Roswell Ga: 2008 E90 6MT: Interlagos/Beige: Unbiased Review

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:

Item Interest
Note: I have no business affiliation with this company of any kind.

I recently drove up to Roswell Ga to inspect a 2008 E90 6MT in Interlagos Blue over Bamboo Beige on behalf of an out of town friend, who ended up declining on this vehicle.

The car is for sale at Palmer Dodge, no warranty/as is, here:

If anyone is actually looking to buy this car, my notes after seeing it yesterday are below, in the event it may be useful to you.

Inspection performed Sat 19 May 2012.

Tire tread depths are: Front left – 6.5 mm right 6.0 mm Rear left – 4.0 mm right 1.8 mm

Tire date codes are: Front left – week 48 2009 right week 48 2009 Rear left – week 16 2010 week 15 2008.

Right rear wheel wear pattern runs from 2.5 to 3.0 mm inside to 1.8 mm outside.

Extensive wheel rash on multiple wheels. Front right particularly bad. Front spoiler under tray scratched/scuffed Child anchor points (3) on top of rear deck are in good condition/secure. Small 1/8” circular blemish / mark / white area on steering wheel leather cover on the outside at 9 o’clock position.

No ripples or areas of mismatch paint noted. Paint work overall “good” condition, numerous scratch/swirl marks. Especially bad on right side of car, in particular right rear door C pillar lower about waist high.

Engine strong, pulls well, brakes stop straight and true

Trunk clean overall. Missing BMW M mobility kit hoses, power cable, sealant cartridge. BMW Factory toolkit present in trunk. Few drops of oil on rear area of took kit securing points. Missing factory tool kit felt cover.

A/C blows cold. Radio sounds satisfactory.

Car only has one key. Factory manuals including service history present in glove box.


Character does count. For too long we have gotten by in a society that says the only thing right is to get by and the only thing wrong is to get caught. Character is doing what's right when nobody is looking... " --J. C. Watts
