|Odometer reading||90,583 miles|

The fourth generation BMW M3 was announced on the 2007 Geneva Motor Show. It was originally set to be called M4 along with 3 Series coupés and convertibles that were to become the 4 Series but, due to the interest in retaining the M3 line as well as the plan for a separate 4 series line, this change was scrapped. Like the previous M3 generations that introduced a new engine, the fourth generation M3 did the same: the BMW S65 V8 engine producing 414bhp. The E92 M3 coupé inherited a carbon-fibre roof similar to the one used on the E46 CSL. For 2011, the E92 M3 received a model refresh, changes included minor interior trim pieces and LED rear taillights. The new M3 is again available as a four-door saloon, based on the E90 3 Series saloon, but unlike the regular saloons, the M3 version shares the coupé's wide and sculpted front end, including headlights. Although the front-end design of the saloon matches the specific look and high-performance character of the coupé, the side-sills and rear diffuser are tailored for the saloon.
This superb, ex Sytner Used BMW example is presented in silver with black leather interior. This lovely convertible M3 comes with air conditioning, electric heated memory front seats, CD player and satellite navigation. It has the desirable DCT Automatic seven speed gearbox with paddle shift and is fitted with a Scorpion rear exhaust box and the car body has had a ceramic coating applied. The present owner has just had the car serviced on 24th/25th February, in accordance to the service book. The car also comes with a new MoT test certificate and a full BMW service history up to and including 2018 and thereafter specialists according to the service indicator. Also, the vendor informs us that it comes with a Motoreasy Plan C (2 year) warranty which is valid until August 1st this year and has not been used to date! This is one of the best examples of this model we have seen and “wants for nothing” as they say!
