WTT 500+ HP Silvia for E46 BMW M3
I'm putting up my baby for trade for an E46 M3. I don't have too many preferences, but if I had to choose, I'd want a relatively low mileage Black or White M3. I'm open to any offers though... I AM willing to add cash for the right car, but don't offer me your stock 2002 M3 with 100K miles and ask for 5k on top.
History on this car:
I bought this car a few months ago for $15,000 dollars. Since then, I've spent over $5000+ dollars making this car absolutely perfect. It is very fast, very reliable(took it on a 10 hour drive no problems), and absolutely daily driveable. I literally built this car to be my daily driver dream car, and have done absolutely everything imaginable to make it damn near perfect. As you read through the mods below, you'll see that EVERY aspect of this car has been given attention to.
THERE IS WELL OVER 30K INVESTED INTO THIS CAR!
Every common failure in these cars has been addressed, and already replaced BEFORE failure, so you can be assured that nothing will need to be done for quite some time.
Anyways...sadly, I have to trade her away.... I got a promotion at the lawfirm I work at last Friday , and my new job description requires that I drive lawyers around town. However, my boss wasn't to fond of my new sports car. My boss has specifically told me I will NOT be able to receive my promotion until I get a car that's suitable for giving rich lawyers rides around town. GRRRRRR
Anyways, I'm basically screwed on this one. They won't give me a company car, but I really need the money from the promotion.
So sadly, I have to trade my dream car
Here are some quick pics...I'll get better ones up in a few days when I find my camera(just moved into a new place haven't unpacked yet):
NOTE: Pictures are from before all of the work was done. Hood is properly aligned now(no gap like in last picture and AC lines are installed(they aren't in the engine shot).
Annnnd here are the mods. Most of the parts are less than a year old, and many are only a few weeks old(I tried to put dates on the ones that were changed within the last few weeks)

Driver side door trimmings are beginning to come a bit loose. Not a big deal, but I'd put a little glue in there just to be keep everything looking clean
Speedo is not accurate due to wheels, 6 cylinder on a 4 cylinder tach etc. Just double what it says and your good(GPS verified).
Driving may cause excessive attention from the ladies(could be a problem for the married folks)
The car is currently set to 15PSI and probably making around 450-500HP. The turbo can do a lot more if you really want to, but 500HP in a 2500LB car is plenty for me. Easily capable of 600-700HP if you turn the boost up.
I'm located in Charleston, SC but I can drive to meet you pretty much anywhere.
PM me if interested

So then said employer should pay for some of this new car if part of your job description is to wine and dine people. Your boss tells you he wants you to get another car, then he should help you attain that car.

And yes, in a perfect world my boss would just buy me a car

Dude find another job . if my boss said i dont like your car i would quit. stand up for yourself. Unless this is an excuse for a car you really want.. I work for ceo's and Presidents of major corporations and never get harrased about what car i drive. BTW isnt that what a town car is for.

You guys dont get it.
I've been offered a promotion, but the promotion requires me to wine and dine lawyers. They don't have to give me the position, but they are offering. If they hire someone before I accept, than I simply won't get the promotion.
In the real world life isn't always fair.

Have you considered buying one of these to wine/dine your clients in?
Very cheap, low maintenance, cheap insurance, and boss should be happy with this choice. Personally, I think boss man should pony up some $ to assist with this "required" change.
