2002 BMW M3 Coupe Track Car – $15,900
Unique Podium finisher 2002 E46 BMW M3. Tracked by the previous owner. Now a very unique daily driver under my ownership (reinstalled interior, street tire and pads, everything else is as it was). Always garaged, clean title, completely refreshed.
The car makes 300 rwhp with a very conservative tune. It can go to roughly ~320 with a new intake manifold and more aggressive tune. The engine and rear-end has been completely refreshed 12K miles ago by GG performance in Tomball, TX (https://www.facebook.com/pages/G-G-Performance-Engines/170278656319063)
Including: head got new valves valve guides,
no porting done bottom has brand new pistons and all new bearings
all new engine and transmission mounts were installed
solid diff bushings and bearing type rear camber control arms
Transmission and diff.
The body has 200K miles but the fresh engine and all the mods (see below) gives a very solid driving experience. The raw power and handling enabled from all the modes really bring this M3 to a unique level.
Here is a non exhaustive list of the mods:
long tube headers Borla exhaust (catless)
GAZ suspension single adjustable shocks 900-650 springs
Bimmerworld adjustable swaybars
Vorshlag camber plates
New radiator and fan blades with engine install
Reinforced rear sub frame
Aftermarket water pump and steering pump pulleys
Bolt on half cage.
Single mass lightweight flywheel
Square setup with 18 inch rims forged wheels other things I forget now
Maintenance-wise, It has been checked by two different mechanic shops in Houston in the last 2 weeks to ensure everything is safe and good. Recent maintenance works (less than 3 months ago) include:
oil and filter change
transmission fluid differential fluid
Vanos oil feed line
AC sensor and freon
new tires on rear
clutch and pilot bearing
new wheel hubs and bearings and studs all around
The car will also come with a large amount of maintenance pieces, including a brand new clutch, oem flywheel, brake pads, rear wheel hub and hub bearing with the lug nuts, harnesses (2 sets, 5 points). The car will come with all the parts from above included.
This car is thus very solid mechanically and reliable (I just did a non stop 6 hour drive without any issues). The only cons are aesthetics and comfort related and are the only points I list below: it needs a pusher fan motor, the only implication is that the AC will not blow very cold if the car doesn’t move. it needs a new speedo sensors (this not reading the speed also triggers the ABS light) it needs new speakers (the previous owner did not keep them when the car was stripped for track)
Small crack and the bottom of the windshield Previous owner track podiums:
The car was campaigned with two second place finishes for the NASA TX TTB (now TT4) 2015 and 2016 championships. Perfect for someone looking for a track car for track days HPDE. I might consider trades, preferably for some reliable modified cars.
The price reflects all the above pros and cons so please don’t try to bargain. Thanks !
