My Ride: 03.5 M3
FS: 2001 BMW 325Ci Topaz Blue 5MT 120k miles (MD)

**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.

2001 BMW 325ci 2D Coupe 120k miles (I believe it's fully loaded, could be wrong I do not know if premium package was listed or not)
Topax Blue Meallic
Black Leatherette
Cold Weather Package ( heated front seats, headlamp cleaning system, ski bag)
Sport Package (17 x 8.0 alloy wheels, 225/45R-17 performance tires, 10 way adjustable sport seats)
Power Class Moonroof
Xenon Headlamps
AM/FM CD Player
2 Keys with keyless entry and 1 valet key
I have 75% of the service and maintenance paper work, I've thrown some of it out by mistake and lost others)
Full sized spare (never used)
MPGs it's listed as 20/29, I typically get 26-28 mixed and 32-34 highway

**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.

All the pictures can be found here: https://picasaweb.google.com/1099231...149/June142012

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.


Maintenance:

Bosch Alternator (119k miles)
New Battery (119k miles)
Struct Reinforcement Plates
Bilstein Struts and Springs, rear heavy duty shock mounts (12/22/09)

I am interested.
Does your car have the following: Automatic operation rear view mirror; Includes: [403] Power Glass Sunroof And [438] Wood Trim And [459] Power Front seats w/Driver Memory.
If it has those things then yes it does have premium.
In that pic I can't tell if you have wood grain trim, but you definitely don't have a wood grain shift knob.
The link to your Picasa photo album is not working.
I would like to see more pics please.
Any rust on this car? I am unfamiliar with Maryland and if they use a ton of salt on the roads in the winter.

It does not have the premium package, seats are manual.

No rust. But it has been keyed, no rust because it's been waxed regularly to prevent it.

Link should work now, google set it to private.

Depends on your opinion. PM me an offer if you're interested. I KBB'd the car at 8,700 for excellent and low 7000s for fair. I would consider this car in good condition by their standards. There are definitely flaws but nothing that isn't expected from an 11 year old car. You will be pressed to find a similar car in the same condition with documented parts and maintenance.

Also, ran an AutoCheck here is the results, my iPad wouldn't find the wireless printer, so I took screen shots.

Tell me about it, I am already regretting selling it, even after buying an M3. It's going to be missed. I'd keep it if my parents would let me have two cars living at home.
