Why is it for sale?
I just purchased a Father/Son project car to work on with my father and I need to free up the space.

General Overview:
Car is an excellent 'driver quality' car. This means it's reliable, in mechanically good shape and drives great; it also means that it has it's bumps and bruises. I want to be as honest as possible in both pictures and description. The car is 98% stock save AKG FCAB, clear markers, m3 color stripes on the driver front kidney

The good:
Clean title. The car not appear to ever been in any accidents (all stickers/vin tags intact)
It's very dependable and drives excellent
It pulls strong, shifts great and the diff is quiet
-I was told the clutch/flywheel were replaced around 105k but have no proof...
Since I bought it, I've replace the following:
Front Control arm (New OEM BMW)
FCAB- AKG (a little noisey  )
Both Tie Rod assemblies
Both Front Sway bar links and bushings
Front Brakes Pads - Hawk HPS
Front Brake Rotors
4 Bridgestone re-11a in factory sizes
Water Pump with metal prop*
Upper and lower coolant hose*
Metal Thermostat housing with Thermostat*
Fan Delete*
Whalen Solid Seat Bushing*
Glovebox Sag Fix
(*=have parts but not installed, but probably will be soon)

The Bad:
The front bumper is cracked/Scuffed
The hood is rock chipped
There is rust on the drivers door at the bottom
There is rust on the lower fender panel between the door and the front wheel (drivers side)
There are two small surface rust spots where the drivers rear side glass meets the quarter panel
Rust on both mirror bases
There are dings
There is a 1/16th" crack on the diff mount ear- has not grown since I bought it.
It needs shocks/struts to replace the current OEM setup. I wanted to run coilovers.
All wheels have peel clear and pitting; a little rash on a couple wheels

This is a drivers car that shows well from 7 feet away... its not perfect, please see the pictures.

The price is 13,500 and it's firm.

Car is located in St. Louis, Mo

It needs some aesthetic tlc, but would make an excellent driver as it has for the current owner. The recent maintenance and included parts are big plusses. I think the price is very fair.
