    FS: LS3 E36 M3 - Chicago

    Thought I'd try posting here first before going the ebay/BaT route. I've had this car for 3 years and about 5,000 miles. This is a well sorted, completed project. I bought this from a gentleman in Texas and drove it home to Chicago without issues. It's been garaged here and stored over the winters. My reasons for selling are looking to free up funds and I've got one too many summer cars and not enough room to keep them. The body is in decent shape and cleans up better than the average E36 and is rust free. It did have some body work done around the drivers rear quarter panel and there is a 3 inch bondo crack just under the rear window currently present. I also decided to source out another trunk without spoiler mounting holes and the paint isn't a perfect match and I could have done a little better with adjusting the gaps. I have the original trunk and M3 spoiler which is included. Car drives straight and puts power down pretty well with the RS4 tires.

    A lot of care was put into this car and it's definitely a car I'll miss. In summary, this is a 3200lb car with over 500hp at the crank that knows how to take a corner. Tons of new parts... I wouldn't hesitate to drive it across the country. I have more details and receipts if you are serious.
