View Full Version : 98 M3 for sale

08-12-2009, 09:06 AM
I have decided that I will sell my 98 M3 - I really wouldl like to buy a 2002tii and now is a good time for me to proceed.

I will tell you up front the car was repaired in 2002 (rear end damage) and has a rebuild title on it.
I had my mechanic check it out - he found no issues - the car runs straight as an arrow! - the car is my daily driver!

DETAILS (some pics attached)

Dakar Yellow
Alcantra interior (immaculate and almost 0 wear)
factory tint
various minor repairs done (front brakes, battery etc to about $2K)
paint very good (no rust) but trunk lid a bit faded
Michelan pilot sport A/S in very good shape
bmw cd with new Alpine amp
motor is quiet, smooth, clutch good
selling certified and ready to license
Zenon headlight conversion (low beam)
regular oil changes (5-6K) with Quaker synthetic
staggered light weights (except spare) good shape
no other modifications other than stereo (bmw business cd)

cruise not working - I dont need it and never worried about it
fog lights crack (fn stones) but work - can fix
I believe that 4 people have owned this car

I keep REALLY GOOD CARE of my cars - I sell it with confidence as a reliable M3 - the car is seriously worth what I am selling it for.

Looking for $9800 (certified ready to go)

please do not expect a reply if you are a low baller - I do not wish to repsond to insults.

Anyone with a restored 2002tii pm me if you want to trade.

regards Davis

Do you have the picture when it was smacked up?

08-12-2009, 11:11 PM
yea how bad was the damage??

08-13-2009, 08:47 AM
the car was rebuilt in 2002 from what I could find out - I dont know the exact extent of what was done (rear quarter) , but I can tell you a storey of my own, which gave me some perspective.

some time ago son damaged my 95ti (front end damage) - the car was towed to Carstar. Their comment was something like this.........

there is really nothing wrong that cant be fixed but the between new parts and the labor to fix it the cost exceeds what vehicle is worth (not exact quote) - the insurance wrote it off -

I had a couple offers from people who wanted to buy the Ti and fix it... interesting - I guess as long as repairs are done correctly (that can be determined) the car would be reliable and safe to drive.

7.6L /100km that is awsome mileage.

08-13-2009, 05:07 PM
I did'nt think it was exceptional - II think our 330 cab gets about that, maybe slightly less - highway I'm talking

08-13-2009, 05:19 PM
thats is 3.0 or 3.2 or canada version have only one engine??? Looks like EUR clocks *smoke*

08-13-2009, 05:22 PM
i doubt that obc is correct, is it the stock OBC or did you upgrade, mine says the same and there's no way it's correct

since it's a 98 it's a 3.2 US spec

08-14-2009, 12:06 PM
I really want to buy this car, Effff

08-14-2009, 12:36 PM
I use the obc quite frequently when I'm on the highway - seems to match fairly closely to the speedo gauge so I have no reason to doubt it - my 94 325 also had an 18 button unit - it worked fine also

I took the M in on friday to have the brakes inspected - all looks ok but will fix a rattling brake pad on rear (2 new rear pads will be installed)

fronts squeal sometimes but are fine as per mechanic (piss off)

Here are some pics of the rear suspension and the underside of the M - the heat shield was bent (fking speed bumps) and was fixed.

Any questions please email me

I am back from my mini (32nd aniversery) vacation so anyone who wishes to see the car please call my cell (519-573-0720)

the car is available to view this week by appointment

regards Davis
