      nthusiasts will debate for decades to come which M3 was the best. Any of you that know me will be aware that my roots date back to the revered E30 M3. I grew up with them and love homologation specials with competition pedigree. That said, one would argue that the E46 M3 will go down in the history books as the most all round, multi-tasking M3 of all time. Utter day to day usability blended with track day ability for the weekends.

 

The E46 M3 wore a Savile Row suit during the week with the ability to pound the race circuits of Europe at the weekends. At the heart of the M3 is the now legendary, award winning S54 engine. An in-line 6-cylinder, 24 valve, 3,246 CC, twin cam with double Vanos and managed by Siemens sophisticated engine management, which made it possible to achieve 343 bhp, 365 Nm of torque whilst returning over 30 mpg if cruising. This clever power plant is the key to these cars split personality and multi-tasking abilities.

Due to the extraordinary day to day usability of these M3s, it is now extremely hard to find low mile, well cared for examples. Most saw many winters of daily driving on our salted roads causing corrosion to take hold.   Many fell in to the wrong hands and lacked the proper maintenance that they deserved.  

 

Following our usual workshop inspection of this car, it was given the green light and we are delighted to be able to offer this exceptional example for sale.  With only 61,000 miles in the hands of just two owners and featuring a complete service history from new.  The second owner purchased the car in 2013 with 58,000 miles and has covered a mere 3,000 miles during his 9 years of ownership during which time the car has been permanently garaged.
