1997 BMW M3 Coupe 5 speed
Clean WI title Ė 3rd owner
181,200 Miles as of 1/8/12
I took this car as part of a trade for my Mtech 540i6 a few months ago. Runs and drives awesome, but with a 120 mile daily commute I donít drive it as much as I would like to so I would like to free up the garage space. I want to be as up front with the car as possible so any issues I am aware of will be listed below.
Additional pictures can be viewed at www.photobucket.com/apexm3 and I can provide high resolution images of anything.
Engine & Drivetrain:
-Cooling system has been gone over somewhat recently. Unfortunately I have no documentation on this but what you can see on the outside looks new within the past year or two at most: Zionsville aluminum radiator, radiator hoses, and I just replaced the expansion tank with an OEM Behr unit and new level sensor.
-Aluminum under tray, not sure what brand but it blocks off the passages under the radiator to prevent air from bypassing around it.
-ASC delete with new OEM M Roadster intake boot
Brakes & Suspension:
-Slotted rotors all around, I just rotated the tires and noticed that the pads have plenty of life left and look somewhat recent.
-I noticed that the ABS seems to not work. I canít read the ABS codes with my carsoft so I cannot tell you why.
-Bilstein Sport shocks all around, I ran each part number to verify. Stock springs.
-Manual heated vaders, drivers 6/10, passenger 7.5/10. No rips or tears.
-18 button OBC
-Harmon Kardon audio
-3 spoke wheel and airbag upgrade off a 98+ M3
-Alpine head unit with ipod connector
- ZKW head lights and OEM euro corner and tail lights. I can sell the car with OEM US lighting for less since I wouldnít mind keeping them for my other E36.
-DS1 wheels in good shape
-Bridgestone Blizzack LM-60 225/45/17 with plenty of life left
-Left rear fender is starting to show bubbling. No exposed rust that you can see however.
-Drivers exterior mirror is discoloring
I am asking $6200 OBO as it sits, or $5800 OBO with stock US lighting installed. I do not need to sell the car but I am open to reasonable offers. If it sells, great! If not, that's ok too. The only trades I would consider are E39s. Lowballers, please donít waste my time. While I will try to check on here daily, it is easiest to reach me by email at apexonyou at gmail. The car is located in SE WI, I understand most of you are nowhere near me but if someone is SERIOUSLY interested I would be willing to drive a few hours to meet closer to the prospective buyer, maybe farther.
