View Full Version : 99' Cosmos M3

02-19-2013, 11:31 AM
Posting for a friend of mine. Actually, the previous two owners are friends of mine. I've driven the car and can attest to the condition and performance of the car.

The owner is looking to move into a ZHP!

I am listing for sale my 1999m3. The car has extensive maintenance and tasteful modifications. It has been owned in southern climates and has no rust whatsoever. This is my second m3 coupe, and it is time for me to move on to something else. I have maintenance records for everything done to the car. It has been owned by responsible owners and always received quality service, the records prove so. Below listed is an outline of what has been done to the car and when it has been done. Pictures are posted as well as links to more pictures. Let me know if you have any questions. I welcome ppi's and shipping at the buyers expense. If you are looking for a well maintained e36m3 that won't need attention for many miles this it. The previous owner can attest so as well as other members here and on m3forum. This is not ur average m3, It is priced that way. The car has been treated well and has lots of quality stuff done to it. Price police please go away. No lowballing. I don't need to sell but am thinking about it. The car has a full set of ltws and brand new tires. So rather than buy a 10k m3 and blow a grand on wheels and tires, someone can buy a really nice car and not have to worry about that off the bat. The bushings are done, the cooling system is done. I have clears on the car now that do occasionally throw codes. There are the occassional low beam and check coolant level lights because the car has some sensors going bad. The car is 100% mechanically however, and is ready to go.

Miles are around 120k

I'm willing to trade for a well maintained e46m3 with higher miles or will sell for 13.5k I will also trade for a well maintained higher mileage sedan plus cash on your end. Im not putting cash on a trade. May consider a nice zhp.

DS1s...that's a sharp looking car.

Having thoughts about a 318ti swapped racecar build...

From a GS3, this was sent.

Wow! MiniD, Is there a place where I can see more pictures?

Those aren't DS1s, they're LTWs.

There's a FS thread on Bimmerforums.

I thought DS1s and LTWs were the same...

Right, DS1 and DS2 look similar at first glance but the DS1 has the BMW Motorsport on them.

The LTW wheels (in the original post) are also known as "Forged M Double Spoke".
