Seller Description

FOR SALE: 1999 BMW M Coupe, Imola Red exterior, black leather interior, manual transmission, sunroof.  Clear New York State Motor Vehicle Title, with no liens.   I am the third owner, and purchased the car in May 2008 with 117k miles.  The car has been sparingly driven since I have owned it, and now shows 136,683 miles on the odometer.  The car has BMW’s S52 engine: rated from the factory at 240 hp and 236 ft lbs of torque.  (The car’s original owner added a Dinan ECU tune, which added 10 hp, and raised the top speed limit.) The car is in very good overall condition, and accelerates, brakes, and handles the way a BMW M Coupe should.  Mechanically, the engine is very strong, and runs great, with no leaks, oil consumption, check engine or other warning lights displayed, and no abnormal noises. The clutch was recently replaced with a Sach oem unit, and works excellent.   The oil has been regularly changed using BMW filters and fully synthetic oil. (either Mobil 1 or Amsoil)  All fluids have been changed including transmission, brake, differential and coolant. The brakes work great with plenty of pad and rotor life remaining, and no pulsing or squealing.  The tires are a set of matching Toyo Proxes 4, with plenty of tread life remaining.  The rims are in very good condition.  One has minor curb rash, but they are very good overall for the age of the car. The interior of the car is also very good. There are no cracks in the dashboard and no missing trim pieces.  The seats are in very nice condition.  The shifter knob needs replacement, and I will be including a lighted BMW ZHP replacement shift knob with the purchase of the car.  The HVAC system works fine, except that the blower fan will only run on the high and low settings.  The CD changer does not work.  The glove compartment door  sags like they all do and the catch straps need reattachment.  Overall, the exterior of the car is in great condition.  The paint is excellent, and there are few to no dents, dings, or scrapes.  The car did sustain front end damage in a collision with a guardrail. The airbags did not deploy. A professional quality repair was completed, which included replacement of the bumper and bumper cover, hood, radiator, trim pieces including two new headlights, and repainting.  The repair looks good, except that the bumper to hood gap is larger than it should be and the hood alignment is slightly off.  Also included: car cover, manuals, extra keys. The pictures in this auction are current and of the car for sale.  TERMS:  There is no express or implied warranty offered with this car.  Sold as is.   Shipping is not offered, though I am willing to work with Buyer’s shipper to facilitate pickup of the vehicle.  PAYMENT:  $1000 PayPal payment due within 24 hours of the end of this auction.  Balance due in cash,  or certified funds acceptable to Seller at time of delivery and transfer of title.  Vehicle is located in Syracuse, NY.  Please feel free to ask any questions by e-mail, and I will try to answer them.  Reason for Sale: buying newer BMW.

Seems like a good, upfront seller that took godo care of it. The recent new clutch is a plus as is the included ZHP shift knob.The accident history and higher miles are the downsides. It sounds like a very solid driver though.
