The car is garaged at my home in Livermore, CA at the present time. I will do my best to answer any questions, provide needed pics, contact owner for other info if available. Unfortunately, the owner did not keep receipts or records of the service or modifications performed on the car.

FWIW, I've been a longtime SCCA and BMWCCA member, and have known the owner of this car 20+ years, and attest to the love he has for the car, and the efforts in maintaining it's performance. I've driven the MCoupe around the past few weeks, and really marvel at how well it handles, and the 315+ enhanced HP certainly pulls hard and smooth. Jumping from my M2 to this little MCoupe is quite a contrast, and I admit I've become a bit soft in the performance area, but that little car is still pretty exciting.

Hope the pics I post do it some justice, there are a few dings, but body is quite straight, some road rash on the front end from years of highway commute, but still a beautiful body and very solid. Thank you for listening!

Listed for real now with photos and a new price of $29,500 down from $30,000. It's full of good upgrades and looks really nice for the very high mileage.
