2003 BMW 330xi with 106,000 miles. The car includes every service record from the day it was sold in 2003. Enthusiast owned and METICULOUSLY maintained. Never tracked or abused. Owned/driven in CA only. This vehicle is an extremely rare special order through BMW Individual in original Dakar Yellow II - a traditional M color. Selling since there is an E90 on the way, and I won't let go of the 840Ci.
It may be the only Yellow 330Xi in North America. In addition to it's rarity, it has an ESS twin-screw supercharger that generates 6.5psi of boost, making it a very FAST 330Xi. $13,950 (Irvine, CA)

ESS 330 TS1 6.5PSI Supercharger System: (Information taken from esstuning.com)
"The ESS 330 M54 TS1 series system is equipped with a Lysholm Twin Screw supercharger which has several advantages over the centrifugal compressors used in earlier ESS M52TU/M54 systems. It creates a higher boost-pressure at lower engine rpm, thus significantly increasing bottom and mid range torque. Lag time during shifts and on-off throttling are reduced to a minimum and the throttle response is incredible. The twin screw principle is also highly energy efficient, which contributes to the extreme power and torque output of the ESS TS Series systems. The system also utilizes a throttle body type butterfly air bypass valve to reduce SC parasitic drag and increase fuel economy during cruising conditions. The entire ESS TS system consumes less than 2hp during cruising and it is very energy and heat efficient.
The redesigned ESS MS43/45 engine control software is perfectly calibrated for the TS supercharged engine providing optimum ignition timing under all conditions, recalibrated EGas for quicker throttle response, recalibrated VANOS control and perfectly optimized fuel delivery supplied by the 6 larger Bosch fuel injectors included with the kit. The software also features a 6800RPM rev limit and removed top speed governor."

"ESS TS Series superchargers with it's Lysholm supercharger technology and CAD designed intake runners creates boost the instant the throttle is touched usually reaching full boost by ~2200 rpm - long before a centrifugal supercharger commonly even creates 1psi of boost, resulting in breathtaking low-mid range acceleration and it also removes the need to rev the engine high to get good acceleration."
