Up for sale is my personal 1988 BME E30 M3 is Diamond Schwarz Metallic over Black. I bought this car 7 years ago. and it has been a passion project from day 1. Within a week of purchasing the car. it spun a rod bearing. and I sold the original S14 and complete driveline. I then personally sourced a Euro S50B32 + 6-speed in London and acquired the entire driveline from an Evo M3 Donor over there. The ECU was professionally tuned and the EWS system was deleted so there is no worry of ever locking down the motor. The car pushes around 340hp to the crank and turns 8200rpm! The swap was done professionally with no corners (or wires) cut. The Euro engine wire harness was properly pinned out and mated to the factory US chassis harness. EVERY gauge works exactly as it should. The motor itself has roughly 65k miles on it. and all import paperwork is included in the sale. The motor received a quick tune up. valve cover gasket. and a few misc. hoses and seals. The transmission got fresh fluid. The stock Euro headers were slightly modified to clear the E30 M3 firewall and sway bar. then Swaintech White Lightning Ceramic coated. The rest of the exhaust is a custom stainless setup done by Coffey's Race Prep and Fabrication. No Cats. but there is a resonator section with with V-Bands. so a catalyst could easily be installed. The rear muffler is a Vibrant. This this sounds like a DTM car! The AC system is 100% new and blows ice cold (R134a) custom lines. The suspension is a fully adjustable and fully rebuilt Pro-Track setup with remote reservoirs. GC fully adjustable camber plates. and a very nice Eibach street spring package (helper springs added) new front coated hubs and wheel bearings too. The stock suspension is included in the sale. The front brakes are E36 M3 brakes. rebuilt and powder coated calipers. cross drilled rotors. and the braking system was converted to a manual setup from “Massive” in order to fit the stock intake on the Euro motor. Willwood Brake Bias dial installed. Rear brakes are stock. I had a custom skid plate made and installed to protect the motor. Front strut brace. Rear custom shock tower brace that ties into the floor to the rear suspension being converted to a true coilover with the current suspension setup. The rear end is the stock small case 4. 10 LSD. I have a Medium Case 3. 23 LSD from a Z3M. as well as Z3M rear control arms. brakes. and axles that I was planning on swapping into the car. but have lost the steam to keep going with it. The Z3M parts need fresher up. the diff is ready to go. (The Z3M parts will be included in the sale for the right price. )I had the BBS RC042 17x7. 5 Fronts. 17x8. 5 Rear. wheels shipped from Spain and fully refurbished. They are the 2-piece wheels with forged centers that originally came on the Euro E36 M3 Evo cars. Brand new Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. The interior is nearly brand new. I had a brand new (OEM BMW) Dash and Carpet Kit installed. Custom Recaro A8 seats made and shipped from Germany. Alcantara M-Tech 2 385mm Steering Wheel. ZHP Style 6-Speed shift Knob. Original. and very nice rear seats and headliner in-tact. The Exterior of the car is nearly flawless with a complete Glass out repaint about 2 years ago (only 200 miles on the car since) When the paint was done. all jambs were done. so there are no tape lines on the car. At that time I had the windshield and gasket replaced. door window rubber replaced. and rear glass trim replaced. I also had new OEM emblems installed after paint. I let the paint cure for a full year on the car before I had it completely paint corrected (wet sanded and leveled) then coated with Ceramic Pro. The paint is amazing!  There is WAY to much to list on this car. including all of the gaskets. lines. mounts. control arms. gas lines. brake lines. etc. etc. etc that have all been replaced. …. It is truly a special car that I hate to let go. but it's time for a change. The car has absolutely ZERO rust. clean title. etc. There are handfull of very small items that I have never addressed. but no major needs. Those items include. the fog lights are INOP and have been since I got the car. side mirrors worked years ago. but stopped working last time I tried them (I'm the only one who drives the car so I hadn't moved them in years) Brake pad warning light is on but sensor is new. 1 small oil leak that leaves a drop here and there. Much of the trunk inside paneling is out due too the rear strut brace. I have all the pieces except the floor fabric. Loads of spare parts come with this car. This car runs phenomenally. drives tight and smooth. and turns heads everywhere it goes. I hate to see it go.
