NOTE: the above-listed vehicle is USED,, so she is subject to wear and tear although she has been taken care of consistently based on my BEST gained mechanical knowledge of BMWs since I was 24 when I purchased my first BMW 2002 ti. The car was 22 years old at that time !!!! Since then, I fell in LOVE with this amazing, tremendous, and outstanding  driving machine, which is NOT manufactured anymore with the 1970s QUALITY .
