Seller Description

Up for sale is my beloved M coupe. After driving the car only a couple hundred miles over the last couple summers, I just can't justify letting it sit in my garage any longer. If you're on this forum you know how rare this car is, but just for the record this is 1 of 23 in this color combination.

Hi-res pictures here:

The good

No accidents or paint work
Interior is immaculate
No mechanical issues

Bilstein / H&R sport suspension
BBS RK-II 17" wheels with Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3 tires (tires basically new)

Rear wiper delete

Parts/etc that will go with the car:
Stock exhaust
Stock suspension
Stock differential
Rear wiper assembly
OEM car cover
Bentley manual

The bad
Car will be due for service 2 in a few thousand miles
Rotors will probably need to be done around that time as well

The ugly
The previous owner DE'ed the car and did road trips from Ohio down to BMW Homecoming, and as such there are plenty of paint chips (no dings or dents). The tint bubbled on the drivers side window and needs to be repaired / replaced. One of the bulbs behind the HVAC controls is burnt out and I have the replacement plus a spare, but haven't gotten around to installing it. I scraped one of the front bumper lips while parking. If you want a show car, a respray of the front end would be in order. If you want something to actually use, the car is still stunning to look at and even better to drive.

I am the 3rd owner, and have had the car for about 7 years and 3500 miles. The previous owner was an enthusiast and regular poster on bimmerforums. I have not had a single mechanical issue with the car during my ownership, I've kept the fluids fresh and that's all it has required. The subframe was checked before I bought it and there were no issues. I will ship at buyer's expense.

I'm asking $32,000 and am accepting offers. Interested parties can contact me at andrew.morris AT

I stalked this coupe for a little while during my search for steel gray over imola. It has some nice modifications, and it's nice that the stock parts are also included. I think it's priced pretty well too compared to what else is available. Who wants to join the elite steel gray over imola club?
