Cheap BMW project car that sat for a couple of years with clutch hydraulic problems with former neighbor. I fixed the clutch pedal assembly that they broke, but the 4th gear syncro doesn't work well & you have to double-shift to go into 4th. It doesn't pop out of any gears and other gears work fine.Strong 2.5 in-line 6 cylinder engine and looks like an M3 but isn't. Everything works except the 10key computer display won't give F temp, only C. A/C is cold, sunroof is good, I replaced the sagging headliner, new Virginia inspection, 17" wheels that were painted four different times and have a lot of surface scratches, paint cracking, etc. If I were going to keep it, I would replace the trans ($350-$500 from salvage yards) & put nice wheels on it.Two small surface dents on right rear quarter & tiny dent on top of left front fender. I have my race car that keeps me busy & I don't have the garage space to keep this one. $2,000 firm price and is located in central Virginia at Culpeper, VA 22701
