Have maintenance records
Located in Minnesota(car has not seen a winter)

Extremely clean example overall - one small door ding and two spots on the rear bumper were touched up while in the care of the previous owner(by hand, not resprayed). Rear bumper looks to have been repainted(its been wet sanded), color match is correct as both bumpers and side skirts are all very slightly more green due to flex additive. The rest of the car looks perfect and has the correct amount of “orange peel” that BMW is known for, no overspray found between any panels nor signs of removal. All VIN stickers are in place, as well as all window branding. Very few chips in the paint, and no noticeable deep scratches. Paint has been maintained, corrected, and coated with Gtechniq CSL ceramic coating. This is a Minnesota car but has never seen winter and not much rain, underbody is very clean with all the original spray coating intact. No cracks in the rear subframe, but always something to consider getting done if you plan on driving the car spiritedly. VANOS bulletproof was just completed along with valve adjustment - its a very quiet S54 at the moment!

Car was originally SMG, but I also just completed the manual swap so everything related to shifting the car is new. Most people call this a manual transmission swap, but really its just a shift linkage swap. SMG shifter comes out and manual shifter and pedal goes in, so the transmission is completely original. Clutch was like new so I did not change it, better to keep the unit that’s broken in the flywheel.

Recent Maintenance(last 100 miles):

-Full VANOS bulletproof using Biesan parts
-Valve adjustment
-Valve cover gasket(BMW)
-Engine air filter (Mahle)
-Cabin Air Filter (Activated Charcoal version)
-Spark plugs(NGK)
-Coil packs (all using Bosch)
-ICV cleaned
-Brake fluid flush(BMW fluid)
-Oil change (Castrol)
-Transmission fluid change(BMW Fluid)
-Rear differential fluid change(BMW Fluid)
-Front Control arm Bushes (Lemforder)
-Accessory and AC belts (Gates)
-Both headlight bulbs
-Sway bar bushings lubricated
-GM5 Module repaired with new relays(Door lock controller)

Modifications:
-Autosolutions 0% Short Shift Kit (same height as oem)
-Coby wrapped steering wheel

Look for the car on BaT in the coming weeks
