    I think the seller meant to price this one at $800.

    This car drives and handles great and is a beast in the snow. It has a PA antique license plate and has only been used sporadically for the past 3 year, before that it was our daily driver. It comes with spares for all the 4wd systems and an extra set of ix wheels. I know it has a lot of miles but with the diff and cylinder head rebuilt it has a lot of life left.

    Recent work done to this car:

    replaced front and rear brake pads and discs @ 190000
    replaced front differential with a rebuilt one @ 188000
    rebuilt cylinder head (new valve guides, polished seats and valves), timing belt, head gasket etc. @ 188000
    rear subframe bushings replaced @ 172000
    replaced battery 2 years ago

    not so good:

    paint could use some love
    interior needs cleaning
    passenger door hinge is loose
    rust spots on both front fenders
    rust spot underneath the battery tray
    radio antenna is stuck
    AC not working, needs to be converted to R134

    spares include:
    front axles
    transfer case and manual transmission
    original defective front diff
    4 extra ix basket wheels with snow tires

    "...some small signs of ware shown..." LOL I wonder what's the story behind why this turd has such low miles. Old Lady owner maybe?

    Thank you, kind sir. Always on the lookout! Scary thing is when this sells, I might see it around.

    that m6 is indeed a lot of car for 6k. the chances are pretty good that the rough idle is something much more than a tune up. what is the likelihood the owner didn't take it to a shop before putting it up for sale at such a low price?

    before my wife and i met, she bought a used 2007 525i with 90k miles. unfortunately, someone did the oil changes at the factory recommended 15k interval. the insides were coked up pretty good and the vanos oil passages were clogged. that car was a nightmare from a maintenance perspective. the only way to fix that problem is to pull the head off.

    If I had $6000 to burn I'd consider actually burning that car.
