Testing Waters: 2011 DSB 135i 6-MT - immaculate condition!!!

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:
None
Item Interest
EDIT: GONE!!! I hope it goes to a good home since I ended up trading it in.

Also, here is a link to a photoshoot that my car was part of this past Sunday:

http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=505770

Hello all,

As of today, I have in order a new ultimate driving machine that should be getting to me in a few weeks

With that said, I have a couple of options: 1) selling the car outright, and 2) obviously, trading the car in. This is simply to gauge the interest in my beloved 135i.

Specs:

2011 Deep Sea Blue 135i with 6-speed manual transmission
Taupe Boston Leather
Heated Seats
Value Package - which includes the leather and the iPod interface.

As some of you know and have seen on my threads, I purchased a modestly equipped car so that I could create a BMW Performance project, which is why every single upgrade has been from the BMW Performance line. So to get a question out of the way, no this car is not equipped with the M-tech package given that I did not care for anything the package has to offer other than the seats, which I was going to replace with the performance seats anyways. M-tech would have meant wasted money since I was going to replace all the bits also. In addition, the sport seats could be swapped in as well if desired. Another perk is that less packages = lighter, which to me was a determining factor.

From the performance line, the car has the following already installed, and 100% authentic from BMW:

Performance Suspension - MSRP $1840, $1295 discounted.
Performance Exhaust - MSRP $1490, $995 discounted.
Performance Diffuser - MSRP $1769, $1175 discounted.
Performance Spoiler - MSRP $538, $435 discounted.
Performance (Shadowline) Grills - MSRP $132 for the pair, $92 discounted.
Performance Shift Knob - MSRP $118.95, $95 discounted but part of gift if car is sold w/ all performance parts.
Performance Shift Alcantara Boot - MSRP $55, $44 discounted and also part of gift.
Performance Handbrake Handle + Alcantara boot - MSRP $113.59, $98 discounted and also part of gift.

***All discounted prices through Tischer BMW; feel free to verify.***

Outside the performance line, the car has 20% tints all around plus windshield strip ($200), and a full front end clear bra including bumper, hood, fenders, headlights, and mirrors ($750).

The car is in immaculate condition. Washed weekly by hand with a 3-bucket system, and paint sealed every 3 months. Every product used is the best in its class, including microfiber everything that touches the car. If sold outright, all stock parts will be included as well, with the exception of the stock springs which have been sold; however, the rest of the stock suspension is still in my garage.

The car currently has 13,2xx miles and if sold when my new one gets in, it will probably have around 15k-16k miles. If anyone is interested right away and I am offered what I want for the car, I would be willing to get a rental until my new one gets in. Car is obviously under full warranty. In addition, I paid out-of-pocket for a break-in oil change at around 1200 miles, and for another one half way to 15k miles; so, 2 oil changes performed by BMW already that I paid for.

Now on to the pricing. I paid sticker price for the car since I got it 8 months ago (July of 2010) and back then there wasn't much room for negotiation since there were a few 2010 leftovers still roaming around. The price was $37,975.

Taking into account the BMW Performance add-ons (discounted prices) + clear bra + tints, I have spent ~$5200 ($5195) in parts, without including labor on some of the items that required professional equipment for installation. Therefore, using simple mathematics, the price of the car plus the price of upgrades comes at a couple of hundreds over $43,000. I think in order for me to sell it outright, I would like to get around $37,000 firm. I'm in no rush to sell it and much less to accept a low-ball offer. If I don't get what I would like for the car, I could always have it appraised with all performance parts on, and if those don't get accounted into the trade-in value, I could always take them off the car and get most of my money back. The advantage of getting the car as is would be that obviously the parts are already installed, and stock parts would also be included.

Now on to the eye-candy, and do not hesitate to contact me with questions. Thank you!





















EDIT: Added interior pictures









Here is a picture of the latest additions as of yesterday:

Bump for an awesome deal and quick interior shots (please excuse the so-so quality of my point and shoot camera).

Or highlight the lack of Sport option, which is strange in a nicely modified car.
That was no accident...read the first post car is significantly lighter than the highly optioned out ones, and some of us prefer performance over weight (options). Yes, the seats are nice and the only thing I would choose to have from the sports package.

I think I saw you at Shell on Old St Aug the other day, I was driving my e34 touring then and I ended being behind you all the way to B.S. subdivision (I live there). Now that I came across this thread - I recognize the townhouses.....guess you live there.

Absolutely me let me know if you know someone interested in my ride. I'm willing to show it and take anyone for a test drive as long as the person is serious about buying.

Bump for new edit (in red). Car is being returned back to stock with the exception of the performance suspension. Great deal for a 2011 car with only 15,000 highway miles and one of the most sought after BMW performance upgrades, all for $34,500
