I'm not so sure about selling my baby, but starting in September I'm going to have a 60 mile commute.
2001 E46 M3 6MT. Imola Red on Jet Black Interior with Piano Black Trim.
132k on the clock, tons and tons of maintenance records (In fact I keep each maintenance/mod record in a plastic cover in a binder just for this car). Very well cared for with some mods, both performance and cosmetic focused.
Rear subframe has been addressed with welded plates at Spec Motorsports, most recent check of VANOS hubs indicated that they were in tact.
It is currently receiving brand new rear tires, and it has Michelin Pilot Super Sports on the front in good condition.

- Few chips in windshield that I will fix before selling
- Few minor cosmetic flaws including a few scratches less than 2" and some rock chips on the front bumper
- VANOS/Rod Bearings haven't been addressed, but also haven't been an issue
- Cooling system hasn't been addressed, but also hasn't been an issue through two hot Texas summers
The last thing I had planned to make this car perfect was to preventatively address rod bearings and VANOS with WPC treated bearings and the Turbotoy VANOS hub. When I priced it out with my local indy shop, it was only a couple hundred dollars away from a swap with their 2006 76k mile S54 engine that is currently getting built with said bearings and VANOS hub. If the next owner is interested in going through with this swap I'm willing to take off the price to enable that swap.
As far as price, I think $15k obo is my asking price, and I'm willing to provide discount for a buyer who wants to do the swap. This is a car with a complete history, very well documented. If you have price suggestions, feel free to PM me. I do not need to sell, and I'm not in a rush. Feel free to low ball, but do not expect a response back. If you're interested in more pictures/want to know more about the car send me a personal message.
