a few pics
just to prove that it really exists...
Mine was a lease return being sold by a non-BMW dealer, so it's not CPO. Nevertheless, it had only 21K and a clean carfax and a solid maintenance and service record from BMWNA (yeah I checked all of that out). I'll probably extend the warranty on it just because I don't plan on significantly modding it (just not my thing) and am somewhat familiar with the cost of BMW maintenance out of warranty (let's just say "2002 MINI S with 125,000 and $2500 clutch replacement"...nuf said). I got a great deal on it - although I had to travel down South to pick it up - mostly because the dealer hadn't been able to generate any interest in it. For whatever reason, the wagons just don't sell, and I guess that explains the low numbers imported.
Anyway, I love the car. It's plenty fast, sharp looking, and has some utility value so far as moving kids, dogs, bikes, and the occasional trip to Home Depot (as has been mentioned).
