1998 BMW M3 with LS3 swap for sale
Selling my 1998 BMW M3 with LS3 swap and 6 Speed T56 transmission.

$23,000 or best offer.

Car is located in Irvine California.

Wife just gave me permission to pick up a Z06 Vette and while I love my car, I always wanted a Z06.

Full story of the car and the build is Here http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum....php?t=1624778 , I am hiding nothing, you can see the full build from stock. I've had the car for about a year. It currently has 119K miles on the chassis and only 1K on a freshly built LS3. I had a LS1 in it first, but had a valvetrain failure so the motor was pulled and I built the new LS3. I have over 30K in the car as it sits right now. On the last dyno session it put down 455whp and 435wtq. It stupid fast, it destroys my buddies E92 M3 with a supercharger that puts down 490whp.

The entire suspension was replaced, every bushing and all balljoints.

Only issues with the car are driver door lock solenoid sometimes doesnt work. It opens and closes with a key just fine. I also lost the remote control, so it only has a manual key. The Alarm is installed and functional just need the fob.
