BMW 3 SERIES (E46) M3 SMG 2004

Fully Stamped BMW Service History, 11000 miles until next service due with no issues. Subframe checked for cracks by BMW at last service earlier this year and was all fine. At the same time they changed the 4 main rear subframe rubber bushes under BMW warranty. SMG relay changed under warranty to updated one by BMW. Rear springs changed about a year ago, common issue on M3’s. Also have paperwork for other warranty work carried out. All 6 coil packs replaced with Bosch a year ago. Just some of upkeep done. Low miles for a 16 year old car. Titanium Silver with Black Nappa Leather Seats, Tilt and Slide Sun Roof. 19inch refurbished Original Alloys In shadow chrome finish with Michelin Pilot Sport Tyres all round, the original Continental M3 fitment tyres are outdated compared to the Michelin Pilot Sport rubber now fitted on all new M3/M4s. I've driven both so know. Heated front seats with memory driver. Super comfortable. Folding wing mirrors, Genuine BMW Pro SATNAV with single CD, Digital TV, BMW Bluetooth Phone Prep, 6 Disc CD changer. Bluetooth AUX module for music streaming. Excellent condition for age. No expense spared on upkeep with genuine BMW parts. Used everyday and completely reliable. If you're looking for an un-modified E46 M3 SMG model then, look no further. People who diss SMGs normally haven’t spent any time learning how to drive them. They have 10 gear change settings and one hidden one. It’s exactly the same as the manual box but with a computer changing the gears, simply backing off on the throttle slightly as it changes gear in auto or paddle shift mode as you would with a standard manual removes any harshness. They can’t be over rev’d and the auto throttle blip on down shift is to die for, plus clutches last a lot longer as owners don’t try and do donuts or burnouts. Don't waste time looking at examples that haven't been looked after properly or cheaply mechanically, know this one has been and by BMW main dealers. I pay for a genuine comprehensive BMW monthly extended warranty that the new owner can look to continue without lapse of cover if they want extra piece of mind. The only option this car didn't have on the options list ticked was the rear electric blind. So effectively its fully loaded. Call me to discuss car in more detail, I'm only selling as it's the right time for me too as I need to change to an X5 size car. Registered May 2004 so Genuine facelift model. These E46 M3s are seen as the best models made to date by BMW enthusiasts and are only going up in value for excellent examples like this one. Only myself and a previous owner since 2007 who only drove 10k miles in 10 years.. I've spend £2500 having the expected front and rear wheel arch and side valance surface rust on E46 coupes all sorted before a problem and the underside arches wax oiled. These are hidden problems you cannot see. Loads of history on the car. Two main keys and plastic valet key. I would keep the car as I love it, especially that straight six rasp (it's actually my second E46 M3 as regretted selling the first one). I know I will this one, but family needs means it's time to change. Next MOT due 20/12/2020.
