Description for BMW M3 1988

1988E30 M3 S54 Swap located in Southern California. CLICK PHOTO ALBUM FOR IMAGES

Under 1k miles since the build has been complete. The S54 was refreshed and installed by Castros, new GC coilovers, all the goodies.

Car is located in Villa Park, CA, lien free, clean title. Zinnoberrot paint wrapped white, two sets of wheels, new tires on each. Two pages of parts and upwards of $30k spent in the last 2k miles to get it dialed in, over $70k total and too many hours spent.

The car is setup for street with sound deadening, seat delete instead of stripped interior, ac, radio, etc.but can still do track duty as it is well balanced, powerful, has buckets, roll bar, harnesses, upgraded braking, fuel, and cooling systems.

I absolutely love the car but with a new baby I just find less and less time to drive it. I had built it thinking I would be doing some track days but it has yet to make it to the track as I picked up an SR3, so it has only seen weekend outings about once a month. I have a full photo set documenting the paint being in great shape prior to be wrapped. Registration paid through June 2021. 175,158 mi on the chassis and only 812 since motor install.

After seeing a salvage title S54 E30 sell for $63k plus fees I would think a list price of $59k obo is in line for my car. If I don’t sell it quickly it will be off for a refreshed interior and trying to fetch somewhere in the 60s.Link BAT sale:https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1988-bmw-m3-101/
