Where in the hell was this when I was car shopping

Back in 2017, I was shopping for a second car after I found a job after being unemployed for 10 months and was forced to drive my E90 M3 everyday I was looking for a N/A straight six BMW coupe with a manual. I was really thinking about another 128i, albeit with a manual. I ultimately decided on a single owner E92 328i with a 6MT, mainly because I couldn’t find a decent 6MT 128i. That’s where this 128i comes in.

This 128i has the proper transmission, unlike my 128i. It’s also in a pretty excellent color combo, with mineral grey metallic over Boston beige; the same color combo as my dad’s 135is.

I find it a bit ironic the seller chose to obscure the fake front plate, but not the rear plate:

Not a big fan of the chrome window trim, but that’s a minor detraction from this otherwise very appetizing car.

For $13.5k, it’s $3.5k less than I paid for my 328i back in 2017. If anyone is looking for a naturally aspired BMW with hydraulic steering and a manual look no further!
