  • FS: 2009 BMW 125i - 3.0/LSD/Manual

    Having really enjoyed this fantastic little rocket over the last year and a bit, my work commute is about to substantially increase so the difficult decision has been made to sell this car for a more suitable daily driver.

    I bought the car from Piers of this parish, please see previous ad link below. It still has the same spec (Quaife LSD, Supersprint exhaust, big brakes, shortened final drive, etc) but is now on Uniroyal Rainsport tyres. http://www.backroads.ie/forum/car-re...upe-3-0-manual

    Since I bought the car in March 2021, I drove it for a little while before biting the bullet, putting a huge parts order in and dropping it to Dave Gormley in Wexford. He removed the subframe, fuel tank and basically stripped, powdercoated and reconditioned everything from the gearbox back! He spent a total of 55hrs on it!

    New parts include:

    BMW E46 M3 gearbox mounts
    E9x M3 rear control arms
    E9x M3 subframe bushes
    Front and rear drop links - Lemforder
    Rear arms and bushes - Lemforder
    All 3 diff mounts - Lemforder
    All new rear ball joints - as per M3 - Lemforder
    All new brake hoses - Brembo
    New hard brake lines - BMW
    New rear wheel bearings - SKF
    New rear abs rings
    New brake dust shields
    Subframe bolts - BMW
    2 gearbox seals - BMW
    Various nuts and bolts

    Its currently at 138k KMS and has a full service history.

    In addition to the above I’ve done the following regular servicing:

    28/04/2021 @ 124311km
    Shell Helix Ultra 5W40 Oil - LL01
    Mann Oil Filter
    Bosch Platinum Spark Plugs x6
    Mahle Charcoal Pollen Filter
    TRW - Front antiroll bar links
    Liqui Moly Injector Cleaner

    22/01/2022 @ 133640km
    Manual 5W40 Oil - LL01
    Mahle Oil Filter
    Mahle Air Filter

    Other bits in my ownership:
    New LCI rear lights
    New windscreen
    Pressed metal plates
    2 new brake calipers
    A bluetooth dongle that allows music streaming via the AUX input
    BMW roof bars - new

    NCT - 02/2023
    Tax - expired 05/2022

    I know I’ll look back and kick myself for letting this go as its the last straight six NA petrol BMW in a coupe body with manual gearbox and a limited slip diff.


    Car available for viewing in Balbriggan.
