Car was originally Carbon Black and was repainted at some point of its life to the current Jet Black color. As a purist it does bother me it isn’t OEM paint, but Jet Black is definitely my preferred color over Carbon. Paint is in decent shape with a few small cracks and nicks but overall very clean (especially with the recent paint correction and ceramic coating). Rear driver side tail light has a few dead LEDs. Sunroof cover is broken (sunroof itself still works)

Overall, minus the respray the car is an absolute gem and has been built to my spec and standards. In my time of ownership I have dumped well over 10k into the car to get it to where it is today. My only reason for selling is to get back into an E92 M3.

Asking price is $38k. Willing to listen to offers but lowballs will be ignored. In no rush to sell at all (don’t even mind keeping)

VIN: WBSBL934X3JR23547

Asking price: $35,000 w/OEM wheels

Asking price: $38,000 w/TE37 Saga S
