Seller Description

My 2000 Silver on Black M Coupe has to go ASAP.
*I already have a few offers around 10k.
This has to be sold by next week.

Here's the deal.

I had a audio system put in about 6 years ago. I quickly decided against having it, uninstalled the whole thing and sold it to another M Coupe owner.

When the audio system was installed, the installers somehow drilled a hole 2/3 of the way through the aluminum end-tank of the heater core. 6 months later while driving, my leg started burning from hot coolant leaking from the heater core, so I immediately stopped the car and had it towed home. I drained the coolant and had the heater core repaired (welded the hole closed). The heater core was pressure tested, is reinstalled behind the dash, and is in perfect operating order.

Before I filled the car with coolant I wanted to get the center console back in the car (still removed from the audio system uninstall and heater core removal). I got frustrated and didn't finish before I left for a trip which had me out of the country for 1 year. Its been more than a year since my return and I still haven't touched it.

One problem has arose due to my stupidity, before abandoning the job and leaving for Europe, I left the drain plug out of the radiator. The car sat for more the two years without a drain-plug. Because of this the thermostat has seized closed. Upon startup the motor runs beautifully, and this is on old gas to boot. However, because of the thermostat issue, the car begins to over heat after about 10 minutes. This is definitely the only mechanical issue.

*There is also a little bit of damage to the passenger sider rear fender lip (my ex's mother backed into it)

Car needs:
Center Console needs to be reinstalled (all pieces on hand)
Thermostat needs to be replaced or cleaned
Passenger side rear fender needs a little massaging into shape

*I can potentially get the fender repaired or partially repaired before it is picked up. I can also have the thermostat replaced before pickup. (The m coupe runs and drives flawlessly and will drive across country with a new thermostat)

Car has:
-Brand New KW Variant 3 Coilovers with Camber plates and Rogue Engineering rear shock mounts (300 miles on KW coilovers, old suspension in hand)
-4 Point Roll cage (needs paint)
-ProjectorZ Projector Headlights with DDE Angel Eyes and High/Low HID
-Clear Front Side Markers
-Paint is flawless, except for needed repair on fender
-Stock Rims are almost perfect 9.5/10
-Black Interior
-Gorgeous door panel pods with 3-way JL XR components Speakers and 2-way JL XR Components in the back.
-JL 450/4 Amp

Please call me asap if your interested. She just needs a little TLC.
The car is about 45 miles from Philadelphia (18938)

Sold 8/26/10 - Sold to a Bimmerforums member in VA. Congrats!

This sounds like it could be a great project for some one. He does not specifically state an asking price just that it needs to sell fast and he has had offers "around 10k". The KW Variant 3 coilovers, camber plates and RSMs were easily $2500+. It sounds like it's in good condition otherwise. I'm excited to see the photos.
