He moved over to the BMW side so we were able to deal with him there when we took in the M3.


Thank you! Is that momentum bmw off 59?

I looked at the pictures in detail and the driver's door and front left fender seem to be not lining up. Any evidence of paint work conducted in that area? Thanks!

That's where we think it had a bump as noted in the carfax early in it's life. The paint gauge shows the fender to be factory depth tho. It's probable that the entire fender has been replaced.

Added some more info. Got the service record of the rod bearings being replaced, and VANOS has recently been inspected and passed. Price lowered.

VIN: WBSBL93461JR11697
6 speed manual transmission
85,000 miles
Asking $19,000


Exterior: Laguna Seca Blue (448) color
OEM 04+ LED taillights
CSL (Coupe Sport Lightweight) replica trunk
CSL replica diffuser (VIS Racing Sports)
CSL 19x8.5 & 19x9.5 wheels (OEM not replicas)
Xenon headlights
Rain sensing wipers
4 New tires Jan 2017 @ 83k miles - Continental Extreme Contact DW
Paint gauge shows a repaint on back portion of car, possible from when the aftermarket trunk was painted

Suspension: BC Race BR Coil overs
Vorshlag RTABs with limiters
CSL brakes

Drivetrain: Manual 6-Speed Getrag transmission
S54 3.2L inline 6 cylinder rated at 333hp/262ft*lb
AFE intake kit (stage 2 Pro5R)

Interior: Dove Gray Napa (N5TT) leather with piano black trim
Power seats with driver memory
Built in Garage Door opener
Harmon Kardon sound system with steering wheel controls
XTRONS Android Radio with backup camera, Bluetooth, Navigation, Wi-Fi (have original radio as well)
Leather Wrapped A/B/C Pillars
35% tint on sides and back

Condition: The Good: Exterior is in good condition with a few imperfections. Interior is in good condition as well. No tears in the leather seats but they do show a bit of fading/wear. Drivers seat appears to have been replaced as it is in very good condition. New battery. VANOS recently checked and passed ISTA+ test. This list does not include a lot of the cosmetic things we've replaced or fixed.

Condition: The Bad: A few rock chips on the hood, a couple door dings, small crease in lower rear of front passenger fender. Diffuser has some broken tabs. Side moldings had some cracks. Hood creaks when opening. Car fax shows minor accident early in life. Drivers side mirror power up/down inoperable. The passenger occupancy light gave an intermittent light. We put in a bypass so the light is off and the airbag will deploy in an accident whether the seat is occupied or not. By no means is this a bad car, just trying to be as transparent as possible.

Service Records: Unfortunately, we don't have any solid service records. We're the 6th owner, so we really only have what carfax and previous owners word.

The Service Log / Warranty book in the car has no entries, so can't comment on the Service 1 or 2 or valve adjustments, but it does seem the 1st owner took it to the dealer for maintenance. It has not had the subframe reinforcement upgrade done.

1st owner had it for ~50k miles and lots of records of "Vehicle Serviced" although it does not go into more detail.
Outside of Oil Changes & Maintenance Inspection...
8k engine/powertrain computer/module checked, evaporative emission vent purge valve replaced
22k ABS fluid changed, battery replaced, clutch replaced, drive belts replaced, seatbelt assembly replaced
25k door edge guard replaced
29k Rod bearings replace under Service Action SIB 110404
Owner 3 ~70k BMW recall - passenger front air bag
The ad that we bought it from (81k miles) stated "All service was done by previous owner less than 5,000 miles ago." "Water pump recently replaced. AC belt recently replaced. New valve cover gasket. New upper radiator hose." "DSC light is on. Exhaust hanger is missing"
The PPI we had done at Wagner BMW of Shrewsbury listed everything as "Checked and OK at this time with the following exceptions...
•DSC pressure sensor 1 - We had this fixed at Momentum BMW in Houston along with a brake flush
•Oil Leak (Visual) - We have not addressed this, but have not had to add oil, nor does it leave spots in the garage.
•Trailing Arm Bushings worn - I replaced these with Vorshlag units / limiters and had Momentum BMW do the alignment.
•Exhaust Hangers: missing 1 cross brace - This was replaced with a new one.
•Driveshaft Repair/Replacement: center support bearing poss worn, can feel play in shaft but can't see bearing with shields in the way - When we had the Momentum BMW check it (when they were doing the DCS and alignment, they stated "no found any damage in driveshaft, compare with other similar vehicle, play in shaft is normal, vehicle working by BMW spec."
•Tires - We replaced these after driving it back to Houston from Massachusetts.

We recently had a dealership pull codes and put it on the lift for evaluation (one of the guys working there wanted to buy it and asked if he could check it out).
•000007 - GM:Signal STDWA (only relevant if an anti-theft alarm is fitted)
•000021 - IHKA: Solar sensor
•S 0025 - No communication possible with Radio
•00003D - GM: Truck-lid unlocking: mechanism
•000050 - MRS: power supply
•000069 - DME Signal, engine temperature implausible
•000070 - MRS - Seat occupancy detector
•000081 - GM: DWA alarm memory: door contact, drivers door
•000085 - GM DWA alarm memory: tailgate.
Most of these are fairly obvious. No alarm, so that explains some of them. Aftermarket trunk still release with the key fob. Solar sensor we think was the rain sensing wipers, which have now have been fixed and are working. Radio was just replaced with aftermarket one with bluetooth, tho we do still have the stock one with all the bits. The Seat occupancy detector has been bypassed as stated so that explains 000050 and 000070. Don't know what the 69 is, tho I think it is for the battery temperature reading since we replaced the battery with a non-BMW battery (Autocraft Platinum AGM)

They noted the front bumper has been removed at some point (not really surprised since it's a 17 year old car) and also the oil seeping.

We just replaced the battery on May 13th. Oil change just completed at 85k using Castrol Edge API SN.

All manuals and keys included
Carfax available
Clear Blue Texas Title in hand
Located near Katy (West Houston) Texas


We bought it Dec 2016 with 81,100 miles after getting a PPI done at Wagner BMW of Shrewsbury. Drove it home from Massachusetts to Houston. Selling because it got kicked out of the garage for something better. No tire kickers or lowball offers or Nigerian princes.

Prefer not to, but am willing to ship, though will require yourself or a representative (shop or whatever) to look at the car before purchase. My 9 out of 10 may be your 7 out of 10.

Best contact is email...
or text... . If you call during the day, I most likely won't answer (due to work), so leave a message and I'll return your call when I can.

Many more pictures at http://www.fototime.com/inv/5AAE8C6416FF9D6











OP, BAT this thing. Check the price of the last LSB sold (with 50k miles).

I'm a little concerned with the right rear of the car after going through your larger album of photos. Inside the right tail lamp has what looks to be paint peeling and a generous amount of over spray can be seen inside the fuel filler door?

Carfax states 6 previous owners... Do you have records of maintenance all owners have done on vehicle previously? Has vehicle been in multiple states? curious why so many owners on this vehicle, usually you see these cars go through 1-3 owners. Videos of the car driving and running would be great! Possibly video of a walk around as well.
