1999 BMW M3 w/ 5.3 LSx


Recommended Posts



Ended up with this through some horse trading from a good friend of mine and have decided it is taking too much time away from working on my E30 M3. It is a perfect project and all the hard items have been completed. Perfect base to build a track car or race car - the car is incredibly balanced as it sits.


Car is located in Memphis, TN. Would like to get $14,000 out of it or best offer. I am 100% open to trades. [email protected]


  • 130k miles on chassis
  • L33 aluminum 5.3 w/ LS6 intake
  • Mail order tune by Wait4MePerformance
  • Vorshlag headers and mount kit
  • 2.5" steel one piece driveshaft built and balanced by a local driveshaft shop
  • All gauges work
  • Car runs and drives great. I daily drove it for a few weeks while the weather was decent.
  • Suspension is very solid. This is one of the most balanced cars I've driven fast. It would go through a slalom flat out.


I rewired and shortened the whole harness when I got the car. The OBD2 port is wired in and works. Has new knock sensors and knock sensor harness.



The bad:

  • Cracked windshield
  • Wiring harness needs to be loomed.
  • It needs the heater hoses run. The wires for the valve have been extended to the passenger side. The lines are already run from the heater core to the valve just needs to be finished up
  • Interior has normal E36 interior issues. Door panels falling off, etc and has a few pieces missing.
  • The front of the car was painted and doesn't match the rest of the car perfectly. The paint on the rest of the car is in okay shape for the age and I was planning on having the front repainted.
  • Windshield wipers need to be installed. I have the arms just need the wipers themselve
  • Missing the middle trim piece on the front and the one on the driver's side fender [both in the picture]
  • It needs the ABS harness extended for the ABS to work
  • And on that note, one of the rear tires has a slight flat spot from an autox
  • It needs a 3.90 rearend. 6th is useless until about 80mph and you can hit 80 in second. Not that great for autox/track days.
  • I would recommend a professional tune on a dyno. The current one is just okay
