I hate to do it, but I'm buying a house and need to slash some expenses. Vehicle is in excellent condition inside and out. Only issues: driver's seat calibration needed (I've tried the full forward technique several times), and above average driver side left bolster wear.

I purchased this car with 80,000 miles in January 2013 and planned on keeping it for at least 300,000 miles. However, I am in the process of buying a house and I need to pare down my expenses. Trust me when I say I HATE to sell this car. I love driving it and she is just hitting her prime. I average 27-28MPG! Car has been fully serviced by BMW dealer and I have full dealer records to 100,000 miles. (Previous owner had the 5YR/100,000 mile BMW Maintenance Plan, which I know is inadequate for us maintenance-centric folks, but it is what it is). At 102,630 miles (9/5/2014) I did my own oil, oil filter, and air filter change, and filled the DEF with BMW OE fluids and filters (Mahle, Castrol, BMW). Vehicle has 103,400 miles on it now. I have all Owner's Manuals, the original sticker, and two keys. Car needs absolutely nothing. Set of Dunlop WinterSport 3D snow tires used one season included! I'm a long time BMW CCA member and enthusiast and I take care of my cars. PRICE IS NEGOTIABLE! Email me for more pics. Shortonvt@yahoo.com

Just FIY, often time when I wash the car and move the seat back and forth to vacuum, I get the seat calibration message. I can never reset it using the forward-backward process specified in the owner's manual. However I have DIS (the older software that BMW used in the shop) and there is one click reset function in there (there's actually a code stored in the seat control module and to resolve the code the routine does a reset; it is exactly the same all forward all backward process). This always solves it.

I thought I'd share for a few reasons (1) the potential buyer could feel more comfortable knowing that likely is nothing wrong with it and (2) as long time BMW CCA member you may ask another member that has access to DIS or ISTA to reset it for you or (3) depending on your relationship with the local dealer they may do it as goodwill gesture since it takes 30 seconds.

Thanks! I will look into DIS to solve the seat issue. And to answer your ATF question ard, no. It was on the list of to do's then the house came into play.... As nervous as I was of opening that Pandora's Box since it shifts and acts perfectly.

Maybe edit the original post to reflect that all service has not been done. You've fallen into the 100k 'trap'...they push it to 100k, and THEN say "Ooooh, too risky now"

Just because you personally deem it necessary? And what if we get a member here who's still into 3k oil changes? Or so-called "old school schedule"? Or some other "me Dad always said..." religion?

Imho OP has it correct if he followed BMW schedule; everything else is a matter of beliefs.

Actually I believe BWMs published interval for ATF is 100k

If I am in error I'll edit my comments...
