Default My 1999 Hellrot M3 for your...



After a few years as caretaker, it’s time for me to part ways with this fantastic 1999 M3. I purchased the car from a meticulous owner in Denver and had a PPI done at a local shop (shout out to Doug @ Paddock Imports). The first thing Doug said to me when I asked how the inspection went was, ‘dude, this M has a good soul’. He was spot on. I drove the car back to Southern California and have enjoyed every minute caring for this e36. Now with two kids under two years old, I’m looking to trade for four doors – prefer e12, e28, e34, e39, or e30. M or non-M. Manual only.

A bit about this adult driven, garage kept, rust-free M3, VIN WBSBG9331XEY80386, with 173K miles and a clean title…

Drivetrain

Zero oil, coolant, trans or differential leaks. Light oil consumption commensurate with mileage. No CEL. Fully functional OBC with no display issues. My fluid combo with this one has been Mobile1 15W50, BMW coolant, Swepco in the trans, and Redline in the diff. All modifications to this car have been made with a factory theme, and most were completed by previous owners. I’ll list upgrades in this post, see documentation for recent maintenance.
  • ZM3 large radiation upgrade, stock fan deleted, Spal electric fan (since I have owned the car, it has never operated outside normal temperature range, the needle won’t budge after the car has warmed up, no matter the driving/weather conditions)
  • aFe intake, 3.5” Euro MAF, Bimmerworld elbow, M50 manifold, Dinan pink-top injectors, Dinan S3 tune
  • ZM3 shift lever, new bushings after recently replaced clutch (OEM Sachs unit), BMW knob
  • Turner aluminum driveshaft
  • Dinan V2 catback exhaust

Suspension
  • Koni yellows, Eibach springs (I believe 1” lower), camber plates, Dinan strut tower brace
  • Meyle HD lower control arms
  • Mission Motorsport aluminum underbody brace plate
  • Square DS-1 setup (I traded for these as they’re my favorite for the e36) plus spare, also have a spare stock DS-2
  • Pilot Supersports with plenty of tread

Body
  • Virtually dent free, straight panels
  • Professional paint correction two years ago, still a very deep shine and glass-like surface
  • All window trim replaced three years ago
  • 4000K HIDs

Interior
  • Euro3 steering wheel wrapped by shepott
  • Heated manual vaders
  • Pioneer head unit and amplifier, upgraded rear speakers
  • Rubber trunk mat
  • No dash warping, imperceptible glovebox sag

Documentation

When the car moves on, so will her records.
  • Service manual
  • Performance upgrade manual
  • Owner’s manual
  • Binder of records dating back to 1999, including most recent dyno sheet and suspension settings.
  • Attached is the spreadsheet I’ve used to document service during my ownership.

Weaknesses

In general, everything on this M works as designed (lights, windows, switches, etc). I believe in full transparency to make sure the next owner is happy. The couple issues with this car exist due to prior mods.
  • HIDs cause an OBC beam failure warning when turned on, even with what I thought were the right resistors. Doesn’t bother me but should be noted. The warning is easily surpassed by pressing the ‘check’ button and quickly became a habit for me.
  • ASC light is permanently on but hardly noticeable (see dash picture) due to aftermarket intake elbow and ASC valve delete.
  • Headliner is just starting to sag a tad

Appreciate your time in reading through this post and look forward to trading with a fellow enthusiast. I am open to selling the car, but not my first choice.
Let's keep these gems in the family!

More pictures attached.

Please PM me if interested. Cheers.
