Up for sale is my 1995 BMW M3 Coupe. 140k miles, S50, factory 5 speed I'm the 3rd owner, and purchased it in 2017. I purchased it with the intention of tracking it, but those plans never panned out, and I'm considering moving to a more family friendly project car. That being said, this car drives like nothing else I've owned (in a good way) and I'll miss it when/if it does sell.

Exterior: The car is rust free. Jack points, fenders, wheel wells, and underside are all extremely solid. Cosmos black paint is probably a 7/10-rock chips, fading, and minor dents typical of a 25+ year old car are present, but it still cleans up well.

Interior: It's an e36. The door panels were beyond salvaging when I bought it, so they were replaced with panels from a later airbag car. They're not the best, but they're there. The headliner is also sagging. The manual Vader seats were recently recovered, and are in good shape.

Mechanicals: Engine and transmission are extremely strong. Front and rear suspension were recently completely overhauled. I'll post the maintenance log in the comments below, but all of the common areas of concern on these cars has been addressed. AC and Heat work great, cruise control does not.

Asking $11,000 for GRMers. Flexible on the price. I have spare parts that can be included if the price is right including a spare set of wheels (Kosei K1's) and Vorshlag camber/caster plates (brand new, still in the box). It'd be extremely tough to duplicate this car for the price, and it'd make an awesome weekend driver or track car base for someone. Located in Central Ohio

Does it have any rust?  Does it need anything to go on track?

No rust, and nothing that I know of that would keep it from being track ready!
