2003 e46 m3 smg
Jet black on black napa leather
California car its entire life (until me)
Clean Illinois title
3 keys and an auxiliary key
Car is in overall great shape
All lights and buttons function properly
No clunking or noises while driving
Car is fully loaded with power heated seats, rear bumper sensors, and rain sensors.
Must be an early 03 as it unfortunately does not have LCI taillights.
Heat and AC work great
No window regulator sounds or window scratching sounds (trust me this is unbelievably common and annoying on these cars)
Rod bearings done under recall in 04
Subframe and vanos have not been addressed
No rattles over 3k from vanos
SMG relay and pump in 2013
No oil leaks, however some residue on the power steering reservoir (typical)
Absolutely no rust, quite clean underneath
Car runs nice and cool, typically around 75-85°C
Flaws on the car currently, some of which may be addressed before sale:
The infamous rear window moldings need replacement
Slight sag on headliner from center
Sunroof clips misaligned or a button malfunction, haven’t dived into it yet but the motor certainly works
Worn out trunk taillights
M emblem missing on drivers side fender grill
Touch up paint on drivers fender which can be wet sanded and fixed
Diff bushings are worn
Button on drivers seat for bolster support is missing
Fade on roof liner
Needs hood strut
The plan for this car is to swap to 6 speed, however I am testing the waters as I would ideally like to get into an e39 m5. Open to all offers. Will entertain trades for e9x in similar condition or e39 m5 (plus cash depending on miles).
Asking $23500 obo
