Hello All! I am testing waters in possibly selling my 2003 M3. I want to be transparent and if it doesn’t sell, I will be keeping the car. I am also looking for a couple of trades I am interested in.
BMW ZHP Manual and 4 door only color doesn’t matter, station wagon 3 series e46 chassis also manual only (professionally swapped is okay). Older 4 Runner manual only with cash on top. Toyota Tacoma Manual only willing to trade straight up as the cars are equal value. These are also the cars I am looking to purchase if the M3 sells.
Details about the car:
Purchased in June 2023 with 97K Miles
– Original SMG, 6 speed swap fully done(all smg components removed and cluster swap performed, unfortunately no paper work, the previous owner didnt have it either)
Mileage: 109K it will go up as I use the car for daily driving
– Car has been repainted, possibly by the 2nd owner, the owner before me told that it was re painted professionally but he didnt know either, but wanted to disclose it to me. I do not know why it was repainted and I cant tell that it was repainted.
BIG 3 Done:
Rod Bearings done @93k by Leichtbau in Costa Mesa
-VANOS fully serviced (Besian) @80k miles by Racewerkz in Burbank
Subframe reinforced with welded plates, 2 owners ago.
-Bimmerworld 4.10 differential
-ST coilovers
-SPL rear adjustable camber amrs
-AKG aluminum differential, subframe, spherical trail arm bushings
-Tuner motorsport rear sway bar
-MSI Lug Stud Conversion
-Rogue Engineering Section 2 +Superspring Section 3
-Auto Solutions Short Shifter Kit 25% reduction
– CSL Style Carbon Fiber Front Lip
-CSL Style Rear Diffuser
-Android Head Unit
-CSF Radiator installed @99k miles at Studio RSR
– Differential fluid and trans fluid changed at Studio RSR @99k Miles
-New thermostat, waterpump, coolant tank installed @102k miles at Precision German Performance in Anaheim
– Oil Changes done every 3k miles at S5X Performance, Precision German Performance and Studio RSR
What is needed:
-It needs a VANOS Adjustment unit, it is leaking but not bad
-Power Steering lines are leaking, but not bad as well, common for the mileage
-Left front shock is making a clunking noise
-Transmission is a bit notchy, but only when the car is cold, could be the worn out synchros. I dont drive the car hard or track it so it doesn’t bother me
-Sunroof works but the cover has to be pulled back pretty hard & sometimes gets stuck a quarter of the way back. I dont use the sunroof so it doesnt bother me.
– there is small crack in the windshield happened recently located bottom right of the windshield.
-key battery just stopped working so you have to manually lock the car
– back pilars of headliner are starting to sag a tiny bit but nothing major
That is about all I can think of. If you have questions dont hesitate to text me at 310 465 5935 or message me on facebook.
If you would like to see the car, I am in Orange County 3 days a week and mostly home on weekends in the south bay, hermosa area.
