1997 M3 - Cosmos on Black - 80k Miles - Bay Area, CA

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:
None
Item Interest
Up for sale is my 1997 Cosmos M3. I've owned the car since 2005 and have meticulously maintained it from day one.

So how is this BMW M3 different than the rest? For starters, this Bavarian e36 has only 80,000 miles. That equates to roughly 5,300 miles driven per year, which is well below the 15k/yr national average. Additionally the car has been regularly [and properly] washed, clayed, polished, waxed and garaged. I've always observed the cost of maintenance and upkeep as an investment, and I anticipate the buyer of this e36 m3 will appreciate my attention to detail.

Lastly, please take note of the maintenance records for this m3 and then compare to Edge Motorworks e36 75k Mile List , as this will illustrate the huge cost savings on your end.

Below is a comprehensive -though not complete- list of maintenance items that I have receipts for, so hopefully this will answer some questions up front in regards to the cars history.

While I agree that it seems like a lot of money, this car can command it.
I sold my 99 E36 last year, same color, 73k miles for $17,300. Guy drove it back from NYC to Charlotte and I picked up my E90 the next week!
