Default E36 M3 '96 Hellrot Manual Coupe

BMW E36 M3 S52 Coupe - Hellrot Red.

Price: $9k ono

- Color: Red/black leather
- Mileage: 208,3xx miles
- 4 owners (me: 4th owner)

- Mechanically, 100% stock.

I bought the car 2 years ago. It's the lux package and is in great condition. I get complimented on it almost every time I go out in it, and I'm very sad to see it go, but it's time for someone else to enjoy it.

The car has had a huge amount of maintenance over the past 2 years that I've owned it. I have to valet park it in my building in downtown SF, and as such, it needs to be super reliable; I've spent lots on ensuring that, while also improving it cosmetically. It's in considerably better condition now, than when I got it two years ago, but could still do with a few futureproofing exercises.

Stand out maintenance/improvements (all maintenance can be found in the sheet linked below):
- 4 brand new Michelin Pilot SuperSport tires
- Genuine ZKW headlights
- Updated steering wheel - condition is brand new
- X-brace
- Suspension top mounting points (rear) welded and reinforced (TC Design).
- Front rotors and pads.
- Professionally recovered headlining - zero sagging!
- Clutch master + slave cylinder replaced
- Alternator replaced

In the interest of full disclosure, these are all the negatives I can think of with the car, all of which are pretty standard E36 items:
- The cooling system has not been done.
- The rear bumper and wing mirrors needs painting
- The front seats are patched and presentable, but need recovering to be perfect.
- The RTA bushings could do with replacing
- Door panels are rattling (as per standard E36 issues).
- Fog lights cracked.

I'd really like it to go to someone who'll look after it and cherish it as I have. I've looked after it respectfully, always warmed thoroughly before driving it like an M3! It is not a daily driver, so it doesn't sit in traffic, and as such, it runs great.

I can supply VIN/Plate and the carfax from 2 years ago when I bought it at upon request.
Viewings welcome, I'm in downtown San Francisco, 94105.

Contact me (Tom) via PM, or text at 415-271-four-four-seven-one. I'd be happy to chat on the phone, but please text first.

NOTE: the pics below show with standard headlights and ZKW headlights, both are supplied:


Strut tower reinforcement (both sides were done):
