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.
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
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

Since I bought it, I've replace the following:
Front Control arm (New OEM BMW)

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.
