Asking Price:
USD 10,500.00

Or Best Offer

Item Interest
2010 BMW 128i 6MT, Stock, Sports Package, no iDrive, 71k miles, located in Peninsula area Northern California. Asking $10500 obo.

- I'm the third owner, first was a lease, second was CPO. I was considering a 1M/M2 as a future vehicle and wanted to spend time in something close first. And I wanted the least amount of electronics/nannies in the way, so this spec was perfect. Purchased from a dealer trade-in in Oct 2018.
- I put on ~11k miles in almost two years of ownership, all commute miles. I have other cars to be irresponsible in ��.
- Selling cause I have too many cars.
- Runs great, buttery shifts, gets 21-23mpg, zero issues during ownership.
- Links to photos of exterior/interior, service/repair docs, and really boring 20min video of me driving (to substitute for a test drive) available upon request.

- SULEV N51 engine, 100% NorCal-located car
- Jet Black on Black Leatherette
- Sports package (sport suspension, sport seats, M-style steering wheel, Shadowline trim, and wider tires on 17-inch rims)
- No iDrive (took me awhile to find a 6MT sports package car without iDrive)
- Moonroof (came standard that year, not a delete unfortunately)
- Basically no options besides the must-have sports package

- I'm starting to hear a very intermittent quiet squeak (1-2s every few minutes on 50% of my drives) that sounds like the serpentine belt is slightly mis-aligned or loose. Common with these engines around 60-90k miles, calling a shop soon about it.
- No other known mechanical issues.
- Paint is 8/10, has like 4 small dents and a driver-side bottom skirt scuff last I looked (photos in album) and swirls/hard water marks typical for a black car that will eventually buff out if you work on it, both front/rear bumpers are perfect though (see damage note below)
- Interior is 8.5/10, has a small rip in the passenger B-pillar from prior owner, small nick in the floor carpet, very minor chipping on edge of a few stereo and A/C unit buttons, speedometer top cover has a shiny area
- Trunk tail light is cracked (common issue), I replaced this when I got it but clearly I didn't install it properly, was going to do a more permanent fix but will let the next owner do it
- Tires are 80% (Pirelli Cinturato). They were brand new when I purchased from the dealer, along with new brakes, so at least another 30-40k miles left on them. Wheels have little to no curb rash (hi-res photos available)

- Just did a service around 69k miles:
- Oil change/filter (FCP Euro bundle: Pentosin 5W30 + Mann filter)
- Cabin Filter (Bosch)
- Air filter (Mahle)
- Screenshot and Carfax summary of 2009-2014 standard, non-standard, and recall services from BMW dealers.
- No records from 2014-2018 except for dealer recall services.
- All recalls should be current (only had the blower motor wiring done during my ownership on 11/19/19)
- Should be good on services up to the 80k scheduled maintenance

No accidents but damage reported on Carfax:
- Had two separate fender benders in the same parking instance while at an offsite with coworkers, one front and one rear (yup, two cars hit my parked car within a 2hr span). Very minor aesthetic damage and replaced front bumper, front grill, rear bumper through insurance (I have all paperwork and before pictures). Damage is reported on Carfax but not marked as an accident.
- No other known damage/accidents.

- Bought new OEM floor mats after car purchase
- Came with OEM all weather mats, included
- No rear 128i badging (came like this when purchased)

Mods (if you can call it that):
- Changed bottom seat subs to a pair of Earthquake Sound SWS-8Xi, still have OEM subs and will include
- Bone stock otherwise

Asking $10500 obo. I'm mostly a lurker here so let me know if I'm doing something incorrect with this FS post. Text me (four one five) 223-3920 or DM me here for more details and links. Located in Peninsula area, NorCal.

To brake is to admit defeat.
