Best of both Worlds, Hardtop & Convertible, Solid, Sporty, Low Mileage, Fun to Drive.

Owner bought car a couple years ago as a fun car for special days. However with busy family schedules, kids, etc. they don’t get to enjoy as much as hoped.

DETAILS OF CAR:

* Power Seats
* Leather Seating
* Disc Player
* Heated Seats
* Paddle Shift
* Lumber Adjustment
* Adjustable Steering Wheel
* Power Steering

* Plus More, See Pictures

Paint-

* The paint seems to match well all the way around, and has very little wear showing.

* We do not notice any scratches to the body of the car, and all the paint is very smooth and shiny.

* Most of the body is nick free, with the exception of one larger nick on the roof panel, and a few tiny nicks to the paint on the deck and side mirrors.

* The panels below the headlights in the front(aka bumper), and hood do have a fair amount of nicks from road debris (See pics, typical of a lower front car).

* In bright light the car is slightly lighter in color(blue), however we had to take all the pictures in a complete overcast. The bright light brings out more of the metallic in the blue paint.

* Front edge of the hood does have a clear application on it to protect it.

Body-

* The body is all very nice, and straight, and correct without any dents or creases that we could detect.

* The gaps and fits around the doors, hood, and trunk all look very even and correct.

* Car Fax indicated right side and rear minor damage report.

Magnetic Gauge-

* In taking a couple of readings on each panel it would appear that the paint and materials on all steel panels are in the 7-10 mils range, and fairly consistence with the quarters and trunk being 1 or 2 mils higher.

* The front fenders are of a non-steel material so we could not gauge them.

Bright Work-

* The bright work that is surrounding the top and side windows is more of a brushed finish, and the emblems and grill are more of a chrome finish.

* They all seem to be secured properly, and we do not notice any damage. They show very little wear with most noticeable being the front grill does have some light road nicks from typical driving. (See Pics)

Glass-

* All side glass, rear glass, and windshield have the BMW logo.

* All the glass is very nice and clear without discoloring, bull-eyes, cracks, wiper marks, scratches, or delamination.

* The windshield does have some light pin head size nicks, with a slightly larger nick about 10 inches up from the bottom, and about 10 inches in from the left side. (See Pics)

Interior-

* In looking closely at the interior we do not see anything that looks different from factory direct components, and all appears to be stock.

* The leather seating all feels fairly supple, and the sun-visors all look good and solid. The headliner is tight, and appears to be proper.

* The seats, door panels, carpet, and switches show minimal amount of wear for a car this age.

* There appears to be a light amount of wear showing on the outside of the seats and bolsters. (See Pics)

* It looks as if there has been some damage and or repair to the rear center console. The wood area looks fine but the tan colored area looks as thought there was some repair, and it may have worn off a bit.

* The center storage area rear does not open easily, and could use some minor color repair.

Trunk-

* The trunk shows very minimal wear.

* There is a pull down space limiter so you know how much you can pack if you decide to put the top down.

* Everything looks very neat, with maybe just a few spots on the carpet that could be cleaned.

Tires and Wheels-

* Nexen 5000 Plus tires

* We do not see any damage to the tires or the wheels that would indicate hard curb damage.

* All the wheels have nice color. (See Pics)

* The BMW logo in the middle of the wheels do show some wear, and on various wheels a few scuffs here and there.

* Left Front- 225-40-18 9/32 Tread Remaining
* Left Rear- 255-35-18 6/32 Tread Remaining
* Right Front- 225-40-18 9/32 Tread Remaining
* Right Rear- 225-35-18 6/32 Tread Remaining

Engine and Transmission-

* Looking under the hood it all looks neat, and clean. It all appears like factory designed, and we do not see anything that appears to be missing, added, or altered from how it would have been manufactured.

* Car Fax shows some maintenance records.

Chassis-

* All the shielding and the exhaust appear to be pretty much in correct order, with some wearing of the front shield where it protects the engine underneath.

* Some light surface rust which is typical from normal use.

* There is some light oil dripping from the access panel, which was removed for inspection and light seeping from the oil pan. (See Pics) The transmission, and rear end seems to be dry without issues.

* The rubber shields on 3 out of the 4 shocks are no longer held well in position. The right rear shock does have some light fluids starting to seep.

Mechanical-

* The power roof works from a single switch and was operated and cycled down and cycled back up on a couple of occasions, and top, trunk, and windows all seem to work properly as part of that operation. Very simple way to have a convertible in just a few seconds.

* Headlights work in low beam
* High beams works
* Front parking lights work
* Switch that powers all windows at the same time works
* Individual switches for all 4 windows work
* Emergency brake sets correct and does hold
* Paddle shift works
* Wipers work
* Blinkers work front and back, left and right sides(including side markers)
* Power mirrors both left and right side work in all directions
* Both driver and passenger seat work in all 4 positions and also the power recliner on both sides
* Radio works
* Hood release works
* Air condition works and cools
* Temp. works on both sides
* 4 way flashers work
* 4 dash vents all operate
* Left cup holder works, right side seems sticking a little but works
* Fan speeds work
* Horn works
* Steering wheel volume works
* One remote works(has 2 with keys)

Test Drive-

Chad had an opportunity to drive the car about 30 miles, both around town and on the expressway. The engine seemed to start, run smoothly, and respond just as it was designed to. In driving the car down the road the transmission seemed to up shift, and down shift just as it needed to. The car steers very straight and very precise, and did not pull to the left or right. The vehicle feels very solid, and moved down the road smoothly.
