Anybody know this car in Detroit?

Hey guys. A friend of mine is interested in this car. Just wondering if the owner might be a part of the forum or if anyone on here knows anything about the car in general. Would like to pass on some good advice to my pal.

The car looks pretty legit to me. What you guys think? Any info comments or insight would be appreciated. Im new to the e90s. Been in the e30 game for a few years.

Didn't know they still had people living in Detroit. Car looks pretty good but it's still a 328 with 114k miles. Asking price should be 10k but personally I would never buy a used car with more then 30k miles on it.

I agree on the asking price. I think its too high. He's compensating for the price of the bumpers exhaust and wheels.

Not knocking the 328 because the N52 is a great motor but this guys main selling point is that the car looks like an M3, and anyone in the BMW community can tell the difference. Don't get me wrong car looks pretty good but it has too many miles and the price is too high.

Total poser car... I personally wouldn't trust a owner that does this sort of things to his/her car. But if you are into that kind of things, go for it...

High mileage, high price, and the worst part is that it is an auto (328i has those awful GM transmission instead of the ZF box found in 335i) AND it doesn't even have sport package (have those crappy non-sport seats). So...

it's not fully loaded. he got a ZSP steering wheel + airbag but left the stock front chickenskin seats.

hood fitment is shit. carbon fiber driver side and center trim but brushed aluminum center console...

there's a right and wrong way for an m3 replica and guess which one this is.

tell your buddy to save up and buy something with lower miles and stock.

or...buy it and get these seats: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1059205
