Seller Description

My wife and I have been thinking of selling our toy so that we can find a more family friendly sports car.  I have been building this car for 5 years, and have probably done almost every modification that anyone has suggested on Bimmerforums.  The car runs and drives beautifully, and it really makes me sad to even consider selling it.  I have finally sorted out all the noises/squeaks/error codes/engine problems/tire rubbing etc.  If anyone is looking for a turn key supercar, this is it. The car has awesome power and is very drivable. Even though the car has 195k miles, almost every single moving part has been replaced, and there is less than 2000 miles on the engine.  I would love to get $45k for it, which I know is a large amount of money, however I think one ride in the car will change anyone's opinion.

Added more to modification list

I've seen this coupe in person before the engine overhaul, and it was in ridiculously nice aesthetic condition. I can only imagined the care spent with the mechanicals. The maintenance/modification list makes this the longest listing ever :-). I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better sorted, high horsepower coupe. If it has not sold by then, it will also be at Dorkfest next month.
