2011 BMW X5 35i M-Sport Description

This auction is for my 2011 BMW X5 35i M-sport with 69k miles. I purchased this car from CarMax in May 2014, when it had 45,xxx miles on the clock. I currently live in the Chicago area, and what we did was buy this from the Gilbert CarMax in Arizona. We decided to fly out there to pick up the X5 and drive it back to Chicago, hitting the Grand Canyon and Denver on the way home. I've also driven it to St. Louis from Chicago and back, Nashville from Chicago and back, New Orleans from Chicago and back, and multiple trips to Indianapolis and Wisconsin from Chicago and back. The majority of miles I've put on the vehicle have been highway miles. I commute to work via train, which is a 5 minute walk from my house. Why am I selling? We just had a baby and the daycare I'm going to need to shell out for in a couple months is really going to eat into my free funds. I love the truck, but I don't drive it enough to justify the expenditure anymore. Having said that, CarMax financing still holds the title. The winning bid will more than cover the balance owed. Once full payment is received I will immediately pay off the loan and will overnight the title. I've sold two other BMWs and a Ducati motorcycle on eBay with the same title situation (check feedback history) without issue.
I'll start by saying I purchased a CarMax MaxCare warranty which fully covers the vehicle for 5 years from the date I purchased it from CarMax or to 100k miles, whichever comes first. This warranty is fully transferrable to the buyer. So what you'd be getting is basically a 3 year, 30,000 mile warranty with the purchase of this X5. I've had all of my maintenance work done at Wizard Werks in Chicago. It's an indy shop who works on the higher end foreign luxury brand cars, but they're really BMW people. The purchaser of this vehicle will get the all of the maintenance paperwork so there are no issues should you need to make a claim. Speaking of claims, I recently had to make one on the alternator. Again, I had the work done at Wizard Werks and they took care of the communication with the warranty company and everything was covered. This warranty allows you to bring the car to whatever shop you want to have the work done. The only catch is that there is a $300 deductible. If you bring it to a CarMax facility for the warranty work the deductible is $250. Anyone skeptical of this warranty or the ability to transfer it should do some research on it. I think the CarMax warranty is the best third party warranty out there. I can also show you the contract specifying the ability to transfer.
Next, I'll go straight into the negative. The vehicle has a lot of highway miles, and the associated chips and marks that would be expected are there. There are a couple things I point to in the pictures that should be noted in addition to that though. You'll see by the front driver side fog light some scratching. That is from the garage suddenly moving on my fiance when she was pulling in to it. The worst part was I was in the garage to witness it happen. Another ding is on the lower trim piece of the rear passenger side door. Looks like somebody dinged it with a car door. Another blemish is on the center console on the interior. The coating of the "wood" has a crack. I don't know what the issue is with this, but I had the same thing on my 5-series. Lastly, the steering wheel controls on the left side show some wearing. All of the above aren't anything major, but are definitely worth noting. There are no other known issues.
Now the positives, or at least positives in my mind. You might notice this X5 doesn't look like most of the ones you see around. I've installed (actually the work was done by Wizard Werks) H&R springs all the way around which lowered the stance 1.2 inches. In addition to that, I have 15mm spacers on the fronts and 25mm spacers on the back. It gives the truck a cleaner, more aggressive look in my opinion, without sacrificing any ride comfort. And it just gives a bit of differentiation. Let's face it, there are a lot of X5s running around. I always try to upgrade my vehicles just a bit to be different than the masses. Only if it's tasteful though. Again, this combination of springs and spacers is a very clean and tasteful upgrade. I've also had some custom coding done to the vehicle. Nothing performance related to the motor or anything like that where it could void the warranty, but just some little things. Here is the list: fog lights and angel eyes on when unlocking, side mirrors folding and unfolding when locking or unlocking via key fob, being able to close the the rear hatch via key fob, being able to roll all windows and moonroof closed via key fob, and digital speedometer on the dash. In addition to that, I have the WeatherTech floor liners (they say X-Drive) in the front and back (factory cloth mats are included as well), and I just put new Pirelli run-flat tires on in December. They have under 2k miles on them. This is a no accident vehicle. Both keys included as well as original manuals with case.
This X5 came with a few options from the factory. It's not loaded as a lot of other X5s out there are, but it's not too bad. Comes with the M-Sport Package, Premium Package, Convenience Package, Technology package, Adaptive Drive, navigation, CD player with audio aux and USB input and satellite radio, voice command, online info system, Sport leather seats with memory, parking sensors front and back, rear view camera and bird's eye 360 degree view camera, auto-dimming internal and external rear-view mirrors, front seat heaters, ambiance lighting, LED puddle lights on the external door handles, panoramic sunroof, etc.
If you have any questions, feel free to send your questions.
