My Ride: 05 BMW 325i
FS: 2005 BMW 325i - $11k - Illinois

Well I'm putting my BMW up for sale because I have a little one that will be arriving in a few months and the strollers, etc. just don't fit well. Already have a little girl and cramming 4 people in the car is a little cramped when one is in a booster and the other will be in a car seat. I'm looking to move to an SUV and hopefully an X3 with the 3rd row seat if I can sell the car and find a reasonably priced one.

Obviously if you know BMW's they're awesome. Mine has $88,xxx miles and has been serviced by me as the nearest BMW shop is about 45 minutes and I trust myself with my vehicles more than anyone else. It's an Auto transmission. I've replaced the Fuel Pump with a Siemens (OEM BMW) and the starter with a Bosch as well as the ignition switch (used BMW). I thought the starter was bad so I replaced it when it turned out to be the ignition switch. Haven't had any Vanos problems and no idle problems or noises from the valve cover area that would indicate Vanos problems (possibly replaced before I bought the car?). Tires are about 50% and the car is in excellent shape all around. I think there is one small car door ding. Emblems have all been replaced as they had peeled or faded. I can get more pictures as needed. Has the Cold Weather Package and Sport Package with the "better" looking wheels... or so I think. Also, zero accidents since I've had it and none reported when I had bought it. I should still have the Carfax when I bought it and it scored a 96 carfax rating.

I love the car and hate to get rid of it but life requires me to. I'm asking $11k because that's what my payoff is, not looking to make any money and can't really budge on it right now because I don't have the extra money. If I can't sell it I'll be forced to take a loss on a trade-in. I had a few dealers offer me $9500 on trade but I believe it's worth quite a bit more than that.

Here's a few pics... these are before the new emblems. I can get newer ones and more interiors if I see some interest. Message me for more info.

I actually traded this in on a Toyota Rav4 back in May '12 which I then traded on a 13' Kia Sorento last week (Rav4 was a POS)... lol. I will always miss this car... lots of fun!

yeah I looked at X3s but they were just too expensive, unable to pull my boat legally, and not nearly as fuel efficient. There are tradeoffs both ways.
