    Hello, up for sale is my '98 M3 sedan in Hellrot red with 5spd manual gearbox. I've been told this is a relatively rare spec. This car is pristine at 68,000 miles. Garage kept. Like new condition - needs nothing. Annual service completed last month included new A/C tensioner and PS reservoir. Moving to new house and not enough garage space unfortunately, so she goes up for sale. Future classic. Looking for offers in the low $20k range. Thanks for looking!

    I had a silver 1998 M3 sedan it was a fantastic car. This one is a M3/4/5 in Hellrot, its super rare and one of the best driving cars ever made. I kid you not. Its like driving a surgeon's scalpel.

    She is an amazing driver! I brought this car because I believe it to be investment quality, so I've been trying to keep the miles down. But it's hard not to drive it every day!

    awesome car. First car I ever bought was a 1995 M3 and I loved it. I took it to the drag strip, autocrossing, and even a full track day. I was sad to see it go. It was the best handling car ever. So easy to push to the limit and easy to safe it if I got in trouble.

    Based on the pics it has the upgraded trip computer, but it does not have heated seats. Other major options would be power seats (can't tell). Rear spoiler looks to be factory (if added there is a third brake light inside the cabin). Great cars. I have one with 37K miles, and I love it.

    Agree that this generation ///M is a future classic -- have driven many of them and the driving characteristics have such a good feel about them. GLWS.

    I daily drive the coupe version 99 m3 manual, and it is very engaging even on our 45 mph back roads. Plus great for ax and de’s.

    I bought a 98 M3 four door, European delivery in May 1998. Barebone, manual seats, no sunroof and the only option was the tail spoiler. What a lovely time I had on the Autobahn, blasting from Munich to Paris, and totally ignoring the break in period. It never missed a beat in the 15 years I had it and at 140k miles I sold it to a family member. What a fun car !!!

    I had a '97 til my son totaled it (he didn't have permission to take it) in 2013. I had 115,000 miles on it and it was still great. I'm sure I'd still be using it as my daily driver today. What a great car.

    I think your son should buy you this one as reimbursement. ;)

    All the best,

    Nice E36. I'd agree that a Hellrot 5spd sedan is relatively rare.

    I currently own a 98 estoril blue 5 spd and I always stop and stare when I open the garage. These cars are so fun to drive, and extremely reliable as well.

    GLWS!

    I was pretty mad that day. Refused to be in the same room with him for some hours.

    I'm the proud new owner folks. Great car - can't wait for the spring and nice, salt-free weather to enjoy it on the east coast.
