1999 BMW e36 M3 coupe - Track Car

I am selling my beloved E36 M3 track car. Why? Because it’s time. I’ve had a blast with this car. From being a super-reliable track car, even series winning Time Attack car (2017 Bimmer Challenge B5 Champion) to great canyon runner and weekend cruiser. The car has a fully functioning AC and heater system. Automatic driver and passenger windows. And fully functioning central locking system with two OEM keys.

This is a turn-key track car that is extremely capable and fun to drive. It wouldn’t take much to convert it to a competitive race car (remove the rest of the front interior, finish the cage, add a fire system).

I bought the car at the beginning of 2016 with 187k miles with only one purpose…weekend track car. This car had only one owner previous to me and was originally purchased from Nick Alexander BMW in 1999. It has lived in SoCal since and comes with the original winder sticker and manual. It now has 200k miles on the odometer of the original motor that has been untouched. In the four years that i’ve been running the car I have invested $42k in parts alone and anything that could be upgraded or refreshed for better on-track performance has been done including bushings, mounts, suspension arms, etc. 

This car has been so reliable that I have driven it to Laguna Seca (1:45.4) and Sonoma Raceway (1:56.6), laid down some flyers over the course of a weekend and then drove it home. Yes, the car has tags on it (registration renewed 9/24/19). To me it is the perfect setup. I can cruise to the track on pump gas, rip for 80min and drive home. The perfect balance of power, brakes and weight savings. 

I currently run this car in the B4 category of the Bimmer Challenge here in So Cal and with small mods it can be downgraded to a B5 car. This car can also be set up to run NASA or SCCA TA events. On street tires (Nexen N Fera SUR4) I have done a 1:33.4 at Willow Springs, 2:00.9 at Buttonwillow 13CW and 1:53.4 at Auto Club Speedway (Roval). Basically, its a very capable track car.

The car weighs 2886 as it sits with 1/4 tank of gas. 242bhp & 230lb-ft Tq. .84 hp to 10 lbs. power-to-weight ratio. Further weight reduction possible with removal of A/C, driver and passenger windows, heater core and removal of the remainder of the front interior.

The majority of the work has been performed by JMP Autowerks in Canoga Park, CA. Additional pictures and CarFax available upon request.
