2011 BMW 328i xDrive ***8211; E92 Coupe
Crimson Red with cream beige Dakota leather
6-speed manual with only 63k miles.

This car is in beautiful shape and lots of fun to drive with the 6 speed manual ***8211; the perfect AWD sports car - good in the rain and snow. This is one of the last straight six cylinder years. The 328i is non-turbo, so you avoid those repair issues.

I have had this car for a year and it has been a blast, but I must now move on - need more room for kids and dog. The previous owners maintained it well ***8211; the car was a CPO ***8211; and obviously kept it in a garage (as did I) ***8211; part of the reason I bought it. The airbag, PVC valve heater, and blower motor recalls have all been performed. There is no aftermarket equipment installed. The shifting is very smooth and consistent of BMW quality. Every gear notches in perfectly.

The interior is in very good shape with only a little wear on the driver***8217;s side bolster. The paintwork is good with few chips, no dents. Two key fobs ***8211; one looks brand new.

***8226; Sport Package, including 10-way power heated seats (excellent lumbar)
***8226; Premium Package
***8226; Value Package
***8226; All wheel drive
***8226; Navigation system with real time traffic info
***8226; IDrive
***8226; HD Radio includes Hard Drive to store music
***8226; Xenon Adaptive Headlights (turn with the car) and bright LED Halos (not the older yellow ones), clear lenses ***8211; these lights are awesome
***8226; Harman Kardon surround sound
***8226; Voice command
***8226; Bluetooth
***8226; Sunroof
***8226; Rear Seats folds down for Trunk Access
***8226; Automatic Climate Control with separate left/right temperature settings
***8226; Clean title in hand
***8226; Clean Carfax
***8226; E60 spare tire and E46 jack (car does not come with spare ***8211; these will work as spare)

Recent maintenance (last 1000 miles):
***8226; New tires (Continental Pure Sport LS)
***8226; Brake fluid flush
***8226; BMW shop Inspection
***8226; Synthetic Oil and oil filter change
***8226; Air filter change
***8226; Cabin filter change
***8226; Wiper blades
***8226; New rubber jack points
***8226; New BWM spark plugs
***8226; New coil #6

Battery replaced at 50k

Car checked out great at the recent inspection, but my BMW mechanic said the eccentric shaft sensor needs to be replaced in the near future, so I have priced the car accordingly. A local reputable BMW shop, Milwaukee Motorwerks, quoted the repair at about $1000, and it looks like parts are about $300 from ECS Tuning if you do the work yourself.

eccentric shaft sensor kit: $287 (gaskets, sensor)
