Feel free to check for pricing and comparisons.

History: Bought from a private party in 2004 with 29k miles with a CPO from BMW, I've put roughly 42k miles on it. The car remained bone stock until 2010 when I installed Ireland engineering subframe bushings, TC Kline S/A suspension, Vorschlag front camber kit, and CCW wheels. The wheels are not included and will be swapped out with stock wheels with Bridgestone KD tires. If buyer wants stock suspension I can revert to stock (but will take time) with like new Koni adjustable shocks with less than 4k miles on them. The only non-service items I have personally done on the vehicle are oil changes.

Reason for sale: moving to San Francisco and can no longer garage car. Car was driven last week from Southern California to Northern California.

This was my dream car since I entered college, however, those days are long gone and I have to let go.

My Comments

Sold 10/14/11 - AutoTrader listing was taken down, so I assume it sold.

7/6/11 Update-  Price reduced to $16,500, but the coilovers have been sold and will be replaced with stock suspension with like new Koni adjustable shocks.

6/27/11 Update - The CCW wheels can be included to for just $1,000 more. Great deal for those!

It's too bad the CCW wheels aren't included because they look amazing. The drop on the TC Kline coilovers is just right and will still look great on the roadstars. The vorshlag camber plates and IE subframe bushings are also big plusses. As for the issues, the rearview mirror is an quick and easy fix, the shift pin service is a bigger job but very common, the front bumper is just unfortunate but looks fixable. The price seems pretty reasonable for the mileage, condition and upgrades.
