So the time has come for me to sell my M3. I’ve owned the car for a little over a year but with everything going on in my life right now I’ve decided it’s time to part ways. It’s a 2009 and has 145060 miles on it, clean title and I’m the third owner. The front tires have a few hundred miles on them, 255/35 19 Hankook Ventus V12 Evo2 and the rears have around 3000 miles one them and are 275/35 19 and are the same as the front. The wheels are VMRs that have been on the car since it was nearly new, I think the first owner put them on when the car had around 10k miles. So not like brand new, but new enough.
The rod bearings were done by MRF Engineering under my ownership. I have the receipt as well as service records dating back to when it was new. As well as oil analysis from before they were replaced, no signs of issues. The throttle actuators were done at around 94k miles by Funzhen in Orange and they were responsible for the majority of the services under the second owner who I bought the car from.
When I got the car I took over doing the maintenance, I’ve been a professional tech for since I was 18. So I did everything I felt like doing.
135300 – Replaced LDP – Car was throwing an evap code, no issues since the replacement
136100 – Replaced header to mid pipe gasket and both front oxygen sensors, the car wouldn’t run the oxygen sensor monitor and I needed to smog it. The mode six data pointed to worn oxygen sensors but just to be sure there wasn’t any unmetered o2 I replaced the gaskets between the mid pipe and the headers
136294 – Replaced front and rear rotors with Zimmerman parts. Replaced front brake pads, the rears were still fine but the rotors were assumed to be original
136644 – replaced spark plugs and installed new Dinan air filter
138129 – replaced transmission fluid using Motul 75/80, cleaned filter screen
138212 – installed Bimmerworld mono ball bushings in front tension arms
142242 – replaced idle control valve, replace both SAIR valves and hose connecting to air pump
The car has a Dinan intake, exhaust, and tune. They were all installed by the dealer at 14k miles, except the exhaust has been replaced since because about a month after I got the car I was rear ended. The only damage was the exhaust and bumper cover. The repair work was done by ABS Autobody in El Monte. While it was there Kevin insisted on replacing the worn rear emblems, which I was fine with There is one other accident, the front driver’s side fender was replaced during the second owners time with the car. A truck bumped him at John Wayne and broke a piece of the fender. There is some interior wear as expected with any older BMW, the worst of it being the small hole worn in the drivers bolster.
The car also has Dinan fixed camber plates that I installed and “race” polyurethane differential bushings which were installed by EAS.
