The combination of a radiator support snorkel, no airbox brackets on the left fender, no firewall (timing) notch, and a non-tii brake booster in the "before" photo suggest to me that it is not a factory '73 tii -- nosepiece replacements have been common over the last 40+ years but people rarely remove airbox brackets, fill firewall notches, and install non-tii boosters in tii's (although this car appears to have received a tii booster when it received the dual sidedrafts).

Regards,

Steve

Yes it's the same car. Serial numbers match. The owner sold this car to me. He said he was selling it because he was moving back to England. I sent him a deposit and scheduled a PPI. It never happened, he returned my deposit. He said "my wife told me I could store the car for 3 years." Now in my dealings when a man begins a statement with "my wife said/told/allowed..." It's more likely than not BS so I asked him if he had received a better offer he assured me that was not the case. I guess he did.

Very interesting. When did he sell it to you? He also sold it to me with the same story. I was scheduled to pick it up and had to delay by a couple of days and he returned my deposit also. Even sent me videos I asked for. Still have a bill of sale and copy of the title. Weird. There were 2 rust spots the size of a silver dollar. Center of trunk and and Center of roof. Obviously fixed.

Evidently he was working 3 deals at once. Sent my deposit November 29 and was returned dec 2. Seems I bumped you. When he returned my deposit he told me he was going to store it and we'd reconnect in January on his return to Detroit. All attempts to contact him have gone unanswered. At least now I've got closure and can get back in the hunt. Why are some people so gutless they can't be straight up?

But this is especially odd as he quickly returned the deposits, so he wasn't exactly a scammer, just a really, really terrible seller! Of course, then there is this original sales listing claiming it was a tii, whereas a badge was the closest thing the car had to tii status...

VIN 2588876 is, indeed, a U.S.-spec 1973 model, manufactured during the January to August 1973 time frame (according to the BMW 2002 Club of Columbia's very dependable VIN decoder). So who knows where the "1972" originated!

Regards,

Steve

Definitely not a scammer .... I had him send me a copy of the vin, both sides and a copy of his drivers license as well as new videos of the car running and driving that he made prior to me sending my deposit. Just lied to people while he worked parallel deals. At least with eBay when you win a bid, you know it's yours. I'm up in Canada and invested a few hundred dollars to arrange the import paperwork, let alone the time and effort. I've been in situations where a buyer has tried to scoop a previous offer I had received as a seller and if it's under $1k difference I have the integrity to follow through with my commitment to the first buyer. If it's over $1k then I go back and explain the situation and give the individual first right of refusal. So Nick I know you're being copied on this stream. I have no issue if you got a better offer. Congrats. Just don't tell us you're storing the car for 3 yrs or that we'll reconnect in January. What's the point of that?

Steve you are correct. Never any intention to scam me, or apparently anybody else. Just, as you said, a poor businessman.

 

Back2BMW, I do believe that if you had a signed bill of sale and accepted deposit, Nick should make you whole on your expenses. If you were so inclined you could sue him, though the amount is too small to bother. Small claims court?

In my opinion, a man is only as good as his word. If you agree to a deal and take a deposit, you damn well better follow through with the sale. Someone offers more AFTER the deal and after a deposit is received? A man with integrity would honor the original deal, you don't play games. Just my $0.02.
