Selling a clean and well-maintained 1997 BMW M3 sedan (4-door) with 143k miles. The car is mostly stock with aftermarket shocks. Engine runs strong and smooth, manual transmission with no slip in clutch, and has aftermarket Koni Sport shocks installed. Asking for $9,500 and please no low ball offers, they will be ignored.

I purchased this vehicle from my relative who has took care of the car before selling it to me. I owned the car for about 3 years and put only about 8,000 additional miles onto the car as it was used mostly as a backup vehicle.

Exterior: Excellent condition, no noticeable dents or damage. The car has been recently detailed and the paint is in excellent condition, some minor cosmetic chips are on the front/hood due to rocks from normal driving. Minor wear on passenger side front bumper lip. There is a minor gap in the rear bumper to also point out.

Interior: Great condition overall except the headliner is separating from the roof of the car and one of the pillars (common issue); the driver's seat has noticeable wear on the side. Rear seats and trunk space are in excellent condition. Aside from the mentioned issues, the rest of the car is in great condition and minimal cosmetic damage.

Engine: Excellent! runs smooth and has been well maintained! Clutch is excellent and grips with no slip. Oil has regularly been changed and topped off with Mobile 1 synthetic oil. The cooling system has regularly been inspected and without any leak issues. The car has passed smog without any issues last done in November 2018. Engine is completely stock and has no issues.

Handling: Excellent and comes with adjustable Koni Sport Shocks (adjustment tools included). Car drives very smooth but can be calibrated to your liking from all 4 wheels.

Other Details:
Wood Interior Trim and Shifter
BMW 6-Disc CD changer
Euro Style BMW Glass Headlights (GLASS + HID)
Has two sets of keys and key-less entry fobs
Clean paint, detailed, waxed, and garaged.
Tires / Brakes still good
Clutch is excellent

There are not a lot of 4-door BMW M3 E36 with a manual transmission out there, take a look for yourself and decide if this is what you want. This car is well taken care of and makes a great all-around vehicle for someone looking for a practical and sporty car. This was a weekend/secondary car so it was never driven daily or abused on the track.

If you are interested please leave your number I will try to make time to meet in a public location upon an agreed time in or near San Francisco. I can meet up after 3 PM on work days and on most weekends if scheduled ahead of time; let me know your availability.
