I'm considering parting with my e36 1997 BMW M3 Sedan simply because I don't have the time to drive or work on it and I feel bad to have her sitting. I have put a ton of time and money into this car. Beautiful shape overall, and an amazing driver.

The car:
1997 BMW M3 Sedan, 5-speed, 183k, Boston Green Metallic, Magma Interior

Parts/mods (all within past 10k miles):
* New spark plugs and coil packs
* New OEM Rear main seal
* New OEM Motor mounts
* Valve cover gasket
* Fuel injector o-rings
* New Starter
* Mishimoto silicone intake elbow (ASC delete)
* Magma (beige/brown) leather interior, sport seats
* Authentic AC Schnitzer Wheels
* Euro (glass + projector) headlights with LED halos, smoked corners, smoked markers (done)
* Rear smoked tail lights
* New OEM Fog lamps
* Some new trim pieces
* Eibach Sport Springs and Koni SA Shocks/struts
* Suspension - all brand new bushings, mostly Poly, control arms, tie arms, bolts, reinforcements, etc ($2k)
* Dinan strut tower brace
* Rogue Rear Shock Mounts
* Turner Rear strut brace
* 4 new slotted rotors and pads
* Copper caliper paint
* Speed bleed valves
* Stainless steel brake lines
* UUC front and rear sway bar, end links, bushings
* Adjustable rear trailing arms
* Stud conversion
* Poly diff mounts
* New OEM trans mounts
* Refurbished and reinforced Subframe, powder coated
* Brand new Turner TMS lightweight flywheel and Clutch Masters FX300 Kevlar Clutch Kit, HD throwout bearing
* Redline Transmission Oil
* Short throw shifter (OEM Z3)
* All new shift bushings
* UUC DSSR shift rod
* New weighted knob (genuine BMW)
* New Guibo / flex coupler & drive shaft support bearing
* Dinan carbon fiber intake
* Stromung Exhaust
* New Bosch Battery
* Upgraded OEM cassette deck, added Audiovox Bluetooth module
* more

Still on the todo list, for those that want to make it "perfect" (If not interested in these parts, I can sell them separately and lower the price of the car to reflect):

* Cooling system works flawlessly and doesn't leak, but I put together a full overhaul to install at some point, including: aluminum radiator, electric fan conversion and controller, all new hoses, accessory belt overhaul kit, racing water pump, thermostat, etc.
* Euro steering wheel and airbag, professionally re-wrapped
* New OE front lip
* New OE wiper cowl
* SS clutch line, new reservoir, big clutch stop (not needed, but nice upgrades)
* Power steering overhaul kit: all new lines and reservoir (power steering hoses currently leak a bit)
* New windshield rubber trim (doesn't leak, cosmetic upgrade)
* New redline diff oil and drain plugs

Other areas that could use help:
* Front seats were re-conditioned and look better, but could use a bit more work to make them look great
* Headliner sags and should be re-glued/replaced

Email if you're serious and interested and we can talk. This would make a great daily, street, track, or autocross car.
