Exclamation 2010 Manual 135i For Sale, $35K

Asking Price:

Item Interest
My 2010 135i 6-Speed is for sale. The car was built to order by me, picked up from the dealership by me, and has been driven by me its entire life. It is powered by a 3.0L, Direct-Injection, Twin-Turbo Inline 6. (N54)

I treat my cars well, and I understand the mechanical components, their limits, and how to treat them for long service life.

The car was broken in properly. (First 1,200 miles under varying throttle loads, never over 4500RPM, ran short amounts of near-full boost once oil was at operating temp to help seal the rings to the cylinder walls)

I paid BMW about $100 or so for the first oil change right after break-in at 1,200 miles.

The car as it sits right now has 31,001 miles on it, most of them highway. 99% of the time I drive my car, it gets to proper oil operating temp. (This allows moisture to be boiled out of the oil, reducing sludge build-up)

I mainly fuel the car with Shell 93 octane, but occasionally I am forced to use Valero 93 octane. The only two fuels that have ever been run through the car are 93 pump-gas and VP MotorSport 109 race-gas.

The car does NOT burn oil, does NOT have waste-gate rattle or slack, does NOT get long cranks, and does NOT have any mechanical/electrical issue that I or BMW Corpus Christi is aware of.

Now, here is a description of the car:

Alpine White Exterior

Coral Red Boston Leather

Glacier Silver Aluminum interior trim

6-Speed Manual Transmission (Lighter than the auto, and this tranny is a JOY to shift, compared to say, a C5 Z06)

M Sport Package (Includes increased Top Speed Limiter, suspension tweaks, 18" Light Alloy double-spoke wheels, Sport Seats, Shadow-line exterior trim, M steering wheel, Anthracite headliner, M door sills)

Comfort Access key-less entry/starting with two key fobs.


Navigation System with updates (Hard-drive based, not the old DVD kind, capable of Real-Time Traffic Information)

Voice-command capable

Premium Hi-Fi Audio system

iPod and USB adapter (includes cable)

I went with manual Sport seats because they are lighter than automatics, AND you won't have to worry about them "Burning-out" in the future. They DO have inflatable side-bolsters, which are absolutely necessary considering the amount of cornering G's this little car can put out.

The car is currently running on a fresh set of Yokohama ADVAN Neova AD08s, 225/40/R18 Fronts @ 32psi and 255/35/R18 backs @ 34psi. (10mm over-size, BIG improvement in grip and ride quality over stock Run-Flats)

The car is otherwise stock besides the DCI (Burger Motorsports Dual-Cone Intake). When you buy the car you will get the DCI AND the stock airbox. (completely un-damaged.)

I can also sell the car with a Up-To-Date JB4 (Burger Motorsports Juice-Box 4) and Data-Logging cable if requested. (USB extension included)

Asking $35,000. MSRP with sales tax and everything included was around $47,000.

PM here, email me at or call 361-244-6287 (my cell, ask for Chris) for more info.
