This is a unique opportunity to own an interesting and versatile car, and I've been trying to figure out how to make it work in my plans...but so far, haven't.
Good point...

It actually gets a real 27mpg on the highway, which gives it great range, 500mi almost.

A neighbor (or more like the landlord of a neighbor, I see him so little) sold an e24 m6 or 635CSi, not sure which, on BaT. He said it was sooo much trouble. I'm waiting for an easier sale and then I'll go through with it. This is not a super cream puff, not close to the condition of my LSB e46 m3.

2011 BMW 535i - 56k miles - 6-speed manual

I have fond memories of my f10 and yours is pretty much the best version of an f10. Kind of tempted but my wife wonít drive stick. Theyíre still great looking sedans imo.

One thing I donít remember is that extra cup holder in the center console. Was the a stick only thing? Mine had a small covered change tray there

I don't know this market at all but that seems like a steal to me. Someone here should buy it!

I wouldn't lower the price. This car is too rare. Unless you're in a hurry, leave it high and wait. A buyer will come along.

It's a stick thing. That's the only cupholder up front!!

Well, it's not the *best* version. it's not an m-sport, so it doesn't have the appearance package bumpers.

That's what I'm going to do. It doesn't book very high, cargurus suggest much lower, but we all know those values are all over the place. I'll also throw in a TON of stuff at the asking price.

Thank you!
Maybe it is just my old eyes, or display, but I can't see the number in the picture you posted with the tread depth. Looks like the depth tool display caught a reflection. (trying to help, not nitpick)

Car looks great, wish I had a need, but I might need surgery on my left toe very soon. Clutch would be an issue through rehab

GLWS!

Not yet. Why? If you are curious about the clutch, it's pretty good.
