My Ride: BMW
SOLD: BMW 328i Sedan -1999 - 43k miles
I am moving across the country to start back up on college and unfortunately I can't take the car with me. I hate to have to sell it as it is a solid car with very low miles. I planned on keeping it for the next 10-15 years for long road trips (and maintained it as such) because it is very comfortable, secure, reliable, and is great on gas. To and from work (~30 mi. @ 55mph) I get 29-30 mpg. At 70-75 mph I get around 27 mpg. I am asking $10,500. In summation, this car is for someone who needs/wants a reliable, comfortable car.
The difference in buying this car vs. other cars you are looking at is that I have preemptively replaced over $7000 worth of parts (within the last 7 months) that could've possibly failed after time. That might sound really crazy to some but I did this so I wouldn't have to worry about anything breaking on the car for the next 100,000 miles (and leave me stranded somewhere). Be mindful of the future costs and expected failures when looking at other vehicles.
If you are dead set on buying this car, I will offer to pick you up at the airport so you can drive home in your new car!

This car has been meticulously mechanically and electrically maintained by me and the BMW Dealership (I'm an aerospace Maint. Tech. working alongside NASA). I have ensured that it will be very reliable. Everything works as brand new; you will be pleased. All of the usual parts that wear out have been replaced early or upgraded to lifetime warranted parts so there is no need to worry there. I can also walk you over all that was done when you come to check out the car. The car's exterior has a few parking lot dings and scratches from the previous owner and the paint does show some blemishes from being out in the sun but it has never been in a wreck/accident and has no body rust. (it has also never been up north and has only seen snow once when I was visiting Oklahoma).
It only has 43,122 original miles on it (Don't worry, the dealership can verify this). The first owner was an older gentleman that used it as his Sunday car and only when it wasn't raining. I have only used it for commuting to work (60 miles a day) and for long road trips. My most recent one was this December with a 4000 mile round trip to visit my family out west. The car was solid. The BMW recommended oil change interval for this car is every 15,000 miles with full synthetic so it is very economical. (I end up changing it once a year anyways, just to baby it). I can tell you the full story of this car and I have all of the receipts for all of the repairs and replaced parts.
The car currently has an optional DVR "Black Box" video recording system installed. (You can see it in the pictures below, next to the rear view). It records video in case there is an accident. You can then use the video as evidence. Pretty nifty. It also currently has a built-in Beltronics STiR+ GPS radar detector installed. Alongside it is a Dual Laser-Interceptor laser blocking system (the best there currently is). The DVR, radar, and laser blocker are available with cash on top and are totally up to you.
PM me to set up a time to come check it out. I can give you my number or feel free to request any more pictures or information.
