Hey everyone. I'm officially posting up my pride and joy for sale. This truly is a sad sad day as I don't want to let her go but its time to move into a car that's more family oriented as I have a couple little ones on the way! :thumbsup2:
Here are the details. The car is a 2002 BMW M3 with just under 78k miles on the clock. The original color is Steel Grey Metallic, but has now been painted a custom white with blue pearl. Let me make this clear. There are plenty of show cars that have been built that basically can no longer daily drive. We built this car to both be daily driven as well as win shows. I have around 50 trophies from various shows, mainly Hot Import Nights competitions. AT least 35 of these being either first place or Best of Show awards.
The car has been featured in about 6 magazines around the world and was just recently featured in a French magazine and shot again for Eurotuner magazine with the new color.
I am currently out of town but will be back on Monday and will take pictures of the magazine features and snap a pic of the trophies. First off here is a link of my Eurotuner feature from last Janurary:
The pictures there will show the interior as well as the ICE in the trunk.
Next is the spec sheet. There may be a couple things that I'm missing, but all in all that's about sums up the mods. You guys should be able to get an idea of how much was invested into this car.

Yes I understand that there are plenty of e46 m3's for sale for lower miles, and newer for what I'm asking. But this car is not for everyone. This car is for someone who wants an e46 m3 fully built and ready to enjoy, take to shows, or just to have a car that is unique and stands out from other m3's.
I would like to entertain offers of 35k and above. Of course I'm willing to negotiate. I have a tech at BMW of Dallas that I only trust to touch the car now, and at this price I will take to him to to look over the car to check for any problems with the car.
It is up to you to arrange transport or to come check the car out if you are out of town. I really would prefer to sell the car to someone who will take care of this car, b/c that is how I have treated it since I've owned the car. Anyone that knows me or has seen me can probably attest to that. I do not run the car hard, nor do I race the car. The car has never been tracked, nor did I ever intended it to. I don't want to write a novel about this so please feel free to shoot over any questions that you might have.
***FOR ANYONE THAT HAS NEGATIVE COMMENTS*** Please leave them out of this thread. This is intended to be a serious sale thread. I don't mind/care about constructive criticism or comments, but I'd like to keep this thread on topic. Thanks again everyone for reading and for your interest.
