Pretty much all the above was done in late 2008 and over the winter into 2009, and only driven approximately 1200 miles since then.
I bought the car in October 2008 with 161,xxx miles on it. I initially drove it for a couple of weeks and then started the track build. This car is street legal, as I initially drove it to the track. It has been trailered for the past two years, for convenience. Currently it is not registered and has no insurance or plate. I figured why with the trailer.
The car is in storage now, in a climate controlled facility, and when not there, it is in my garage. I have only put about 1200 miles on the car since purchase. I don't know the exact mileage, but it is right around 163k. I have run 17 track days over the past 4 years and the car has been extremely reliable. The only issue I've had was a bad battery, which was just replaced this summer.
The oil is changed every season and the entire brake system is flushed with performance fluid like ATE Super Blue or Wilwood EXP 600+. Additionally I go through the car thoroughly before every track weekend, and check for any issues, leaks, cracks, etc... nothing to note to date.
I have an extra set of front Hawk HT-10 pads. These pads are a perfect fit for the speed and weight of this car. No fade and great initial bite and feedback. The brake system is stock and is more than adequate with the Hawk pads. I also have a full spare tire, Kuhmo Ecsta XS 245-40-17. Not mounted.
There is NO A/C, Radio, speakers, airbags (except for side front in door panel. Just haven't bothered to take them out, but the controller is gone.), the trip reset button doesn't work on gauge cluster, but you can cycle through the computer with the stalk.
Power windows, power locks, lights (head and tail), turn signals, horn, wipers (no rain sensing), washer jets, heater and climate control, and gauges all work fine.
The ABS and DSC work. The DSC can be turned off with the button.
To say the least, the car is raw. Runs great and starts on the first crank out of storage. Burns and leaks NO oil and idles like it was new.
I am active on XBimmers and Xoutpost currently. I have history on E90Post and a good iTrader rating there. All under the name, wsybert.
The pictures with the stripes are the most recent. They were taken at Nelson Ledges in Ohio last year, and the one on the trailer in my driveway was before that trip. (The stripes were done with plastidip, so they will come off if it's not your thing.)
I feel the asking price is a good starting point for a complete, well sorted, fun and safe track car, that needs nothing to go to a track day event. I am open to offers and I don't need to sell it, so I am not giving it away. I am selling because I don't use it that much anymore. Two track weekends last year and one the year prior.
I think I covered it all.... nothing like being thorough.
Thanks for looking.
