Hello team,

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).

Thanks!

Hey Shan, mine is for sale and I live in St. Louis, so you're relatively close. Won't find a better 135i, and all stock parts included. Hit me up if interested, thanks.

Thanks guys... they're both tempting offers. It would be stretching my price range a bit, but they're definitely on my radar. I probably won't be able to travel to NY until at least December, so I'll consider that if it's still available then. St. Louis is a much more doable trip...

Look into this one. Car has been babied by me and I am the original owner. I know it is white and you want something else, but look at it this way, with the money you're going to save you can get a wrap... just something to think about

Ha... thanks, but SC would be quite a hike for something that's not completely in line with what I was hoping for...

Thanks guys, those are both very tempting suggestions. I've actually found one at a reasonable price that's exactly what I want, so I'm hoping to buy it next week assuming no hitches. But if that doesn't work out for some reason, I'll definitely keep these in mind.
