First of all, let me apologize a head of time for the number of pictures that you will see here.
Up for sale is my 2010 BMW 135i with only 31,000 miles. This car was a special order and directly shipped from Germany to me. The car was picked up on Nov 2009. I ordered this car because I was looking for a white 135i with black interior which only has M sport package, heated seat, sunroof, and that's it. There's no single one that was for sale in the US, that's why I ordered it. It is equipped with M sport package, which means it has 18" 10-spoke M sport wheels w/ performance tires, M sport seats, M sport steering wheel, and M sport shift knob. It also has heated seat, automatic dual climate control, cruise control, xenon adaptive headlights w/ auto leveling, headlight washers, sunroof, etc.
This BMW is mainly my weekend car, as I have a Mazda 2 for daily commuting. The vehicle spent most of its life on the highway, and occasional city driving. This car has never been track driven. I am the only owner. The car has always been serviced at the dealership when needed, and all service records are automatically saved inside the key fob. The car has been operated in a very gentle manner because it's still running on the original brake pad and it's still in decent life on them. When the brake pads and rotors are ready to be replaced, BMW $0 maintenance program will replace them for absolutely free of charge. This information can be retrieve through BMW service record as proof. Clutch is still in excellent condition. I have been driving stick shift for 10 years and I always double de-clutch and rev-match to preserve the clutch and the gear box. Come try it yourself and you will see. This car has never been in any accident or has had any cosmetic repairs. Both warranty and the $0 maintenance program are still good until Nov, 2013.
This is an insanely great car which is nice and fun to drive. It makes me kind of sad to put it up for sale but sometimes you gotta let go of the things you love.
Also this car is very photogenic for a stock car and I absolutely loved taking photos of it. Car has never seen any modifications. Only BMW scheduled maintenance.
Here are some recent pictures taken on Sept 23rd 2012.
The following photos were shot JPEG and no post processing was done.
Seats are fully power adjust with memory, and they are extremely well-kept, no leather-winkle or wear whatsoever!!
The M sport seats are equipped with electrically-adjustable side bolster support, which is a must-have!!
You wont believe this interior is already 3 years old, it looks totally brand new.
Driver side carpet is still in great shape
I am confident to tell you that the rear seats have been occupied less than 10 times in these 3 years, seats are in brand new condition.
M sport steering wheel, the same as E90/92 M3 steering wheel.
Please note that the white line on the headliner is NOT a mark or scratch, it's just a light reflection from outside.
It's only 30,877 miles to be exact
It is commonly known that the brushed aluminum rim is easily scratch, but this one is free of scratch.
The only flaw of the interior is this little scratch done by my friend carelessly getting into the rear seat. The next picture is a close up of this scratch. It's about one inch long.
The trunk is rarely used
Now of course the car is not perfect and it does have some flaws on the body from parking in public parking lots. There's a couple dents, one on each side of the rear quarter panel and a scratch on the driver side door from people who have no respect for other people's car. You can not tell the dents are there unless you're on top of them and from a foot or two away, you can not even see them.
The first dent is on the left rear quarter panel near the wheel. It is about 1.5 - 2 inch long but it's very minor. Without a very big contrast on light reflection you won't be able to notice it.
The second dent is on the right rear quarter panel. It is about half an inch.
Both dents can be easily removed by dent removal technician, because they didn't hurt the paint.
There's a scratch on the driver side door that is about less than one inch long, also got it from public parking.
Front right wheel and rear right wheel both have a minor scrub on the edge of the wheel as shown below.
And finally there are a few scratches on the rear bumper. And guess what? I got them from leaving my car at parallel parking spot. Surprise~
I have captured the largest scratch on the rear bumper which is about half an inch long.
The other few scratches are minimal.
So here are ALL the flaws that I know of. I tried my best to show you everything that may concern you.
Car is located in the Blacksburg, VA area, Which is about 4 hours from Fairfax, VA. If you're in the Blacksburg/Christiansburg/Roanoke area, it can be arranged to have the car driven out there any day to meet you depending on the circumstances. (But for SERIOUS INQUIRES ONLY, please don't waste my time if you just want to just kick the tires and go for a joy ride. That's what dealerships and test drives are for)
Please come check out this car as I can guarantee you that you will not be disappointed.
