What's needed:

Front Grill ($40)
Front Strut hat is missing one bolt
Tires are old and don't hold the power, but can still drive the car regularly without any issue.
Speakers (wiring is pre-wired)
Wash and a half day of detailing

Front Passenger side fender has a small dent the size of a tennis ball.
Borla Resonator is scraped on the bottom from a speed bump.
Small puncture on the exhaust tubing by the rear from speed bump.

Notes about the car:
Engine was broken in with Rotella 30w Oil. Flushed once dry prior to initial start. Flushed again after: 5 Minutes of initial break in, first 250 miles, and again after 1000 mile break in. Currently has about 2300 miles on the engine, and 200k on the chassis. Car is rock solid and in mint shape for it's age.

ARP Head Studs were torqued down 3 times, after heat cycles and recently checked again at 65ft/lbs using ARP Lube.

Camshaft bearings were checked to ensure proper bearing clearance via Plastigauge.

Maintained post break in with Castrol Syntec 20w-50 Synthetic.
Castrol Fluid for power steering (small leak should go away with stop leak).
Transmission was also flushed with Royal Purple.
BMW OEM Coolant was used for cooling system.

Brake system is in top notch condition. Rotors don't show any grooves from the 2000 miles of driving.

A lot of smaller items are also new that I didn't bother listing such as wiper, emblems, shift surround, and etc. This car is ready to be driven home with a pair of seats.

Power Output:
@15psi w/ pump gas
307.7wtq @ 4941rpm
303.9whp @ 5319rpm

Engine was overbuilt to handle 20psi reliably and more. Turbo can be upgraded to a real Garret with a properly sized housing as the current A/R is too big (all that was available at the time) for maximum power. Car is very fast already and eats my E46 M3 for lunch, but more power is easily available by turning up the boost.

New owner will benefit greatly from a GC Coilover kit, new wheels and tires, FCAB, LSD, and the remaining interior bits. That is literally all that is needed.

Over $10,500 invested in parts into this car easily. This doesn't account for any of the labor, R&D, and machine hours.

It's also pre-wired with 4 Channel Monster RCA's if you plan to run an aftermarket audio system.

Reason I'm selling this car is that I picked up an E46 M3 and don't have any room for either car anymore so one has to go. This car has been my baby, everything done to the car is not half-assed in any manner. It looks funky right now as it doesn't have a proper suspension or wheels. Literally all the vital components are new as they have only been on the car for less than 3-4 months and most of that time the car has been sitting.

Please only PM me for requests if you are a serious buyer.

Asking Price is $8000, if sold but I'm open to trades within the same price range or + Cash. (E39, E46, E36, or other makes must be RWD)
Serious Inquiries Only 818.746.6997.
Location Southern California, 91307.

*Car is currently sitting under a cover (also included) so I will post up older pictures of the car before I parted the suspension, wheels, seats, and Euro Grills and IS lip. Currently sits on stock suspension, 14" basketweaves and no front Euro Grills.

Another fun looking car for sale, lots of cool stuff out there right now. Regrettably I dont even use the three cars I have now that I pedal the 300 yards to work everyday. Great looking car GLWS wish I was in the market.
