I'm a new member here and I'm excited about joining the ranks of 135i owners. I was hoping to find a used 135i that's not too far from Chicago. Here are the general features I'd like:
-Color: anything other than AW, but I prefer the darker colors
-Mileage: flexible as long as the price is in line with the mileage
-Tranny: preferably 6MT - I might consider a DCT, but I haven't tried one yet
-Options: I'd really like the M-sport package, but I'd also be seriously tempted by any of the other options (in particular, leather and heated seats)
-Warranty: I'd be particularly interested in a car that still has a reasonable bit of warranty or CPO
-Mods: I'm a bit of a modder, so it would help if the car already had the right ods on it. I'd be putting in an aftermarket tune (JB4?), coilovers, upgraded FMIC, water/meth injection, cold air intake, and maybe exhaust. Other things may also be nice.
But all of those factors aside, the most important things are price and reasonable proximity to Chicago.
In case anybody is interested, I could trade a 2004 Infiniti G35 coupe with ~85k miles and automatic transmission (plus cash on my side, of course).
