I am selling my 1998 BMW M3 E36 (with the original M Contour wheels - NOT selling with the Apex Arc 8 wheels) with 169K mileage. I daily drive this car to/from BART station which is about 10 minutes drive from my house. I purchased this car for the purpose of enjoying it out on track days and converting it into a fully-dedicated track car. But I have chosen to not pursue it and decided to prioritize other goals.

So far, I have taken it out on track days for a total of 3 track days out in Thunderhill in 2018.

The car was purchased with 165K miles from a BMW tech owner who has performed much of the maintenance owning it back since 2005 with BMW OEM parts. I then bought the car in March 2018. Since I've taken ownership, I have upgraded the following to help with track day duties...

Upgraded Cooling System Overhaul Package from Turner Motorsport
- MZ3 Radiator (new upper/lower hoses)
- New Thermostat
- New Stewart High Performance Water Pump
- New Coolant Level Sensor
- New OEM Mahle Coolant Expansion
- This upgrade work is performed by a BMW Tech

- New engine air filter
- Oil change with Liqui Moly 5w40

- Flushed/filled with Redline D4 ATF (transmission)
- Flushed/filled with Redline 75W140NS (differential)

- Stoptech Slotted Rotors (front & rear)
- Stoptech Stainless Steel Brake Lines (front & rear)
- Brake fluid bled with Castrol SRF
- Hawk HPS Brake pads (front)
- OEM brake pads (rear)
- Hard Motorsport Brake ducts (in need of 3" hose cooling ducts. Current hose ducts had rips from tire rub during track day)

- Turner Motorsport 30mm front sway bar
- Bimmerworld Camber Shims (allowed for -2.5 camber up front)
- 15mm wheel spacers
- Converted to wheel studs
- Forged open ended Gorilla wheel lug nuts

- BMW X Brace

- Renown 130R Steering Wheel

Exterior have blemishes as normal from a 20 year old vehicle. I have recently polished the car and removed about 60%-70% of swirls. Otherwise the car is in great mechanical condition. Interior is in good condition. Plenty of tire treads on all 4 corners. This car runs great. This E36 M3 car is otherwise STOCK!
