Potential race car Damaged BMW135i for sale

Hi guys

I was unfortunate enough to have an off at Phillip Island race track last week

The car which is a white/coral red 08 N54 manual coupe with 56,000ms, has extensive panel damage and front suspension damage but it is repairable. From what I can see, the drivetrain seems fine but of course I cannot guarantee that.

The inside including seats and upholstery is intact and in good condition other than all the airbags going off.

The car has a clear title and it is not an insurance matter as the accident was on the track

I think the car would make a fantastic race car by having someone strip it out and repair it

The car has an extensive range of mods as you can see from my signature which would set it up well as a race car

I'm not going to attach pics here for all and sundry but if any of you are seriously interested, then please private message me and I'll talk with you and send pics privately

I'm pretty sad about it, as you can imagine. It's been a fantastic car but life goes on. I suffered no injuries which was great.

Maybe my loss could be your gain for any of you who want a potentially awsome race car

PM with and we can talk further

Sorry to hear - terrible news. Good you are OK, and GLWS. I was at the Island on Saturday with the WRX club, and I think you were the 135i that obviously had to pull out? An STI got out of shape on the last corner too at ~4pm, and hit both ends on the start of the pit wall, and ended the day. He was OK, but the car looked finished.

sorry to hear mate, that would be heartbreaking. Out of curiosity did u have DTC on or off? Not being a sticky beak just curious as I am sill wary when I have mine off at eastern creek and have had a few scares here and there.

DTC is never on with R spec tyres on a race track with these cars and I always use R spec tyres on the track

Keep it on if you are using road tyres though
