2012 E91 manual wagon

Possibly attractive for someone here...Geographically undesirable for me...

Edit: The 2006 Imola M3 in Maryland is nice, too. But pricey:

Looks like my dealer has an off-lease 2017 330xi wagon. But it's a fairly pricey stripper: https://www.nalleybmw.com/certified/...f5d4d79022.htm

I've dealt with that NJ guy a few times over the years (decades?). He is definitely into bmw's and also somewhat of a flipper. He had a not-great e39 530i for sale that I passed on. He was an early-20's kiddo then. Then we did some business on some racks. Not exactly a plus, but not a dealbreaker either. I'd approach with caution.

I just tried to look up my old wagon. 2002 325xiT 5 speed, no sunroof. I sold it to Carmax for $6k (I think) in 2011 with 100,xxx miles. A/C was out. CEL was on and there were a couple other things wrong that I can't remember. Plus, it had some good old rust going passenger rear quarter, every panel was dinged, most had good dents, and tons of scratches everywhere.

Googling the VIN only showed me that someone else put it up for sale in 2015 asking $9,000 with about 150 miles more than what I sold it with.

If that car was a $9k car in 2015, the BaT car is a $15k car today. Easy.

Agreed. That car is lovely.

Edit: A local dealer here has an E91 for sale for the same $14k. Five owners and two accidents. Um, NO.

Nothing pops up for mine

Only options on it was metallic paint, xenon's, and sport package. The old days when you could buy a stripper bmw
