    1998 Active Autowerke Techno Violet 470hp BMW M3 Hardtop Convertible 42k miles CA

    I want to be clear...this M3 will NOT hold a candle to Alex's. If you are looking for a true beast of a machine I highly suggest you check out his listing. However, if you are looking for something that would fall between Alex's and stock M3...please read on.

    *I have a bunch of high res images, but no rep. Please PM me for a link.*

    For sale is a "truly" one of a kind BMW M3. It is 1 of 53 convertibles with this color combination, and the only one to receive a complete Stage 2 package by Active Autowerke.

    This car started life as a stock 1998 BMW M3, but was completely decked out by Active Autowerke to the tune of over $35,000 ($23,650.95 in 1999, $6,851.14 in 2006, and $5,196.33 in 2012). All of the work was done by Active at Active, and it is fully documented. In fact, I have every piece of documentation for this car since the day it rolled of the lot, and all of the work has been done by either Active, BMW or a certified BMW mechanic.

    This car pushes about 470HP. It has never been abused or raced. I purchased the car from the original owner who was an elder gentleman who kept it as a Sunday driver. Which is represented by the less than 42,000 original miles on the odometer.

    The beauty of this car is that it drives like stock, albeit with a lot more of a kick. It drives and handles exactly like a BMW M3 should...not like the disappointing 240HP stock M3s that leave you wanting more.

    The car has received all of its required service and it remains in near perfect operating condition. The tires have about 5,000 miles on them, the rotors and the calipers have a ton of meat on them. This car needs nothing, but a new driver.

    Here is a list of some of the major mods:
    AA Turbo Stage 2/Gen 2 Package at 12 psi boost
    AA Stainless Exhaust
    AA Stage II Intercooler
    AA Front Strut Tower Brace
    Koni Adjustable Shocks and Strut Kit with RD Lower Sports Spring Kit
    Stand-alone F.I. System
    High performance Clutch
    AA Aluminum Flywheel
    Chrome Air Grill
    Brembo 2 Piece Racing Brake Kit
    Eternal Wastegate
    HKS Turbo Timer
    HKS Variable Boost Controller
    AA "X" Brace lower front Chassis
    RD Swaybar Kit
    Dual Gauge A Piller with Boost and Air/Fuel
    OBD II upgrade
    Aluminum Radiator
    AA Diff Support Bracket Kit

    I would rate the interior an exterior at a 7 out of 10. The matching hardtop does not leak, and the soft top has almost never been used.

    I can provide copies of the documentation and any additional pictures by request.

    The car also comes with an additional set of staggered wheels and tires. The wheels are not in the best of shape, but all four of the Perrelli PZERO tires have less than 1000 miles on them.

    The KBB private party value of the car is:
    Excellent - $13,286
    Very Good - $12,961
    Good - $12,761

    The Truecar Private Party Sale Price is
    Low Range: $13,802
    Market Average Sale Price: $12,445
    High Range: $14,235
    Recommended List Price: $16,121

    If you include the cost of the car, there is almost $90,000 in this car (all of which is documented).

    The car and I are in Monterey, Ca.

    I am asking $19,250.

    I'm not sure how to fix it. On my computer it opens up two windows, one of the thumbnail and another of the full sized image. I tried two different image hosting sites and they both seem to do the same thing. Any ideas?

    this might be easier... here is the gallery: http://postimg.org/gallery/1llz25ny/

    I have a tendency to make things harder than they have to be sometimes.

    If there is a Mod that wants to clean up the mess I made...I'd appreciate it.

    Could I clean this mess up? Yes.

    Will I? Probably not. I have a lot to do.

    Well...deal fell through.


    Apparently the buyer's financing was based on him selling his old car before he could buy the M3. It would have been nice if he told me that from the start.


    Car is now back up for sale, but at the price I negotiated with him: $18,500
