    Unicorn Hunting... Again

    Well, as most of you know, I sold my ZHP back in September and my wife and I have been a one car family since then. As much as only having the X5 is ok, its not the ideal situation. While it does scratch both the performance itch as well as the utility itch, I really need a 2nd car to own. And after much thought, I realized I'd never be content until my ideal car is in the driveway. So, the search is on! Also, as most of you know, I go out to sea for long periods, so its hard for me to watch the market and hunt for the perfect car. I'd love to enlist the help of my fellow Mafia folk, and when the time comes, I'll probably ask for some assistance with inspection and PPI if the car is not local to me.

    That being said... The Details... I've listed packages and then individual options to denote if the car has that "package"... Basically, how to verify in pics if the car is equipped as such.

    Absolute Non-negotiable MUST Have:
    2011 E90 M3 Sedan
    DCT Transmission
    Premium Package (Comfort Access)
    Cold Weather Package (Fold Down Rear Seats)
    iDrive System (Navigation)

    REALLY Want to Have: ...these items might as well be in the above list
    Competition Package (Style 359M wheels as shown)
    Technology Package (EDC, M Drive)
    Moonroof

    Unicorn Status ...all of the above plus...
    Silverstone Metallic/Silverstone leather
    Carbon Leather Trim
    Rear Sunshade/Rear Door roller sunvisors
    Individual Audio System (silver speaker trim rings)

    Color & Interior Choices, in order of Preference
    Silverstone Metallic
    Lemans Blue Metallic -or- Interlagos Blue Metallic
    Alpine White
    Melbourne Red Metallic

    Palladium Silver
    Sonoma Beige
    Black/Fox Red/Black -or- Black/Palladium/Black
    Black
    Fox Red

    Other Details
    -Looking in the $45-50k range, less is more.
    -The lower the mileage the better, but I'm hunting in the 30K range.
    -Still has some warranty left, and bonus points for one with CPO status.
    -Ideally it should be stock, no mods.

    I've seen basically everything that is currently online, but please post any cars you think may fit what I want. Also, any wild card finds should be posted too. Please keep this thread on topic as I'm heading back out to sea this weekend and my internet access will be limited. I'll be getting email updates and will check in as often as I can. Thank you so much to the best group of car enthusiasts around.

    I knoooooow!!! If that car was silverstone, I'd already own it. It's literally perfect in every other way. They actually just sold a silverstone/black car that was Dinan S2 certified... I had spoken to them about it.

    It does tick all the boxes! Just the colors aren't quite ideal

    Yeah... And to be honest, I like the red/beige more than I would an alpine white/black. So, I've kept eyes on this car for awhile now.

    Just out of curiosity, is there something the 2011 has that the 2010 doesn't? Including 2010 might expand your search possibilities.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    Well the competition package is only available in 2011 for the sedan. Also, at this point, there's no chance of getting a 2010 with any warranty left. If a perfect car came up that was a 2010, I would consider. To be honest, I really just want the newest car possible.
