Not even 129k yet. The clear coat is almost completely gone. Front bumper has seen better days, rear bumper is alright, a tree did fall on it but I have a new windshield that'll be installed this week.

She needs a good cleaning too. For the price though I'd like to see a better example that runs and drives. Haha

$5k can get you quite a bit on CL. Good luck.

Thanks!

Looked at the Accord in person, it was really rough so I passed on it. Looked freaking flawless in the pictures though.

Re: WTB: Clean Vehicle, Budget 5k

Fucking awesome, bmws traction control is very nice it never let's the car get unbalanced.
Add snow tires and it's way better. I've had no issues with any of my previous rwd in the winter here. (330i, 4 cyl ranger, tahoe)

Aaron's BMW looks awesome!

I've driven a few RWD car through the winter, granted I had snow tires but they did better than FWD cars with all seasons.

another +1 for snow tires and RWD being awesome in the winter.

Both my vehicles are RWD. I have all seasons on my s10 and they do fine in the winter. Unfortunately, my open diff does not.

With that said, I'm sure the 5 series has more weight and a lsd of some sort and would perform just fine in the winter.

I have continental all seasons, but I have a set of 18" wheels with snow tires on them too that I could throw in for extra, they are practically new.

5-series BMW's are good in the winter, but only with good snow tires. All seasons don't cut it.
