Anyone in Houston want to test drive an M3 for me?

Im looking to buy an e92 M3 from a dealer in Houston, however it carries a salvaged title and was recently repaired. Would anyone who lives in or near the Houston area want to test it out for me and see if everything checks out? Cmon you get to drive an M3

Yep, something like this thread was posted before and the OP already had a member offer to test it out for him.

Just a heads-up: it is tougher to get a loan on a salvaged car. What was it salvaged for? Collision, flood, etc.??

i know im bumping this cause its old, but hey whatev.

i was selling that M3, and it had some boo-boo's in the front. i ended up selling the car for about 40K.

shoulda snagged it, cause the new owner is pumped he has a bad ass M3 now
if cars are FIXED RIGHT there are no issues.

i dont have any M3's are on the radar(yet ), but i have a 01 530 sport/premium/manual/silver/grey with 80K on it for sale for a bangin price

new struts (4), coolant system, headgasket, headlights and other goodies.

i need to get some pics on the site, but havent had time. im going out of town next week. will be up shortly though!

i stand behind any car i sell. i stand behind any work i do. i only use OEM BMW parts. using BMW OEM parts, they come with a 2year/unlimited warranty PARTS AND LABOR. i dont lie/cheat/steal when it comes to cars. i have been swindled on cars, and karma is a mo-fo. thus my business practice is the same, the truth is the only way to go!

Let me know if i can do any thing for you guys. service, repair, race or body work, i can do it all

It had a salvage title? 40k car with a salvage title is scary -- insurance wise.. but nonetheless a good car.
