2008 58 BMW M3 coupe, only 42k miles (will rise in use)
-2 previous owners
-Full BMW service history (details below)
-Sparkling Graphite Metallic paint - excellent condition
-Novillo Black full leather interior - very good condition
This is a cherised example but is just not getting used hence for sale. Very reliable in my ownership with just the throttle actuator issue and a broken front spring due to a pothole.
The common fault of throttle actuator failure occured a couple of years ago on this car, both units have been fitted with uprated gears, one unit having electronic refurb too (replacement of parts) by ECU testing.
I purchased the car in June 2012 from Knights BMW as an approved used car on c16k miles with full BMW service history including the vital 1,200 mile running in service.
The car had it’s major service including plugs, diff fluid etc in June 2018 and has had an interim oil change by me this year (this is above and beyond the service schedule). It needs nothing until 05/2020 when i would expect it to be a minor service.
I have a set of front discs and pads which I can include/fit for the right price, I bought these when I swapped the rear discs but when I measured the fronts there was life left in these so have not yet been fitted.
The car is in amazing condition for its age, i dont think you'd find a better 58 plate car. Overall superb paintwork, more than welcome to inspect. Interior is very good, leather well maintained with typical scuffs on the drivers seat bolster. Some very minor scuffs to painted interior trim
2 small scratches to rear bumper are the only faults I can find in the paintwork.
Full BMW history (see detail below), the service is every 24 months on these cars but since 2015 (c31k miles) I have changed the oil between BMW services annually

While the car was apart the bank1 actuator was upgraded with new gears, no electronic refurb was required on this unit (DIY).

MOTd till June 2020
MOT history is available online as with all cars. In my ownership it has only ever had an issue with tyres wearing on the inside (again this is common in these cars) - the latest alignment was tweaked for this.
This is the 6 speed manual. This generation is the last naturally aspirated M3 (v8!) and sounds epic, it also has hydraulic power steering with M dynamic mode.
All the standard E92 M3 equipment including
Electric memory adjustable front seats
Electric heated front seats
Dual zone climate control
Rear parking sensors
Light Package (additional interior lights, puddle lights under door handles)
Nav system pro – this includes the pro audio with underseat subs (sounds great) – this is a much needed option on these cars
Mobile phone prep (Bluetooth)
Rear parking sensors
19" 220M alloy wheels - powdercoated black
MODIFICATIONS (all of which can be easily removed if not required)
Pure Highway DAB 300di - this can readily be removed but provides DAB through the standard stereo
Bluetooth audio widget (plugs into the Pure) to allow streaming music from your phone or tablet or other Bluetooth device
BMW Performance gearknob which has less play than the standard item
Genuine BMW performance black kidney grills
Absolutely no canvassers.
No Part exchange.
The DAB radio can be removed if required.
The kidney grills can be swapped for original chrome finish that came with the car.
I have a UK mod backbox which bypasses part of the silencer for more noise, i can supply this with the car if required.
