Upgraded to a new 5 series today so Jan's daily driver is for sale. This has been a reliable and inexpensive car to own (even though it's a BMW) over the years. That being said it is 100% good to go except for a small valve cover leak that sometimes smells up the cabin in the winter. I bought all of the parts Bimmerworld says are required to repair it (dealer says 2.5 standard labor hours but that's for a pro so plan on 7) and the parts come with it. Fine to drive but in the long run...…. needs fixing.

Details/options:
* gray leather
* gray color is called sparkling graphite metallic that was an option
* moonroof but that is probably standard
* 3L inline 6 with around 185 hp as I recall. Adequate but certainly not fast
* cold weather package including heated front seats, interior ski pass through but also good long stuff, heated mirrors
* rear seat fold down for carrying cargo
* sport package (not an M car) including 17" sport wheels and leather steering wheel, sport seats (comfy yet supportive)
* AWD, auto trans, traction control, stability control this car is a MACHINE in snow. NEVER ever stuck it
*dark burl walnut trim
* I am the only owner since new
* never tracked......Honest!
*142 k miles, over 50% highway
* no rust anywhere…..straight body
* 100% Mobil 1 from day 1
New or nearly new parts
* Michelin Primacy all weather tires..........the best particularly in the winter
*battery- BMW factory unit so don't ask what it cost me due to more laziness
*spark plugs at 120k
*RF wheel bearing
*brake pads
*all campaigns and TSB's completed
*2 rear Bilstein shocks
* all the standard nice stuff you'd expect from BMW.
* Suprisingly decent but not superb cupholders


Because of simple laziness on my part this could be a good second car or college student car because of its awesome cold weather safety and performance...….if you are willing to invest a Saturday with the oil leak. Luckily my daughter is off the payroll now but back in the day when she wasn't she nearly ran her bottom feeder chevy cavalier out of oil 2x while in college. Oil capacity on this car is 6.9 qts.....it is 3.5 on my new Honda Fit. But that is the way BMW does things. $4000 with all the parts to fix the leak Located in the St. Louis, MO area.
