*****UPDATED: I AM IN NO RUSH TO SELL THE CAR. I WILL ONLY SELL IF MY PRICE IS MET*****








These past few weeks have been quite a mess for me as far as deciding what to do with my car. It originally started off as keeping her as my daily driver and to pick up something for the weekends and the "once in a blue moon" Fridays, to selling her and buying something different - smaller, faster, more nimble etc., to trading her with a monster FI vehicle, back to selling her again. Selling her right now is the best option for me.

The reason I want to sell is because I want something smaller, more sportier, and more nimble. I love this car to death and I've had her for over two years with absolutely ZERO PROBLEMS. The carbon build-up issue has been addressed and this car does not suffer from it and never did before I owned her.

The car is bone stock with 60127 miles on the dot. The exterior looks great as does the interior. Not very many people sat in the backseat of my car since I've bought, only a handful of times. The car is mint inside and outside.

Maintenance items I've done to date:

-Both MAF's replaced at 57K miles. It is recommended that these be replaced every 60-65K miles, I did a bit earlier.

-All four CPS sensor have been replaced, both exhaust sensors and both intake sensors

-Gear/tranny and diff fluids were changed at the same time the MAF's were replaced.

- Spark plugs were changed with stock NGK ones at ~50K miles. These were changed by a forum member, "orijinal poser" on the board.

- Air filters were replaced ~2000 miles ago and they're recommended to be replaced every 10-12K miles.

-Rear 275's were just replaced and have less than 100 miles on them. The front 245's have around 400 miles on them. So, tires are good to go.

-Brake pads were replaced around ~50K miles


I bought the car from an older gentleman that retired from the govt and was planning on moving to Florida to live by his sons. He said the miles he put on the car were all highway miles and very rarely did he drive in the city.

I have never tracked the car except when I first bought her and wanted to see how I'd do at the drag strip - I ran a 13.03@110

The clutch feels like brand new and has never been replaced, nor does it need to be replaced. It holds strong.

I've changed the oil every 3000 miles religiously with Castrol TWS 10w-60 oil.


PRICE: $34,000 . My price is firm, guys.

Beautiful car, if I was in the market I would snatch this up in a second, especially knowing those problem areas are all taken car of. Good luck with the sale.

Oh, I'm in no way a tire-kicker, but I know KBB value is around $29,000 for a similarly equipped car, but I think your price is fair considering all of the recent work done to it. Just giving a heads up in case of low-ballers.

Too bad you live on the other coast. We could have traded cars. That's the exact car wife & I want maybe few years down the road.

I live down in Arnold off College Pkwy, and I'm sure I've seen your car around the area. I gotta say...it's amazing-looking to see in person going down the road. Too bad I'm in the market for a 3-series, and don't have the cash for a car of this caliber. Good luck on the sale...up!
