  • [NC] 1990 M3 for sale

    Well, gentlemen (and ladies?), the time has come for me to part ways with my M3. The good news is, it looks like I am to become a father; really excited about that!
    So, here we are.


    Vitals:
    Location - Charlotte, NC
    (not registered at the moment)
    Price - $10k
    (no trades)
    Color - Pearl White
    (not Alpine,though the front was originally)


    The good:
    1. 103k original miles on the stock S14
    2. Runs well
    3. Oil pan baffle installed
    4. Bilstein springs installed, which lower the car ~1/2"
    5. Rear camber kit installed to bring it back to stock negative 2 degrees
    6. 5 x Azev rims and new rear tires
    7. Radar detector installed behind the grill, as well as the laser detectors at the front and rear windshields, with control module in the ashtray
    8. After-market deck with aux-in installed
    9. I have title in hand



    The bad:
    1. Needs a dent pulled out on the right side
    2. Door tweeters need installing (included with car)
    3. Could use a paint job
    4. E-brake cable could use adjusting, it holds, but not well on a hill
    5. Leather is original, and it appears that none of the owners -myself included- really kept up with it
    6. Trunk lid needs fiberglass work at the support arm mounting
    7. Sunroof switch works in one direction only, needs replacing
    8. Crack in windshield on the passenger side, stable



    For those of you that remember, I put my car up for sale a while back, and then decided to keep it, but not before learning some important information:
    1. The people on this forum are, in general, very heavy in their knowledge base with regard to E30 M3s
    2. The guy that sold me the car never mentioned that the front and rear were originally different colors, from which, one may deduce that both cars were probably wrecked at some point. I am fairly sure he must have known, since he changed the stock springs out for shorter, stiffer Bilsteins
    3. People are sometimes quick to make an offer, and then backpedal as soon as the deal starts to get underway



    I have some photos and 2 youtube videos posted up, and I'm waiting to see if Mercury[BKM] is still pullingAutochecks, so that I can post that up as well. If anyone wants more than that, feel free to PM me.

    So this was the car which was sitting in Connecticut due to his owner military leave? Finally someone posted a set of pictures documenting the car.
    How is the engine?
    Good luck with the sale.

      Yep, same car. The engine is great, and quite honestly, probably the best thing about the whole car.

              I got curious after reading another thread about VIN stickers and found out that the trunk lid is the original.

              I now believe that the rear bumper and both rear quarter panels are the only non-original body pieces.
