It seems as if winter decided to hang on for another weekend on the east coast of the United States this week. However, summer will be here before we know it and with it comes the desire for open top motoring. This 1999 BMW M3 for sale in Arlington, Virginia is on offer from the second owner who has had the vehicle in his possession since it was a year old. While the M3 Convertible might not be the first choice for the hardcore //M enthusiast, this one is perfectly suited for those lazy jaunts to the beach, especially since these E36 convertibles have more than adequate rear seat and trunk space for those weekend jaunts to the beach.

1999 BMW M3 Convertible
Black interior – leather seats
The car is a factory original. No modifications have been performed. I am the second owner. I purchased the car when it was a year old with less than 9,000 miles.
Car has been serviced at Bethesda Imports and Pham Care Center Inc. Only Premium Unleaded gas has been used. I’ve changed the oil every 3,000 miles. Only synthetic oil has been used.
Issues – probably needs a new convertible top and radio doesn’t work
Major work done – replaced radiator about a year ago (a friend did it for me so i don’t have any receipt or record)
Brakes and tires in good shape
Includes a car cover
While this M3 isn’t perfect, it has long ownership and its unmodified state working in its favor. The seller has decided to part with it only because having two cars is a challenge with the limited parking in his neighborhood. It needs a few items addressed, of course, but having seen this car in person, I can attest that it would be a good starting point for someone willing to put in a little bit of work in order to have a very nice driver. Given the mileage, you wouldn’t be averse to using this car as intended, either. Of all the E36 M3s, the convertibles are the bargains of the bunch, if you are willing to forgo a little bit of the performance edge the //M badge offers. We’ve seen some E36 M3 Convertibles with mileage well past 125,000 fetch anywhere in the $7,000 to $12,000 range depending on condition and provenance, so the asking price here isn’t too far out of line. If it’s an E36 M3 you are looking for and the body style isn’t of particular concern, the convertibles should be high up on your list, as they are offering a lot of bang for the buck.
