Wow! That's quite the move. Good luck with all that!

I'm BMW free for the moment, but as I've mentioned many times, I'm looking at a CPO 5er in the next year or so.

Thanks! I already have multiple perspective buyers for the Z3 and it could be gone by next weekend. It would probably be sooner, but we have out of state family coming in this weekend so I will not have the time to deal with showing it.

I actually looked for the z3 ad yesterday curiously interested and saw it was taken down. If the local buyer falls through, please repost

Local party on the Z3 is on vacation this week and currently owns nine BMWs so uncertain if he will commit. My BMW CA and family friend knows him as he has sold him several BMWs, most recently a 2023 X5. I was asking $12,300 obo on FB Marketplace via a friend whom accidentally deleted the ad. Mudgeon price = $11k. Mechanically it is nearly perfect. It could use front brakes, but not immediately as it has not hit the wear sensor yet. The front and rear bumper covers could use some refurbishing from the second owners ability to apparently brush things. The seat bushings need to be replaced which is an extremely common issue on Z3s. The body is in great shape and all factory VIN tags/stickers are present. I have new Whalen bushings for DIY. If anyone is truly interested in it send me a PM and we can discuss the details as to what I have had performed to it mechanically over the past nine years.

Congrats. I miss the way BMWs used to make me feel but that magic is long gone from their lineup.

With very mixed emotions the X5 will be departing Monday. After 74 months of ownership I gave its final bath yesterday morning. It will be staying in the Southeast.

That X5 is (IMHO) that last of the good looking X5s. I find the new ones to be either bland (next gen after this) or too fussy (current state).

Agreed and this mostly why I am second guessing selling. I have never desired a G05 X5, even with the LCI. If I had I would have ordered one long ago.
