Upholstery: Leder "novillo"/schwarz – NCSW (Black Leather)

VIN: WBSPM9C51BE698910

Mileage: 80,085 (will increase a little until it sells)
Location: Chattanooga, TN

My Story:
I'm the third owner of this incredible machine. The first owner lived in California and put most of the miles on the car prior to my ownership. The second owner lived in Chicago and barely put any miles on the car. IIRC the second owner only held the car for a few months. I spent months searching for a e90 ZCP 6MT with this option combo until I acquired this car with about 38,000 miles on it when I was living in Pensacola, FL. I’ve been daily driving this car for 5 years and never been let down. It’s been surprisingly reliable. In addition to daily commuting, I autocrossed the car most of that 5 years, competing in 5-12 events per year, sans 2020 when I did none. It’s a wonderful autocross car (Local F Street Champ Car ), a blast to rip through the twisty’s, and still has all the convenience factors to make it a great daily. Of course, gas mileage sucks, but that’s not why you are buying this car. It’s hard for me to part ways, but my kids are getting older/bigger, my wife doesn’t like riding in a small stiff car, and my current job’s commute is pretty long with tons of traffic, so I’m moving to a hybrid to make my old man dad life a little easier. My loss is your gain.

Never smoked in. Records and title in hand. PPI available at buyer expense. I will support the buyer shipping the car, at the buyer’s expense. I do not need help selling the car. I will not trade. I will not accept crypto currency. Would prefer a cash deal, but its not a big deal if the buyer needs financing.

Condition:
Overall I would consider the car’s condition to be 8/10 or good condition.

Exterior:
Beyond a few rock chips and nitpicky imperfections, there is a rubber scuff on the drivers side front bumper and a rubber scuff on the rear driver side door. These are both from autocross cones. They could probably be buffed out, but I don’t have the time or energy to mess with them. The ZCP wheels have some knicks and spiderwebbing and one of the front’s has a small bit of curb rash. The car is missing some of the engine bay undercarriage protective plastic. A few weeks ago I hit some debris on the interstate and it ripped that stuff out. Just haven’t gotten around to fixing yet. There was no damage beyond the plastic.


Interior: There is some leather wear, but nothing broken through. Visible imperfections on the steering wheel, shifter and driver seat. Back seat has a small cut/scratch on the passenger side bottom, about 2 inches, which does NOT actually make it all the way through the leather. I moved a mini fridge in the back seat and it had a broken foot that gouged a bit.

Driveline/Suspension/mechanical etc:
There are no current issues.

Accident History:

The car has only one incident, which was super minor. I was rear ended at a low speed shortly after purchasing the car. Basically a bump at a stop light. It was a minor impact which scuffed the rear bumper cover and damaged the rear bumper cover grille. I reported through insurance and the entire repair bill was around ~$800 for a bumper sand/respray and replacement rear bumper cover grille. The work was done by the Pensacola, FL BMW dealership body shop. It was so minor I debated whether I should even have the repair done, but that’s just not how I operate. Looking at the car now, you would have no idea.

Modifications:
The car is completely stock except for an aftermarket front sway bar. I have the original front sway bar that will be included in the purchase. I dont remember the brand.

I have a set of Apex ARC-8’s and RE71R’s I use for autocross that will be going up for sale too, outside of this post. These will NOT be included, unless the buyer wants to pay for them additionally.

Maintenance History:
All 4 brake pads, rotors, and fluids on DATE using OEM components 11/11/20
Spark Plugs 11/11/20
Oil Changed 11/11/20
Valve Cover Seal 11/11/20
New Tires 3/10/21 CON EXTREME CONTACT DWS 06
New Battery a couple years ago
Air Bag replaced via recall
Battery cable replaced via recall
Replaced Transmission fluid – With OE fluid, occasionally I’d get grinding shifting hard into second gear. After replacing the fluid, 100% fixed.
Replaced differential fluid – With OE fluid, occasionally I’d get a groaning/grinding noise from diff during low speed tight turns, like in a parking lot. After replacing the fluid, 100% fixed.

Because I’m sure people will ask; No Rod Bearing replacement and No Throttle Body Actuator replacement. Throttle body actuators are still working fine, no reason to replace. I don’t buy the rod bearing hype and it hasn’t bit me yet. I planned to do it around 100,000 miles, but didn’t get there.

Major Options (full list in last photo below):
ZCP - Competition Pkg
ZP2 - Premium Pkg 2
ZCV - Convenience Pkg
4MY - Carbon Leather Trim
2MD - M Drive
403 - Moonroof
494 - Heated Front Seats

Summary:
The car is in overall good condition with relatively low miles and it still drives wonderfully. Its as smooth as the day I bought it. It’s really a joy to drive when you have open road. I’m still consistently impressed by how tight the steering feels, how nice it shifts, how smooth the power band comes on, and that sound…ohh the sound. Typing that last sentence makes me not want to sell… *sigh*

Might be because of the accident history ( even if it's minor) and possibly because the Rod bearings were not done?

I know that if I were to purchase the car, if the Rod bearings were not performed I automatically factor in another 2k for a Rod bearing job ontop of the asking price.

Nonetheless it's a very great looking car, hope it finds a great home...
