Anyone live near Schomp south of Denver, check out a car for me?

Hi all, hoping someone may be able do drive by and take a look at a white 2011 e90 M3 they've got. I'm on the east coast and hate to buy sight-unseen.

It's a low mileage 2-owner car with Comp package and little else. My fear is that it was thrashed as a track car for a couple of years then discarded, but it may be hard to tell.

Any help is appreciated!

I can give you a little background and get you in touch with someone who looked very seriously at this car - shoot me a PM.

Hi dnvrdrvr,

Can i get that info as well? I was planning on driving up there to check it out.

For anyone looking (like myself), Porsche of Colorado Springs just picked up a '11 E90 M3. Gray with silver/black interior. Asking $46 or $47. ~23000 miles. Ask for James Polyefko. I took it for a drive yesterday. It's definitely on my shortlist. I am still holding out for a white one but if I can't find one soon, I might be going back.

Will

Silver Stone 2 with palladium and black interior, DCT, premium package 2, 19s, cold weather carbon leather trim, 26k miles and a 1 owner. There may be other options as well but that's what I was told until they take ownership of it.

Looks like this car sold?

I test drove it a few weeks ago, along with the SGM e90 with DCT they had. Both cars were in great shape from what I could tell...

Hopefully the new owner had a new clutch put in as part of the deal.

LOL, yeah, and budgeted for a new differential as well. I hope whomever ended up with it was either armed with this knowledge or has good fortune to smiled upon by the gods of German reliability.

Happy to say I'll be officially joining you all here on the E9x side soon, I put a deposit on a car today

Yikes! Clutch felt fine when I drove it...other than a soft pedal.

Anyone know any secrets about the SGM e90 they have there? lol

Congrats Malthusian! What's the details on the car??

The DCT e90 there was in the same 'event' as the white one. It's not being CPO'd for a reason

Congrats Malthusian - details please!

Sheesh...now you're making me paranoid I actually considered buying that car (they wouldn't give me what I wanted for my ZHP trade in). Guess I will make sure to ask here first about any car I'm looking at buying.

Hey all, thanks for the help and guidance. This exemplifies what the forums are all about.
I hate to jinx myself before I actually pick up the car, so I'll probably just start a new thread next week after the E90 is home.
Really going to miss my 135i (and all that delicious torque), but I'm sure I'll find much to love about 8400 RPM.
Stay tuned....

Hi all, I am late to this thread but interested as I bought the frozen silver edition that was at Schomp at the same time at the white and silver e90s. I almost got the white one but it was a bit to plain...

Any of you have the scoop on the frozen. It has been good with the exception of secondary air injectors failing but that was covered under warranty. Thanks, Thom

That car was not used in the event like the others. Nothing to worry about.
