Okay Klipnik. Talk me out of this RWD manual BMW wagon that’s 2 miles from my work.

Honestly, if it wasn’t for that rust, I’d have it now.

I do love a nice E46 manual wagon, and I am also deathly afraid of rust. It’s almost always a deal-breaker for me. But since this car is so close, perhaps you could arrange for an inspection to see how bad it is (or isn’t). If it’s limited to the areas shown, they would be relatively easy to sand down, seal, and repaint.

The only other thing that worries me is that the seller is selling after just a month. It’s hard not to assume he’s found something worrisome about the car and is dumping it. (Perhaps it’s the rust.) But a thorough inspection should also be able to suss that out.
