E46 M3 For Sale HUGE Spec!

Post by Prince » 14 Jun 2018, 13:23

Hello and welcome to my for sale advert for my M3. It has been a dream of mine to own a white E46 M3 for many years and nearly 4 years ago I purchased the perfect base car for this project. I have lovingly modified and owned this car since then. It has wanted for nothing, even being stored during winter. My only reason for sale is to move onto another dream car.

This car has a huge spec, which I will list below.

Exterior:

- Full respray in Alpine White 3. This white is from an E90/1/2/3 and is a much nicer white than the version originally found on E46s. This was completed by Cosmetic Autocare in May 2016.
- Brand new front wings at time of respray.
- Carbon fibre front kidney grills.
- Carbon fibre side grills with custom badges.
- Carbon fibre corner splitters.
- Carbon fibre rear diffuser.
- Genuine CSL bootlid, including all fittings, LED number plate lights and the carpet that fits underneath it.
- LED reverse lights.
- Brand new genuine headlight lenses.
- Brand new genuine indicators.
- Brand new genuine side repeaters.
- Brand new genuine newer version (slatted instead of plain) fog lights.

Interior:

- Storm Motorwerks titanium, weighted gear knob.
- Storm Motorwerks titanium hand brake handle.
- Storm Motorwerks titanium Sat Nav dials.
- All important cup holders.
- Black leather.

Performance:

- ST XTA coilovers. These are basically re-branded KW v2s including fully adjustable top mounts. KW own ST and it shows with the quality of these coilovers. Easily better than similarly priced HSD and BC.
- Rear Powerflex top mounts. Perfect addition with the coilovers above and include the all important Z3 reinforcement plates.
- Subframe has been completely reinforced and refurbished using the correct plates. Completely under sealed and painted. This was completed by DW Performance who are very well known as a Porsche and performance specialist. Whilst there I had various parts refurbished and powder coated. This was all completed over last winter.
- Powerflex rear trailing arm bushes.
- Rear Powerflex subframe bushes.
- Rear Powerflex diff bushes.
- Rear camber arms.
- All other bushes replaced with Lemforder (OE) parts at the back.
- PS Designs titanium stud conversion.
- 4.1 diff conversion. This makes the car much more lively and accelerate much quicker. There is loads of information about this on M3 Cutters and it is one the best modifications to do. This was completed by Deutsch Tech.
- K Sport front big brake kit. 356mm discs, 8 pot calipers and Mintex Racing pads. These are the newer monoblock calipers. These have been finished in orange and look absolutely immense! Used by many M3 Cutters members on their track cars.
- K Sport rear big brake kit. 330mm discs, 4 pot calipers and Mintex Racing pads. These was also fitted with brand new hand brake shoes, fitting kit and backing plates. Occasionally these do squeak once up to full temperature.
- Custom stainless steel cat back exhaust. Looks very similar to Milltek and Cobra systems.
- K&N panel filter.
- Brand new Exide battery fitted during ownership.

I’ll be completely honest there are a couple of things this car could have to really put the cherry on top. Usual drivers seat bolster wear, the steering wheel could be re-trimmed (was planning to get Royal Steering wheels to do this over the summer) and the parking sensors don’t work (never bothered me as I can park!).

Please note at the specified price the Work Emotion CR 2P wheels fitted do not come fitted as I want these for my next project. If you do want them then I price the wheels (fitted with almost new Michelin Super Sport tyres) at £3000. I am willing to do a deal for both car and wheels though. If not, the car will come on genuine 18 inch staggered wheels freshly refurbished in bronze.

I am in no rush to sell the car and still very much enjoy driving it. I have just come back from Bimmerfest in Holland and the car was absolutely faultless! I would quite happy to fit Recaro Sportster CSS and supercharge it if I were to keep it. The car will not come on the plate shown. It will put back on EY53UOR.

No warranty is implied or given. No test pilots. I am more than happy to demo the car to anyone and I am available during week day evenings and most weekends. I have loads of pictures and a folder full of invoices. Cash on collection.

Please contact me via pm or on my mobile 07745269953.

Thanks for viewing!

Please see eBay advert for pictures and I have plenty more I can WhatsApp and I'm happy to do a walk round video as well.
