I love this car, but my new job commute makes it impractical. Bought the car from Passport BMW (Washington, DC suburbs) Oct 2008. I have the original vehicle inquiry report in the photo link below, but to summarize...

2009 e90, manual transmission, Space Gray Metallic, Fox Red Novillo Leather, Premium Package (Power folding mirrors, Universal Garage Door Opener, Carbon Leather interior trim, Digital compass mirror, BMW Assist), Technology Package (M Drive, Xenons, EDC, NAV, Comfort Access, etc.), 19" Forged and polished Double Spoke wheels, Moonroof, Power rear sunshade, Rear manual side window shades, Heated front seats, Park Distance Control, Enhanced Premium Sound, ipod

MSRP new was $68,400.

The only options I did not get was the DCT (it was sketchy in 2009), leather dashboard "extended leather," the fold down seats and ski bag thing, and the headlight washers. 2009 was the year they did the M3 sedan upgrade, so it got the new iDrive, new taillights, and a few other very minor upgrades from 2008 (it also added Space Grey as a color choice for sedans). If you have kids, the sedan is great and the sun screens are a surprisingly useful option.

I also added the OEM alarm and aluminum racing pedals. I also have a short shift kit and a set of painted side reflectors that I never got around to installing. I purchased the car new with the 19s, but also have a set of OEM 18s. I have new summer performance tires for both the 18s (Michellin PS2, less than 100 miles) and 19s (Michellin PSS, less than 500 miles). I have 18" winter high performance tires (Pirelli Sottozeros) currently mounted on the set of OEM 18 rims (these are shown on the car in the photos), if you are interested. The winters probably have about 5-6k miles on them. The 18 rims are pristine, the 19s have minor curb rash (see the photos). Just some advice to those who may not be aware, even if you do not buy the winters from me, if you live in a climate that sees at least some winter weather the summer tires will not cut it. You will need to either park the car when winter weather arrives or buy some all seasons or winter performance tires.

Buyer would be able to select which rims they want (both have TPM). Of course, I would prefer that the car buyer buy both set of rims, both summer tires, and the winter tires to make my life easier, but I will sell the extra rims, matching summer tires, and winter tires separately on here if the right buyer is not interested.

New battery, battery cable, and TCU less than 500 miles ago. The NAV was reflashed at the same time, so it has the slightly sleeker I-drive UI (real time traffic is much more visible now - wish I did it sooner).

Car is in fantastic shape. I had to get the rear bumper re-sprayed once from an SUV rubbing up against my stopped car, but that is it. Minor surface chips as you would expect for a 4 year old car, but nothing you would see without getting up close. No mechanical problems, and all maintenance was done by local BMW dealerships.

It has 32.5k miles, and am asking for at least $40k. I have already been offered $38k in trade for it at Passport BMW. Please understand that this means that I will pay $39,500 LESS when I purchase my new car because your trade in value gets deducted from the purchase price of your new car before they calculate sales tax (tax rate is 4%). I would need to make some money over that amount to make it worth the effort of dealing with a private sale.

Title is in hand, and a local buyer is preferred.

The photos show the 19s stored in my garage rack (and a close up of the curbage), the unmounted 18 summer tires stored in my basement, and of course the car.

Please PM if interested.
