2009 e90 335i  [6.40]
FS: 2008 535 XiT Auto SOLD

SOLD

I am selling this wagon since I no longer need it for work. The wagon was a great car for hauling tools, furniture and anything else we needed for renovating homes. My gf didnít want a truck in the driveway so I picked this car up in San Diego a couple of years ago. Current mileage is 109,950 ( I added about 16,000 miles since purchased) and will increase but I try to ride my motorcycle as much as I can. My plan is to buy a 335 is or regular coupe. I am a gluten for punishment as I love working on the N54s.

The good - car runs great. I fixed almost everything necessary once I brought it back home to AZ. Here is a list of repairs and parts installed:

- tires and wheels (cheap Voxx but they look good and did the job). The dealer I bought the car from installed different tires and wheels on all four corners. I opted for Michelin all -year since the max weight allowed was higher than the sport tires.
- alternator
- serpentine belt and tensioner
- oil filter housing gasket
- motor mounts
- crank case vent hose
- control arms
- under shield reinforcement plate
- water pump and thermostat
- turbo boost solenoid
- gear fluid
- oil pan gasket and cooler gasket
- coil packs
- brake pads front and rear
- battery

The ok -
- there is clear coat wear on the roof
- the trim piece above the windshield needs to be replaced. I havenít bought one yet and I believe they are $60 from realoem.
- typical dings and scratches for a 2008 but looks good
- the windshield washer tube needs to be replaced. I bought a new one but havenít installed yet.
- the sway bar end links will need to be replaced in the future. They are still functional but the last time I changed the oil. I noticed both boots were cracked.
- I change the oil every 5,000 miles and need to add one to two quarts before my next oil change. ( I recently noticed a slight leak in the oil cooler lines, so I will need to replace these).
- the pistons that hold the trunk open literally just failed. I havenít bought new ones.
- the latch and window in the back work. Sometimes you just need to tight the latch if the window pops open. I know a lot of these fail on these wagons.

Fault codes -
- rear brakes needs to be replaced. I have a wear pad sensor but the caliper someone installed didnít have a notch. Thus, the code even after I replaced the pads in June. I will remove the rear wheel and check again.
- tpms fault code. The dealer I bought the car from installed bad sensors or incompatible ones. I could not code them nor could Discount tire. No big deal since I ride motorcycles I check the tire pressure often. I also have special emergency screws plugs to temporarily patch tires along with a portable air compressor.

The car has and came with the following options -
- sport seats
- heated seats front and back
- adaptive headlights
- leatherette seats ( I will take pics once I empty the tools out of the car)
You can probably assume it has the sport and winter package.

Let me know. I am in no hurry to sell the car but I really donít need a wagon anymore. I honestly would be happier with a 335 coupe though.

No low balls please. I get enough of those through TRED, but will reduce the price according to what I have not repaired yet. Itís negotiable. This is probably the best running 535 wagon in the US thatís for sale. There are probably about 5 or 6 total on cars.com from $11k to $15K. They all have similar mileage or higher so itís a safe assumption that they need a lot of repairs if a slimy dealer is selling them.

Thank you and if you have a high mileage Ď335 isí or coupe we can swap plus $.

New year bump.

Mileage update. We used the wagon for a family trip to Pine Top bc our X6 has only summer tires. ��

Current mileage 110,100

Bump…interior pics added. I also found the oil leak and will be replacing the oil cooler lines. I am certain the driver side seat module is the problem regarding the seat issue. I just have to figure out how to remove or lift the driver’s seat to install the replacement module. The seat is currently in the back position so the bolts are not easily accessible.
