1998 M3 Sedan 5-Speed
Offered for sale is this beautiful 1997 BMW M3 Sedan finished in Arctic Silver Metallic over Dove Gray leather interior. This example was ordered new locally by VOB BMW (Now called BMW of Rockville) in Rockville, MD and delivered to its first owner in November 1997. The car has remained locally owned since new, having spent a large portion of its life in Virginia.
These so-called M3/4/5’s (M3, 4-door, 5-speed) are becoming increasingly rare, especially in excellent, well-maintained condition. This car represents 1 of just 387 manual transmission sedans produced in this color combination during the production run from 07/1996 through 05/1999.
