For Sale: 1998 BMW M3 Convertible




VIN Number:      WBSBK9333WEC42205

Mileage:              83,100

Engine:                3.2 liter 6 cylinder, 240 horsepower

Transmission:     Manual 5-speed stick-shift




The paint color is Estoril Blue Metallic and the top is a black canvas top in great condition with a liner and a clear rear plastic window.  It looks really good and there are no door dings in the rest of the car's paint.  There is one paint chip at the leading edge of the hood, no more than the size of an ant..

The windshield is in excellent shape.

All wheels are the standard 17-inch M-wheels with Kumho Ecsta tires.  The wheels are in very good condition and the tires have about 50% of tread-depth remaining on the front tires, about 70% on the rear tires. Chrome, rubber bumpers, etc. are all in excellent condition. The windows are not tinted.




SEATSMagma leather (light brown) and have been cleaned and treated with Leatherique.  They are in very good condition. All seat and headrest controls work perfectly, with manual adjustments.

DASH DISPLAYS:  All work with no missing pixels.

KEYS:  I have one key to the car, and one valet key.  The key has a light in it that works as it should when the button is depressed.  This car does not currently have keyless entry.

RADIO:  Works perfectly.  The car is equipped to have a factory 6-disc CD changer installed (about $125 on eBay if you so desire).

I have just installed a brand new OEM BMW leather shift knob, so the interior shows virtually no wear except for regular wear to the front seats and wear to the original floor mats.




I know of no mechanical problems with this car.  The steering wheel sometimes squeaks very quietly, but other than that the car is in outstanding mechanical condition.

The convertible top operates just as it should, completely hands-free.

All brake pads are fine. The transmission shifts as it should with perfect clutch operation.

The tires have just been balanced and the car just had a full 4-wheel alignment performed.



The HVAC system functions perfectly, with the heater blowing hot air as it should and the air conditioner blowing very cold air, cold enough to combat our Texas heat. The car features dual automatic climate control.




The car has its original window sticker, and also comes with the plastic piece that can be attached to the front bumper in states that do not require a front license plate.  The car features traction control, a limited-slip differential, cruise control, one-touch window controls including a one-touch button that lowers or raises all windows at the same time.




The car is located in Austin, Texas and is available for inspection by appointment.  I have tried to be accurate and complete in my description but if you have any further questions, feel free to email me (my email address is and I will get back to you within 24 hours.  If you would prefer to speak directly with me, my cell phone number is 512-689-3110.  If I am not able to take your call, please leave your name and number and I will return your call.


I am not a dealer and want the buyer of this car to be as happy with it as I have been. It is an outstanding automobile.


Price: SOLD to the couple from Colorado - Thank you !!!.  The title is free and clear of all liens and is ready for the new owner.


Thank you for your interest   -   Hugh Rucker
