I have been toying with idea of another E36 project and then maybe a mostly stock/OEM+ E36 M3 sedan daily. So the Jeep has been for sale for a little while and thinking about selling the E30 as well. I will start by saying the vehicle is very clean and as you will see it is well put together with top quality parts.

There is way more and I know I am forgetting stuff. As you will see in the build thread there was no skimping on the project. Little things like new license plate bulb holders with LED lights were installed. New gaskets. Bolts and nuts. Brackets. Hoses. Belts. Etc. All was changed at the time of install. There is no smoking. No leaking. No weird noses. The interior is clean. The exterior is clean. It is ready to drive, road trip, track or autox. It is damn fun. It fires immediately. It runs good in the rain, cold or heat. Just want to do something new.

Issues: No Car is perfect…
-Small Dent(1/2in) over rear wheel arch
-Slight paint fade on roof/Clear Intact
-Horn Works but needs to be wired to Personal Horn Button
-iS Lip fell off and got a rubber scuff – No Damage – All clips/brackets were replaced with new

I can provide references that have driven, ridden and seen this car in person and can state the condition the vehicle is in and the way it drives and feels. The car is nice and I would not hesitate to fly in and drive it to California if need be. There is no known issue that would cause me to think it would not make it and thousands of miles after that. The only reason why this and my Jeep Wrangler is for sale is I want to get back into an E36 M3… that has 4 doors and a 5 speed. And maybe an E36 M3 coupe? Thanks for looking!

Will consider trades for an E36 M3. Must be clean and modifications that are tasteful are fine. Equal value cars or lesser value cars plus trades. Prefer sedans and only 5 speeds. Let me know what you have available!

Asking 12,500obo

This is open to wheeling and dealing. It is my starting price. Equal vehicles sell anywhere from 10K-14K. It is a NICE car. I would look through the two post linked above. They are PAGES long and detail everything done... and there is a lot. At this point I can say I have certainly forgotten something that was updated or changed so if there are questions please let me know.

PS - Happy to talk on the phone if you prefer. Current WORKING odometer is 152,XXX miles. That is correct and properly documented chassis mileage. 2 owner(now 3 owner) California car.
