Although i totally love the performance of this car, and the looks, I've decided I'm going to move on and therefor am putting my car up for sale. I'm selling this car only because I want to move on to a E92 M3.
For those that know me, I'm very anal about this car and its not my daily driver, so during bad weather, it stays safe in the garage. The paint is in good condition and its hard to find any swirl mark, I've really tried hard to wash this car with the best sheepskin mitt and waffle weave drying towels available. I drive this car on weekends, don't race it, and make sure to warm it up before going above 2k rpms and cool down before shutting off the car after driving.
The car is out of warranty by a couple months but has been great since I've owned it. My only issue with the car in 4 years was a HPFP, during the first 6 months I owned it. The car has been maintained by BMW and then by AutoCouture Motoring, oil changed every 5K using BMW recommended oil. I just had the valves cleaned 1 month ago and the coolant system flushed this summer. Spark plugs were changed a year ago or 7k miles ago.

I'm asking $26,500
with the wheels, $24,500
The wheels were driven on for 2 months and don't have a scratch on them, they are basically brand new!
Issues with the car?
1. Two small paint chips above the passenger rear wheel arch (barely noticable)
2. Rear bumper was repainted/repaired due to a 5mph or less bump from my sister in my parents driveway on thanksgiving, the first year I owned the car. The car was parked and she backed into it while trying to leave the driveway. This was extremely minor and no real damage, you can't even see any difference in paint or fitment issues. If I didnt' tell you, you wouldn't know.
