I had zero door dings in my 330 in the first seven years. Shipped it there, 20 months later, 3 dings. Then got rear ended twice. If your car is lowered, good luck with that! Ray will tell you the issues I had.

I picked up my lowered 330 from the VPC. During the inspection, I said the front bumper doesn't look right. The korean dude said its fine. I touch the bumper and it falls off! Fockers!

Then I had to get an emissions test with no cats. All I'll say is I passed.

Finally, they got me with the windshield. It had a crack in it that has been long repaired and never had an issue for 3 years. Its was on the pass side out of sight. Had to get a new windshield to the tune of $1300. Luckily insurance covered it. They gave me some BMW Korea special windshield that blocks UV rays. It also blocks GPS, cell, and radar. So my V1 never tracks radar forward and nav units are off a bit.

Yeah, Korea really screwed by car up. It was cool driving a really unique car in Korea...they don't get 3 series coupes.
