FS: 1997 BMW M3 Turbo

Hi all,

Update: The car was taken off the market last Sep after I discovered a coolant leak starting to develop. I had hoped to have more time to button her back up for the road and in the meantime, convince my wife that it was worth keeping. Unfortunately, neither happened and the car sat in the garage for the past year as work/married life ramped up. Now it's back up for sale, just in time for someone to pick up a winter project. Please note that I haven't diagnosed the problem yet nor is it likely I'll be able to do so before the car sells. Of course, I'd be more than willing to have any interested buyer check it out. I've updated the price to reflect.

It's time to move on to greener pastures. Although I had hoped to keep the car for many years to come it's time to part ways with my beloved turbo e36 m3/4/5. I'm getting married soon and need to get rid of my toys for the time being. Hopefully I’ll be in the seat of another e36 when things settle down again. I bought this car from ///M3turbo (on bimmerforums) back in 2010 and it’s been a joy to drive since. The people who have seen my car can attest to how clean it is.

I have all the receipts and maintenance logs from my ownership as well as records from the previous owners. It has been meticulously maintained throughout its life, has always been garaged, and has never seen snow.

Although I’d like to sell the car, it’s important that it go into the hands of someone who will appreciate owning such an incredible machine. It’s easily one of the most fun cars I’ve had the pleasure to drive.

The title is clean and the car is located near Boston, MA.

Asking price is $11,000

I've only met Rob once during a meet-up that was about two years ago now, but I can attest to the fact that he's a great guy and that I spent much time ogling this very E36. Awesome ride!

Damn, that rides bangin'. Whoever lands this is a lucky person, that price is decent considering all the goodies you've got in it. Good luck on the sale man.
