Featured is a RARE MANUAL 1997 BMW M3 SEDAN in EXCELLENT condition. This is a 1-OWNER car with UNDER 172,700 MILES. The exterior of the car is finished in beautiful Cosmos Black Metallic complimented by a pristine Dove Grey leather interior with Motorsport Stripe Tri-Color accents - an absolutely STUNNING combination. VIN: [WBSCD9323VEE05293]

This 5-speed BMW M3 Sedan is loaded to the gills with all the desirable factory options. This particular car comes with Cosmos Black Metallic paint ($475), RARE 5-Speed Manual Transmission, Harmon-Kardon Premium Sound System with 6-Disc CD Changer ($675), Factory "M" Double Spoke II Wheels ($1,450), Heated Front Seats ($500), Full On-Board Computer ($500), Power 2-Way Sunroof ($950), Cruise Control ($475), and BMW Factory Alarm. Don't miss the chance to own a VERY RARE MANUAL 1997 BMW M3 Sedan loaded with all the right options!

The 1997 M3 was available in two models - coupe and sedan. The sedan was made in far fewer numbers than the coupe and finding a sedan with a manual transmission is very difficult given that the majority of them were ordered with an automatic transmission. The M3 found its place as a sport edition to the 3-series model line and incorporates a sport-tuned suspension with 17-inch wheels, tires and special brakes among other significant upgrades. Standard features include all season traction control and a limited slip differential. Additional standard features include leather sport bucket seats, a 5-speed manual transmission, and a dual zone climate control system, which allows for both driver and passenger to adjust temperatures individually. Safety features include dual front impact air bags, an anti-lock braking system, and front and rear restraints. An On-Board computer system is standard with a Full Trip computer optional.

The 1997 BMW M3 SEDAN offers the performance and exhilaration of a sports car with the convenience of seating for 5 occupants, four doors, a usable backseat, and a decent-size trunk. It features a stiffer suspension, limited slip differential, and larger wheels than standard 3-Series coupe, which allows it to take corners at amazing speeds. The M3 has more aggressive-looking front and rear bumpers, aerodynamic mirrors, and "M" logos are among the minor exterior differences. Upgraded front seats with Motorsport Stripe accents, deeper side bolsters, and myriad power adjustments are an improvement over the already-stellar seats in the standard 3-Series models.

The 1997 M3 Sedan appeared worldwide with the 3.2-liter "S52" engine. At 240 horsepower and 236 ft/pounds of torque, the M3's engine produced horsepower numbers that were only achieved by the world's best performance 6-cylinder engines. The best part is that this car gets fantastic gas mileage while being a top performer on the street or track - 20mpg in the city and 28mpg on the highway. The stock BMW M3 has produced performance numbers of zero to sixty in just 5.5 seconds and the quarter mile in just 14.1 seconds. The top speed of the M3 is electronically limited at 137 MPH.

The 1997 BMW M3 comes with very convenient standard features such as intermittent windshield wipers, front impact airbags with intelligent occupant sensors, AM/FM audio, traction control just to name a few. The Nappa leather M3 sport seats make for a very comfortable ride in such a well-performing sports car. All-Season Traction Control (ASC), which is activated/deactivated with a console switch, can improve traction under difficult conditions; this truly is one of the best luxury sports cars money can buy AND YOU CAN DRIVE IT IN ANY CLIMATE!!!

This 1997 BMW M3 SEDAN has the factory "M" Double-Spoke II wheels. These optional wheel sizes are 17"X7.5" in the front and 17"x8.5" in the rear. The 17" wheels are in great condition. The tire sizes are 225/45ZR17 in front and 245/40ZR17 in the rear. The wheels are wrapped in the very expensive Michelin Pilot Sport tires and have almost full treadlife remaining, about 85% all around. Even with the huge amount of power from this 240hp engine, this car has tons of traction and grip; it REALLY PULLS HARD! This 1997 BMW M3 comes with a full size alloy rim spare wheel that is in excellent condition. This car also has a fantastic antitheft system featuring an immobilizer built into the stock computer system along with the "code" feature in the optional Full On-Board Computer for further protection. We have 2 Keys/Alarm Remotes for this car with the original books, and maintenance/service records.

This BMW M3 is in excellent shape and its condition is consistent to a car with less than half the mileage both inside and out! The body is clean and free of any major blemishes, scratches, or dents. Like any used car there might be various minor imperfections around the car from everyday driving. There are a couple very minor rust spots on the front nose panel, on the front driver door, and the rear passenger door. Also, the steering is a bit tight and needs lubrication from time to time. The universal joint in the steering column should eventually be replaced - this is a $40 part that I can include if the car is purchased at the Buy-it-Now price. This M3 also comes with Cosmos Black painted Foglight Delete covers. The interior is in excellent shape and was obviously well-maintained by a non-smoker. THE SEATS IN THIS M3 SEDAN LOOK AS THOUGH THEY HAVE NEVER BEEN USED!! The A/C blows strong and ice cold. Don't miss this opportunity to own one of the BEST PERFORMING SEDANS EVER MADE!

Like all of our inventory cars, we had it inspected and serviced and it passed with a clean bill of health - This car is IMMACULATE! We have also done a complete fluid change and inspection including oil change! This BMW M3 comes with recently installed MICHELIN PILOT SPORT TIRES. The amount of maintenance just spent on this car will provide the next owner with tons of savings over the other used M3s on the market. This 1997 BMW M3 needs nothing but gas and a new owner!

We can't stress how hard it is to find a MANUAL 1997 BMW M3 SEDAN in this condition, let alone at this price! This is a well-cared-for vehicle previously owned by non-smoker. This truly is a one of a kind BMW M3 that turns heads everywhere it goes. Here is your chance to get a deep discount on a mint BMW M3 Sedan that originally cost OVER $44K BRAND NEW!!

This car is CARFAX and AUTOCHECK Certified with no known accidents. This car is fully serviced and ready to go for its new owner. Please click on the "VIEW FREE REPORT" at the top of the page to view the FREE CARFAX AND AUTOCHECK REPORTS that we have supplied. This car is a 1-owner vehicle.

Terms of Sale Overview

We reserve the right to end this listing at anytime should the vehicle no longer be available for sale. The following terms of sale apply to all of our listings.
By submitting an offer, clicking on the "Buy-It-Now" button, or bidding on this vehicle, you are entering into a legally binding contract to purchase this vehicle and you agree to abide by all terms of sale set forth herein. The following terms of sale apply to all of our online sales including our "No Reserve" Auctions. If, at the end of the auction, you are the highest bidder, or we have accepted your offer, or if you have clicked on the "Buy-It-Now" button, you have won this vehicle and you have entered into a legally binding contract. 
Payment Information/Methods
Paypal (Deposit ONLY), Cash (In Person), certified check, bank transfer, or 3rd-party financing. All funds must be in US dollars only. Please be sure to have full payment and/or approved financing in place BEFORE making your final bid. Call us for more information.
If you are the winning bidder, you must contact us within 24 hours of winning the auction to set up payment arrangements. It is the buyer's responsibility to contact the dealership; it is not the responsibility of Exclusive Auto Imports to contact the winning bidder. The successful high bidder will submit a $500 non-refundable deposit within 24 hours of the close of the auction to secure the vehicle. We require a $500.00 non-refundable deposit within twenty-four (24) hours of winning the auction. This deposit can be made through PayPal with any major credit card to the email address: "". In the alternative, the buyer can make a deposit via secure wire transfer. If the deposit is not received within the required timeframe and alternative arrangements are not made, Exclusive Auto Imports reserves the right to make the vehicle available for sale to another buyer.
Payment of Balance Due
The buyer agrees to pay the remaining balance due (plus applicable fees and taxes) within 5 days of the close of the auction. The buyer must email/fax Exclusive Auto Imports a legible copy of his/her state issued driver's license and a current/valid insurance card after the deposit is made. As final payment for the vehicle, we will accept a certified bank check/cashier's check, bank loan check, wire transfer, or cash. We will not release the vehicle and/or title until funds clear. All financial transactions must be completed and funds received by Exclusive Auto Imports before delivery of the vehicle can be scheduled. If you pay cash, you can pickup the vehicle immediately once the currency is verified - there may be a small fee applied for excessive cash handling situations. If you pay by wire transfer the vehicle will be available for pickup once funds are available in our account. If you pay by bank check, you will have to wait nine (9) business days or possibly longer until the funds clear. If payment is made using a check we will hold all vehicles and titles for nine (9) days or until the funds clear.
Additional Fees and Taxes
The exact amount you can expect to pay for state-required tax, title, and tags will vary depending upon (1) the state in which you live, (2) the county where you will register your vehicle, (3) the weight of your vehicle, (4) whether you will have a trade-in vehicle, and (5) the type of license plate you select. All car dealerships have a mandatory dealer fee that they HAVE to charge ALL customers by state law. Some dealerships have been known to charge more than $1000.00, but we keep our fee as low as possible. Our dealer processing fee is $375.00 and covers the preparation of the vehicle, a professional detailing, the preparation of documents, filing tax, title and registration forms, and the expenses of maintaining inventory. Vehicles titles may be held by banks or lenders as collateral for loans. In many cases there may be a delay in receiving the original documents up to 21 days from the time we pay a vehicle off. While we usually have all titles in our possession at closing, there are rare occasions where we may be waiting for them to arrive. All titles will be overnighted at our expense if that is the case. Out of state buyers are responsible for all state, county, city taxes and fees, as well as title/registration fees in the state that the vehicle will be registered.
The buyer is responsible for shipping and/or pickup of the vehicle. All shipping charges are the buyer's responsibility. We will assist the buyer with finding a shipping company and usually save our customers hundreds of dollars when shipments are booked through our broker - call us at 954-972-2277 for more information. We deal with both "open" and "enclosed" transport trucks. If the vehicle is going to be shipped, full payment must be received before the vehicle is delivered to the shipping company. We will not be responsible in any way for claims arising from shipping damage. Shipping companies have insurance policies that protect buyers against damage. If you choose to pickup the vehicle yourself, we can meet you at our local airport. This service is free of charge; however, we do require advance notice. Also, certain additional state fees, such as Florida state sales tax, may/will apply if the vehicle is delivered within the state of Florida regardless of the residence of the buyer. It is very common for shipping to be a more cost-effective option when weighed against all the actual costs for picking up the vehicle in person.
If you are planning to finance this vehicle through a lending institution, you must secure the loan prior to bidding. Secure all finances and be able to follow through with the payment before you bid. Please call us if you require assistance in obtaining financing.
