Selling my 1999 BMW Z3 M coupe. I will do my best to describe the car.
I purchased the car in Miami earlier in the year, Drove back to NY. I did some work to the car since i have had it, I will list it below. Recently in NY we had 12" of rain in 4 hours. Long story short, I drove the car into a puddle, The water got into the engine causing it to stall, I opened the door to push the car & Some water got inside the driver side of the car. A claim was filed with the insurance company & the car was a "Total Loss" due to the company setting the value rather low ($13k). I had the option to buy the car back from the company, Which i did. The TITLE to the vehicle was never "Branded", Due to the fact that the vehicle is over 10 years old. This is what I was told by the insurance Adjuster, Please do your own research prior to bidding. The title i have in my hand,is the same title i have had for the vehicle since i registered it in NY, Which is a clean NYS Transferrable title.\
Ok, About the car.
I was able to get the car running again, I drained the oil & refilled with fresh oil, Repeated the process 4 times until the oil was no longer contaminated with the water. This was a Fresh water flood, Not salt. There was water in 2 of the cylinders, Also in the crank case, The engine was not run with the water in it. The water did lock the engine & it would not start. The plugs were pulled, Engine cranked, Water dried, Some oil & WD 40 in the cylinders. The car does Run & Drive, It is running a code for the MASS Airflow Sensor, So you WILL NEED A MASS AIR for the vehicle, My guess is that it got wet. The clear coat on the hood is peeling in one big area, It is not pictured because it was caused by the rain, There was no sign of it prior to the storm as you can see in the pictures. The Trunk, Fenders & Doors Have OEM Vin Tags, The Hood has R DOT Vin tags (OEM BMW Replacement). The driver side of the carpet is CUT, I cut the carpet out so i could get the water out. The carpet in the M Coupe has about 2.5" of foam padding on the bottom, There is no drying it. THE CAR NEEDS A CARPET. The headliner in the car was done in Black Suede as well as the B & C Pillars. The glue that was used could not handle the 120+ Degree temperatures inside the car & did let got of the headliner itself, The pillars are fine. So the headliner does need to be fixed.
There are some dings on the body, You can see most of them in the pictures listed of the Photobucket account. Some scratches also, The car is 12 years old.
