  • FS: 1990 E30 M3 Brilliantrot/Black

    For sale:

    1990 BMW
    E30 M3
    VIN: WBSAK0317LAE33974
    Brilliantrot/Black Leather
    Clean Title
    Sunroof
    5-Speed
    144K mi

    Clean title, two owner car with the second owner having had it since 1995. Everything is there on the car and it could make a great driver, or a candidate for a top down resto. To make the transaction as effortless as possible for the next owner, I've included as much detail as possible, included a
    carfax and paid for a PPI below. Bought this car recently but now I owe alot on taxes so she has to go sadly.

    Carfax:

    PPI:

    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...2009.18.58.png

    Mechanicals:

    Strong healthy S14 with 1-190-2%, 2-190-2%, 3-200-1%, 4-190-1% compression numbers across the board. Has a slight seep from valve cover gasket or cam box, but nothing that drips on the floor or unusual for an E30 M3 with 144k. Water pump replaced 100 miles ago, with cooling system refresh in 2014 per PO. Car has a stage 3 clutch (unknown mfr.), so the clutch release is rather on the heavy side. In addition to that, it required a bit of effort to get the car into first gear, so it was discovered during the PPI that it's because of a broken release fork spring clip. I opted not to pull the transmission for that part as I imagine the new owner is going to want an OEM clutch at some point. There's also a leak from the selector shaft seal and the differential is dry. Unknown aftermarket muffler, but sounds pretty good without droning too much.

    Suspension/Wheels:

    Has Bilstein Sport shocks and white lowering springs (H&R?). Tires are brand new Sumitomo HTRZIII 235/40/17 with 17x8 +20 Borbet Type E. Rear sway bar mounting clip cracked, and suspension likely due for a refresh, although no clunking/noises during driving.

    Interior:

    Overall very solid shape. Two hairline cracks on the dash where the rib connects. Airbag wheel was replaced with MT1 wheel.Front seats leather is good with no loose stitching, although the forward recline cable is broken on the passenger seat (easy fix). Rear seats are also solid, but split at the seams in three places at the top (common). All switchgear & instrumentation works, although the cruise control does not currently engage (not sure why). There's an Alpine head unit and matching Alpine amp in the trunk with wiring.

    Exterior:

    M3 has had paintwork all over at some point although carfax says it is accident free. It's a very presentable 10 footer that can be buffed to shine up well, but has a Maaco overall paint quality. Fender vins have been painted over, as well as the door ones. Front Bumper has spider webbing on top, and spoiler has multiple paint cracks. Rear driver's quarter has had filler that's starting to crack as well as rust starting to bubble. Surprisingly, sunroof, battery tray, trunk and tails are rust free. Windshield was replaced at some point, and it looks like incorrectly at that with rust starting to bubble around the cowl. There's a spot of rust on the driver's floor pan area and sign of welding in the driver's rear wheel well (adds up with the
    quarter panel filler). Car is wired for low-beam HIDs - fog lights work.

    Conclusion:

    Overall, you've got a solid running car that has been regularly driven by a single owner for the last 20 years. The car's achilles heel is the body work, but considering all the parts are there it could be a solid M3 platform to start with. Mechanically, there are no burning issues with the primary recommended work being a shifter/clutch refresh.

    With pricing all over the place for rollers in the high teens, good drivers in the 30s, and salvage tit

      He listed it for $25,900. I bought it for $27,900 because I really wanted it. I payed $1000 for shipping which equals to $28,900. That's the price in looking to get back for it.
      But thanks for assuming fellas.

          If I found my car through S14net, it would make sense that I would try and sell it here. I am pretty sure individual cars (and parts) have transacted more than once across this board. I am also sure the price has differed during subsequent transactions. What's your point?

            Thank you ^
            Im now debating on keeping it and doing a S54 swap and selling the s14 to recover some $ to take care of the body and rust. So if anyone is interested, I will be selling the s14/trans. Whats a good price? $10k?

              If you're trying to recoup your investment, you're going the opposite direction by removing the s14 and spending $ on swaps and rust repair.
