I bought my 2001 325i for $7500 with 130k miles back in 2006. After reaching 200k miles I had the entire M3 drivetrain swap done which enjoyed for about 80k miles. Sadly last year I totaled it after I hydroplaned into a telephone pole.



This spring I picked up this immaculate 02 M3 with 45k miles for $27k

I've got a bunch of maintenance parts ordered that I'll be doing soon! Oil change, tranny fluid, diff fluid, fuel filter, vanos refresh, valve adjustment, rear subframe reinforcement and some other stuff




Laguna Seca Blue = :drool::drool::str8pimpi

Great pickup, really low miles, thats incredible, Looks great man.

Nice ride! Do you know anything about that spoiler? I've been looking for one for a while but have only found lip and window spoilers which I don't like very much.
I think that's the factory aero trim package.

Bought the 330Ci in 2013 for $11.5K and the 325i in 2015 for $3K. Spent several thousand on top of that in maintenance and modifications over the past few years. I drive 25K+ miles a year through hell and high water and need these cars running strong.

Picked up my 2003 325iT in Oriental Blue for $2500 3 years ago.
Sport, Premium packages, heated seats (love them) and back up sensors in addition to the normal stuff.
It only needed a new PS pump, the DISA fixed and 3 window regulators fixed.

It had 161500 miles on it at the time and today it has 196000 miles. Took it on a cross country trip towing my Harley behind it and put 3500 miles on it. How is that for confidence for that GM transmission!


Picture to be posted shortly.

Titan silver and grey interior. 136k miles at $7k
Although there was no service records....and it's been to dealer about 20 times.....but only for "wiper blades replaced" LOL
unfortunately I did not see that the WHOLE front end has been repainted and damaged :(. The front bumper doesn't have any metallic flake and it's peeling, both fenders are peeling around the turn markers and have the sanding marks under the clearcoat, and the hood isn't perfectly aligned and it has slot of sanding marks under the clear coat and big blemishes under the clear coat, the grills don't even fit right, the hood is bend inwards in between the grills...but the interior is good. Just slight wear on the drivers bolster

Bought mine at 118k miles for $6400. Drivers side door has a tiny bit of damage, no big deal though.



Here are my bills so far:



Just gotta redo my suspension (and a few more odds and ends), so probably looking at $2k more to go!

I blacked out the kidneys and chrome window trim after getting the car, no pics of it before. The chrome window trim, black kidneys and new headlight lenses were the best bang for the buck as far as appearance.

Bought my 2003 325xi in July of 2011 for $7500 and my 2000 Sable. Since then I've spent half that much on replacement parts plus a buy back after an accident that wasn't our fault and the repairs to make it right. About 140k on it now.
