Lot 214 - 2003 BMW M3 Convertible
|Odometer reading||89,951 miles|
|Estimate||£14,000 - £18,000|
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 six-speed Getrag gearbox or the optional SMG II gearbox. 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 an electronically limited top speed of 155mph and 0-60mph in 5.1 seconds, the M3 certainly lived up to its name and did not disappoint!
This very nice example is presented in Titanium silver with black leather interior and black electrically operated hood. Its throaty 3.2 litre engine is mated to a six speed SMG II gearbox, which provides an exciting drive and added comfort around town. The interior is in good condition and with the white dial instrumentation and snug driving position, makes this M3 feel much younger than its 20 years. The car comes with a MoT test certificate which expires in July 2024 and has just been fitted with a new SMG pump.
