2004 M3 101k miles- New pics, snows, vmr CSL, Dynavin clone yadda yadda yadda

I WAS Considering selling my car== Now I have come to terms with it. It has to go. Its time to grow up. Time to be an adult. Time to buy a home rather than rent. Big toy has to go. This sale is prompted ONLY because I want to buy a home, provide for my little girls.. yadda yadda.. Time to stop goofin off.

Pics are as of last Sunday= except the money shot- summer pic.

DETAILS-
car has 100,950miles on it. Service II was done at 90k, I have owned the car since 80k. Oil change at 83k, 90k, 97k and it is due for another since it had sat. The oil will be changed at the dealer- or at least with the recommended oil change kit at a friends heated garage. Pictured tires and wheels have less than 1500 miles on them. I put them on in April of 12' and then barely drove the car. Also comes with snows on OEM 19 which were driven one season (probably 2k miles, tops) and are like new.. The OEM 19" rims are a little ugly.. lol. I was going to spray-bomb them black if I used them this year. Instead- The car has just sat. They are for snow use- who cares?

I Replaced the pads and rotors with bimmerbrakes stuff at 83k, the water pump at 84k. I replaced the fuel pump with a high volume replacement at 85k. I replaced the driver side door actuator at 89k.

added the halo's, replaced various doodaads that were worn (armrest, drivers arm pad, leaky mirror (new one now leaks- eye roll), Euro Tray, added suspension from a 50k mile car at 83k (got rid of Tien Lowering kit)..

Front Bumper and passenger side mirror were professionally repainted last year in April.

I have put less than 2k miles on the car in the last year. Wife and I work at same company, we car pool. Have kids and no extra booster seats.. car sits and sits..

I added the Dynavin Clone this past May. Its cool.

The interior is Black leather and it had brushed aluminum which I refinished to titanium shadow this past summer.. Very meticulous care was taken. The mirrior leaked on the damn center console, ruining its finish. Luckily, i can repair this as I am the one who did the refinish.

The car runs well. It does have a small issue with a dowel that had come loose from the flywheel and rattles around from time to time.. It only is noticeable when you romp on the car- for daily civil driving- shows ZERO sign of any issue.

the seats are worn but in decent shape. 7/10. The steering wheel is worn. Im not gonna lie, I intended on a re-wrap. Has some creeks/rattles as any 100k mile car on 19" rims would. The car rides smooth and runs strong. SMG has given no major cause for concern- THOUGH- on occasion- when it is REALLY cold out, it does like to throw an error when first started and then reversed out of the drive and then put into first. Restart the car and it doesn't do it again. Probably the relay? Dunno. NO OTHER ERROR EVER. Shifts fast and crisp.

The negatives= the passenger door has a ding. the A B and C pillars aren't awesome. They're not awful. But they're not awesome. The title is clean- does have a lien on it from a bank. NOT a salvage, NOT a flood= a clean title. The "CarFox" says there was an accident in 07'. Someone claimed there was "Unibody Damage" at an auction and to that I am dumbfounded. I bought the car with this knowledge and with my own inspection. All of the panel gaps are straight- I don't see any signs on any of the structural parts of the car to denote that it was hit hard. I have been in, out and under this car many times. Nothing is twisted. Nothing is crunched. A tech at my local dealer said he couldn't find anything and suggested that perhaps it was reported this way for someone to get an insurance check? Look at the pics. Come inspect-

$13,750 is my asking price and this has the oil change and an interior cleaning built into it. I also have the extra set of wheels/snows built into it. If you want a better price= we can talk about me selling the other wheels on my own.. and dropping the price 1k.. though- I kinda think its the best priced M3 on EARTH already.. and the extra tires/wheels just add to the value.

Located in Buffalo NY. Not looking for trades. No funny business. Car is priced REALLY decently in comparison to what I see out there.. The others have 20k less miles but are 5k more... OR similar priced with a salvage title...

I have one interested party as of now- but his time frame is just slightly less ideal than mine. I have to try to post this once more before I take his deposit. I think he is talking about flying up next week to view.

kmb58@buffalo.edu is my email and is the FASTEST point of contact for me. PMs will delay my response.

DON'T let the low price scare you. I look around, and truthfully, I should be asking more. This price is a "fire sale" price because I want out yesterday. I need this payment off of my credit report ASAP as we want to make a move on a house.


I CAN go lower if you want to leave the snows here. OR if you want to take the snows and leave the VB3's...

Ha,, you and me both, my friend.

Thanks for the bump.. it really is a steal. Even with the minor tweaks it needs.. it's still below the average price..




For the ninth time, I have things built into the price... but it is kinda firm. One of the things built into the price is covering part of your traveling expenses.

Excellent price. SMG over 100k tends to scare people but this seems well cared for. GLWS !

It's no worse than any other mechanical system. Justnuts and bolts.. and err... Hydraulics..

Or no worse than Vanos.

Or no worse than S54 I general. lol.. but, I have cared for the car. It's far from perfect, but never the less, a head turner.

OOh, this is beautiful. I want to buy my girlfriend a new car for her Birthday as she is currently riding in a fairly knackered 323ci. I'll let you know if I can sort the financing out. Good luck with the sale otherwise. Should move quickly.

This is a SMOKIN' deal for a seemingly clean car. I hope deals like this exist around Spring when I need a daily!

Thanks for the kind words, guys. It's a great car. Not perfect, but hey, it's also not 18k.
