Very sad, I would think it was purchased by someone with way too much money, certainly not a car enthusiast, just wanted a new toy for minute then moved on.

Certainly an expensive one with all those options and customization. Probably needs another $5-6k spent having the necessary upgrades done to make it a correct M3W for today.

Might be multiple reasons for it. I almost bought one with half that mileage two years ago, Owner drove it from the dealer from his house. Said to me it was too "epic" for him and never touched it again. To this day the car still sits in a warehouse ...

WHY??!!! if it was obvious s/he did not get on with it then get rid quickly rather than let it sit gunking up for six years.

As they used to say in the TV series ‘Firefly’… “Shiny!”

Without any of the post ’13 upgrades, and after sitting for 6 years, its current glimmer is only on the surface!



Since I dealt with this dealer, with a less than optional experience, this part of the ad caught my eye...

- "Local one-owner car, sold new by ourselves."

and

- "This one probably sold new in the mid $80's"

Ummm, you sold it so it seems like you should know it's original price; just sayin'
