Totally Agree! I watched only 1 Video from Vehicle Virgins and then never opened a video of him again. When I am bored, I watch the theStradman videos

I am in the same boat. I liked his original work before he went into business mode.

I haven't learned a damn thing about detailing from him but he's got a cool setup. You guys actually watch this guy mumble to himself about random stuff? This is entertaining?

I was watching the video thinking to myself: "a car with these exact specs might not even exist". It kinda blew my mind.

I'm looking forward to seeing what he does with it.
Sounds exactly like the car that was for sale here in Toronto for a while. Original owner, low mileage 2013. If I recall it was listed in the mid $40s CAD which is a steal for a US buyer. I haven't seen that spec anywhere else in the US or Canadian market in the last 12+ months, so it has tk be the same one.

Not the same car. Mat's car seams to be a Comp pack (if possible), at very least has the wheels. It is crazy how fast he was able to find almost identical vehicle.
G took his LeMans of the sell sites. Not sure if it has been sold or if he is just taking a break from the whole listing thing, its been there for a while.

Ah. Definitely not the same, and this has ZCP too. Great find.

Here is the long-winded answer (just what you guys seem to like...).

I wish I was clever enough to tease the idea of getting a car that I already had locked down, but that's not how this went. I was toying with the idea of selling my Raptor for another E92. I shared these thoughts publicly. It's fascinating that no matter how transparent I am, people always think there is some secret agenda.



There isn't any current car outside of an E63S that I was considering. Buying one for $130,000 and selling it a few years later for 50% of that doesn't seem like a smart move. Since I quit my job to make YouTube videos, I need be a little more conservative.

My old M3 was Le Mans Blue, Comp Package, Manual Seats, No Nav, No PDC, Leather Seats car. The main reason I did that back in 2010 when I ordered the car was to keep the cost down. Now it seems to be the car most of us would want. I threw it out there in video and on the OG Facebook group that I was looking for a car as close to my original one as possible.



That lead to quite a few rather obsessed people searching for the car at the same time as me. The one I bought showed up on True Car. I called on hour or two after the dealer posted it. The car has a euro front bumper and had paint work done. I almost dismissed it. Supposedly it was backed into in a parking lot, so it has an accident reported in it's history.

My friend Mike flew to LA from SF the next morning to vet the car. He is just as particular as me, and it was more than acceptable. I bought it that morning less than 24 hours after they listed it. I was looking at 5,000 mile $70,000ish cars, but I think this is smarter move. I intend to drive this thing. It's a 2013, 32,000 Miles, $43,000.

Here is the spec. I don't like that it has PDC, but it appears the front bumper has been coded out.












I posted a photo on Instagram that I found the car and bought it. Then the emails started for the Raptor. I posted a photo and price and sold the Raptor for $65,000 in about an hour.

So that's the story. Now the wait for the E92 begins. I overnighted the paperwork back yesterday and scheduled Reliable Carriers to ship it across the country. 1-6 week estimate... I guess you have to wait for the best.

I'll probably do exhaust first. Macht Schnell catless mid-pipe and Eisenmann Black Sport w/ BPM Sport Tune. I'm going to force myself to take it one thing at a time and try to enjoy the process.

Congrats on finding a nice car.

I have an 08 that I ordered new with 50K on it and an 18 Raptor. Being the owner of both I understand your decisions of course but I wouldn't give up my truck for the car. As your kids grow you'll see why. You'll be in a baller SUV or another truck before you know it.

Great color, great spec, great find.

Car could probably use a good detail, hopefully you know somebody...

Nice purchase! I love that color--that's the only thing I would do again if I could. Otherwise, my car is almost identical spec---though I don't have PDC and mine is (boring) white.

I'm sure you'll love it as much as I love mine. There hasn't been a day when I wished I had more features. If you love to drive, it's the purest experience in the e9x lineup.

If you're looking to sell the Dinan exhaust, let me know.

Congrats! Afaik, front parking sensors were never a factory option on the E9x M. Only rear.

Thanks man! HQ is getting cooler by the minute. Sonic Cabinets and Tools will be here to complete the demo area, my Podcast studio is done, and I'm getting more shelving tomorrow to display all of the cool stuff. I'm working on a Master Plan for the next location!

Yeah, I'm guessing I'll have something. My wife drives the Gen 1 Raptor, so I won't be Raptorless.
