The car has around 77000 miles and is in Montego Blue metallic with Dakota black leather. Cold Weather Package and Premium Package. I purchased this car from Herb Chambers BMW Boston in Allston in August 2012 with 50000 miles.
I have done quite a lot as far as cosmetics go. these include :

Full LCI conversion (Hood, M3 rep bumper, and taillights)
Rear M sport bumper with gloss black painted diffuser
H&R Sports springs and Bilstein sports shocks (installed 8k ago)
Muffler delete (I have original exhaust)
Pre-LCI OEM euro style xenon headlights, which I purchased from a forum member who had these headlights customized by Lux Angel Eyes.
35% tint.

An abundance of codes : Headlight corner delete, Angel eyes as DRL, Digital speedometer, Folding mirrors and raise windows upon lock and raise windows while doors are open.

Interior : Msport steering wheel (may put back to original) Driver sport seat.
Car has factory aluminum trim.

I recently replaced the Valve cover gasket,Spark plugs, Coils and Serpentine Belt, and I think a o2 sensor (will re-edit if different) new oil change. all done within 3k ago.

My car has been maintained by Rayteam Automotive in Waltham. These guys are my go to guys when it comes to German mechanics in Boston. Definitely check them out if you are in need of a Professional and honest German mechanic.
Despite the aggressive look, my car has been babied, always warmed up if I were to go above 4.5RPM which I rarely do. Hardly engage DS or manual mode. I try and avoid short commutes once I start the car up cold, and tend to drive a extra mile or two in order to warm the car up. Since my ownership at 50k I changed the oil every 3-5k, Alignment minimum twice a year. No performance mods unless you wanna call a muffler delete one.. The car has been parked in a indoor garage 75% of my ownership. the car has been safely parked during the terrible snowstorm from this winter.

As for tires none of the ones in the photos will be for sale, I probably will install a stock 17 set up.
Im looking to get $15k or Best offer. Please dont hesitate to shoot a offer!
PM for more details!

thanks !!
I had an E39 540i 6Spd M-Sport.... you sure you know what you're getting into? My experience was nothing short of awful... ive owned 1 E30,2 E36's,1 E39, 2 E46s, and 3 E9x's... that E39 was a complete nightmare, and despite that nice V8 and beautiful classic BMW styling... it was far slower than you'd expect... high 14's at NED, and reliability was a nightmare. Paid 8500 bucks for it with clean title, 2 owners, sub 100K miles maybe 5 years ago, and had problems since day one. Maybe its isolated and bad luck, but i'd be hard pressed to ever desire another 5 series. IMHO, the 5s are like Audis- you only ever buy them new. The old saying "there's nothing more expensive than a cheap Mercedes" comes to mind.

ps--- your e90 is one of the cleanest and tasteful ones i've seen. thats a gem. I'll trade you a white 07 328Xi with 30K on the odo if you want another e90!

Thank you for your insight as well as the compliment!! I decided not to get a 540i due to the high mileage. 130k for the similar price u paid and the dealer gave me a really lowball price since my car is "lowered" lol. I thought the 540i was one of the more reliable cars BMW produced. It may possibly have been bad luck.. and honestly I felt like the 540i was much faster compared to the W211 E500 that I used to have back in Japan.

I love my car too much Im way too attached, thank you for the offer but I'm going to have to pass. If you want your E90 to look similar to mine talk to Freon480 who commented on this thread! He does great work and does LCI conversions all the time!!
