Annual mileage only 1166 kilometers
To be fair, it must be made clear that the M3 E46 sold is from the Year of construction 2004 for a copy first hand with just 19,814 kilometers (12,312 miles) acts, which is probably very difficult to find in this form nowadays. Less than 20,000 kilometers in 17 years, which corresponds to an annual mileage of just 1166 kilometers – the M3 has stood more than it has been driven. In addition, with the exception of the black kidneys, the E46 is in the untouched original condition located and the one you are looking for Six-speed manual transmission instead of the often criticized SMG II transmission. The special equipment including Premium Package (sunroof, leather interior and electrically adjustable front seats), xenon, radio business CD, Harman Kardon sound system and 19-inch M double-spoke rims (BMW Styling 67) leave nothing to be desired.
Back to the special specimen from the USA. the Exterior color “Imo Red II” is rather rare in the M3 E46, but suits the coupe very well. On the detailed pictures it can be seen that the M3 is in a exceptionally well-kept condition located. The only recognizable blemish are minor scratches from putting it on on the underside of the apron. The black leather interior in particular is in mint condition – further proof that the M3, which was delivered by BMW San Francisco in 2004, was apparently always treated with care. So shortly after buying one protective film applied, which has protected the paint from stone chips or minor scratches, but could certainly be renewed after almost 17 years. Also, the first and only owner doesn’t just have everyone original documents kept, but also the M3 a service every year donated.
The M3 is not accident free
Even a BMW M3 E46 that has been rocked down already costs 20,000 euros
Finally, a quick price comparison. In Germany it costs itself imported M3 E46 with well over 200,000 kilometers on the clock and the less coveted SMG II gearbox did around 20,000 euros. Manual coupés are rare and can hardly be found for less than 35,000 euros. Top maintained German cars with verifiable history can sometimes 50,000 euros and more cost. But that’s nothing compared to the USA, where legendary M models recently experienced a real hype.
