MILEAGE: 152,6xx miles(yes, it was a highway mile-eater, close to 100 miles a day for me)
Every major service required was performed during the last year (I was planning on keeping the car long-term), regular fluid changes (have very good oil reports from Blackstone Labs, last one just a week ago at 152K miles), dealer/Carfax history and owner reports. This used to be a BMW CPO (Certified Pre-Owned) car and have been under BMW warranty till 100K miles and serviced at BMW dealership with no expense spared. Recent airbag recall is also completed for both driver and passenger side airbags.
Never in any accident, no paintwork ever on any panel (except front bumper, done by me to get rid of chips/scrapes) - all original factory paint. Clean Carfax and Autocheck reports when I purchased the car (on January 2016). Good history and lots of maintenance records (see below). All maintenance records since I owned the car. Very well cared for. Bearings recall done under warranty by BMW at around 30K miles. I have invested a sizeable sum of money when I got the car, including changing all fluids, belts, filters, doing Inspection 2 – including S54 valve adjustments and VANOS check. Through cleaning and detailing at purchase, including replacement of many interior and exterior parts for cosmetic reasons. Very good condition for the miles/age. This is one Beautiful car.

You are looking to purchase one great vehicle. I'm a 4th owner of this beautiful BMW, but owners 2 and 3 were father and son in the same family. This vehicle is in very good shape. It has been owned for most of its life by a dentist who drove it 10 miles to work and back. It was a Certified Pre-Owned car purchased from a BMW dealer, and as such serviced exclusively at BMW until CPO expired.
Carbon Black is one of the best colors BMW ever came up with. It is not quite black – it is dark blue, almost like metallic ink color. It does look black if not under direct light. Together with black Shadowline trim and 19" CSL-Style ///M3 Competition package wheels, this is one strikingly beautiful coupe.
There are few flaws on the exterior of the car, as expected from a vehicle that has been driven.There is a fair amount of paint chips on the hood/front portion of the fenders, few small chips on the windshield (nothing serious, no cracks), few tiny marks and scratches - normal wear from driving, really. I wouldn't even mention that, but I want full disclosure.Front bumper has been resprayed (while I owned the car) not due to any accident, but to get rid of the chips and scrapes, but it has been a year since, so it has acquired some new ones, but still looks very presentable overall. I have also invested a good amount of money into PDR, so every single dent on the car was taken out - it is completely dent free!
Overall, body & paint is in great shape, and it has been hand washed, clayed, polished and waxed regularly. I have done full Stage I paint correction few months ago and paint looks amazing and shines beautifully. The car has never been in any collision of any kind, and all panels have its original factory paint and matching VIN numbers on them. I hope pictures show that. 9/10 easily.
3.2 Liter, 333 bhp Inline-6 engine with is one of the best BMW engines ever made. Many awards. Silky smooth acceleration. Gobs of power.I have replaced a bunch of small items under the hood and around the car. Emblems, logos, worn rubber gaskets and seals, faded trim, etc. Even under the hood, it looks clean and great! Obviously, no mechanical problems of any kind. Mechanically the car is absolutely sound with no issues whatsoever.
This car is also loaded:Ventilated brake disks with Dynamic Brake Control and ABSDynamic Stability Control and Traction Control systems, Cruise control,Front and side airbags, front head protection system (HPS)Bi-Xenon Headlights with height control (headlights adjust to different road levels)Rain Sensing Wipers (turn on automatically when they sense the rain on windshield), etcAll the usual goodies that come with modern BMW cars.
NAV Screen has been replaced with a brand new Alpine unit due to dreaded missing pixels and it is absolutely perfect now - not a single pixel is missing, all nice, clean and bright. Anti-glare coating is also intact on the screen. Knobs are in good shape. I'm OCD, I know.
There are couple of other points I'd like to mention. Wheels do not have any curb rash, but they are not perfect. There are couple of ever-so-slight dings on two of the rims. They are straight and true. All tires have been replaced about literally 200 miles ago, and are brand new all around (see pictures). I have also done a 4-wheel alignment after I changed the tires. Goes straight and smooth. Brakes are good, pads have plenty of life.

Interior is immaculate, for the age/miles. And don't get me wrong, there IS wear, but this is a 13-year old vehicle with 150K+ miles. It is immaculate, considering.It has not been that way when I got the car though. I spent quite a few dollars and replaced many things in the interior for it to look that way. All soft-touch panels were replaced with new, original BMW pieces. New snifter knob, new armrest, new steering wheel trim, new floormats, central console, many others.
This vehicle is equipped with 12-way adjustable power sports seats, upholstered in beautiful, supple Cinnamon Nappa leather. The leather condition is good. There are some wear on the drivers' seat, mostly on seat cushion and bolsters, more on the entry bolster, but some on the inside too. There are couple of cracks in the leather that I was not able to fix with lots and lots of Leatherique. But they are very character cracks :) Gives the car that patina... Rest of the leather is mostly good, some very minimal wear. I would give leather a strong 8/10 rating.
In my opinion, this is one of the best BMW leather color since Caramel - it suits the car extremely well. This color combination of Cinnamon and Carbon Black is extremely beautiful and very sought after. Gunmetal trim gives it a very classy look without being over the top.
This vehicle is very clean inside and out. Never smoked in, never had any food or drinks (except bottled water) inside.No weird smells, never had anything nasty (vomit, etc) happen in it. Headliner is clean, moonroof works perfect.
All electronics, devices, switches, knobs, buttons, instruments and gauges work as they should. There are no missing or broken buttons or levers.There is some wear, particularly around window regulators and door handles, few scratches around ignition lock, but nothing more than regular wear and tear.
Steering wheel shows some wear, but its not terribly bad - leather is not worn, just starting to gloss-up a bit on the top.Overall, interior is in VERY GOOD shape. Please judge by yourself - plenty of pictures provided. 9/10 for sure.
Trunk is very clean as well - no stains or wear.Full original toolkit included, as well as air compressor with goo-can (M-Mobility kit), tow hooks, etc.
I have two keys plus valet plastic key, but one of the keys is uncut (don't ask me why, previous owner gave it to me like that). All paperwork, manuals, and all accessories that came with the car. I even have original purchase contract, but sadly, no sticker!
In addition, I have a lot of service documentation and service history on the car since from previous owned and myself. Since this was a CPO car, a lot of records available fromany BMW dealership.
This is one VERY nice, well documented, turn-key car.You owe it to yourself to take a look at it in person if you are looking to buy an E46 M3 Coupe.The car has no mechanical issues and is ready to drive anywhere.No VANOS issues, no subframe issues, no SMG issues, no rod bearings issues (see Blackstone report below).
The car has some miles on it, but most are highway, and the condition of the car is better than most with half the miles.This is a well-maintained, very well cared-for, and documented car.
One more thing to note for potential buyers:I have sold 7 personal cars over the last 8 years, and I have always sold them to the first person who looked at the car in person.I take really good care of my cars.Free and clear TX title in hand.

Now for the best part - the price. This was an $60K car when it was new.I think the price I'm listing it for is fair for the condition - but feel free to make an offer after you look at the car, or feel thatit is worth less than that - I'm a reasonable person, and after all, I do want to sell it. I do not have to sell it, however, and I'm relatively firm on the price.You can buy a new Honda Civic, or this - for about the same price.
