Lot 142 - 2004 BMW M3 Convertible
|Odometer reading||99,807 miles|
|Result||Sold - £11,760|
The E46 BMW M3 was previewed at the German Motor Show in 1999 as a concept, although the actual car when manufactured bore a very close resemblance when it was introduced in October 2000. Only available as coupé or convertible the M3 was offered with a five-speed Getrag gearbox or a SMG drive logic transmission. The E46 M3 was full of electronic gadgetry, which included driver aids such as dynamic stability control, cornering brake control and a limited slip differential. With a reported top speed of 155mph and 0-60mph in 5.1 seconds, the M3 certainly lived up to its name and did not disappoint!
Originally registered on 25th June 2004 this BMW presents in good order throughout. The silver paintwork is virtually unmarked and the grey leather interior is also in good order. The black hood is new and has hardly been used. The engine started immediately when requested and sounded very much ‘on-song’, clearly this E46 has been very well cared for. Fitted with the desirable manual gearbox, this M3 convertible is a great car to drive. Supplied with a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until 23rd March 2022 and offered without reserve, this high specification BMW could well be one for the future.
