Sold 7/1/11 - Sale pending. Someone got a great deal! Also, added one final send-off photo from the seller.
6/8/11 Update - Seller posted that his car is on a ship headed to the mainland.
5/31/11 Update - The car will be on Pasha Hawaii Transport Lines and will arrive in San Diego on June 14th. The seller added a note that he is open to having a local mechanic inspect it. Let me know the results if anyone has a PPI done.
5/29/11 Update - The owner is trying a new strategy that I'm pretty sure is going to work. He raised the price $1,000 to $17,000 and bringing it over to LA. If the location was what was holding you back, the situation is now fixed. The new larger photos look great too. I expect it to go pretty fast now at such a great price.
5/20/11 Update - Back on the market at just $16,000 (up from $15,000). Still a bargain!
11/24/10 Update - Not actually sold; seller decided to keep it for a while longer and took it off the market.
11/12/10 Update - It appears this coupe is back on the market and now at $15,000 rather than $16,000.
10/1/10 Update - I guess this coupe didn't sell back in June as here it is again with a few more miles, and the price has gotten even better.
6/22/10 Update - Seller updated his listing with some more information.
6/21/10 Update - Here's a review from IslandS62 who owns another Steel Gray M Coupe on Oahu.
This is likely the one I looked at Last year for jt1966. It was in respectable condition but had some poor fitting panels, one side had been painted in rather average quality and was in general the cleanliness level of a car this age. If this person bought it and cleaned it up a bit the condition and mileage description add up. When I test drove it it was stock and IMO in need of a clutch.
I think I know the original owner who was a Japanese national and always travelled in the car with a dog. He always had it dealer serviced, but if you know BMW of Honolulu that may or may not be a good thing. This was originally the car I thought I was going to see when I found mine at a Honda dealer in 2005.
There is now a third steel gray mcoupe running around but last I saw it was a year ago and it had CA plates. If it is that car it's history is unknown to me.
This seems to be owned by a knowledgable owner. Having the Inspection II done is very nice. He's honest about it's condition and the price is fair. It seems as if it's been well cared for mechanical but could have a few costmetic issues. For those wondering, shipping from Hawaii to California is around $1,000.
