Seller Description

Hi Everyone. I am listing for sale my 1998 BMW M Roadster. I put M3 and Z3 in the title in case someone didnt know about this great convertible with the 3.2L Inline 6. Title in hand. Top is new but will need to be reinstalled. I installed it myself and it doesnt fit right (what I get for trying to save a few $). Paint has scratches as to be expected with a 1998. Interior is blk/grey trimmed leather. Check engine light on for MAF sensor and airbag light on. Runs and drives great. Brakes and tires have less then 1000 miles on them. If she were perfect this is a $15,000 car all day. Stealership offered $5K so I will start my auction there. Would rather an enthusiast get her then them. But if a dealer purchases this auction, no worries, money is money just giving someone else the chance first. Wanted to keep her longer with the baby and minivan but the wife doesnt like the new mini van being kept outside and it would be a shame to leave this car outside all the time. Any questions dont hesitate to contact me. Car is located in St. Augustine, Fl and Ive owned her since 2010. Bought her with 85K miles and now has 151K miles averaging about 14.5K miles a year. Ive always used mobil one synthetic for my changes. BMW CD changer in the trunk, but is not hooked up to pioneer cd player installed in the car. Seat belt guides on outside of seats broke off which is common in these cars. It does not impact seat belt performance and it isnt noticeable but they arent there and the holes for the pieces are. $500 non-refundable deposit due within 48hrs of auction end. I do my best to represent the car fully and have sold several vehicles on ebay and I have 100% feedback as a result. The car is in excellent mechanical condition however has broken plastic pieces and the bigger items needing correction I have mentioned. The car is not perfect which is why the auction is starting at such a bargain price. Car is as-is no warranty. Car is listed locally and I reserve the right to end the auction and cancel bids if it sells. I value honesty and integrity so if you have questions, please ask!

It needs quite a bit of TLC, but you can't argue with the starting price. Would make a good driver and light project.
