Thats going to be one hard sell... Its probably worth  half what the asking price is...

Nsw stat laws basically write off any small damage. i wouldnt be worried about the damage/repair but the price needs to reflect the lower worth. 
 

typically i see heaps of aus imports being listed for 20-30% less than nz market value.

I had a pre purchase inspection done on a bmw x3 a few years back at auckland BMW. I asked them to quote any recommended repairs and they sent me a quote for $19000 dollars.

$13,000 Was new headlining I sh*t you not, it was sagging and had nicotine stains. 
 

I imagine if they took it to the dealer they could have gotten an astronomical quote for fire damage and smoke contamination.

Also if fire melted wiring it could have been quoted as whole new wiring loom for car when a wrecker could cut and splice. 
 

New main looms can have massive labour costs.

Surely you'd bet on that being a mistake. BMW NZ and their dealer network are complete rip-offs yes, but I'm sure $13k for a headliner can't be right.

I picked up the report in person, service tech confirmed it was 13k and not 1.3k. 

I think that might actually be better than the $3000 dollar quote I just got from MB for 2 control arms (not installed just parts). Its atleast a decent sized item and was an installed price.

I assume it will appeal to MX 5 and Toyota 86 drivers, good handling but no power. Future classic well a 135i will be and maybe a 130i but a 325i debatable.
