      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 when required.

E

Another debate that continues,  is which E46 M3 to own. Well, they are all great and all do slightly different things.  The people driving a manual version will tell you the SMG took away that analogue driving experience and that  a gear-lever and clutch pedal is the only pure way to enjoy an E46 M3. The other camp,  who own SMG gearbox M3s,  will argue just as virulently and passionately about the pro's of SMG.  Trust me, I have driven and owned more E46 M3s than most and the debate works both ways. The SMG soon becomes second nature and the F1 style of changing gear will soon change your driving habits and create a new bond with the now normal generation of manual gearbox.

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.

Please enquire with Barney for further information on this superb example. 

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 49,000 miles in the hands of  just just three previous owners and featuring a 100% complete BMW service history from new.  The superb document file features every single invoice from only 6000 miles and every MOT, the first being in 2006 with only 5,413 miles. All the correct and original manuals, spare keys, fully stamped service book, tools are still present and correct.
