    I lost my job last week and with no immediate opportunities on the table right now, the toy needs to go.

    2004 BMW M3, 58k miles
    6 SPD manual
    WBSBL934X4PN57121
    Carbon Black Metallic / Black leather with M cloth centers, brushed aluminum trim
    early 04 production date-- no rod bearing recall issues.

    I am the 2nd owner (bought at 28k miles) and I am BMWCCA member.
    Never driven in snow. Rarely driven in winter at all. Garaged always.

    Dealer maintained since i've owned it.

    new alternator (common problem)
    Inspection II completed at 52k (7000 OBC-miles left till next service due- oil change)

    I believe the car has every option available for 2004 except navigation (see below for BMW-generated VIN options)

    100% stock except for:
    - Shark Injector reflash
    - Borla rear-section exhaust (Also have the stock one and will be included)
    - iPod Hookup



    The Bad:
    The car was involved in a minor accident. I was rear-ended in stop and go at about 3mph. 99% cosmetic. The 1% is on the trunk 'frame'. It needed to be pulled out. The trunk deck and rear bumper were replaced. I have detailed pics available that I took pre-fix. Frame is straight. No issues in drive-ability at all. Paint blends perfectly, and they re-cleared the entire car.

    There is a small dent on the roof by the rear window. I think an acorn or something fell on it.
    The hood/front bumper has some roadrash/rock chip marks from normal driving.

    The car also has a lien on it, thus i do not have the title in hand.
    There's some good information on this issue in this thread: Ever bought a car from buyer with a lien? (mods,good for people buying cars in here!) - NASIOC
    My loan is through Sovereign bank, and there is a branch in my town, so this may be an easy process.





    The car has been great to me, and it really pains me to see it go... but, with no job, I can't afford to keep it any more. Asking $28,999, and i'm pretty firm on that. 28,500 is about as low as i can go. If you're looking to get this for 24,000, don't even email me. it's not going to happen.

    No kiddies... no tire kickers. This is a serious car that if you don't respect will throw you into the wall before you knew what happened. I will not sell it to a 16 yr old; you'll probably die in it. No test drives if you show up in a riced out civic. Don't waste my time if you don't have the cash.


    Straight from BMW, this is what the car has:

    Well, without a job, at least you won't have to pay for all the welfare babies anymore :)

    I'm sure you'll get another quick. You're not only talented at what you do, you're very motivated and pro-active. Good luck on the hunt. The job market in Alaska is always good ;)
