I feel like I'm selling one of my children. But I've only put 5000 highway miles on her in 2+ years. She's meant to be driven more instead of stored during winters and as a weekend toy.  

Bought in 10/2014 from the third owner. a BMW enthusiast. Second owner bought her certified pre-owned. I've driven her back & forth from Toronto. Canada to New Jersey several times. Very clean. She pulls strong and hard through the entire rev range. Never tracked or auto-crossed. I've owned 3 BMWs. and babied and maintained them all.

Good:
- 100% Bone stock except for a Spectre short ram air intake. Including stock airbox.
- Very clean engine. Liqui Moly oil. and oil additive changed recently.  
- New thermostat (Behr). aluminum thermostat housing. upgraded water pump (metal impellers)
- Clutch fan delete. PO had the worn clutch fan take out the radiator which is a common occurrence. Lower temperature auxiliary fan switch to help keep her cool. Depending where driven. may consider an electric fan setup
- New Battery. - New Spark plugs.
- Rustproofed recently at Krown. a renowned Canadian company.
- New valve cover gasket.
- New BMW OEM Oxygen sensors (pre-cat & post-cat).  - New Mann Fuel filter. - New OEM Mass Airflow Sensor. Intake boot.
- New Continental DWS Tires with less than 5000 miles.  
- Wheels balanced.
- Clutchmaster's lightweight flywheel. Very fast :-)
- Glove box door doesn't sag! No cracks in dash.
- On board computer LED still working. No dead pixels.
- Cross bar suspension fortification.
- Alpine alarm/headunit with bluetooth for Iphone/Android integration.
- Black kidneys
- Smoked corners.
- Tinted windows.

Imperfections:
- Hood has some rock chips. couple dings here and there (see pics) as it is 20 years old. Original Hellrot red paint still "pops". Must be seen to be appreciated. Washed & detailed every year. Often get compliments.
- Airbag light is on (PO had it diagnosed as clock spring. Including an OEM M3 Steering wheel)
- Slow power steering leak. Haven't had time to look at it but it's likely from a hose.
- Driver's side mirror could be cleaned up and exterior clear coat is peeling.

Minor Accident history under second owner:
Slow traffic rolling front impact. Body work was professionally done so well that if I hadn't pulled carfax. I wouldn't have known. It didn't deter me from buying.

Includes:
- BMW NOAH venting custom car cover.
- Stainless Steel Brake Lines
- H & R Springs.
- Leather case containing owner/service manual. Books (Bentley Service Manual & Haynes)
- 2 sets of Marksman remote key fobs.
- Original certified pre-owned window sticker.

Clean NY title in hand.  Offers not made through ebay will be ignored.  I'm not cash strapped so all low ball offers will be ignored. No joyrides. No trades. Serious cash buyers only. I don't really want to sell but if it has to be. want her to go to a good home.
Car's listed locally so reserve right to end listing early if sold.
Thanks for looking.
