M3 at 100,000 miles

posted to 1988 bmw m3 on oct 17th, 2009 with tags bmw, cars, and m3

purchased this alpine white 88 e30 m3 from a private seller and drove it home from minneapolis, minnesota.

it has an 8-point roll cage, single omp race seat, schroth 6-point harness, dinan ecu chip, baffled oil pan, custom 3-inch exhaust, and bilstein sport shocks and h&r race springs. it came with two sets of wheels and tires with a full-sized spare.

the odometer reads 83k miles but the odometer gears were blown out long ago (common after 20 years of grease deteriorating the polyurethane gears) so the mileage is closer to 100k according to the previous owner. i've ordered a new set of aftermarket gears and will be reactivating the odometer at 100,000 miles as soon as they arrive.

the heat, air conditioning, radio, and some other minor electrical things have been removed (or rather, not re-installed when it was gutted).
