    I am going back down to 2 cars, hence the M3 is up for sale.

    I’ve spent a lot of money on this car to get it up close to the standards I think these cars should be at.

    2003
    Carbon Schwartz
    just been paint corrected and ceramic coated
    106k FSH got stacks of receipts and a big folder full of history. Running in service on time
    SMG II w/CSL software drives buttery smoothly
    Heated Imola Nappa
    Sat Nav TV
    Harmon Kardon
    Sunroof

    Maintenance done - rock solid car:
    Subframe reinforced
    Beisan Vanos refresh
    Head Gasket done
    Rod Bearings done
    New clutch
    Paint corrected
    I had the front end and mirror bases resprayed so paint was perfect prior
    Ceramic coated

    OEM+ was my goal so I have also done the following in my ownership over the last 9 months:
    Bilstein B12 suspension drives beautifully smooth, no knocks or bangs
    New OEM front grills
    New OEM side grills
    New OEM headlight lenses and rubber gaskets
    New OEM arch liners
    New OEM cupholders and coin tray
    New OEM fuel filler cap
    New OEM plinth
    New OEM spec battery
    New OEM CSL SMG Alcantara shifter
    New CSL steering wheel Alcantara retrim
    New Brushed Aluminium extended paddle shifters
    OEM Brushed Aluminium interior trim
    New MirrorJohn rear view oval mirror
    OEM LED taillights
    Euro exhaust tips
    slightly bigger than OEM items
    12mm hubcentric spacers all round
    SuperSprint Resonated X-Pipe

    There’s probably more but I just cant remember right now.

    It’s a quality M3 (I have had 7 now so I know what’s tatty and what’s the common problems) with all the big jobs done and the paint protection /rust prevention carried out as of last week!

    Drives as good as any M3 I have had, the SMG works like a dream with the CSL software on it - smooth or as savage as you like in S5/6

    The M3 private registration will come with the car if asking price is secured.

    £12,999
    London/Essex

    If your mate is looking for one £13k for this car *with all major jobs done is a bargain!!

    He needs to up his budget anyway to find a good one!- tell him to view this car and just get it bought!! If it means borrowing abit more it will pay off anyway!

    Yawn. 2021 still 2 years away

    You either want it or not

    Clearly not enough

    Don't waste the guys time. Go get yourself a Focus TDI

    Faz you’re mad selling this unless it really is just space you need. So much time, effort and money getting it to this point!

    Seems too cheap for the work undertaken. Someone will get a crazy good bargain.


    What’s any of this got to do with this for sale thread? LOL

    Thanks for the kind comments, gents.

    Keith, not in a desperate rush to sell...as stated I have spent a fair amount on the car in a relatively short period of time. But it doesn’t get used and I wouldn’t mind a CSL at some stage so it wouldn’t be a long term keeper anyway.

    It’s a really nice car and feels bullet proof but I have quite a few road trips planned in the GT3 for the rest of this year

    Just checking in to say that’s a bloody lovely M3, even on 18’s . GLWS, whoever buys this will get a keeper.
