Seller Description

Here for sale is my beloved 1999 M coupe. I have owned this car for three and a half years and it has been nothing but a pleasure and a privilege to own. For those who do not know M Coupes are extremely rare cars (less than 3,000 sold in North America). I have put about 20,000 miles on it during my ownership. It has been very reliable and actually gets pretty decent gas mileage. E36/8s are polarizing and turn heads everywhere you take it. The community is wonderful and anyone lucky enough to own one of these understands how great the experience is. The reason for selling this car is simply because I want another one with an S54 under the hood.

-110,000 miles
-S52 motor w/ 5 speed manual transmission
-Clean title
-Imola red over Imola Red
Entire car is in excellent condition inside and out. It has no mechanical Issues and was properly maintained in the 3 and a half years of my ownership. This is a 4 owner car, all of which have been enthusiasts who appreciated and took care of it. I have the maintenance records dating the entire cars life.

This car was just repainted by Premier Auto Repair LLC in Philadelphia, PA. It was not in an accident, I had a wrap on it with bodywork underneath, when I took the wrap off, it needed to be resprayed. The paint looks brand new.

Price reduced all the way to $21,000 from $23,000. With the subframe reinforcement and new paint, it seems like a steal for a great driver.

Price reduced to $23,000 and the stock suspension has been reinstalled. Still a great deal!

It now has brand new, perfect imola red paint and no hatch spoiler. I left the old photos on the listing, so you can recognize it. It looks quite a bit different than when it was originally listed. I think it's a pretty good deal.

I've always liked this coupe. It's technically imola red, but the wrap is very true to steel gray making it my personal favorite color combo. The Hartge wheels look great on it, and the subframe reinforcement is obviously a big plus as well. Also note that it can be had with the stock wheels and suspension for $25k.
