Description

This BMW E36 M3 Coupe just come into DAS this week and man are we happy to have it. These E36's are getting harder and harder to find specially as a TRUE 1 OWNER, adult owned vehicle. The previous owner, an avid BMW, Porsche and Ferrari owner took the utmost care of this car mechanically and cosmetically. First, you will not find such an impressive service history as this E36. The previous owner has spent over $30k, yes $30k in maintaining this car since new, we have all the documents from 2003 to current, the documents from 1998-2002 are missing due to them being in another folder the owner kept that was given to the buyer of his E30 M3. Needless to say, even with what we have, its beyond impressive. There are synthetic oil changes done within 100 miles of one another simply due to time intervals. The owner brought the car in every 4-12 months and told them to do anything and everything that they recommended.

Due to the impeccable service history and using nothing but he best parts and fluids, this E36 drives like a dream. Not only is it very pleasurable to drive, but it literally feels and sounds like a new car. There are ZERO noises, unusual characteristics, or any typical signs you get of driving a used car. As a previous personal owner of 2 E36 M3s and seller of many, I know these cars well and this car is hands down an incredible example. With the fast rise in value and collectability of the E30 M3, the E36 M3 is following the linear line of being next and the values have been increasing for the last couple of years and will continue to do so which makes this car a great buy right now compared to future value.

Not only did the owner keep this car in perfect working order but the car was equally kept cosmetically. Upon entering the cabin, you immediately notice a rich yet slight scent of high end leather conditioner which is also noticed when inspecting the leather. The leather in these cars are notorious for cracking and becoming very hard which is not the case with this car. Even when the car showed any slight signs of defect it was immediately take care of. For example back in 2017, the headliner began to sag which is also very common with these and the owner went to a BMW dealer to get OEM fabric and finish. The car was garaged kept and covered since day 1 of ownership. All body panels are original BMW factory panels. The Front and rear bumpers have been painted as noted in the records due to rock chips. The front and rear bumper are now literally 100% flawless without a single flaw. The OEM wheels share that same finish, they don't have a single curb rashing or typical peeling top coat.

In closing, with all things considered, this E36 M3 is perhaps one of the nicest in the country. The mileage is 100% accurate and confirmed. The Carfax is stunning and shows ONE single owner without one single blemish. The title is clear and clean and ready to sign over. The service history simply can't get any better. The drivability is perfect, the color combo is gorgeous, and they are increasing in value. Dont miss out of this rare find.

The previous owner has his M3 Wetsanded and Buffed other known as paint correction and the company sanded through the paint on some of the hard lines and edges of the body. These sanding marks were small but noticeable if you know what your looking at. These imperfection were just on some of the panels so we were going to repaint just those panels effected. When you paint a silver metallic you alway want to blend spray other panels so you can't see the difference in the new paint and old paint and with that needing to be done and how amazing this car is we decided to go ahead and repaint the entire car. The photos of the this car shown are BEFORE the repaint and as you an see the car looks amazing before we even painted it.

Our Paint process is that of a fully restored vehicle. This BMW was completely disassembled, all glass, all trim, all rubber, all holdings, all bumpers, all lights, hood, etc. The body was then sanded down to metal, sealed, primed then blocked and sanded, then primed again followed by another blocking and sanding followed by 2 coats and base silver paint and 2 coat of clear coat. After the panels cured the car was put back together. When we put the panels back on EVERY SINGLE Clip, rubber seal, belt molding, exterior weather trim, side glass molding, M3 emblems, side skirt molding and rubber, etc was all replaced with brand new OEM BMW parts. Glass was then reinstalled with all new seals and gaskets. Once the BMW was put back together, it then received a 5 day wet sand, compound, buff and polish for a a perfect show-car finish. This paint job although we didn add this price to the car would easily cost $12-16k depending on where you want. We also use nothing but the very best primer, base color and clear on the market. This Paint Job literally took this E36 to another level, not only is the paint better than new but all the seals, trim etc which is ALWAYS aged and dry cracked on these cars looks and is brand new. We also color matched the side trim which comes plastic and black from the factory for a color match/ color keyed cleaner look.
