  • Fs 1989 2.5 L M3

    This is a much cared for 1989 M3 Alpine white (original paint) with black interior that has never seen salt or winter. I have the original paperwork; I am the 3rd owner. The chassis has 54,000 miles on it; the 2.5L engine less than 8,000. Car is covered in winter; Zymoled year round and always garaged.

    The car has a 2.5 L engine that was custom built by specialist Leo Franchi. It has 284/276 Shrick cams, 48mm throttle bodies, and a custom chip from Leo's chip master. The engine was completely balanced with headwork to match the larger throttle bodies. Redline is 8000 but I rarely go over 7000. Leo added an adjustable fuel pressure regulator and a 2Qt. accusump (for extra protection) and the Turner oil-pan baffle. It has a beautiful large diameter 4 piece into 1 header (looks just like a DTM version - German Touring Car) that fit into a custom Burns collector http://www.burnsstainless.com/ - very cool and trick looking. The 3” exhaust system is all custom, with one custom baffled muffler, to reduce backpressure. The Cat has been removed for increased performance but can be easily replaced as the pipes are fitted with flanged connectors. The car also has Euro MSport striped air box and valve cover, looks beautiful. I have Dyno sheets that show 200hp at the wheel, more than a standard US spec M3 makes at the crank.

    Recently I have replaced the ignition wires and upgraded the timing chain tensioner to the e36 unit. http://e30m3performance.com/installs...oner/index.htm

    The SI board was also recently replaced.

    The transmission is a Euro close ratio 5 speed where 5th is 1:1. It was rebuilt by Jim Blanton in 2002 and the gears are a racer's set up - 1st is long; 2,3,4,& 5 are close together. The car also has the “dog-leg” shift pattern where 1st is down and to the left, as on the Sport Evo. The differential is a Quaiffe with a 3:73 to 1 ratio - 4000RPM in 5th is 80MPH. The diff ratio makes the speedometer read correctly even with the altered gearing. There is also a light weight flywheel.
    Suspension is Dinan stage IV with the springs, dampers, swaybars, and adjustable camber plates in front. Also, a Sparco front shock tower brace. Brakes are 12" two piece rotors all around. These Korman parts are lighter weight as the rotor hats are aluminum. http://www.kormanfastbmw.com/e30m3bra.htm This setup uses the stock calipers and pads but has more swept surface. Carbon fiber cool air ducts run from the grille directly to the backing plates mounted on the uprights via flex hose. There are also stainless steel brake lines and a larger bore 28mm master cylinder from a 750.
    The wheels are 16” OZ Racing fr 7x16. rear 8x16 wtih Pirelli Rosso's (225f/245r). Track wheels are wider ACT LS 8x16s with new Kumho 245's. It has the EVO II front splitter and a custom EVO III rear wing.
    The interior has a 3 gauge cluster mounted in the center console - oil pressure, ammeter, and rear end diff temperature. There is also a nice Momo wheel - with a 1"
    extension to put it closer to the driver. http://e30m3performance.com/installs..._approach2.htm There are two sets of 4-point harnesses with anchors. The original seat is in great condition as the previous owner used a Sparco seat.
    I doubt you can find a car fully sorted that handles as well and where the body looks as gorgeous. This car has never been in an accident, and all the vin stickers are still in place on the fenders and trunk lid (WBSAK0304KAE33016). The AC blows cold. I have more pictures if you call or email to request them. This is a fantastic car and I would rather not sell it, but I am in grad school, my wife is expecting, and I don’t drive the car much (how cliché). I need to have one fun daily diver, not a commuter and a weekend car.

    I have a folder around 2 inches thick with receipts for maintenance and the improvements. The modification receipts total over $30,000. When an unmodified car with this many miles costs the same amount, you will understand why this is such a reasonable price. Located in the Detroit area.

    Price: $22,000 obo.

            Above, you indicate 240 at the wheels, but your link says 200 at the wheels... which is it? Can you post the dyno sheets.

            Thanks,

              Jason,
              BIG WOOPS! You are correct. I have posted a Dyno sheet on the google page, and asked the moderators to modify the text on this post. Sorry for the confusion. It should be 200hp at the wheel and ~240hp at the crank.

                    I got a very clean 91 M5 with 106k miles, white/black with all service records from day one.

                    Any interest?

                          I'm not really replacing it. I have a commuter car that's has been my DD since before I bought the M3.
