Default 1988 M3 15k Original Miles , Maintenance

Hello,

I'm a longtime vintage Porsche owner and have recently acquired my first BMW, a 1988 E30 M3. The car has 15k original miles and is in very nice condition, obviously it hasn't been driven much but has had annual oil changes and minor maintenance.

I have record of the gas tank and fuel pump being changed and the driveshaft bearings being replaced.

At this point due to it's age I would like to go through the car mechanically to insure all systems are 100% and all services are up to date.

I'm asking the forum's assistance in compiling a list of jobs/items that should be addressed/checked.

Thanks,

JF

Thanks,

JF

History:

This M3 was originally delivered to its first owner Corey J. Haim the child actor/movie star (The Lost Boys) in Los Angeles, CA in December 1988. Corey kept the car until late 1989 at which point it was sold and exported to a private collector in Japan. I re imported into the USA in May of this year. Only driven sparingly over the years the car currently has 15,650 miles.

Condition & Maintenance:

Although the car arrived from Japan with extensive service history (in Japanese) I decided to embark on a comprehensive mechanical re commissioning due to the cars age and low miles (invoices available on request). Below is a list of work recently completed with OEM Parts:

New Gas Tank, Fuel Pump & Drive Shaft Bearing (fitted in Japan)

Changed all fluids & filters (Redline Oils)

Valve Adjustment

New Alternator

New Battery

New Spark Plugs.

New Coolant Expansion Tank & Thermostat.

New Windshield Washer Reservoir

New Drive Belts

Serviced the Instrument Cluster with New SSI Board

Completely serviced the brake system and replaced any parts required, pads and rotors show +75% wear remaining.

Serviced the A/C System with R12

Replaced front lip spoiler

Sourced correct OEM newly refurbished wheels and center caps added new Yokohama S Drive tires including the spare.

A comprehensive paint and interior detail has also been completed.

The car has received some paint work during it’s time in Japan, it shows no evidence of accident damage or rust and the paint shows very well.

The car is completely stock, unmodified and as delivered, apart from OEM ROW/EURO Front Fender Side Marker Lights which were required for importation into Japan, to compliment these I added the OEM ROW/Euro Front Bumper Tow Hook Covers & the Rear License Plate Panel. It comes with a complete tool kit, jack etc… & M3 Owner’s Manual, with most of the original documents intact.

At this point the car is immaculate needs nothing and is ready for a new owner to enjoy.

Price $120,000

The car is located in Toledo, OH and has a lien free Ohio Title.

Wow! Very cool car and history. looks like it's in amazing shape, good luck getting it all sorted out. S14 or R3vlimited are probably the best forums to go to. Lol WTF is Corey Feldman wearing???
