**The angel eyes will not be included in the sale, sorry**
Finally is time to hand the keys over to someone else, I've enjoyed this car a lot and am sad to be letting it go, but it's time for an M3.
I bought the car on 5/27/2006 with 60k miles on it.

**The above is taken from the oriental price stick (still have it, I also have about 75% of the maintenance and services paperwork, i threw some out while doing DIY and lost some others).
I am in no hurry to sell. No tire kickers, cash in hand to test drive, be more than happy to give you a ride if seriously interested and do not have cash.

I'll be adding more once I have time to detail the outside of the car and finish the inside, hopefully by the weekend everything will be up.
The interior is probably one of the best for it's age besides A, B, C pillars need to be re-wrapped and door trim appearance issues.
The exterior is has normal rock chips and door dings, along with it being keyed a couple months after getting the car (still no idea why it was done, or who did it, just didn't bother me much and didn't get it fixed).
Mechanically it runs great, engine is strong, it will need new rotors coming up, also will be having the oil changed by the end of the month (June). Also, ambit temperature sensor needs to be replaced, the horn does not work, the outside rubber trim attached to the chrome trim is starting to crack (it is water tight, which is why I haven't bothered to address the issue) and the airbag light has been on since I bought the car, I ran the codes awhile back and it didn't concern me. I just want to be as up front as possible with all known issues.
