The car is not worn out etc. Runs like a champ. Had it 10yrs and its time to move on.

~160k on engine+trans
~200k on chassis
~8k on clutch/flywheel
~36k on headgasket
~1k on suspension

1994 325is and has been converted/swapped to an M3 including drive train.

Engine:
-1995 OBDI 3.0 S50B30 straight 6. Motor was shipped from texas.
-Head gasket was professionally done by Bavarian Specialties at 150,000mi.It was an EXTERNAL leak.
-1994 OBDI intake manifold.
-TRM chipped for the following upgrades:
-Witchhunter flow-matched and rebuilt 21.5lb pink top injectors.
-3.5" MAF meter with an Active Autowerke 3.5" intake and 3.5" silicone boot.
-Rogue Engineering underdrive pulleys.
-Umnitza exhaust with a high flow cat. Car turns heads to say the least.
-7000rpm redline.
-Z3M 3 core radiator with electric fan.
-NGK OEM spark plugs complete with newer coils and boots.
-Valve cover gasket and spark plug tubes replaced last summer.
-Oil pump nut secured and will not fail. Oil pan gasket is only a few years old.
-All sensors were replaced at the time of the swap.

Suspension:
-H&R Bilstein Sport springs with Bilstein struts all around. Less than a year old and under 1k miles on them.
-Brand new lollipop bushings offset M3 bushings with negative camber increase of 0.5 degrees.
-Rear differential bushings replacesd with OEM new bushings.
-Shock tower bearings replaced with M3 bearings and reversed for more negative camber.
-OEM X-Brace from convertible installed for increased rigidity.

Interior:
-All black leather interior from 1998 coupe installed.
-Drivers seat has a little wear.
-Both seats are power and heated with adjustable thigh cushion.
-Roof liner and pillars have been redone in the past year.
-Arm rest is a little dried out but not an eyesore.
-Custom silver and black e-brake and shift boot.
-Interior is xenon LED lit.
-Drivers and passenger doors are extremely rare lux pieces that will not bubble like the standard version. 3M vinyl installed on hand holds can be easily changed. Matches interior boots.

Exterior:
-Euro plate on M3 front bumper with replaceable lip.
-Front end conversion to newer 97+ with new grills.
-Xenon LED DDE halos in DJ Auto glass lenses with 6000k HID projectres. No leaks.
-Yellow glass fog lights with protective plastic coating.
-Oem M3 sideskirts.
-OEM M3 door and fender trim.
-OEM M3 rear bumper.
-30% tint all around except front glass.
-Euro front, side and rear light housings.
-Shaved model off trunk for a clean look.
-Car has been professionally detailed once and the paint is extremely flat and glossy.

Transmission:

-Oem ZF 5 speed with a Z3 shifter for shorter throws.
-Selector rod is OEM but weighted to assist.
-Connecting linkage was replaced at the time of the swap. The shifter is not sloppy.
-Clutch is a gripforce unit with a lightweight flywheel able to withstand 400+ horsepower. The clutch has 8000mi on it and the pilot bearing was also replaced.
-Transmission bushings are a few years old.
-Slave and master cylinder are M3 and new.
-Redline D4 ATF and Differential oil mixture to prevent flywheel chatter.

Wheels:

-OEM Staggered Z3M BBS style 42's which are the exact offset for this car. These are extremely rare 2 piece wheels that can be taken apart and customized. I have the original receipt for $4000. These are BBS wheels and are stamped as such on the casting.
-Tires are Dunlop Direzzia
-Car has a full size spare with good tire.

Brakes:
-M3 floating rotors($900 a set) and calipers in the front. Rotors can be replaced with non floating which are much cheaper.
-All ABS light issues have been corrected. There are no lights on on the dash.
-Stainless brake lines and the fluid is new.
-Master cylinder is M3.

Differential:
-All new bushings and Redline fluid.
-3.15 gears with a 40% LSD which is stock for this car.

Never seen a track.

There is no such thing as a Jet Black M3.

There is very little rust on the car and the rear is solid.

****Minor issues include the sunroof will not "tilt"(broken lifting blocks $50) and the fuel guage intermittently reads E(dirty contacts in the back of the dash. 1 hour to clean them and the issue goes away).

****Paint on the roof and one of the fenders needs to be tended in my opinion. I will include a new fender with the sale of the car.

I have spent countless hours cleaning the little things on this car like the ICV, TPS, etc. Car runs and idles flawlessly. Heat and AC work as they should.

I have a bill for over $3300 from Zygmunt BMW last summer. Car has been driven less than 3000 miles since. I have most receipts for everything they may not be in order but they're there. Including receipts from the previous owner.

Thanks for looking.

I should also mention the engine plastics are off the original engine. The m power ones were in too poor of a condition to put back on.

So how about a picture without the covers?
