6-Speed Touring: 2008 BMW 328i Wagon E91

Yeah…I know.  You could get an E46 M3 with fewer digits flipped on the odo, and you could get a high mileage STI or Legacy GT Wagon for the same pile of dough…but this car calls to the people who remember when BMW built the best luxury/sport wagons with manual gearboxes on the planet.  Those days are LONG gone…and the manual gearbox has become a punchline and an anti-theft device…BUT if I had to pick ONE car to daily drive this car every single day of my driving life…it’d look a lot like this 2008 BMW 328i E91 wagon offered for $12,500 in Richmond, VA via craigslist. Tip from Jeff.

Paint is not perfect with some sap etching and few dings on the roof/hood. No concourse material, but looks great from 5 ft away. I had plans to do a LCI front end swap, so didn’t worry too much about minor dings and scratches. Interior is pretty much perfect with the exception of couple small tears on the driver’s seat. No rust, no accidents. 

Recent comprehensive inspection by Richmond BMW and Bimmer Rescue revealed the car is in perfect health. Recommended to replace eventually, but not urgent: Valve Cover Gasket, Oil Filter Housing Gasket, Oil Pan Gasket. Minor seeping – experienced no changes in oil level in between oil changes (5,000 miles, 6 mo.). 

No test drives w/o cash in hand.
