1997, BMW M3 evolution.
New 6 speed gearbox with new clutch and flywheel in 2022
Mr vanos refurbished vanos with new gears and sensors in 2021.
Just serviced with all new fluids and plugs.
Reconditioned Heasman differential and reinforced, powder coated diff carrier in 2022.
New Bilstein B12 suspension kit all round shocks and eibach springs with Whiteline anti roll bars and polybushes done this year.
Polybushed and powder coated, reinforced rear subframe in 2020.
Refurbished unmarked style 24 original wheels with a staggered set up. Plenty of tread left on the tires too.
Unmarked original black leather sports interior with extended leather pack from factory.
Paintwork is in good condition with no rust but I'd respray the rear bumper if I were keeping it. I've factored the cost of painting this into my price already.
Hardtop included if asking price is met ONLY. Has a manual soft top with no rips or leaks.
Full service history with every booklet and original wallets from new. Stacks of receipts. Even has all 3 keys including the valet key! Always kept in garage in my ownership.
Awesome original car that wants for nothing, all the big jobs done for peace of mind motoring. Enthusiast owned.
10 months MOT with no advisories.

I always wanted an M3 evo and spent ages looking for this one. Now I want to move on. I've enjoyed it for 6 years, but have other cars that interest me now. Done less than 60 miles in two and a half years. Only drove it to MOT centre and back this year. Just not being used as much as it should be. Iconic sports car. One of the first cars to produce 100bhp per litre. Legendary engine design with graphite coated conrods. First production car designed with CAD. Best black on black colour combi with matching hardtop.
