Last MY ZCP factory manual transmission with 48.3K miles, clean vehicle history, OEM paint depth on all panels, and no-expenses spared maintenance history.

When I bought the M3 in 2012 (after more than a year of searching), a BMW dealer replaced the LSD and VANOS bolts with OEM updated versions, changed the spark plugs and oil, brake, coolant and LSD fluid, adjusted the valves and replaced the power steering hose.

OEM paint depth on all panels was verified by paint meter during PPI in 2012. Paint correction was then done to remove 6 years’ worth of swirls from the first owner, and brought back the dark blue color of Carbon Black, then full front PPF was installed to protect the paint corrected exterior.

I replaced the US spec armrest with the European only OEM short center console, which has more room for occasional rear passengers.

The subframe has been inspected regularly by dealers and BMW indie shops during regular maintenance intervals and shows no sign of damage.

Regular Blackstone tests after oil changes have shown very low copper, so rod bearings have not been done.

Airbag recalls have been done at BMW dealers. While there, the dealer replaced the passenger half shaft boot, Bank 2 O2 sensor and coolant temp sensor.

I always garaged the M3, and regularly used Leatherique to condition the leather. Front seats have some creases but no scratches or discoloration on side bolsters.

In 2018, at 44K miles, a BMW indie shop upgraded the VANOS hub, adjusted the valves and replaced the thermostat.

In 2018, the PPF that was done in 2012 was looking a little tired from daily driving, so I had an Xpel dealer removed it and Xpel full car PPF was installed and ceramic coating (unavailable in 2012) applied.

In 2019, at 44.6K miles, I had a new set of Michelin PS4S installed.

During lockdown, I decided to start doing interior and exterior rejuvenation. I replaced the interior pillar trims, steering wheel covers, short center console, rear seat belt trim covers. I also removed the headliner and had an upholstery shop recover it with OEM fabric.

Front seatbelts were starting to twist from age and both were replaced with new OEM ones.

I replaced exterior rear trims, hood vent, spray nozzles, and wiper arms, which were slightly faded though the car has always been garaged.

In 2022, a BMW indie shop replaced the heater core and evaporator. After that job, I replaced the AC center vents (which were loose from age and frequent use in warm climates).

This car was my daily driver for a few years, but it has been in storage (plugged into a CTek and covered by a Covercraft) for the past few years.
