Listing my 2002 BMW E46 M3 coupe with original 6-speed manual transmission. Topaz Blue Metallic on Dove Grey interior. I’m the second owner of this M3, I purchased this car in California and shipped it east, sight unseen in 2020. The car has lived in Palo Alto nearly its whole life. It has been garaged its entire life as well- with its original owner and here with me in PA/NJ. The car has never seen snow, salty roads, nor experienced any real winter driving. This is a completely rust-free California car with an accident-free Carfax report and a clean title in the seller’s name (my name). The car currently sits at 127080 mi. It has never been tracked, raced.

I’m selling the car because as I do not get to drive it much anymore. I’d rather have someone else own it and be able to drive it.

Aside from an upgraded head unit (Avin Avant 4 with wireless CarPlay) and Bavsound speaker system, this is a completely unmodified car. The original owner was a software engineer at Big Fruit Company among others in Silicon Valley. He was not much of a car enthusiast, he just drove the car and kept it very well-maintained for nearly 20 years. I have every service record for this car going back to its delivery in 2001, the car’s original window sticker, and all 4 original keys.

The paint is in great shape for a 22-year-old car, though the following imperfections are noted and pictured in full album:

-Front bumper resprayed & PPF installed, though has a scratch from curb
-Passenger door moulding has a scratch
-Minor scrape on the driver’s side of the rear bumper cover
-Wheels have some curb rash and some paint chipping but are in overall good shape.

The interior is in great shape as well. There are no cracks, rips, or tears in the leather, aside from slight cracking in the shoulder area of the driver’s seat. It is currently sitting on Bridgestone Potenza max performance summer tires.

This M3 was originally serviced at BMW Mountain View, and then at other Euro/BMW shops around the San Francisco Bay Area. On the east coast, it has been serviced by Rogue Engineering in NJ and Bechtel Bavarian in Philadelphia, PA. All recalls have been performed by BMW.

The subframe has not been reinforced, but is regularly inspected when the car is up on a lift. The car will also come with its original Business Class radio/CD changer.

Please, no trades and no low-ball offers, I’m not in any rush to sell. Pre-purchase inspections are welcome and recommended at the buyer’s expense.

On a personal note, this is a very sweet vehicle. I’m really looking for someone to care for it as much as I have during my ownership.

Carfax report & all service records are available upon request.

Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for looking!
