FS: 1997 BMW M3/4 door, 5 speed



Located in Vancouver, BC

For sale is my 1997 BMW M3 four door, five speed. Fairly rare car, especially a Canadian manufactured edition. Owned for its entirety on the North Shore. I bought it May 2008 and it has never let me down, it’s a great car but it’s too nice to drive for the winter so I am looking for something else. Always filled up with 92 or higher octane, this car was babied. Washed twice a month, waxed twice a year.

1997 BMW M3, $12,500
Four doors, Five speed
151,500 KM
Canadian car
Arctic Silver, black leather interior
All stock, no aftermarket modifications
S52 engine, 240 hp, 240 lb/ft tq.
Power, heated luxury seats in good condition
Two sets of wheels with tires: five (including spare) 17 inch M Forged polished LTWs with summer tires, four 17 inch CSA wheels with winter tires (on car right now).
Fully loaded:
Power sunroof, 18 button OBC, dual climate control, non-wood interior, three spoke steering wheel, factory 6 disc CD changer, fold down rear seats.
Genuine BMW Roof rack, full tool kit
Two sets of keys and keyless remotes, original owner's manual
Aircared December 4

All work done at Nixon Automotive:
Oil and filter change every 5k Kilometres
Oil and filter just changed last week
Replaced front springs 10,000 KM ago
Purge valve replaced, new shifter knob 20,000 KM ago
Heavy duty rear shock mounts 20,000 KM ago
New Guibo 25,000 KM ago
Power steering hose clamps, spark plugs, brake fluid and cooling system flush 25,000 KM ago
Replaced muffler mounts 25,000 KM ago
Compression numbers all very close to 190, tested 25,000 KM ago

I will let the prospective buyer know that it was in a front end accident about two months ago. Fairly minor damage but it was repaired right. All the work was done at Korva Collision in Vancouver and it looks as good as new. No rock chips anywhere.

Car also comes with LTWS

BC car.

Yes, it was repaired on the driver's side. For it to be perfect, a new driver's side headlight and foglight would need to be purchased.
