1999 Alpine White BMW M3 Coupe

The 1999 E36 M3 was the pinnacle of BMW performance engineering at the time. The 1999 model year was the last and most revised version of the E36 M3 and remains a favorite among E36 enthusiasts. Tastefully ‘upgraded’ M3s are becoming somewhat of a relic these days. For every stock or lightly massaged M3 for sale there seem to be five that have some awful body kit, spoiler or turbo kit. Here we have a low mileage 1999 M3 Coupe in gorgeous Alpine White that has a few desirable upgrades.

Year: 1999
Model: M3
Engine: 3.2 liter inline-6
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: 29,500 mi
Price: Reserve Auction

This is a super clean and rare 1999 BMW M3 with only 29K miles. With the addition of some very tasteful mods it makes this car a perfect M3. The cleanest 1999 BMW M3 in white for sale on the market. Own one of BMW’s rarest treasures, the heart of the “M” program.

Factory & Aftermarket Options:
This unique BMW M3 is loaded with a lot of factory options such as power windows, power seats and more. Aftermarket options are: Rogue Engineering Short Shift Kit, Alpine Head Unit, Halo Headlights w/ HID, Rear Spoiler, Solar Adaptive Window Tint, Active Autowerkes Exhaust, ST Coilover Suspension, Hamann Wheels and more.

From an aesthetic stand point, this M3 is done just right. Alpinweiss is the sharpest color for the E36 M3 and the stance is perfect thanks to those Hamann PG3s. The carbon M-wheel really pops against the white “Vader” seats making the inside of this M3 as appealing as the exterior. Other visual cues like the Active Autowerkes exhaust and the upgraded HID Halos give the M3 a touch of modern but don’t make it look tacky like LED strips on every Corolla or Jetta you see cruising around town. You can tell these upgrades were finely chosen to enhance the vehicle and not just thrown together as “cool mods.” I see bidding breaking the $20K mark but would be willing to guess the reserve for such a fine example of Munich’s mid-size muscle car being closer to $25K.

    Very nice. I prefer them without wings but this car looks very clean.

    Considering what Enthusiast Auto Group is selling low milage E36 M3’s for I would expect this car to hit mid 20’s.

    Tasteful is a very subjective description. What one person finds tasteful, another person may find, well, not. I believe this car would be worth more if it was in bone stock condition.

    Here’s a pet peeve of mine: if I am a potential buyer, I don’t need to know about how the cars came to be or what they did on racing circuits. I DO need to know as much as possible about the history of the specific car being sold. This ad is full of description about the E36 M3 in general, but seems to be lacking information about this M3 in particular. There is a major issue of no mention of service records being available and minor issue of no mention of whether or not the take-off parts are part of the sale.

    I tend to agree with Poorhouse’s price assessment above. In the end it will come down to where the reserve is set.

    Kevin, You are correct, it is completely subjective. In my mind these are tasteful modifications compared to some of the junk you see people throw on these wonderful machines. I would add that brands like Hamann, Rogue Engineering and Active Autowerkes are well known and respected for their quality in the BMW community.

    It is sad that the seller basically plagiarized Wikipedia’s write up on the E36 M3 for their description. More details would definitely help a car like this sell for a higher price.

    this is a dealer ad plain & simple….
    no mention of service…especially with low miles….these cars need to be driven
    interior shots are more “Car Mag” than informative as to condition…would love to see the side bolsters of the Vaders…
    the rims are a question of taste…they are very good quality as is the exhaust….
    as far as his “MOST REVISED” comment….the 3.2 litre gave you a bit more torque over the 3.0litre
    Hp was unchanged at 240…and quite frankly many of us prefer the OBI as opposed to the OBII that is in 96 to 99 cars because of the ease of tuning….
    but that was about it from a performance perspective….different steering wheel yeah..nicer..yes…but this one on the car with the CF is not OEM
