6-Speed Unicorn: 2008 BMW 535xi Wagon

This next car comes as a tip from INeedMoreHossa who writes: The above is one of roughly 600 e61’s imported to North America and the last of the 5 series wagons to come to North America. I would buy that blindly, but I already did that with a 2007 530xi. Find this 2008 BMW 535xi Wagon offered for $10,000 in Concord, CA via craigslist.
