This is my own M Coupe, purchased new on 5/14/99. To be blunt, I am selling this car because I no longer want or need the power and performance it offers. Instead, I need a car with automatic transmission and a little higher profile in traffic. I am the only owner and seldom let anyone else drive it. No one has ever smoked in this car. Maintenance is up to date, with documentation for a potential buyer to see if desired. It's been kept in a garage since purchase.
The current tires are only 3 years old and in great condition. They are 'Michelin Pilot Super Sport' tires with a 30,000 mile/ 6yr limited warranty. Added December 18, 2012: A new battery was installed in July of 2014. There are custom made sheep skin covers over the black leather seats. These were put on due to some allergies I was having at the time, but can be removed by a new buyer (the original leather seats are still underneath and undamaged by the addition of the sheepskin covers. However, keep in mind the sheep skin, once removed cannot be put back on due to the custom fit. I prefer the straight leather, but the sheep skin is nice to sit down on during the hot summers here in FL.
This car has never been in an accident. In 2005 there was one fender bender where a garbage truck, backing down the street adjacent to my driveway, came down the street on the wrong side and clipped my right front fender/bumper. My Insurance covered the repairs (the city did nothing), and you can't see any residual sign of the damage.
In 2005 I stopped working and stopped putting much mileage on the car. As far as wear and tear goes, I have managed to chip a few areas of the exterior paint now and then, and I currently see some scratches that I wasn't aware of. Nothing major considering the car is almost 16 years old. The nice thing about the original M coupe is a buyer could continue with low mileage and conscientious upkeep and this car will continue to appreciate in value.
The original owners manual is included. The title is clear.
