I am the fourth owner - purchased in June 2013. All previous owners were local CA Bay Area residents & service records all available.
1st owner leased the car from 1999 - 2001
2nd owner bought the car at Stevens Creek BMW as CPO with 44,000 miles in December 2001

Car was serviced at BMW during warranty and then at RennWerks in Campbell since then. I have had the car serviced by my personal mechanic in Mountain View.

I originally bought this car with plans to modify and drive it. Life and work got in the way and I have 3 other cars that I regularly drive. This car is garaged and on a battery tender.

Clean Title - no bodywork done and no accidents

This car is 18 years old and was driven regularly which is what they were built for. That being said there are notable flaws which I am listing below for full disclosure:

- Headliner is starting to lightly sag
- Paint chips on the hood
- Keyless entry remote is not working
- Wear on drivers seat

Recently Serviced Items:

Looks pretty much stock besides the ZHP shift knob. The current owner seems like a knowledgable enthusiast and has done some good maintenance. It does need some TLC as expected for the high mileage, but the price seems fair to me.
