Carbon Black Metallic paintwork, Black Nappa Leather upholstery, Sequential M gearbox (SMG II) with Drivelogic, 19-inch forged alloy wheels, Electrically folding soft-top in black, Heated and electrically adjustable front sports seats with memory, Front armrest, Park Distance Control (PDC), Automatic Xenon headlights, Rain-sensitive wipers, Air conditioning, BMW Professional satellite navigation, Harman/Kardon sound system, 6CD changer, Dynamic stability control (DSC), Headlight cleaning system, Multifunction M leather steering wheel, Interior mirror with automatic-dip Alarm system, Warning triangle and first aid kit, Wind deflector with storage case, BMW carpet mats, Tracker, Spare key.
The gleaming Carbonschwarz finish looks magnificent paired with those striking 19-inch wheels, the paintwork still presenting in excellent original condition all round. The car is amazingly free from any scuffs or scratches, with only a dusting of light frontal stone chips to report on close inspection. All items of trim remain in fine fettle and the electric folding soft-top is also pristine, operating smoothly at the touch of a button. All in all, a particularly fine example of the fast-appreciating E46 M3.
The black Nappa leather remains in wonderful order. The upholstery boasts a great factory texture and feel, with no shininess or major wear to report. The driver’s bolster is pleasingly scuff-free and the central armrest is like new; the rear seats also appear to have seen little use. Commonly scratch-prone areas such as the satnav screen, console switchgear, and plastic trims all present exceptionally well. At the rear of the car you’ll find a pristine boot area housing the CD changer, tool kit, and wind deflector with storage case.
Barely run-in with only 52k miles on the clock the M3 performs expectedly well on test. Clearly a cherished example from new, the car is accompanied by an excellent service history with nine stamps in the book, six of which are from BMW main agents and the last three from marque specialists. The most recent service has only just been carried out in July this year, less than 100 miles ago; the service before that was an Inspection II.
The forged 19-inch rims are unmarked all round, their polished faces unblemished by any curb marking or lacquer damage, with only the original centre badges showing some light patina. The wheels are wrapped in a matching set of Michelin tyres with ample tread remaining.
This low mileage M3 was first registered in March 2004. It was supplied new by Chelsea BMW and has now driven just 52k miles. Following on from the Running-in check at 1,352 miles, services have been carried out at the following mileages: 4,989 – 13,503 – 26,949 – 39,657 – 43,945 – 50,434 – 51,147 – and most recently at 52,891 miles in July this year. The advisory-free MOT is valid until July 2021.
