Wheels look nice. Car looks like crap - lowered WAY too much, and the tires are WAY too low profile.

Too bad the wheels weren't on a reasonable vehicle - they'd probably look appealing.

I expect this extreme engine to need rebuilt more frequently than say a n/a 3L Bimmer engine from say an E9x 328i. But really you have at least three major inputs to this:

Were there any E9x M3s that were actually 2007 model year cars sold?

I wouldn't roll that much negative equity, certainly not over unrealized potential future maintenance costs.

No doubt the M3 simply isn't as raw as even a new 911, much less the 1988. It weighs 1000lbs more and has all the modern safety/sound/luxury stuff that deadens the whole operation.

Seems like a Good price for a just broken in S65 engine. .. But I wonder why you're taking it apart to play with the bottom end, and not even discussing it in the ad?

I *think* my '11 E90 M3 DCT does the same thing. Related to how long it's been off? Like a quick stop doesn't require the warning screen/start over?
