2008 E90 M3 6MT 39k Miles

Just posted. It's not showing up in the appropriate classified page but here's a link:

https://www.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh...php?p=26965255

There are more pictures on the linked page. Sorry for the basement garage pictures, but it's been pouring.

Thanks for looking!

Here's the post, essentially:

Up for sale is my 2008 E90 Base M3 6MT. Iím going to start off by disclosing that this M3 is a 1-accident vehicle. It IS NOT a branded/salvage title and drives just as well as any other non-accident vehicle. I am including the CarFax that I received when I purchased the car just over a year ago.

Onto the car:
2008 BMW M3 Base Sedan 6MT Ė 39k Miles
Silverstone
Silver Novillo Leather
Carbon Leather Interior Trim
Single Hump - No NAV
No Sunroof

Add-ons:
M-Performance Alcantara Steering Wheel (Yellow Stripe)
M-Performance Exhaust
Weather Tech Floor Mats and Trunk Liner
Tint

I bought the car a little over a year ago from an Acura dealer in NJ. It was a great find, but I was also skeptical because of the accident on the CarFax. When I went to see the car, I found an old registration card from the previous owner. I reached out to the individual and he turns out to be an avid forum member (though his handle escapes my mind right now). He was the second owner and had only put a few thousand miles on the M3. He told me that the original owner was a doctor from MD, who was involved in the accident, and he ended up selling it because of back trouble. He explained that he got rear ended at a stop sign which caused damage, later found to be damage to the rear bumper (Fixed Properly and have a structural report from a third-party vendor). The vehicle sat for some time, so when the second owner (Forum member) bought the vehicle, he flushed all of the necessary fluids, including transmission, oil, brake, etc. He also installed new pads, new Michelin PS4S tires, M-Performance exhaust, and M-Performance Alcantara Steering wheel. That owner then sold the vehicle because he wasnít using it much and was buying a house.

Thatís when it comes into my hands. I bought it to use as my daily and for my long commute. About 4 months in I realized that I didnít want to put the miles on it, so I bought another commuter and used this as a weekend car. Having a baby, a job where I travel often, and house renovations does not allow time for much of anything. I try to drive it once to twice a month, but that doesnít always happen. I bought it with 27k miles on it and put 11-12k miles on it since.

The car absolutely brightens up your day. I always wanted the 6-speed manual sedan M3 and I finally got it. Unfortunately, I would much rather see someone else be able to actually drive it than to see it sit as much as it does.

The exterior is a 7/10. Minimal rocks chips in the front, but a few blemishes around the vehicle. I took pictures of those. 1 Scratch on the rear bumper on the drivers side, two blemishes on the driverís side sideskirt, and 2 marks on one of the lines on the front passenger door.

Transmission feels great, tires have lots of tread, and handles extremely well. No rattles inside. I have not changed out the Rod Bearings (I feel its similar to the IMS issue with 911sÖ.not as prevalent as the internet suggests Ė especially with the treatment and mileage)

I donít NEED to sell the vehicle, but am not using it as often as Iíd like. Iím a motivated seller but do not appreciate lowballers and I donít need help selling the car. I believe the price is very reasonable in the market. Ask any questions. I'll be as honest and open as I can be.

My zip code is 18013. Iím an hour and change from NYC and 1:30 from Philly. The winter tire and wheel setup is not included, but we can work out a deal with the vehicle. The setup is VMR CSL Reps with Michelin Alpin tires.


Price: $28,000
Miles: 39K(May go up slightly)

I think you posted it under E90post, try posting it again under M3post just to get more traction.

Nice ride, the stripper spec, 6MT and low mileage are all big pluses. Silver interiors usually go the slowest, but heck for that price even with the accident I'd live with the interior.

Thanks for the heads up! I'm rarely on the actual laptop/desktop version, so it was a bit foreign for me.

I feel the same about the color combo. Did not care for the silver interior, but it was a great find.


***Also, extra information:
VIN:WBSVA935X8E215102

Car is going in for inspection Next Week

Very nice. Love the Silverstone. If I hadn't just bought an M3 I would be very interested.
