2001 BMW M3
Laguna Seca Blue
Gray interior w/ black trim
72,000~ miles
6 speed manual
Gunmetal powder coated factory 18's with new rear tires
Power sunroof, windows, seats (heated), etc.
Steering wheel controls for radio
Dice Silverline iPod/iPhone integration
Black kidney & side vent grills (chrome originals included)

Originally cared for by Tennessee & Alabama BMW dealers
Service II performed by Automotion at around 57k miles
Oil changed every 3k miles
Rear tires replaced about 2k miles ago

The good:
Motor pulls very well, no hesitation or flat spots
Air is ice cold
Heat is very hot
Suspension still feels good

The "bad":
Dent in front of rear drivers side wheel
Small dent in roof
Couple small dings in body
Small scrape in fender/bumper, in front of drivers side front wheel
Crack in rear bumper diffuser piece (just noticed this as I was taking photos)
Scratches on trunklid & rear window from garage door coming down on it. These have been there for a bit, I never fixed it as I always planned on replacing with a CSL trunk anyway.
One HVAC vent is broken, air flows through but you can't adjust the angle
Sunroof cover is off track
Passenger window is either off track or needs a regulator (I will "probably" address this before selling)
One rear wheel has one spot of curb rash on very edge of lip

Upcoming maintenance:
I would look into replacing the brake pads in the next 10,000 miles or so

Really it's a nice car, I'm just ready for a change. I prefer smaller cars and as such want to move to back to a swapped Rabbit as my fun car.

Asking $18,500 obo

I'm open to offers but I do know my bottom line, it's not far off.

Partial trades I would consider...
Subaru WRX wagon
Land Rover Discovery II
20th Anniversary Golf

Car is located in Louisville, KY. I'd be willing to drive 150 miles or so for delivery if necessary. Feel free to PM me or email me at [email protected] with any questions.

Some photos shot with my phone... (I didn't clean the car at all before shooting these)

Rear tires

Scrape in front of front wheel
