Body & Paintwork:
Chosen by BMW as the promotional launch colour for the E46 M3, this lovely example is finished in Phoenix Yellow Metallic.

The bodywork is all original, with a great vibrant finish.
All trims, badges, lights & glass are original, presenting very well. The front screen still has the BMW service/ running in decal attached, with the rear still displaying the original supplying dealer decal.

The black fabric hood is in excellent condition, operating perfectly.
All wheel arch’s are superb, zero corrosion on the car, a real step back in time.

A few small touch ins as you would expect, and one rear wheel has a kerb mark which the owner left alone as they wanted to retain originality.

A fantastic BMW M Car, one of the best in existence.


Interior & Trim:
Soft luxurious Nappa leather in Kiwi is the perfect combo for the Phoenix Yellow exterior.

The beautifully clean upholstery portrays all the hallmarks of the super low mileage.
All switchgear is in great condition, everything being totally original & as BMW intended.

A great specification when ordered new, which included BMW mats, so this example has worn genuine BMW carpet mats from new.
Carpets still look superb & the rear seats look to have had no usage.

The chunky M leather multi-function steering wheel displays the blue and red stitching & looks like new, as do the pedal rubbers, gear knob & handbrake handle.

Far superior to the usual offerings, this M3 is a beautiful example.


Engine:
The somewhat legendary E46 M3, highly regarded as one of the best drivers cars to have been produced by BMW M division.

6 cylinder in-line powerplant is unmistakable in both sound and driving experience, especially when a manual gearbox example such as this.
An electronically limited top speed of 155mph and 0-60 time of around 5 seconds.

The engine bay of this example is in great order as can be seen by the pictures, exactly as it left the production line.


Running Gear:
As you would fully expect, the running gear is all in good order.

The manual gearbox operates beautifully, brakes feel good & the car drives well.

Original tyres are still fitted, so of course we would advise these are changed if the car is to be used – purely due to age.
