Engine & Gearbox:
The car has covered 167k miles. Had a bottom end rebuild (BMW Recall) done at 44k miles and then another full engine rebuild (done in my ownership) at 150k miles. The rebuild included new race big end bearings and forged pistons. The cylinder head was skimmed and the engine now has a higher compression ratio than standard at 12:1. Gearbox is standard and I've never had any issues. New clutch and flywheel at 150k miles too.
Bodywork is in very good condition, few stone chips in the front and theres a small bubble of rust on the driver's rear arch and on the boot lid. But I will leave this to the new owner to address they way they see fit. But overall the body work is very nice. Has been ceramic coated so looks shiny and has a degree of protection as a result.
Suspension & Brakes:
I have BC racing coilovers fitted aswell as various polybushes fitted in the rear. Car has been professionally set up and isnt mush lower than standard but handles far better. Very smooth over bumps considering the handling it provides. Comes with Brand new genuine brake disks in the boot, they haven't been fitted yet. Will try to get them fitted before sale but if not, they're there Rear brakes were replaced about 2 years ago and are still in great condition.
Wheels & Tyres:
Aftermarket replica M359 (E92 M3 Competition pack style) wheels fitted. These came from CM wheels and are a reputable seller of replica wheels. Wrapped in Michelin pilot sport 4 tyres on the front and pilot supersport on the rear.
The interior is completely standard. Has the Harmon Kardon sound system with the nav screen. Also has a sunroof
Car has a few ECU mods to note.
Shift lights on rev counter
Warm up lights go by oil temp instead of water temp
Sport mode memory
DRL (dimmed indicators)
Bleeps on lock and unlock
Full closure windows and sunroof.
Follow you home lights
Doors lock at 15mph
Exhaust valve fitted with remote control : Butterfly valve before the back box to make it loud when you want and quiet as stock when you don't.
The bootfloor is a common weak point on these and this one has been resin injected (BMW Recall) and has been recently inspected and no cracks were found.
The Vanos is another weak point with these and I have yet to service the vanos (would be doing it at some point if I was keeping) but I have never had any issues and there are no noises coming from it and it all seems to be working fine.
Car will come with a full years MOT as it's due at the start of August. It does have a lot of miles but it has also been serviced every 7000 or so miles to keep it tip top. So this is a car you can enjoy using everyday and not have to worry about putting miles on it. Has also had lots of other parts and maintenance done over the time I've owned it. Kept most of the receipts in the folder as well as the owners owner's manual. Service book is fully up to date and has the all important run in service. I think I've covered everything but I'm sure theres soemthing I'll have missed so if you have any questions then feel free to ask. Open to offers on the price as it is high on miles but does have some important work and mods done to it so I wasnt sure how to price it.
Can email better pictures if required. I just used ones I could find on my phone for the ad. Also would prefer texts or emails during the day as I can't use my phone at work.
Thanks for looking, cheers.
