This car is bone stock and original except for the radio, original radio included, and muffler. All body panel serial numbers match. Clean title and CarFax. Zinnoberrot (Cinnabar Red) with grey upholstery. Serial number WBSAK030XJ2197056, manufactured 11/87, with mileage 141,883. I bought the car in March 1998 with 92K, drove it daily until sometime in 2004, where it has been parked in my garage since. While preparing it to sell I found some rust, that I have since fixed (mig/hammer welded repairs with no bondo/filler) and had the driver’s seat restored. I have a book of receipts that date back to the previous owner’s purchase in 1992, and almost all of the repairs I made. Have the original Owner’s Manual and M3 Supplement, Haynes and Chilton’s repair manuals, copy of BMW’s M3 repair and parts manuals on CDs, and an M3 Electrical Repair Manual. Not perfect, but very complete and restorable, or as a daily driver.

I am selling it. Ther kids are graduated and out of the house, so its finally my turn, to go racing. I wasn't going to turn this unmolested car into a race car and my wife said only one toy at a time. I'm racing SCCA Formula 500. Would like to car to go to a good home:-)
