    Project Tightie (Stage 3 Gintani Supercharged + Many Many Extras)

    The past few weeks I have been tossing the idea of selling my car, I think now it's time to let it go. If someone is serious about purchasing the car, I will be more then happy to make a deal and find a new home for my beast. I want to sell the car as a whole and if someone actually wants the car (and doesnt want some mods) ill be happy to take them off. Other then that, I'm not planning on parting out. It's going to take me a long time to make a list and come to a price but i'll be working on it . I'll be updating this thread daily. I have to make sure I get everything.

    If anyone is wondering, I will do a motor swap plus my stage 3 set up also.

    Please email me if you want more information or have any questions: (tightie@gmail.com) since it is easier then sending PMing but if you want to PM, feel free to. I visit the site frequently throughout the day.

    2008 BMW E92 Alpine White/Black M3 Coupe

    6MT
    Cold Weather Package
    Premium Package
    Convenience Package

    Mileage: 25,000
    Miles on motor: 3,000

    I am the first owner, the car has never been into an accident. My car was a daily driver for the first nine months of ownership, after that I had some issues the car was down for about a year. The car is literally like brand new, I drive it now on the weekends. I had the car detailed every other week. I have taken very good care of this car, it has been my favorite car I have ever owned and the fastest by far. I had the car professional (mini-widebodied) in the rear. Each fender is pulled out about half an inch on each side. It looks amazing and I can fit 315s in the rear with no problems.* I can go on for days about the car but Iíll stop while Iím ahead. I have the service records, I have most of the receipts also. The OG window sticker is 69,420. I have that also, along with both keys, books, the whole 9 yards.

    Iím going to list the mods I have on the car (the list will continue as I remember more things and I will list the average going price new so you can see how much is actually in this car)

    Gintani Lowered Compression Motor (Pistons, Rods, etc)
    Gintani Supercharger 3 System - $31,995 (Not sure, need to double check)
    Gintani (3x Carbon Clutch+Flywheel) - $3800
    Gintani Fuel Upgraded System - $3500
    Euro Bumper Conversion/ Mini Wide body - $2300
    Gintani Mid Section - $1995
    Akrapovic Ė Slip on Titanium Exhaust - $3300
    Stoptech Trophy Big Brake Kit - $6500
    KW V3 Suspension - $2900
    Macht Schnell Pod w AEM GaugesĖ 1000
    Macht Schnell Seat Module Ė 300
    Macht Schnell TPMS Module - 200
    Recaro Pole Position - $2000
    Slider, Macht Schnell Floor Mounts , Seat Belt Receptacle - $850
    Macht Schnell Stud Conversion Kit - $150
    EAS 2011 Rear Taillight Conversion Kit - $600
    3F Front - $1695
    3f Wing - $1395
    3F diffuser - $1595
    Vorsteiner Hood - $2700
    Autopower roll cage (never installed + paint) = $1000
    Volk TE37 SL 18" with Falken 615k (275 - 315) = $4300
    19" VMR VB3 (Orange) with R888 (265/295) = $2500
    AEM 5 Gallon Meth Tank + Set up = $1000

    & I think there is more, I just can't think..

    That's around $75,000+ in mods..

    Do I expect anything close to that ? No. I know I'm going to take a huge loss on the car leaving it the way it is. I would rather sell the car as a whole but I'll leave it on.. if I see that people want the parts, I'll start splitting everything up and selling it. Feel free to respond with what you want, do NOT pm me please. My PM box gets full rather quickly.

    The car is according to KBB.com is Excellent $50,335 Good $47,835 Fair $44,035
    Around 75k in mods.. Shoot me a offer and we will work from there.



    Josh

    I never drive the car, I rather keep the cash and use it in another way. Maybe buy a AWD car that has no problem putting traction down or a track car.. Not sure what I want to do at this point. If a serious buyer wants to come check out the car and drive it, I have no problem.

    It's a AutoPower bolt in cage. Should fit in the 335 just fine. Google it.

    Don't really have one to be honest. I listed the car with all the modifications I have put into it, and the current price of the car. If someone is actually serious about buying the car as is, I'm sure they will step forward with a honorable price.

    But you haven't even gotten it up to high boost to try? Haven't even really published any details?

    It makes no sense man.

    I have taken the car up to 14.5 psi. It's holding up fine. I have results, 60-130 runs, dynos but I wont be posting anything. I'm not into this tuner B/S anymore. Who ever builts a better car, go for it. I'm out of the game. If the buyer actually wants, I will be more then happy to supply. I will leave Gintani with what results they want to post.

    Sure, I copied and pasted that from my OG thread. Feel free to PM me. No difference in my life, emailing is just faster since it comes directly to my phone.

    Damn man, the car is beautiful and mods flow so well together. What compression is the motor?

    Damn Josh when I saw this I felt like crying. It's too soon man, as sticky said you barely even enjoyed it. It is understandable tho, AWD is needed with that much power. You should look into a TTRS, maybe porsche Turbo? Anyways man, Goodluck with sale. I'll see you soon my friend

    well said, I feel you, it makes it so unpleasant. Until I had an M3, I never realized how dirty the car business is, made me never want to really mod my car again or be around the negativity.

    Josh is a legit man, you couldnt be buying the car from a better guy.
