2002 BMW E46 M3 Convertible - MANUAL

2002 BMW E46 M3 Convertible

72k miles

6 Speed Manual

Clean Carfax and Autocheck. Title in hand.

Spent the better part of it’s life in FL.Very nice condition inside and out. Interior is free of any rips, tears or stains. Very little bolster wear on the drivers seat. All electronic adjustments on the both seats work perfectly. Center console around heater and DSC controls and cigarette lighter cover are new and not scratched up like so many of them. ZHP weighted shifter. All buttons and functions work as intended. All gauges with exception of the coolant temperature gauge function as intended. I follow the oil temp as far waiting for the car to “warm up” anyway, oil temp gauge works great. Factory radio and CD player work fine. AC blows cold. New factory BMW M3 plush floor mats front and rear as well as BMW all weather mats.

Starts, runs and shifts beautifully. New battery installed a few months ago. The engine is extremely strong feeling and really puts down the power. Completely stock, stock exhaust and intake, all cats in place. Clutch works nice, no slippage or unusual travel. VANOS functions as intended. There are NO codes or lights on dash. Has new plugs and coils. Oil changed 300 miles ago with the recommended special Castrol sythetic. Michelin Pilot Supersports all around, all show little wear.

Wheels have some minor scrapes around the edge of the rims, but nothing unsightly. I like the factory finish and was hesitant to get them refinished. Exterior paint is consistent with the age of the vehicle, probably a little better than that. There are some touch ups and light scratches here and there, but overall the car looks very good in person and shines up well.

Convertible top is in beautiful condition, literally looks new. Top goes up and down perfectly, little mechanism covers that seem to always be missing or broken are both intact and work as intended. Top functions with the key in the drivers door as well as the buttons on the dash. Auto windows work when the top goes down, as well as the “all up/down” button.

Trunk is clean. No subframe cracks visible from above or below the vehicle. Air pump, tow hook and tools are all still in place.

Comes with all keys, including valet key. All books and manuals including the leather key cover, audio cd and what I believe is a VHS tape still in the plastic wrapper.

Can absolutely assist with shipping,

Asking $15,500. Would consider trades.
