New X-brace installed. It came new with a crappy, flakey paint job so I had it powder coated.

Thanks! All fluids levels are good. Battery is fine. It has been on a trickle charger. Good to know about ticking. Thought something was wrong there.

As a point of comparison, here is a 1997 Hellrot Sedan (5 speed) with 64K miles that just sold for $13,900. Downside is that it is a LUX. But a low mileage 4 door M3 in Hellrot has to be a hard to...
