The world is changing. It is going electric. I’m not saying that it is a bad thing, because certainly cleaner airs and happy atmosphere is important, but our years of driving around in turbocharged 300+ horsepower sport sedans with manual gearboxes and fun handling is nearing the end. Soon the fun analog stuff we’ve become accustomed to will be driven out of our price range by wealthy collectors or recycled into battery containment pods. The wheat will be sorted from the chaff. But don’t fret. Instead, keep driving and maintaining the good stuff while you can and prepare for the “nightmare buffet of artificially flavored, hyperpalatable, yet ultimately bare-marginally satisfying, pseudoabundance”** that is coming. Find this 2010 BMW 335i M-Sport offered for $16,500 in Santa Clara, CA via craigslist.
From the seller:
2010 bmw 335i
paint color: grey
title status: clean
Up for sale is my 2010 BMW 335i M-Sport Sedan w/ 6 speed manual transmission. The car is stock except for ST XTA coilovers (stock M-Sport suspension will be included), M-Performance short shift kit, and BMW black kidney grills.
I’ve owned the car since it had ~70k miles and the majority of miles I’ve put on the car are freeway commute miles. The paint is in great condition as well as the interior. Most of the major maintenance items have been taken care of including:
index 12 injectors
valve cover gasket ~10k miles ago
High pressure fuel pump
In the last year, following a rear wheel bearing replacement, I had a wheel sensor code pop up triggering some lights on the dash. I have not addressed this since it has not affected drivability but am willing to factor the repair into the sale price.
