The BMW E46 M3 was first introduced in October 2000 and appeared worldwide with the new 3.2 litre S54 M-tuned engine. At the time of the car's introduction, this Euro spec engine had the highest specific output naturally aspirated of any engine ever made by BMW (except in the McLaren F1), producing 338hp. It was only available in coupé and convertible bodies as the saloon version had been dropped. The E46 M3 was offered with a standard 6-speed Getrag gearbox with an electro-hydraulically actuated clutch (no clutch pedal), but optionally came with an SMG drivelogic gearbox (also known as the SMG II). Shifts are made via the SMG gear knob or the steering wheel mounted paddle shifters. The engine had a redline of 8,000 rpm.
Originally registered on 23rd June 2001 this BMW M3 is finished in silver and has a blue roof. Having covered 117,000 miles from new, she was fitted with a new engine at 97,000 miles. We are advised Y707KUD drives exceedingly well and with a six-speed manual gearbox, this M3 convertible offers style, performance and reliability all in one package. Supplied with a V5 registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 6th April 2016, this BMW offers outstanding value for money.
