FS: '99 Z3 Roadster 2.8 Supercharged

I posted this on bimmerforums a while ago but figured I should post it here too. Looking for an enthusiast to buy the car who will enjoy it for many years to come . I don't really want or need to sell the car but I have too many vehicles and it won't get driven more than 1-2k mi/year. I would like it to go to a good home and not some kid that will trash it in a year.

Anyway, on to the details. Overall, the car is in excellent condition both mechanically and cosmetically. I owned it since Dec 2004 and kept a detailed spreadsheet on everything I ever did to the car. The car is featured in Bimmer magazine nr 111 (Dec 2012 issue). Currently 88k mi; might go up a bit since I still drive it occasionally. Details and pics below. Registered through Dec 2013

Feel free to ask any questions you may have. Not parting out the car and only serious inquiries please

Standard info/features
* Jet Black (Black II) over Beige Oregon Leather;
* 5-speed manual;
* Power everything;
* Business CD radio;
* Heated seats;
* Cruise control.

Engine/performance
* 6psi bolt-on supercharger kit (professionally installed by VF-engineering);
* Power is somewhere between the S52 and S54 M roadster; about 290-300hp crank.
* Stewart waterpump (significant upgrade over OEM);
* Ireland Engineering all aluminum radiator for better cooling;
* VANOS fix;
* Magnaflow 14815 exhaust.

Suspension/handling
* DINAN Strut brace;
* Rogue engineering shock mounts;
* H&R coilovers.

Cosmetic/other
* Umnitza Xenon headlights (OEM headlights included in sale);
* Stone guards;
* Upgraded mesh bumper grill;
* Retro-fitted auxiliary input;
* I had hood and bumper repainted to get rid of rock chips (no accident; full records available);
* ARD wheel studs with anti-theft nuts.

Asking price: $13,500 with stock wheels. Add $2500 for the Work VS-XX wheels and near brand new tires (Hankook Ventus V12).

Right now, the stock wheels need new tires. Front probably has 30-40% left but the rears are completely worn. There is some slight curb rash as well (I can take pics of all 4 wheels for you; currently up in the attic). Willing to wrap in some new rubber if my asking price is met.

Very nice! Any reason you stayed with the non-sport seats?

Well, the car came with them and I never really got the itch to upgrade . The seats are also in very good condition.
