95 M3 Build/Restoration/Track Car

Item Interest

Looking to sell my 1995 M3 that I have been restoring over the last year. This was a very hard decision to make but I need capital for a new business venture. The car is pretty much 100% with the exemption of a couple things that I think are personel preference. This is not an unfinished project car.

Cliff Notes:
Im the second registered owner of this CA only 95 M3, purchased last april with the full intention to just track it as it was. One thing led to another and the car was basically taken down to a bare chassis and every component refreshed or replaced. Engine was completely rebuilt by my self and with a large amount of help from Terry Tinney of Terry Tinney Performance Motors. I was very meticulous in this build, and with the car being 18 years old and 265k of driving, if I didn't like a parts condition it was replaced. The exterior condition is very good, a few small dents and with the car being Cosmos light scratches are visible here and there. Interior is in excellent shape as most of it is gone or new. I have not thrown away/sold any of the parts that were removed/replaced with the exception of the front and rear seats. I even still have all of the engine internals.

There are 3 things that I have not adressed as I think they would be better left to the new owner to decide:
  • Swaybars - I have the stock sways but they are not installed. New owner may elect to go bigger and that would come with sorting out the endlink lengths.
  • Brake Pads and Rotors - Current oem spec pads have plenty of life and the rotors will need to be replaced after this set. I was planning on getting much more agressive pads and rotors but think the new owner would want to pick these items.
  • Engine Tuning - Currently the car is running with a Turner stage 2 package chip. I was having issues with the tune and have just received a new chip from them on 4/26/12. Havent gotten on the dyno yet but initial drive showed positive results. Next step would be a Miller WAR but I think this would be a more personel decision for the new owner.

I have put about 900 miles on the car since the initial startup. Engine oil was changed at 100 and will be again before sale with Royal Purple HPS 5w30 as its only had break-in oil thus far. I will also perform another "nut & bolt" on all of the suspension components before sale. I have other vehicles and this only gets driven 1-3 times a week.

Looking to get $15,000 obo

Car is available to be seen in Tracy, CA. CA SMOG will need to be handled by the buyer, I have the stock mid pipe but it would need to be modified to attach onto the Supersprint headers. Please contact me with any question you may have and additional photos can be taken upon request. I am also willing to help coordinate shipping the vehicle, stock suspension could be installed no problem.
