The winner from BaT had an unfortunate situation occur and did not complete the purchase. The M3 is still FOR SALE at $48K, which was the winning amount (discounting the $2400 in BaT fees that would have been paid). Any reasonable offer will be considered. See original BaT link for tons of photos, videos, and more details.
2003 BMW E46 M3
Carbon Black over black
6-speed Manual (swap)
Ohlins Road and Track
Eventuri carbon fiber intake
Includes OEM exhaust, intake, wheels
Full details and history since new:
I purchased the car a year ago at 17,800 miles and put on about 600 miles. I purchased it from a good friend who had it for a few months and drove it about 100 miles (we’re both habitual short term car traders, ha). He bought it from the second owner. The second owner purchased it in 2021 with 16k miles and had it 6-speed manual swapped and installed about $6k in excellent modifications such as mentioned above:
Ohlins Road and Track coilovers, Apex Arc-8 wheels with new Michelin 4S tires, Eventuri Carbon Fiber intake, and a Dinan exhaust with Supersprint mid pipe. The intake+exhaust combo sounds amazing, it’s a true zero rasp setup. The car comes with most of the original items like OEM intake, exhaust, wheels. Apparently they had a family situation that came up forcing them to sell unexpectedly to my friend.
The original owner had it in Florida for 17 years and the service report I received from BMW shows the entire history since new with mileage fully documented. Rod bearings were taken care of under original warranty.
Under my ownership I had the rearview mirror refreshed (common BMW mirror issue), replaced the scratched sunglasses lid/doors in the dash, and had the idle air control valve replaced by the local BMW dealer master mechanic. The car drives amazingly well, handles absolutely incredible with the Ohlins suspension, and the exterior and interior presents basically like new. If it was any other color than black, I’d probably keep it forever.
