I bought this car from the 2nd owner who is a retired doctor. He owned the car for the majority of the time, around 20 years so. He babied this car and it is well taken care of. The exterior and interior is extremely clean. This car is completely stock and has never been abused. Also a folder full of maintenance records will be included.

The intention of this car was to do an automatic to manual conversion but we decided to focus on other projects instead. Quotes for this conversion range from $1800 to $2600 from various BMW shops. The car has been inspected by Edge Motorworks in Mountain View with no serious issues. The common issues discovered are the old rubber suspension parts, the power steering leaks slightly, a minor valve cover leak and the seat belt light is on. Other than that, the car is a strong, mechanically well taken care of M3.

Improvements:
New 3M Tint, 30% all around
OEM Euro taillights, originals included
Auto to manual swap parts could be included with the car at full asking price
= 98k miles ZF Transmission, pedals, clutch/pressure/flywheel
Changed chrome to non-chrome Contour wheels (if that counts)

Asking $13,500, reduced: $12,500
Serious & mature buyers only, low ballers will be ignored
Cash in hand for test drives only
Bring a trailer has valued these cars up to $15k with higher miles
