BMW M3 convertible individual e46 (manual)
BMW M3 (e46)
Year (April) 2002
MOT sept 2021
Comes in the rare combination of estoril blue with champagne leather…also equipped with the very much desired factory manual gearbox.
FSH including inspection II recently carried out using genuine BMW georbox/diff oil/plugs etc etc.
I have also carried out oil and filter changes every 2500 miles during my ownership using Castrol edge supercar.(X3)
Rear tyres have been recently changed to Michelin pilot sports(fronts are legal so haven’t changed these yet… it was next on my list).
I’ve had the subframe checked during its recent service and all is ok as well as the soft top roof being in perfect working order.
Brake discs and pads were checked at service and all are still in good condition and working as they should.
Pre delivery check BMW
1021 miles running in check BMW(all important!)

There has been a mileage correction on the DVLA website at 20,000 miles where an MOT tester has recorded the mileage as 200,000.I investigated this with the DVLA prior to my purchase of the car and was told it was clearly an error but after 7 days it cannot be amended and had reverted back to the correct mileage at the following MOT.(buyer is welcome to investigate for themselves to put their mind at ease).
There was an instrument cluster change due to a fault between 36-47,000 that also shows on its service records but again I investigated and the DVLA MOT check ties up with the correct mileage so i was happy to purchase.
The car has also benefited from a full BMW extended warranty up to 40,000 miles.
This included the bearings/shells at 34,000 along with a steel head gasket.
There are 5 pages of items done under warranty at BMW.
The car drives absolutely perfectly with no unwanted noises and feels as tight to drive as a near new car!
The engine sounds and runs perfectly also.
The paintwork is in extremely good condition-as per the photos.(recently had full paintwork decontamination and 2 stage machine polish).
Interior is in good condition considering the car is nearly 20 years old with no rips in the leather although it does have general wear where you would expect. Also has heated front seats.
Exhaust back box has been changed for a scorpion stainless steel item but the original will be supplied with the car for the new owner should they wish to change back.
Private registration will be removed before sale is completed and it will revert back to its 02 registration.
(Original front number plate surround will also be supplied with the sale).
Steering wheel has been retrimmed by the reputable Royal Steering wheels in CSL alcantara.
Also supplied with OE wind deflector.
I have owned the car for 3 years now and have used it mostly for road trips around Scotland and days out along the coast. It has never been out in the rain in all the time I have owned it.
IMO the new owner is going to get a rare but useable (verging on classic) car thats value is only going to go up!
Please no timewasters or telesales.
Any test drives will have to be me driving unless cleared funds are in my bank by bank transfer.
No more than two people for a single viewing please.
I welcome any relevant questions.
Thanks for looking. Hide description
