Vin# starts with WBS, so it's legit. But who wants a damn vert?

Really? Why would they put the non m bumper on there?

EDIT: I like my vert by the way, but definitely not for an M3. My car isn't going to be tracked though, so that's why I got a vert.

I was thinking the same thing. I would definitely get it checked, but it looks like a nice neighborhood, so maybe he priced it because of the high miles?

Judging by the photos something very strange seems to be up. It's not an M rear bumper or side skirts, but thats small fries. The one open hood picture is too far away. From what I could tell though the intake was plastic... Not the silver colored Schrick Goodness. The shifter I couldn't tell if it had the M knob. I'm too lazy to check the VIN. The truth is you won't know what you're getting without seeing the car in person, know what to look for an don't be afraid to call the seller out on some bullsh!t

It's the AC Schnitzer side skirts and bumper, but I'm not sure about the manifold. I've seen a few of them powder coated black so maybe he had that done, as he said he had it honed as well, but I'm really not sure. And that shifter looks really tall to me anyways, I'd replace it with the weighted ZHP one

Yep, she's a legit M. (Aside from the obvious WBS... Ken pointed out).

Well assuming the best, I'd say that this guy is not telling us something because 7k is low for an M3 let alone one with ACS and Dinan parts. Or his parents dropped him as a child.

I'd say no. Not with 180k.


E36 M's have just about bottomed out.

Offered to trade my contour reps with Blizzaks. I don't know what to do if he says yes (probably won't). It's a cool car, but I have no use for it.

Yeah, not a bad trade at all. But I'm not sure what I would even do with it. It probably wouldn't make that great of a winter beater. And I don't have money to make it into a summer project (plus there are many other cars I would rather work on).
