"Look at the two under the hood photos. They are different. I wonder which one is the real picture?"

I emailed the seller (Bimmer Bros.) to ask, since I was curious as to which was the car in the rest of the pictures. The response was pretty ridiculous:

"Same car same day. different lighting."

Pretty powerful lighting if you ask me. Here's the big differences I noticed (there are a lot more):

Different radiators - first picture has a 2002 radiator, 2nd has a plastic tank 320 unit.

Missing windshield washer reservoir in 1st picture, present in 2nd

Rusted air cleaner lid in the first picture, painted silver in 2nd.

Cold air pipe hooked up to airbox thing in 2nd, missing in 1st.

Area around headlight buckets painted black in 2nd picture, not in first one.

DOT height spring spacers present in first picture, removed in second.

Different colored strut top caps.

Hood rusty around edge in 2nd picture, not as much in 1st

Writing worn off VIN plate in 2nd, still there in 1st

catch. I would normally say the worse picture is probably the real one but they are both real bad. look at the rust around the perimeter of the hood.

You can see a side reflector in that one like in the rest of the pictures. I'm not 100% sure (or 100% "rust free" for that matter) but it seems you'd be able to see it if one was there in the 2nd picture.

Also different clamp on upper radiator hose. What are these guys trying to pull?

Also Bosch blue coil in lower photo. Different in upper.

Feels a little like Peat and Repeat in "Children's Highlights" magazine.
