Do you have an iPhone? Take your picture in portrait mode. It will help blur the background and focus on the car all while taking even better shots than just the standard "Photo"

I know alot of people on here are probably going to get upset or be shocked at making an eBay motors purchase without looking over the car. But that's what I did.

I got a walk around video of the car and a bunch of photos taken for me. I felt confident enough to make the purchase. Here is the youtube link of the car I watched atleast 10 times before making an offer.

Tell me what you all think.
I think next time you should pay a mechanic to look over the car. There's more to it than just a pretty video.

But yeah, it looks and drives like it's brand new. a few people at work I've shown the car to or rode with me think it's a new car. It's got the new car smell and the interior is in nearly in perfect condition other than maybe a center arm rest and steering wheel needs cleaning.

Does anyone recommend any products to clean the interior of their cars over others?


Edit: grammar errors

Images are here.

So I posted an update but it for some reason deleted itself out as I was editing my post with HQ Images.







I showed my M to a few co-workers and they think the car is new and are surprised when I tell them it's a 13. She smells like a new car and drives like a new car. The only things I've noticed other than some chips on the hood is the steering wheel and center counsel needs to be clean up. I haven't purchased and leather cleaner or interior cleaner and wanted to ask everyone here if you recommend anything over others?

Cheers

I second this, stick with OEM CF, no fitment issues what so ever...I went eBay route in and to be honest, looks was okay...however, after 1 year,,,due to weather conditions, rain...sun..etc... it faded a little, Now I have OEM CF parts on my car for last 2 years...looks good as new and fitment is perfect. Welcome to the M club and Goodluck with your Mods.
