FS: 2003 525i Blk/Blk - Immaculate, Ex-CPO, All records from Day 1, 100K, 25-30 MPG !
2003 525i Black on Black - Automatic - 100% Perfect Condition - 101k miles

For sale is my daily driver. I purchased this car from the 2nd owner (Certified Preowned Car). The previous owner was a gentle elderly woman who took excellent care of her car. Tires and Brakes are new. Interior shows NEW. Absolutely perfect, zero pixelation, cracks, tears, rips, burns. PERFECT. I have all service records from Day 1 from Habberstad BMW of Huntington, NY. Immediately after purchasing this car I performed an extensive 100K preventative maintenance overhaul at 97k. I have all receipts for all parts purchased from this overhaul. Parts were purchased through Tischer (getBMWparts.com), Habberstad BMW and KOPerformance.com.

Included in this overhaul was the following:

Flushed ALL fluids:

Radiator Fluid
Brake Fluid
Differential Fluid
Transmission fluid w/ new filter and gasket
Oil Change

Replaced spark plugs with NGK Platinum Plugs

Replaced ALL belts, tensioners and pulleys (Total of 7 parts)

FOUR new tires mounted and balanced. Perfect alignment

Power steering overhaul: Replaced power steering pump, reservoir, hoses

Replaced both cabin filters, air filter and fuel filter

Replaced worn intake boot and O-ring

Performed CCV overhaul w/cold climate version -

Pressure regulating - 116175333400
Vent Pipe - 11617533398
Connecting Line - 11617533399
Vent Hose - 11157532629
Vacuum Hose Black - 11727545323
Return Pipe - 11617504536
O-ring, Oil Dip stick Tube to Oil Pan - 11431740045
Cleaned throttle body

Replaced angel eye (Halo) bulbs

Repainted rock chipped front bumper and compounded, waxed and detailed entire car

Replaced rear sway bar links (stabilizer links)

It is very easy to make a list of parts that were changed, but I have gone the distance and saved all the original parts that were pulled out of the car and I have receipts for each and every purchased part. Every single part replaced was OEM. I am a serious BMW fanatic as I have had 3-E36s, 3-E46s, 1-E39 and 1-E92. I have done the work and you get to enjoy it for another 100k miles.

I forgot to mention, The Fuel Filter was also changed with an OEM fuel filter. I have kept the old fuel filter that I pulled from that car. This car gets insane gas mpg

I don't see any pictures. Am I missing something?

Your browser settings might be set to only "display secure content". Usually that means you won't be able to view hotlinked images. You are probably seeing a tiny red box in place of each hotlinked image. Is anyone else having these problems?

Grey dart, if you're interested I can email you the same pics from this posting. Feel free to shoot me an email.

greydart 08-24-2011 07:29 PM

Thanks, I couldn't see them from work. I can see them now.

shahzad134 08-25-2011 10:06 PM

Thanks Meeceboy. I am having some issues regarding people viewing my photos... Can viewers please let me know if they can see the pics?

shahzad134 08-27-2011 01:06 AM

I'm in New York for the hurricane, but don't worry guys. The car will be nice and safe at home. Any offers??

shahzad134 08-31-2011 05:44 AM

Still available. Still negotiable. My loss is your gain... I have spent thousands intending on keeping this car forever, but now I have a new car lined up.
