  • 1997 E36 M3
  • 4 door
  • 170,000
  • Automatic
  • Premium Package
  • Gray with Black Interior
  • Everything looks stock. Cassette player and all. This was a positive as I plan to do all the work to get it to drive-worthy myself.
  • Engine feels strong on the road. Idle is super smooth.
  • No accidents, body, wheels, etc in amazing condition given age. 1 small door ding, clearcoat faded on top portion of bumper
  • 1-owner for 20 years. Then sold to a friend that sold it to me. So technically 2 owners. Limited paperwork.
  • Interior is pretty good. Front seat leather is beyond repair, so new seat needed. A few other repairs, new parts, and washing needed on inside to clean up. BTW the wood is pretty cheesy. Need to do something about that. Though I do love the leather door frames.
  • Contours are in really nice shape. Maybe the smallest amount of road rash on each wheel.
  • Front number has small crack at bottom, most likely from scraping something
  • No spots of rust so far
  • Small rock chip in window on far right (no cracking just a crater), will see if Safelight can repair
  • Price: $5,200. A bit more than I wanted to pay, but the condition and 1-owner were amazing selling points to me. Plus I was not going to let this baby pass me by.

Pictures to come:

Finished paint correction and ceramic coat on my recently aquired PY E46. Also added new grilles all around. The color is absolutely stunning at dusk.

Nice. Thatís ThunderMooseís old car. He sold it to the guy you bought it from, who is a reseller/flipper. Moose maintains his cars pretty well, so hopefully you donít run into issues. I regret not buying it. Enjoy it in good health!

Edit: At some point, it was missing the fog light plastic surround. If still missing, I have a set that you can have.

Great thanks for the info! Very clean transaction, most recent owner is a very nice guy who basically changed the fluids and parked it on a battery tender. He had all the records, receipts, etc from Moose. It was well sorted mechanically about 25k miles ago. Just needed some TLC inside and out. Runs like a champ.

Edit: has the surrounds but thanks for the offer!

Thanks! The paint is not perfect, but it has cleaned up nicely. I just need to drive it more....

I am in Dallas, so no where near Socal.
