1998 E36 M3, 4 Door, 5 Speed, 73k miles, located in Carlsbad, CA 92008. White with Mulberry gray interior.
Asking price: 28k OBO
I have a beautiful low mileage driver car with every maintenance item you could need already completed. This is likely one of the cleanest low mileage but still daily driven M3s you’ve seen in a while. Alpine white paint, mulberry gray interior, non vader seats.
I purchased the car 2.5 years ago from BMW of Fresno who got it form the original owner. I am owner 2. I have every receipt and service record since new. I purchased the car with 60k miles on it, and it is currently sitting at 73k. I have records for all work and parts since new. I daily drive it most days to work in San Diego.
Basically, I have gone through every mount that was rubber and replaced it. Anything that could wear out from age and not mileage in the past 20 years I’ve replaced. Any engine oil lines (ie the power steering lines) that degrade and leak have been replaced. The water cooling system was replaced before my ownership with a stainless steel pump and shows no signs of aging/cracking/degradation. Interior is clean and everything works great. Everything else looks and functions as new.
Over the last 2.5 years I have done the following (and I’m certain I’ll forget something) maintenance
Multiple oil changes
Cabin air filter
Engine air filter
Serpentine /fan belt and tensioners / pullies
Replaced all power steering lines, rack, and fluid tank

Rear trailing arm bushings and limiters (oem with delrin / plastic limiters)
Engine mounts (oem)

Tires Michelin pilot sport 4s A/S

Detail inside and out
The car drives amazingly. It is smooth, fast, and efficient netting 24.3 mpg while happily cruising as fast as you need on highway 5. All of the computer buttons, features, windows, radio, and sunroof function. Seat heaters and radio work great. It has been a blast to own and daily drive. I am selling it because we are moving to the north east, and I do not want to ruin it on the salted roads. In a perfect world, I’d never sell it. No power mods, no abuse, no wrecks, just a clean white on gray M3 with a 5 speed.
Truly a pleasure of a sports car and I wish I had the means to keep it forever
