Looking for the previous owner near Wilmington NC, owned a white E93,Blk leather 6MT

good day,

I have never seen a car that is 8 years old in such good shape and would like to keep it that way. Im looking to contact the owner to see about a more detailed history of the car. It was up for sale by the owner in the Wilmington North Carolina a couple months ago but I believe it was traded in and sold at auction to a dealer in Raleigh NC were I purchased it last week.

I believe it has an axle back Actie Autowerkes exhaust,however, given how loud it is i'm wondering if it has high flow cats as well?

The car seems to be lower than stock, were springs installed?

what were your maintenance routines?

if anyone knows how to contact the previous owner, please let me know.

thank you

-Mark

I live in Wilmington, but don't recall ever seeing that car. I'll ask around.

I believe the Previous Owner had it for the last 7 years and drove it less than 4K miles per year.

I would like to find out what tune the car has as well.

I appreciate your efforts

How about a picture to see if anyone recognizes the car?

Hello,

I've tried to upload pictures and failed several times.

its an alpine white E93 6MT with ZCP wheels and black interior, performance steering wheel and that's about it. very clean and simple, no aesthetic mods other than the ZCP wheels and steering wheel.

Why not hoist it up and take a look?

Seems much less tedious than trying to track down the PO and to ask questions.

I'm not sure hoisting it up would clarify the tune or anything that was coded.

I also think it's awesome to hear people's story's on the cars they loved. Clearly he did and cared for it with very high standards. He owned it for 7 or so years and I can't find a spot of corrosion, rounded off nut, stripped bolt or sign of neglect in any manor. The wheel studs are even immaculate.

If I find him, great and if not oh well, I've got a beautifully taken care of car.

Go to the BMW dealer, show proof you are the new owner, then ask for the service records. When I bought my F30, I asked and received a report which included the PO's info.

Of course the tune or software won't be identifiable, but you'll be able to answer your questions about the xpipe or suspension.

Service docs will likely show the POs name but have the contact info redacted. If not, then yeah - questionable!
