My beautiful garage queen is up for sale again. I had changed my mind and decided to keep the car and was continuing to obsess over it but, as fate would have it, I just bought another E30 M3 today that kind of fell into my lap so this one has to go before winter comes.

Overview:
- VIN: WBSAK0304J2196808
- ~61K miles
- I was told that I am the 3rd owner. CARFAX shows 5 owners but I was told that the original owner registered it in Chicago and then moved back and forth between St. Louis and Tampa. I checked with CARFAX and they don't have any way to check.
- US car
- No accidents, body is in fantastic shape, no rust
- Original paint except for hood, rear spoiler, rocker panels (I had the paint measured everywhere to confirm this after I got the car)
- No rips, tears or cracks in the interior. I've gone over the leather a few times with leatherique since I got the car
- Everything works including converted A/C (nice and cold), OBC, all lights, etc.
- The one fault with this car is I only have the service records going back to 2005. I've been meaning to find someone in the US that works at a BMW dealer to see if they can find any earlier records but I hadn't got around to it.

This is one of the nicest low mileage E30 M3's around and needs nothing.

Two pricing options:
1. $29K - You get it the way it sits now along with the OEM parts so you could put it back to stock if you so desired at some point.
2. $25K - I will put it back to it's OEM state so no Hartge's, etc.

I have a very thorough appraisal from last year, an up-to-date CARFAX, recent compression test as well as lots of pics that I can provide upon request.

Here are some pics that were taken at Tedfest that include my car (#10 & #173-175):

Thanks for looking!

Wow, Sport Evo's are crazy expensive now! In any case, I should have another E30 M3 in my driveway next week so I've totally abandoned the Porsche idea :D

The one in that link appears to be going for $89K CDN if my conversion from swiss francs is correct.

What have they sold for in the past? Is $90K CDN a realistic price/value

From what I'm hearing, the demand in Europe is strong and many US people don't think there will be many nice E30 M3's, especially Evo versions, coming across in 3 years when they can import them.

Well, I wish someone local would buy it as I'd rather it stay up here. In any case, I love having two for now while the weather is nice and I don't need to worry about storage.

Here are some updated pics of the car converted back to stock. Stock tires were bought in '07 and have almost no mileage.

I'm willing to sell them if I get a reasonable offer as I have other rims that I may use for the new ride.

Just to clarify, the car is now $25K since it's back to original. For that price, I will also include the following extras that I have:

- new BMW Noah cover
- strut bar
- Alpine head unit (original also included)
- brand new BMW illuminated shift knob (Turner)

The car needs nothing and the a/c works great!

I'll probably end up doing that soon. I haven't bothered yet because I was hoping somebody local would buy the car as I'd rather it stayed here than it go back to the US.

If this was only 6 months from now I'd be seriously considering this. New house and getting married next week are tying up all my money for the next little bit. Any pictures of the interior?
