Man, I'm just going to put it out there and say that IF this was another car and actually had some performance behind it, those fender flares look pretty good, almost Audi-esque.

that bumper still looks like ricer poo poo and why the owner spent all that money is beyond me

It has got holes in it, but I think it is still usable. I ain't never used it cuz I don't know what it is, so it has never been used......I guess "Like Brand New" is what I'm trying to say.

The worst part is I know I've seen other C4s with this same thing done to them, though usually not as well. Why? I don't loving know.

The hilarity lies in the fact that if he had spent $35k on making it look and drive like an awesome C4, he'd be able to sell it for more than $9k. Swap over to a LS1/LS2 with some modifications, and do a sharp restoration of the interior with a high quality paintjob and MAYBE an update to the later C4 bodywork as opposed to the early C4 bodywork, and it'd probably go for a similar price to a real C5.

I also see this a lot on 911's. "1978 1993 911".

This car looks and has the features of any other BMW produced from 2000-2005 LOADED!!! It’s a must see

This BMW is one of a kind!!! There isn’t anything negative you can mention about it inside and out ….. It’s been taken care of really well *washed at least 2x a week and cleaned inside 1x* rarely taken out during the winter, just to keep its battery running.
**Salt Free & Smoke Free car from the south**
It has a 2.5 V6 engine which makes it powerful just like any other BMW, but it doesn’t keep you at the pump either…. Avg. around 30 mpg
I have always changed the oil on time and used BMW SYNTHETIC OIL……..Also I never has put anything beside *93* in its gas tank
Beside for changing its oil, I have never have taken it to BMW or a mechanic …….. it hasn’t caused any problems to me at all
Maybe I shouldn't take the bolded part literally and at the very least the owner did the weird BMW "inspection 1/2" service interval thing, but knowing craigslist I'm not too sure.

4. Ganking

Incorrectly used word in warcraft (Dota, WoW). Noobs mistakingly think infinite form of gang=ganking. Some even use the word "gank" itself even though the word gank means either to steal or to hurt one's feelings according to dictionary.com

N00b_Sux0r: "these guys are gay, they keep ganking me. "
Me: wtf is "ganking"? you mean "ganging"?
N00b_Sux0r: yeah, whatever. Doesn't matter, someone set us up the bomb.



And while I did not find any Down-Under specific definitions for gank, I did find The Aussie Slang Dictionary Online.

For what it's worth, I always thought ganked meant stolen...
