My Ride: 2004 E46 M3
FS (626): 2004 M3 Alpine White Manual

Hello,

I bought this car on 04/2011 at 8x,xxx miles as a project car. The engine and transmission were very strong, and still is, but the rest of the car needs some work. So since then, here are the parts that I have installed:

- 19x8.5 and 19x10 VMR VB3 Gunmetal w/Michelin
- ST V1 by KW
- FCAB and RTAB (Powerflex, I think?)

- Driver Side window Trim
- Sunroof Complete Assembly (done last week)
- Headlight lenses & seals
- Passenger side headlight seals
- Windshield Cover (51718232894)

- Headers/Cats (two weeks ago)
- OEM Header Gaskets
- Constant Pressure Valve (11111318185)
- Hex Nuts (11721437202)
- Pressure Hose Assembly (11727831039)

- A-Pillar Covers (01/2013)
- C-Pillar Covers (01/2013)
- Kenwood KVT-516 w/Garmin GPS & iPod Connector
- ZHP Shift Knob with new boot
- M3 Floor Mats (I'm not sure why they were missing before but I got replacements)

Here are the spare parts I have:
- Radiator Coolant Sensor (current one is throwing CEL from time to time so it's time to replace)
- Shift Lever Bearing (25111220600 I figure it'll improve shifting)
- Sun Roof Glass and mold
- Sun Roof Motor
*there might be more*

The car has about 117,xxx miles, mostly freeway. It's garaged, and taken around the block to charge the battery once a week. The front bumper should be repainted soon. Driver side foglight is broken from freeway rocks. My plan was to replace the bumper with a CSL replica from Modbargain and do away with the foglights. As I become busier, having a project car isn't the best fit for my lifestyle. I think I did a pretty decent job so far making the car as OEM looking as possible, and I hope I can find someone who appreciates this car to take over. Carfax shows me as both the 3rd and 4th owner, because I refinanced the car with a different bank. I believe the 1st and 2nd owners are the same person as well, first leasing the car and then bought it out.

$18,500. all reasonable offers will be considered.

I actually prefer that you finance, that way your bank/credit union can just deal with mine. But we can always use an escrow service if you pay cash.

No test drives. Bad experience from letting people drive my previous vehicles. I will, however, be more than happy to take you around the blocks to let you listen to the engine and get the feel of things.

Thanks for looking.

Hi Huey(sic?),
I can take the car out to the next meet, whenever that is, if I still have the car. Otherwise it's a bit of drive, since I am having some tough deadlines this month and have to work on weekends. As far as test driving go, I've usually only taken people around the block letting them riding shotgun in the past because I'm anal about letting others drive my cars. If your friend is serious, then I'll... twist my arm and let him...
Thanks, man!

Thanks, man!
close enough lol so you're close to selling it? no worries, we can wait. i think he won't be able to buy it until June. but i'm doing all the leg work in terms of checking out cars and stuff for him. if he paid me gas, i would just drive to you lol

as for driving, i guess we can wait on it. i have to give to ok first on the car. so i guess you can't consider him serious lol

do you have any stock items that you will include in the sale? he wants the car as stock as possible.
