2003 BMW M3 Coupe 6-Speed51k Miles, One Family Since New, Complete Service
Winning Bid: $18,500
SELLING AT NO RESERVE!! ONLINE ONLY AUCTION at www.classicpromenade.com. The e46 M3 is considered by many to be the final “true M-car.” Staying true to BMW Motorsport tradition, the e46 M3 is the last of naturally aspirated, high revving inline 6 cylinder engines coupled with a proper manual transmission. This era of M3 is also the last of it’s kind to be offered with relatively few driver assistance options, and is considered to be lightweight, comparatively speaking.
One does not have to look very far to realize the e46 M3 was one of the top sports cars of it’s time, and is still favored by enthusiasts today. However, with so many either being heavily modified, used for track days, totaled, or offered with the less than desirable SMG, there are few unadulterated examples remaining.
However, this particular M3 is an exception! With a one family ownership history, only 51k original miles, and in stock condition, this black on black, 6-speed manual coupe truly represents the driver’s choice when it comes to the e46.
Purchased on August 11, 2003 from BMW of The Main Line in Bala Cynwyd, PA, this M3 has spent most of its life in Pennsylvania and Maryland. It was a weekend and fair weather vehicle, and has been meticulously maintained. This car also has a clean, accident free CARFAX and a perfect service record. In 2018, this M3 transitioned from the original owner to another family member who has driven it about 1,000 miles over the last 3 years.
Mechanically, this M3 is in outstanding shape. It’s been pampered its entire life and has all its regular routine maintenance performed. Approximately 1,000 miles ago, the car got new brake pads, rotors and a fluid flush. An oil change, as well as a number of other small inspections and work was performed. The engine runs very smooth, the clutch has lots of life, and the transmission shifts into gear with authority.
The gorgeous black exterior paint has its depth and shine, and we love the M-Sport colored pin striping. There is some very mild curb rash on a few of the rims, and there is a small chip / gash in the front bumper. Beyond that, we did not notice any other cosmetic defects.
On the interior, this car still has that very distinctive 90’s / early 2000’s BMW leather smell. The gorgeous black leather is in outstanding shape, and it looks like no one has ever sat in the back seats! All touch points, carpets, steering wheel, and shifter show very little to any signs of wear. All electronics function properly, and all LEDs in the instrument cluster illuminate brightly. There is, however, a very small nick on both door interior door handles.
Overall, this M3 is an excellent example of a well loved, well preserved, driver focused example. It’s getting harder and harder to find E46’s that are unmodified and haven’t been abused. We are confident this particular car will satisfy even the most particular of BMW enthusiasts.
For more information and details, please call, email or text Harry Clark at +1.602.245.7200 or email@example.com. This M3 is available for viewing in our Phoenix showroom.
