FS: 2005 E90 325i (superb spec & condition)

I'm considering selling up to move to diesel... I've changed jobs and have gone from a 10 minute train ride, to a 45 minute commute in the car.

So here's the details:

-2005 325i SE 6MT but with OEM sport pack so basically sport with SE bumpers
-arctic metallic
-Originally a BMW show car, hence spec
-72k miles but in use so will go up
-FSH... main supplying dealer up to 69k then independent. All stamps up to date.
-Has been under BMW insured warranty since the original ran out. Car is still under warranty.
-MOT until end of April 2014 (passed needing only one track rod end)
-6 Months Tax (will do 12 months if I get my asking price)
-Oil change with Filter done with MOT, so I-drive is showing all green across the board.
-Just had Rear discs & pads fitted about 2 hours ago


The good bits:

-sport pack from factory(sports seats, sports suspension, sports wheels, sport interior)
-17" staggered 161 style wheels on Continental SC3 front (almost new) Bridgestone Rears.
-Dakota lemon leather interior with electric bolsters on manual sports seats
-split sliding arm rest (not as common as you'd think)
-LCI M-sport steering wheel (as new)
-ZHP M-Sport gear knob (as new)
-I-Drive
-Bluetooth with phone prep (can take standard BMW phone cradles in arm rest)
-professional navigation with 2012 DVD
-6CD changer
-hifi speaker system
-voice control
-climate control with working air con!
-active steering ( love this!)
-rear PDC
-auto lights
-auto wipers
-auto dimming rear view mirror
-auto hold take off assist brakes
-extended lighting package
-new black velour car mats (original bmw)
-regularly detailed and waxed / sealed
-interior is all but immaculate. Hard to tell from new when cleaned up.

Bad bits:

-bodywork is generally absolutely superb and most people think the car looks new, but very close inspection will reveal a few tiny age related marks. These generally go unnoticed and do not detract from the overall superb condition. However, recently, someone decided that they had forgotten how to park, and used my rear nearside corner as a parking sensor, so the bumper has a few scuffs on it. I've reduced my price to take account of the repair cost for this. I've been quoted no more than 165 to have the whole bumper removed, repaired and painted.

-?

Yep... That's the only bad news. This car was bought at one Year old, from BMW who were the first owner (ex showroom demonstration car). The second owner religiously looked after this car, with all work being done at the main dealer the car was supplied to. Both interior and exterior are in astounding condition considering this is a 2005. I am the third owner and have had the car just over a year.

The interior and exterior colour combination are really eye catching and get a lot of compliments, particularly the Dakota lemon leather interior. The sat nav system is excellent, as is the hifi speaker system, which combined with the professional head unit has great power and detail.

This car since being owned by me, has seen less than 10000 miles in a year and has been regularly cleaned. In the winter I had a full paint correction detail performed and the paintwork was sealed. Since then it's had a top up of wax. It's also had a full engine bay detail, so every bit of this car is clean.

Everything works... Not a gadget that doesn't. I've added a brand new sport steering wheel, a sport gear knob and new car mats. I also added BMW chrome exhaust finishers, which were stupid expensive, but worth it to clean up the car. I also put new number plates on to keep the car looking fresh. The car drives straight and true, superb brakes, tight steering and smooth as a dime. In use the car is super frugal for the size and unlike many 6 cylinder BMWs uses bugger all oil.

Recent oil change, pollen filter, brake fluid, as well as new front tyres and a full set of new rear brake discs and pads.

I think this is a better example than comes up all that often and as such I'm looking for 6100 (discounted to cover rear bumper and my need to change to a diesel)

It is indeed. Not in any major hurry, but still looking to change cars soon ish. New job has meant I'd prefer an auto. And quite possibly a diesel.

here you go... heres every pic i have of the car. All fairly recent. With some more recent than others. The car rarely changes condition, as I tend to keep it clean and well looked after. In fact the rear bumper looks brand new, since someone used it as a parking sensor and scraped it badly. I had it removed and fully repainted.

likely not to be around this weekend sadly. And as mentioned above, I'm not in a massive hurry, so not really in a position to get it sold massively quickly. If you can give me a week or so that'd be good.
