Intro / Exterior
This is a lovely BMW E46 M3, which is a model that is becoming increasingly sought after. The car is absolutely original, unmodified in all aspects, and has been cared for very well, evidenced by the file of history with the car (detailed below). The bodywork of the car is in very good condition with pin-straight body panels and no surface rust present anywhere. This M3 is in the non-sun roof guise, which is particularly sought after by enthusiasts. The metallic silver paintwork is also in nice order, free from any notable scratches or blemishes. Being critical, there are some stone chips to the front of the car and some curb marks to the original alloy wheels that the car sits on.
The black leather interior is in good order and everything works as it should. There are two keys with the car and some of the spec it has includes xenon headlights, steering wheel controls, heated seats, electric seat adjustment, sports mode, Harman Kardon sound package.
The BMW is wonderful to be behind the wheel of and drives just as an M3 should do. The engine is strong with great power and a brilliant raspy noise. The six speed manual gearbox shifts through the gears smoothly and the clutch bites and engages as it should. The car goes through the bends equally wonderfully; in the last few years it has benefitted from new lower arms, and trailing arm bushes and as such feels tight and responsive with no funny noises from any corner of the car. There have also been new brake discs and pads fitted within the last couple of years so the BMW has tremendous stopping power.
There is a nice servicing record with the BMW with lots of invoices demonstrating the work that has been completed on the car in the last few years. Some of the work completed includes; trailing arm bushes, front lower suspension arms, rear suspension springs, tyres, wheel alignment, brake discs and pads all round, brake pipes, ABS sensor, oil pressure valve, diff input, diff seal. The last service intervals are as follows: 25/02/2015 - 81,446 miles, 04/02/2016 - 94,460 miles, 17/01/2017 - 105,950 miles, 28/11/2017 - 118,753 miles, 07/08/2019 - 139,965 miles.
