It's wagon time yet again. This time it's a 3-Series wagon of 2004 vintage.

This 2004 BMW 325 XiT wagon has an automatic transmission and is a daily driver, so the mileage is over 191,000 and rising.

It has a Sand Leather interior, moonroof, power front seats with memory, heated front seats, fog lamps, rain sensor, and CD player.

The seller has apparently replaced many parts and has replacements on hand for others, and he or she notes that the car has a vibration at 30 and 60 mph and some cosmetic damage and rust.

The ask on this car is $5,000 and you can view it here.

Tim Healey grew up around the auto-parts business and has always had a love for cars — his parents joke his first word was “‘Vette”. Despite this, he wanted to pursue a career in sports writing but he ended up falling semi-accidentally into the automotive-journalism industry, first at Consumer Guide Automotive and later at He also worked as an industry analyst at Mintel Group and freelanced for, CarFax,, High Gear Media, Torque News,,, among others, and of course Vertical Scope sites such as,, and He’s an urbanite and as such, doesn’t need a daily driver, but if he had one, it would be compact, sporty, and have a manual transmission.

    It looks like it's had a OK amount of maintenance done, though no mention of a LOT of common this-era BMW things. I'd say this is a sub-3K car, at least in my area. That said, having owned a pretty decontented E46 wagon I ordered new and owned for 14yrs and 130k miles, compared to more modern BMW fare, they're not too bad to keep going at all.

    I owned this car, but with a manual trans and RWD. The 2.5L engine was lovely, but did not have enough power to pull AWD and a slushbox.

    One of only a few cars that I still miss.

      Nice car, pleasant car, but not all that exciting in the trim depicted here.

  • Theflyersfan I guess I should have kept my first ever car which was also a 1987 Nissan. Probably could have sold it for $50,000 by now if I was living in this fantasy world where used up 37 year old Nissans sell for the same price as a new Versa. I wish a link was here so all of us can check out this treasure among junk 200SX. The only way this car is even remotely worth that kind of money is if there are illicit substances hidden somewhere in the frame that, as part of the sale, you have to drive across the border and "make a delivery." Otherwise, get that thing off of my lawn.
