WTB Manual 135i

Hey guys, looking to get into a used 135i coupe, manual, <85km, prefer 2009 above, in silver/white/orange with Idrive. ('ve vowed never to have a black car again, doesn't work with my ocd)

I've been spoilt by reliability in the Honda scene so prefer minimal mods. I work in a hospital so no loud exhausts

thanks!

I'm interested in this one right now, but need to sell my car first

I came from an all jap garage in the past. If you loved tuning the Honda you love how easy and cheap it is to do the same with a 135.

You'll get more girls driving a BMW as well

Yeah I've noted that the after market parts are either cheaper or on par, performance gains are more bang for buck and insurance is also less. Does not make much sense when comparing a 10 year old integra (rsx to you) vs a 5yr old bmw.

I've got the girl already =)

09 135i 6MT
Sedona Red
40k's on clock
Sunroof, Pro Nav

Was stock until April 14 when I fitted an ETS IC, BMW Perf exhaust and PTF tune via Cobb. Got the factory IC in a box somewhere but not the stock exhaust. Recently did walnut clean.Also have an unfitted eisanmenn quad exhaust and zieg panel to suit.

Never crashed. Never tracked. Always garaged. Front bumper was repaired by BMW back in 2009 when a guy reversed into me (i was sitting in the car at the time) at very low speed. No other "repairs" ever undertaken. HPFP replaced in... 2012 I think.

Couple of spots of rim gutter rash, can repair first or sell as is

Will take some photos when it's clean if interested.

Hey guys, so thinkin of purchasing the car that I originally linked to this weekend. Does anyone think it's a bad deal? There was a real mint one in brissy I just passed up. My only downside for this one is the older navigation system

I can vouch for a silver 135i on carsales - it's my old car in Vic. N54 2010 with cic business/sunroof/red interior/hifi, manual, no aftermarket mods. I did 30k on it in 3 years, the new owner has done 7k in 2.5 years. I modded with genuine BMW performance exhaust/suspension/short-shift/carbon rear spoiler. Depends on your budget, it is pricey.

Thanks mate, yeah a but pricey currrently, . After I missed the good one in Brisbane it's been hard finding nice examples, lots of dodgy ones so far. They seem like a lot of hassle with reliability issues so plan is to now stick to the Honda and wait for a nice one or just buy a new 135i with warranty down the track.

Fair enough. If it's good though, sometimes you have to pay a little extra for it. Everything is negotiable too. Can't comment on how the current owner treats it, but I drove it as a daily, changed oil every 7.5k, and the only reliability issue I had was the hpfp/lpfp at 12k. The updated parts went in then.

Good luck with your search. They're awesome cars
