Alpina B7 = $13K, worth it?

Given it's fairly extensive damage, but for $13k you can't really go wrong can you? haha

Garage List
1990 BMW 325is  [5.00]
It looks (from the picture's vantage point) like the entire rear end is gone. Likely will cost to repair more than the 13.9k price tag.

Going to cost over 15k to rebuild easily, you can buy it and scrap it out for pieces but if you plan to build to resell I don't recommend it.

Someone will buy it, re-build it, advertise it on autotrader, and eventually some dumb ass will post up on a forum asking the community what they think about buying a car with a Salvage Title.

I drove the previous gen and remember them telling me the 21" rims were $4,200 each to replace. So if it has the undamaged Alpina 20-spoke 21" rims, it's almost worth it at retail, because even a guy who has that car will want the rim from you rather than get it from the dealer. But you know even on the used market one can be had in the 40's as they have zero resale.

I agree.. it could be rolling on different stock though.

The image in that picture is entirely worthless, you cannot see any area of damage????

I'd buy it to part it out. But something looks off with the rear axle so the running gear could be all out of whack which would reduce the amount to sell by a significant portion.

On another note, that really does not look like a B7, even the front bumper's missing a lip.

Why do people take pictures of damaged cars that highlight the only part thats not damaged for a sales ad? That's so stupid.

I like how there is only one picture, from the front. Probably a good deal for someone in the collision industry though.

It's a regular 7 not an Alpina but either way for 13K, you are getting a lot in parts.

definitely worth it for parts. doesn't look like a real B7 though, but even as a 2011 750i that is a very good price. engine+trans pays for the car.

and the most important part of a car as a parts car is still in tact.. the front end! everyone wants the front, bumpers, headlights, rebar, rad, rad support, wheel well liners, etc...
