    I had put this up for sale temporarily in the past, but got cold feet and pulled it down. Now I'm ready to move the car, so here it goes.

    Fwiw, I'm willing to trade for certain bikes (pristine condition) + cash. Also willing to make a killer deal on a straight sale for serious buyers!

    I have the title in hand, so a quick sale is available.
    There isn’t much of a story to this car. I’m the second owner. The first purchased the car and drove it back and forth from CO to VA, racking up the majority of miles. He optioned it the way I would have. It has xenons, heated/Power/Lumbar seats, etc, but he left out the sunroof.. THANK GOD! This gives some more head clearance inside and also drops significant weight from the highest point (huge bonus when it comes to handling) I bought the car in VA and drove it home about 5 years ago now. The car did get backed in to about 3 years ago. It was all cosmetic damage. I should have pics on my comp if need be. There was absolutely no mechanical or structural integrity that was compromised in any way (heck, I drove it home from work, where it happened). In the end, it worked out for the better, as this was when I upgraded the front bumper. This was its only incident.
    Otherwise, its been cared for by myself, JMK BMW and on the side by the head M mechanic at JMK (NJ forum members can vouch for his mechanical abilities. Just ask me for references if you want/need). Oil changes were every 4-5k miles. I just did an oil change and new wiper blades about 3 weeks ago. NJ Inspection was JUST done in June, so its good for 2 more years.
    The car took top honors at a concours style car show in Morristown NJ about a year and a half ago. (This should help give you an idea of the cosmetic condition). Off the top of my head, I think the only damage is a small (think half dime size) ding in the rear bumper. Note, you cant even see it in the recent straight-on rear shot posted below. Its really only noticeable if you're ~2ft away from it) and slight (maybe 3/4") road rash on pass rear wheel (all 3 other rims are perfect). I replaced the driver side rain gutter/finisher b/c the rear window seal was dry rotted. This was not a cheap fix. The part alone is ~250.00. Inspection II was already done, as was all SMG updates and of course the rod bearing recall. I also did a full interior color change. The vehicle came w/ grey interior, however, I purchased a black interior and did the install. I have pics of swap for interested parties. The interior is EASILY a 9.5/10! Absolutely no wear on the seat bolsters..try finding that nowadays! :)

    Can include a Cali. Car Cover for it. Also have US spec trunk and diffuser to go w/ the car.

    Look ma! No Sunroof!

    Thanks man! Fwiw, I'll open this up and offer it for 18,400. If the bike I'm looking to get sells before I get a buyer for this, I'm going to bump the price back up. This is just an effort to move the car quickly so that I can pick up another toy
