|Okay so here's the deal with this car. I have my retail auto dealers license and I can buy and sell cars from any of the various auctions, or trade in's that came from any dealer. Essentially I have the ability to do anything any other car dealer can do.
However, on top of being a dealer, I'm also an enthusiast. Most dealers only buy cars to sell. Most dealers know next to nothing about what they're selling. Especially when it comes to a modified or specialized car. There are some cars that I buy for personal use and I may keep them for a while before selling them.
This M3 is just such a car. I've owned it for well over a year and I've put countless dollars into it to make it the way I like and get it up to the standards of something I would like to drive. That being said though. I did originally buy it with my dealers license so now that it's time to sell it I still have to sell it through my dealers license the same way any other dealer would have to sell any of their cars.
Here's the info on the car.
1995 BMW M3 Coupe in Dakar Yellow with Black Vaders and 160k miles. (I do drive the car from time to time so the miles will go up as I drive it)
Dakar Yellow Paint
Black Vader seats
5 Speed manual transmission
DS II BMW Motorsport Wheels (Style 2)
Heated seats (They're unplugged though)
Full function computer
Manual adjustment seats
Depo Elipsoid Euro lights with HID Drop in kit.
Clear front turn signals
Clear side turn indicators
Cross drilled rotors
Momo shift knob (It's a little worn though)
In dash CD player with Aux plug for iPod or MP3, as well as RCA outputs for front/rear/subwoofer
Rockford Fosgate speakers
Recent Maintenance (All done within the last year)
Complete top end motor rebuild including new head, head gasket, valve stem seals, etc.
AC recharged and new belt
New cooling fan
New subframe mouts and control arm bushings
4 brand new matching tires
4 wheel alignment
New drivers side window regulator
New Clips on drivers door panel to fix the sagging issue.
Along with the maintenance repairs Ive also done the following
Stripped the ugly faded purple tint off the windows
Replaced the windshield and molding
Replaced the HVAC controls (heat and AC both work perfectly)
Painted the front/Rear bumpers, hood, fenders, and trunk lid along with filling the holes where the rear spoiler used to be mounted. I also had the rest of the the single stage Dakar Yellow paint buffed to make it look good.
What it still needs.
ABS Control Module
There is a very small handful of paintless dent repair type dents
The drivers door panel is doing the puffy bubbling issue.
Heated seats aren't plugged in
The wheels aren't as clean as the paint. There's some pitting, fading, etc. However, they are straight, and not cracked.
The pressure sensor on the door that causes the windows to drop the 1/4" when opening and closing the doors on both doors is worn out.
The ambient air temp sensor isn't working properly so the on board computer tells you that it's -35 degrees outside regardless of what the actual temp is.
Everything else works on the car. Both windows, the sunroof and the wing windows all work correctly, the cruise control works, all lights, headlights, taillights, and blinkers work. The on board computer works and there are no faded or pixelated areas. I had the rest of the suspension components/cooling system and any other E36 problematic areas inspected including the guibo and anything I didn't change is in good shape.
The title is CLEAN NON SALVAGED
I'm sure there's some things that I'm not remembering. When I bought the car it needed some love and I've put a lot of love into it. If I can remember anything else that I forgot to mention, I'll update the ad accordingly.
Now, as for price. Since this is a car that I've owned for a while and has been used for personal use, I don't "Have To" sell it. That being said. I'm not desperate and I don't really feel like losing any money. As of right now I own the car for $7,728.07 so that's what I'll sell it for. If I end up fixing any of the other issues. I.E. the ABS Control Module, or anything else, then the price will go up accordingly.
If someone wants to pay me what I'm into it then I would let it go, if not, then I'll continue to drive it. It's a blast to drive after all.
