Anyone looked at this GTS at EAG.

I am looking for a GTS, and this one of the few white ones available.

https://enthusiastauto.com/bmw/m3ser...-gts-2892.html

Interested if anyone has seen this one and thoughts. In talking with Evan about it, he says the largest flaw is the PPF and would recommend it being replaced.

Seems strange that it claims to not be tracked, but tires were warn down needing to be replaced.

Did it say they were worn? Cars almost 7 years old. Tires would be too and should be replaced for car resale.

I looked at the car via their web site. Where do you see that the tires are worn (warn) down? Highly UNLIKELY this car has been tracked. What you are seeing is 30 and 35 series tires which have very little sidewall.

I purchased an M3 from EAG and they put their cars through a significant reconditioning program bringing everything up to new standards (where necessary). I would not hesitate to purchase a car from them.

In all likelihood the tires have been replaced but why don't you ask them? If you are a serious buyer they will gladly take pictures of the date codes on each tire.

The ad says “new Michelin Pilot Cup 2 tires” and EAG is too high of a caliber shop to lie… I think it’d a be solid option.

Michelin PSC2 tires begin with 7/32 of tread which is 5.55mm. The report indicates the tires have 4mm and 5mm of tread - within specification and IMO hardly used. Likely the original tires had 2016 date codes and EAG is replacing (replaced) the tires for safety reasons.

I realize it's hard to see the forest through the trees, but really, a little research on your part would have turned up this information and you would not have looked so foolish nit picking a tire replacement on a 6-year-old car.

Ask for a picture of the exhaust. Just something I observed with my car, the exhaust gradually transitioned colors with track sessions. I think my car had ~500 miles on it from the previous owner and the exhaust was the plain titanium color when I bought it.

Unless you are looking for a concours car, 1700 miles is nothing, even if it is all track miles.

Was not trying to pick, just don't want to buy a problem.

This car is pretty sick. If I didn't buy my m2cs a few months ago I would've bought this now. I might still sell the cs in the spring and go back to the f82 platform

I was cross shopping with the M2cs also, both great cars.

If you're looking for a gts though EAG is a great place to shop. I'll likely pick up my next car from them if I ever get another BMW in the future.

If you're okay with paying $20k over market for the car, looks like a great option.

EAG is not my bag though.
