Is this a scam? 26k 2008 M3

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:
USD 26,500.00
Item Interest
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...t_12726wt_1167

I know its rebuilt, but $26,500??

Does anyone know about this car? Or this seller by any chance? Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,
Drake Kemper

I love how the seller says "WHEN I PURCHASED IT HAD SOME COSMETIC DAMAGE, TITLE IS REBUILT BECAUSE OF IT"..lol

They don't salvage title cars for "some cosmetic damage"...stay away///

The more I look at it the more I'm wondering if its really an M3 and not a conversion.. the rear body doesnt seem wide like an e90 M3 should be and the muffler tips are sticking out waay too much

Geez..talk about a butchered car.

Spend the 8-10k more for piece of mind.. There are a few on there for 35k, clean titles, normal colors.. U can't finance most salvage cars, and resale is a huge risk. I think if it was rebuilt to factory specs then maybe, but looks like a huge headache to me

Not worth the risk. Guessing from the fact that non M parts were used to rebuild it, the rebuild was completely lackluster and down on quality

I had a few salvage vehicle in the past. Not bad at all if you know where and how the vehicle was hit. Salvage vehicle are not covered under warranty. I remember when i had my 2002 745i I had to pay for all the repairs myself.

3. salvage title.
4. 2008 model...
