Own a piece of German performance car history. This highly desirable and collectible E30 BMW M3 has 113,500 miles on it. It was purchased it back in 2009 from a local buyer in Colorado and has remained here the past 7 years since. The vehicle has extensive maintenance records and includes some amazing upgrades - invoices by the current owner total over $38,000. These include Colorado-legal Window Tint treatment, an Evo3 spoiler w/ carbon flap, Euro Grill, Blackout Emblem, and Hella Smileys. Otherwise, it's bone stock on the exterior. Interior wise, the original seats were replaced with leather Recaro SRDs on custom sliders, but otherwise, the interior is stock. The M3 has an award-worthy sound quality audio system installed in it. It was done by Simplicity in Sound out of Milpitas, CA and is comprised of Illusion Audio & Mosconi components, and an Alpine Headunit with a custom sub enclosure at the passenger floorboard. The car has a Clifford Alarm installed as well. As far as servicing over the last few years, there's almost too many records to list. Included is a binder filled with its maintenance history going all the way back to 1996, as well as 10-15 emails with invoices from various shops (different build stages) showing all of the repairs made to the car. The vehicle title showed a theft way back in 1991 and had a branded title accordingly when the vehicle was recovered 3 months later. There is no record of accidents with the vehicle. Here's a general list of modifications: ViPec V44 ECU and Custom Harness Evo3 Air Intake VAC Port/Polish ITB Horns VAC 48mm Ported TBs 276/276 Shrick Camshafts VAC 50/50 Headers VSR Center Section (cats replaced 2016) Stromung Exhaust Marc Norris Oil Pan Baffle Evo3 Flywheel Rebuilt Clutch w/ Sport Disc BMW V8 Engine Mounts BMW 6-series Trans Mounts VAC Performance Electric Fan Samco Hose Kit Performance Ignition Wires Treehouse Racing Eyeball Bushings Ground Control Coilover Kit (440/625) Ground Control Hybird Camber Plates (Front) VAC Rear Shock Tower Mounts VAC Better Braking Kit Driveshaft Shop One Piece Driveshaft OZ vintage 3 piece wheels with lip Lastly, the car has two fun modifications ... A George Graves Voltmeter (utilizes LEDs in dash), and a 2-drink Cupholder. Presently the vehicle does not have any immediate needs. Due to some very stiff suspension/mounts, and a one piece driveshaft, the car vibrates slightly from ~76-80mph. There is also a small creaking noise when suspension is under load from top spring plate and the strut mount but this does not affect performance. The vehicle is cosmetically very nice and any exterior flaws are almost unnoticeable. There is one small flaw on the surface of one wheel but no rash. Tires are in excellent condition. Interior is immaculate with exception of very mild browning along the driver's left foot rest. All windows and sunroof operate as desired. The vehicle runs a little bit rough at cold start for 2 minutes but when warm it performs masterfully. Over $15k in records performed here at Avalon Motorsports by our BMW master certified technicians. Price includes $299 dealer handling, taxes and licensing extra.
