Description from Bring a Trailer:

This 2003 BMW M3 coupe spent time in California and North Carolina prior to the selling dealer’s acquisition in May 2023, and it now has 33k miles. It is finished in Steel Grey Metallic over black Nappa leather upholstery and is powered by a 3.2-liter inline-six linked with a six-speed manual transmission. Features include the Premium and Cold Weather Packages as well as a limited-slip differential, Style 67 19″ M double-spoke wheels, a power-operated glass sunroof, xenon headlights, Park Distance Control, heated power-adjustable front sport seats, automatic climate control, navigation, and a Harman Kardon sound system. Work performed in April 2023 included a brake fluid flush in addition to the replacement of the trailing arm bushings, differential mounts, differential bushings, fuel pump seal, and pinion seals. This E46 M3 is now offered in Connecticut by the selling dealer with manufacturer’s literature, two keys, a BMW-branded flashlight, a tool set, a clean Carfax report, and a clean California title.

The car is finished in Steel Grey Metallic (400) and is fitted with Shadowline trim as well as xenon headlights with retractable washers, fog lights, LED tail lights, a power-operated glass sunroof, rain-sensing windshield wipers, Park Distance Control, a trunk lid spoiler, and quad exhaust outlets. The front bumper was repainted according to the selling dealer, and photos of paint meter readings are provided in the gallery.

Style 67 19″ M double-spoke wheels are mounted with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires measuring 225/40 up front and 255/35 at the rear. The car was factory equipped with Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), and braking is provided by four-wheel ventilated discs. The trailing arm bushings were replaced in April 2023, at which time a brake fluid flush was performed.

The heated power-adjustable front sport seats and the door-panel inserts are upholstered in black Nappa leather, and the cabin features Brushed Aluminum Shadow trim accents. Interior amenities include automatic climate control, cruise control, navigation, and a Harman Kardon sound system.

The leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel features M tri-color stitching and frames a 185-mph speedometer and a tachometer with a variable redline along with gauges for coolant temperature, oil temperature, and fuel level. The digital odometer indicates 33k miles.

The 3.2-liter S54 inline-six sends power to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. The selling dealer states that the rod bearings were replaced under recall in the early 2000s and that the battery was replaced in March 2022. Work carried out in April 2023 included the replacement of the fuel pump seal, differential mounts, differential bushings, and pinion seals.
