When I purchased this car it came with '92-'96 grille. The car now has the proper '98 style grille installed. I have also purchased a separate set of tail lights that have a high gloss glaze to them for the "blacked out" look. An aftermarket LED interior lighting kit was installed to give a blue tint to the interior lights as well as the license plate. A Depot Angel Eye Kit with xenon HIDs were purchased as well. The '98 grille, blacked out tails, 16 bulb LED interior light kit, and angel eye headlights are all installed on the car right now. I have saved all of the stock parts and would glady give these to the buyer of the car. All stock and aftermarket items are in pristine condition. I hope that clears some things up.

This car has been well maintained by the past 3 owners (myself included) You can have all of these items for free if purchased by 3/14/09.

I wish I didn't have to sell this car as she has treated me great for the past two years. I have returned this favor by taking care of the car the same way she has taken care of me. Leather has been conditioned every six months for the past two years and washed every week. I intend on continuing the maintenance (it's due for an oil change at 87000 miles) and taking care of her until the day of sale. This car has been garaged for the past year and a half. It has only seen the elements for about 2 months (roommates bought a pop-up trailer stored in the garage). I do not want this car to go to someone that will just run it into the ground. I have put a lot of money and care into this car, so I really want someone that will appreciate this car for what it is and that is a masterpiece. The car is not paid off, so you will be purchasing it from my bank after i sign it over this beautiful car will be yours.

Looking to $16-$14.5k for it

Auction is just about over. Hopefully one of the 20 people watching it will actually bid... Here's a list of some of the recent mods:

- radiator, thermostat
, water pump, coolant level sensor, BMW coolant, Aluminum thermostat housing
- serpentine belts, NGK plugs, full tune up with filters, cabin filter etc
- deflection pulley, A/C belt tensioner
- rear brake pads, rotors and sensor +flushed brake fluid
- muffler hangers + various little things
- full set of Bilstein Sport shocks, shock mounts, reinforcing rear shock plates, outer tie-rod ends
- OEM M3 black floor mats (driver's is a bit worn now)

I also forgot to tell you that I also changed the RTAB's on the car and installed the neoprene spacers (Polyurethane) on the trailing arm to limit travel on the arm. That way the new bushings will last longer.

Dude, GL with the sale. If you get offered $10k for it, I'd take it and run

Thanks. I've had 10 and 10.2K offered, but that's not what it's worth. A low mileage car that has been this well maintained is worth well over the 11.5 that i am asking for it. It's just a process of playing the waiting game for the right person. This will be my 3rd car i've sold and every car prior to this one i've made profit off of. I thought these car's held their value, but I was amazed at the depreciation value of it now. I'll be taking a 6K dollar loss if i sell it for 11.5K.. SO every cent counts. I need at least 11K from the sale.

It's definitely worth a bit more than $10k, since these cars often require $2k of work on day 1. The color combo might be hurting you, but I'm sure on the east coast you could sell it.

You might return the tail lights to stock. I see black lights like that I keep going.

Thanks for the ideas/comments. the car was sold earlier today to the guy i had originally purchased it from. Oh and I got 12K for it. So i didn't have to stoop to 10K and run. haha. Thanks for the comments and I appreciate the interest people expressed throughout the few months of sale.
