun visors all seem to operating properly and in good solid condition.

* The leather is in extremely nice condition with good coloring, and again obvious very little use.

* You will notice a touch of wear on the drivers bolster, which is kind of typical. There also maybe a couple of scuffs, one on the arm rest and one on the seat. You will also see some scratches right around the ash tray, parking brake, and cup holder area(See pics).

* There is some light scuffing on the seat backs, and a little wear on the door panel from normal use(see pics).

* We did not see any damage to the carpet, dash, or any of the gauges, and over all looks like they have seen little wear.

* The rear view mirror does have an issue. The mirror is usable, it is just that half the mirror is tinted, and the other half is not(See pics).

Trunk-

* It shows very minimal use and if you look closely at the gray material, and the darker plastic panels you see the presence of hardly any use of the trunk.

* You will notice in the lower section the tools are in place, and the under trunk tools though some are in place they are not all currently there.

Engine and Transmission-

* The car was just recently serviced, oil change and maintenance as well as brake fluid replacement.

* You will see in the photos a copy of the three services that have been performed by a local BMW specialist in our area.

Chassis-

* In looking under the car I do not see anything that appears to be altered or missing from what looks like the original build of the car, and you can see how nicely it is keep.

* If you look closely at the pictures of some of the stainless, and various chassis components you can see that car has not had much exposure to the elements during its life. The owner mentioned that they have not taken the car out, our used it in inclement weather.

* Though there might be a couple of light scuffs on the front which, are very common on the spoiler you will notice that there is no damage to the panel behind it. Nor do you see any damage to the floor pans or the underside coverings, or any of the other components that would indicate that it has hit something on the road or been bottomed out in some way.

* It is obvious that we don’t see any rust perforation, and nothing even starting. So your looking at it not re-cleaned or anything else, but just as it has been all its life.

* The transmission and engine do have a pan covering the bottom side, but there is no visual notice of any fluids that might be seeping out. The same is true for the rear differential, and the axles and boots all seem to look fine with maybe some light dampness out of the front of the rear or 3rd component.

Test Drive-

Chad drove the car several miles in the area, and the engine always started quickly, and seemed to run and operate just as it was designed. The clutch, as well as up shifting, and downshifting through all 6 speeds, and reverse all seemed to work smoothly and correctly. We where not able to drive at highway speeds, but everything seems to be operating properly. The steering was smooth, and quick. It appears that it is all operating as it was designed, and upon braking it was very quick and stopped without any noticeable pulsation or pulling to one side or the other. It appears that the car as far as driving, and the drive train is operating the way it was designed to.
