Not all of the euro's come with cloth, the first owner probably opted for leather option so it came with leather.

Ah ok. i was just wondering. thanks

This is a fantastic price for this car: extremely low mileage examples have gone for upwards of $35,000 - $40,000 even in this miserable market.

Best of luck with the sale! *th-up*

Thanks for the kind words!

I really don't want to let her go for so little, I mean, US M3's are going for just a little bit less and considering how many new parts are on my car.

But, having said that, this miserable market dominates what people perceive as a "fair" price and I have had some ridiculous offers and even people trying to tell me what it's worth/laughing at the price (when I had it at 18,500).

There is no right price for a limited edition car, I don't think people understand that.

04-12-2010, 10:29 PM
I guess some people don't understand that even if they were to import one of these it would cost them at least about what ur asking price is,besides all the headaches and the run around.

I would love to buy this but im looking towards importing an evo in the next couple of months.

How can you import an EVO when they aren't 15 years old yet?

04-13-2010, 01:02 AM
because you can. the bumper laws are relaxed.

ive seen a few evos around.

Will also include a jug of Lubro Moly 10-60 (this stuff is over $100 per jug) BMW Coolant and 4 OEM Mahle Filters

Cooling system maintenance?
what about the vanos? (rebuilt? new?)


04-17-2010, 01:28 PM
No need to fix stuff that isn't broken especially the Vanos.
Vanos makes no noise, car starts quiet. New Chain tensioner so idles very quiet as well.

04-17-2010, 01:32 PM
Thanks for the info.

what about cooling system maintenance ?

04-17-2010, 03:30 PM
karl... for a second i re thought my M3... but then i remembered Estoril > everything :P One day ill swap the 3.2L euro motor in however :)

04-17-2010, 05:11 PM
just throwing an option !

04-17-2010, 08:35 PM
Nelson, sell yours, buy mine, paint it Estoril and you'll have the best of everything (fresh paint, fresh wheels, fresh suspension, original euro motor, a limited edition car, steering wheel to die for etc.) and it'll still cost you less in the long run (swapping a 3.2 etc)

04-18-2010, 09:36 PM
pardon the ignorance; I may just be uneducated; but isn't there supposed to be a trim plate on the dash showing the car # where you have that carbon fibre peice?

04-18-2010, 09:36 PM
its in the glove box

04-20-2010, 07:53 PM

04-21-2010, 12:02 AM
Omg!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!*mw**mw**mw** mw**mw**mw**mw*

I honestly want this soooooooooo bad! Like this is my dream. If the bank will give me a loan, I'll be up there to see it!

04-21-2010, 05:45 AM
beautiful car! but how come there's power seats in the first set of pictures and manual seats in the second set?

04-21-2010, 09:51 AM
Thanks. I changed the seats because these were in better condition and I didn't care much for electric seats. I actually prefer manual seats.

04-21-2010, 02:05 PM
good eye! i noticed the better condition and just figured he had treated the seats. lol

04-21-2010, 09:05 PM
Beautiful car and nice mods, do you work at toyota by any chance?

04-21-2010, 11:13 PM
Thank you. I do not work at Toyota.

04-28-2010, 10:14 PM
My rear wing is not what most look like by the way.
It is a BMW Motorsport wing, no third brake light and factory stamped.

Old pic when I first got the car.

224k is considered low milage to you? not trying to hyjack or put the car down. Car does look great and I'd love to have a real m3 (euro) but i highly doubt it would ever sell for 40gs!

But for the car that it is, and the mods that it has, I would defenatly say this car is worth every penny! And no way would i even consider turning this down due to kms! Awsome car!!!


04-30-2010, 12:10 AM
I think you took his post the wrong way.

He is saying extremely good examples(with low mileage) have gone for 40gs.

NOT this car. this car is priced in the right area for the mileage.

Finally got my brand new front coilover back from Bilstein as I had it warrantied along with a re oiled/sealed rear strut.

The whole suspension system is practically new as of last year and the front is practically new as of now. The front has brand new Control arms, inner outer Tie rods, sway bar end links, solid Tree house LCABs, Strut, springs, etc.

Here are the pics of the coilover so what I'm saying isn't just saying



Should be getting it installed today. I don't think there more refreshed Euro out there right now considering with all the new suspension components it's got. The buyer is really reaping the benefits of basically brand new PSS9 coilovers along with brand new R888, brand new re furbished wheels etc etc.

Will get pics of the car on the ground asap.

05-18-2010, 09:51 AM
Update on pics: as it sits now with all new goodies and refurbed wheels, pics don't do justice.
