Someone should buy this M3

This is a ridiculous deal...it has a water/flood damage title but if it checks out this is such an amazing deal. You could probably drive this thing for 3 years and put 50,000 miles on it and still sell it for $30,000.

Not sure I want to fly up to Illinois just to check it out, but for anyone in the area, might be worth a look.

No. The warranty will be void upon getting the DCS/Key Scan/First RO cut.

No, they're worse. This car is worth maybe a third of a non-salvage one. People are crazy.

If it is indeed fresh water damage and it checks out fine after an inspection - test drive i would not hesitate to buy it, very nice car indeed.

Yeah I questioned the warranty as well, didn't think it would retain it with a flood damage title but wasn't sure. I didn't know if water damage = a salvage title.

As far as engine/electronic work, I didn't think about that. I just thought the car was in fine working order. It does say it runs and drives great. And if it does indeed have its maintenance and warranty through BMW like the ad states, it seems to be a good deal.

This car has taken a huge depreciation hit. The title has contributed to ~80% of the depreciation loss to this point, so really with more miles and years it won't continue to decline near as much. I think if someone was in the area it would at least be worth checking out.

Lulz. The problem is that water damage is the gift that can keep giving: you think you have everything sorted out, and suddenly new problems arise months or even years after the flood event.

That doesn't sound good. There is another good deal in Houston, kinda high miles though.
