Purchased: Monday May 13, 2013

Well, i've honestly been working on getting this deal done since February 27, 2013 when I first saw this car in person. I had posted a WTB ad on M3Post in January and soon received a PM from a member, isugoo (Tommy) regarding his beautiful AW E90 M3. The best part about his PM was that he was local (within 10 minutes from me) and his car matched every single thing in my WTB ad that I desired. From the moment I saw this car, I knew I had to have it as this kind of car would be a diamond in the rough! Unfortunately the only difficulty would be that I still needed to sell my E46 M3... Luckily Tommy was willing to wait patiently for me to sell, as he also was looking for his replacement vehicle (X5M) and his E90 wasn’t even listed for sale. I lucked out!

Well, I sold my E46 M3 on Tuesday April 30th to someone in L.A. and immediately told Tommy I was ready to buy… long story short, he still hadn’t found a replacement car, so I began to help him with his search. I found him a pristine 2011 X5M somewhat locally, and he was able to pick it up yesterday! I got the call that we were all set to complete the transaction today, Monday May 13, 2013 and immediately started preparing.

Picked up the car this morning at 11AM after finishing up all the paperwork.
I am beyond pleased with the purchase, and I think you will all enjoy it as well

Nice Pickup! Honored to be the first to post in your journal

Does this thing even need anything? Looks like he set it up very well.

haha. Honestly, it doesn't NEED anything. Of course, I will likely change around a few things to make it "mine" though!
