My Ride: 1998 M3
FS: 1998 Active Autowerke Techno Violet 470hp BMW M3 Hardtop Convertible 42k miles CA

For sale is a truly one of a kind BMW M3. It is 1 of 53 convertibles with this color combination, and the only one to receive a complete Stage 2 package by Active Autowerke.

This car started life as a stock 1998 BMW M3, but was completely decked out by Active Autowerke to the tune of over $35,000 ($23,650.95 in 1999, $6,851.14 in 2006, and $5,196.33 in 2012). All of the work was done by Active at Active, and it is fully documented. In fact, I have every piece of documentation for this car since the day it rolled of the lot, and all of the work has been done by either Active, BMW or a certified BMW mechanic.

This car pushes about 470HP. It has never been abused or raced. I purchased the car from the original owner who was an elder gentleman who kept it as a Sunday driver. Which is represented by the less than 42,000 original miles on the odometer.

The beauty of this car is that it drives like stock, albeit with a lot more of a kick. It drives and handles exactly like a BMW M3 should...not like the disappointing 240HP stock M3s that leave you wanting more.

The car has received all of its required service and it remains in near perfect operating condition. The tires have about 5,000 miles on them, the rotors and the calipers have a ton of meat on them. This car needs nothing, but a new driver.

I would rate the interior an exterior at a 7 out of 10. The matching hardtop does not leak, and the soft top has almost never been used.

I can provide copies of the documentation and any additional pictures by request.

The car also comes with an additional set of staggered wheels and tires. The wheels are not in the best of shape, but all four of the Perrelli PZERO tires have less than 1000 miles on them.

The KBB private party value of the car is:
Excellent - $13,286
Very Good - $12,961
Good - $12,761
(http://www.kbb.com/bmw/m3/1998-bmw-m...ty&anchor=true)

The Truecar Private Party Sale Price is
Low Range: $13,802
Market Average Sale Price: $12,445
High Range: $14,235
Recommended List Price: $16,121
(http://clearbook.truecar.com/used-bm...1my3c0/t_curve)

If you include the cost of the car, there is almost $90,000 in this car (all of which is documented).

The car and I are in Monterey, Ca.

I am asking $19,995.

Deal fell through.

Apparently the buyer's financing was based on him selling his old car before he could buy the M3. It would have been nice if he told me that from the start.

Car is now back up for sale, but at the price I negotiated with him: $18,500
