This is a 550+ hp 1999 E36 M3. Current mileage is ~97,500mi. This is not a daily driven car and only acquires 20-50 miles a week. Cosmos Black Metallic over Tan Leather is a gorgeous combo and very rare. I’ve never seen another one like it in person. This Turbo M3 has been very well kept courtesy to regular services between Flow BMW of Winston-Salem and Motorsport-Connections. The later completed a full engine rebuild in early 2011.
Tens of Thousands of Dollars have gone into the very best of modifications for this car. This has been a dream machine and puts a smile on everyone’s face that gets to ride. At least it looks like a smile.
I really try not to make a big deal out of this car being fast and I know, "There is always a bigger fish." But for all intents and purposes, this thing is stupid fast! When you put your foot in it, you have to be absolutely ready for it. In High Boost 60-120mph comes and goes quicker than you can read this sentence. And you better be in a straight line and on a smooth surface, otherwise the rear wheels will try to overtake the front. I only tell you this because this car is capable of handling much higer boost levels than the 16psi I have high boost set on. After just over a year of having the engine rebuilt I have not yet attempted to increase the pressure. I just haven't had the need. Nevertheless, I can't imagine how incredible it would be to experience a few more psi.
P.S. A little insight into my mind - Few things are more satisfying than being faster than some guy on a sports bike trying to showoff to his girlfriend sitting on the back.
