Time to Part ways

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Well I only had the pleasure of owning a beautiful 135i for a short period of 3 months. I must say i have loved every second of it. I came across a deal a few days ago that i could not refuse. I never had the intention to sell my 1er in this short period of time. I planned on at least keeping it for 3-4 years before upgrading but the cards were played right on my table that i just couldn't say no to it. Let me cut to the chase.

I had the privilege of going to test drive a nice 2009 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG this past week. Needless to say i fell in love as soon as i hit that throttle and the pure roar came out of the AMG exhaust. Never in years i would have imagined to drive such a great car, so the dealer wanted to negotiate. I sure as hell wasn't ready to move up and buy a new vehicle since i just recently purchased my 1 series. A few days went buy and stopped by the same dealer to tell them, it is completely out of my budget at this moment in time. Before i walked out, they stopped me, and the sales person immediately called his GM and talked to him on the phone. The GM requested to speak with me personally and within seconds he made an offer that had me in stand still position. HE offered my full pay-off amount. Well i rolled over some negative equity from the previous vehicle i owned and when he offered to pay it off in full i was speechless. Well i went back home thought about it, did more number and came back. Yesterday we sat down and negotiated a bit more, and his final offer for my vehicle was $40K....Unheard of for a 2008 BMW 135 with 54K miles on it....Its a offer that had me sitting there and thinking, i had to go ahead and proceed. This GM is digging me out my negative equity and putting me in a positive state.

Well after it was all set and done. I proceeded with signing the papers, and went home with this beauty:






The original asking price was 55K, they let it go for 45K because it sat on the lot for over two months and they were about to auction it off..

It is a 2009 C63 AMG with only 17K miles. Practically brand new.
It drives like a champ, sounds great, feels great, and handles pretty damn well for a 4 door sedan. I hate to say this, but it def is a potential M-Killer..This coming from a huge BMW fanatic.
Being that this deal was too sweet to let go, i wasn't even mad to let go of the 1er, knowing, i will be in a power house a few minutes later.

With all this said, i do have some stuff that i parted out and would like to get rid of it.

All weather front Floor Mats
Flat Black Grilles
LED Angel Eyes
AFE Air Scoops for the OEM Box
Black M license plate bracket
M Carbon Fiber Key chain
and a almost brand new RFE Factory tire for the front wheel.

I will be creating a short thread with these items for sale. But in the mean time if anyone is interested, please PM me. I will sell this for a very fair price.

I enjoyed this community here very much. Everyone was friendly and knowledgeable about questions that i had. So i am a little sad to leave this community. But i will be here once a week or so since i need to sell these items, and keep some posted on the AMG who are interested.

PS: sorry for the long ass novel i wrote here LOL

Wow! Such an unheard of trade in deal. KBB of your car is only $25,000 and thats private party already. And you also got $10,000 off your AMG.

You saved $25,000. Amazing!

Awesome deal and congrats on your C63!

Fantastic deal, as much as I love my 135i, that C63 is in another class of vehicle.

Yes sadly i loved my 135..It is a great and one that i have been searching for a long time..But as i mentioned above, when your cards are played right...you have to take the best option thrown at you...I'm more than pleased with the selection.

Yes i was in silence for hours and had to pretty much rub my eyes a few times to make sure it was reality. I do not know how the dealer managed to afford to give me a crazy offer for my BMW, but I am happy non the less. Also in this area where i live at, the 135 is pretty much a car for a search by a lot of people. I'm sure whoever buys it next will enjoy it.

WOW, you really got a sweet deal, no one can say NO for sure!!
Before I traded in my CLS to present M3, I also considered the C63 a lot, but after some calculations, I figured the BMW offered me a better deal and I also wanna change to BMW for once.
Anyway, enjoy your new ride! You will definitely love this beast!!

Perhaps they thought it was a 1m coupe and thought they were the ones getting away with murder. Just a thought, not likely but nonetheless, a thought.

For sure my friend. I am definently enjoying it very much. Not to mention the way it sounds, it pretty much pisses on all the domestic cars sound from the factory. Its great to know that i own a unique piece of machinery that was hand built...

I doubt they thought it was a M model. They pulled up all the info via VIN#...This car was about to be auctioned off. He would have taken a huge loss that route. On top of that a good friend of mine works in their parts department. He told me, they rather make a great deal with me instead of wasting a great car away at some auction.

Nice. It looks spotless. Any plans for the C63? I'd get some tints and painted reflectors.
