Powertrain and chasis:

New RTABs
Stock 323 Clutch (checked when engine was swapped a year ago, plenty of life left)

Currently sitting on 16x8 BBS RK's (yes 16s that clear M3 brakes) (with Pirelli snowsport 210s) No other wheels.

The good:

Car runs flawlessly
Almost Mint Interior condition (wear and tear on the seats, no rips at all though)
Paint is in excellent condition

The bad:

3 small dents around the car (not noticeable from a distance)
3rd gear has trouble engaging when just starting to drive in very cold temps, 2nd attempt to engage always does the trick, once the tranny warms up its perfect)
some idiot hit my car while it was parked so driver side of the nose panel has some damage)
minor paint damage on rear M3 Bumper (the way i bought it)

Pics:

Public Album (some pics don't include current mods like m3 mirrors etc) :

What kind of money are you looking for? Sounds like your transmission is dying, which is a several thousand dollar fix.

How is a transmission (not a clutch) not a couple grand including labour? You're lucky to find a transmission by itself for high hundred dollars, if I'm not mistaken. A used one, just random google scouting, will go for 800. If the car is auto, its 2k. That's alot of money and I think it's totally fair for me to bring this up so people who are not mechanically inclined, to be aware of potential issues.

If seller can prove that this is not a transmission issue, I withdraw all my comments. I myself am in the market for a BMW and I know that the last thing you'd ever want is to replace a transmission on one of these cars.

For Starters, I can find you a transmission by itself all day long for $500.
Its 4 hours labor, and pretty much a DIY job if you are mechanically inclined.

Further more. The OP doesnt need to prove that it is not a transmission problem, its listed as a concern, the potential buyer would have due diligence to either take it as is, or have it looked at prior to purchasing.

Lastly. You are NOT in the market for a BMW, you are a troll, now goto bed, your mom wakes you up @ 7am to get ready for school. You are gonna be weally weally tired.*wave*
