Description for BMW M3 1991

One private owner (me). I bought it in November 1991 from Patrick BMW in Schaumburg IL. It had 2900 miles, it had been a BMW program car used by a member of BMW staff in Atlanta GA. I have lived in Chicago IL, SoCal, NorCal, Phoenix AZ and now Seattle WA with it – my work moves me around. In each case I have had it transported. I drove it mostly when I lived in IL, all the service records from there are from Patrick BMW. Since then it has been serviced by independent BMW specialists. It is currently in Seattle, where I’m living until the end of May. If you buy it, you'll need to have it paid for and picked up by Friday May 25th.
