BMW 3 SERIES (E46) M3 2003
BMW E46 M3 Manual , the last of the proper M Cars!! This has been my dream car since they came out and as this particular car has been in the family for the last 14 years I just had to have it. However I have realised that the car is wasted on me , I get very little time to enjoy the car and as I wont let the kids in the car it gets very little use.
The previous owner bought the car from a BMW dealer and has only ever used it on sunny days , apparently the only time the car has seen rain is if they got caught out in it whilst on their annual holiday to the New Forest .
This M3 has been meticulously maintained throughout its life , the service history shows the all important running in service and has been maintained by either BMW or a BMW specialist, the last two services have seen the car have the door seals replaced , and the boot floor reinforced as a matter of precaution.
The car is totally standard and also come with the original diamond cut wheels but is wearing its 'Summer' wheels at the moment that are genuine BMW E46 CSL wheels.
I have seen a lot of these cars over the years and rarely are they in as good condition as this, being previously owned by a mature guy he has cleaned it more than driven it and stated that it rarely went above 60mph.
This a pampered car and i have continued to do the same having had the car fully detailed and protected when i purchased it and have just carried out an intermediate oil change using Castrol Oil.
I know many people will have a list of questions (many of which are irrelevant in my opinion and is just forum nonsense )so i will try to address the normal questions.
The running in service was done at the correct miles .
No we do not have a record of the big end shells being replaced
No we do not have a record of the Vanos being done
Yes the boot floor has been reinforced
I doubt the VANOS or big end shells require attention as this car has been meticulously maintained and not driven hard . That said if its the only thing that worries you about the car then we maybe willing to replace them for a reduced fee
Cherished plate will be removed and will be back on a 2003 plate
