HAH! Welcome back. There were a few of double 1M owners but I believe you are the triple! I sold my original 1M in 2013, got my current VO in 2105 but three times.. Wow!

So, I so enjoyed the first two, both VO's, one (the original pick-up at the Greenville BMW facility) was a base version, while the second was decked out. This one, is 100% OEM, with nary a flaw anywhere. The original owner had the entire care PPF'd and quite frankly, although I never did this to my first two cars, looks incredible. Zero road rash, and not a single paint chip/nick.

I began this search about two months ago, when I got the bug... again. Except this time I truly wanted an example that I would keep. Had I known about the valuations, and the trend of them, I would have never sold the first. My goal, because I am OCD to a fault, was the lowest mileage care, in the best condition I could find.

Needless to say, there are not tons of 1M's for sale, and my first choice (1K model that auctioned on Cars Guru just last week) went to someone else for an all in price of around $84K (with buyers premium). That was a bit too much for me, so I returned to the search and started looking at EAG, out of Cincinnati OH. Eric Keller and his crack BMW expert Mike Kent had a 3,500 mile OEM VO with all options. Full wrap, new tires and an exhaustive list of pre-sale services and minor fixes. Let me tell you, these guys are good. Buying the car sight unseen is always a bit stressful, but when it arrive this AM, I could not have been any happier. Virtually perfect...just like they said.
The folks at EAG charge more, however in this case you get what you pay for.
The inspection included items such as the fuse kit in the tool kit, correct and complete mobility kit pump, new tires, new battery, alignment, full fluids (all) flushed and replaced, rebalance of wheels, roundels replaced if any flaw at all, microfilter and even fixing the annoying noise in the drivers armrest.
If that was not enough, prior to shipping (which only took one day), they applied a ceramic coat to the PPF and the car gleams.
This car is 100% investment grade, but I will drive it!
Glad to be back with the 1M lovers and will answer any questions about the purchase. Just ask!
Scott

PS. If you own one, keep it. #3 cost a heck of a lot more than #1. UGH.

Congrats on the acquisition! I was the fortunate one to have picked up your first 1 M from Hilton Head, SC where the gentlemen I believe you sold it to lived. I picked it up with 1800 miles on the odo and it now has over 30k miles of nirvana attached to it. My compliments to you as you impeccably specced and then modded it with some very nice subtle touches. All I've done is add 35% tint; swapped over to smoked quad tips; swapped out the OEM taillights with black lines; and replaced the rear tires.

I'm one of those that prefers the cleaner look of the non-NAV dash, plus I'm also partial to the manual seats. Frankly I would have been happy to find one with either or both of these options, but if I had been the one to originally spec it I would have ordered it with exactly the same factory options you opted for. I consider myself over the moon to find my perfect match.

So my thanks and appreciation for ordering it exactly to my tastes, and long and happy may you run and roam in your third 1 M! If I am ever in GA I will drop you a PM and see if you want to enjoy a reunion with the first one that started your mad love affair with the 1 M.

And be sure to post up some pics when you get a chance. It never gets too old or boring in my opinion to behold the wild and exciting 1 M no matter the color.

Wow is all I can say. So I found her! The subtle black liners on the fender "vents" makes it pop. So glad you have the car, and yes I spec'd it bare bones.

Enjoy.

Thanks. I've definitely been doing exactly that the past 6 + years.


You specced the car with Heated Seats (a must here in the midwest if you drive it year round as I do); BMW Assist w/enhanced Bluetooth & USB; SAT RAD; HK; and Handsfree Bluetooth.


The fender vents are definitely eye catching. But my favorite little detail is the VO accent stripe added to the tip of the CF rear spoiler. Whomever came up with that dandy idea is a genius. You may have forgotten that aspect so I will post a quick pic to remind you. Sounds like you will keep this new one stock, so hopefully it (nor your son Satalite) does not tempt you to repeat the magic.

That's my baby! Miss her tremendously. And yes, there was some kind person on the forum that had arranged for the pinstripe on the spoiler. I loved it. Can I buy it back?
