Doug’s Take

The E90 BMW M3 is a fantastic sport sedan, touting the M3’s only-ever V8, classic BMW handling, and subtle yet aggressive styling. This particular M3 has been further enhanced with a VF Engineering supercharger kit to add even more power – and it also boasts some desirable features like 18-inch Style 219M wheels, a beautiful Palladium Silver interior, and a navigation system. The seller has also reportedly replaced the rod bearings recently, meaning a big-ticket maintenance item has already been taken care of for the next owner. Plus, this M3 has also been owned in warm-climate California and Texas since new, for added peace of mind.


THIS… is a 2009 BMW M3 Sedan, finished in Alpine White with a Palladium Silver interior.

  • The attached Carfax history report shows no mileage discrepancies in this M3’s past. It also shows that it’s been registered in California and Texas since new.
  • According to the build sheet provided in the gallery, factory equipment includes 18-inch Style 219M wheels, Electronic Damper Control (EDC), leather upholstery, heated and power-adjustable front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a navigation system, and more as detailed below.
  • Modifications reported by the seller include a VF Engineering VF650 supercharger kit, BPM tuning software, Fuel-It dual fuel pumps with a Hobb switch, race pipe, and an M3 GTS DCT tune. The full list of modifications can be seen below.
  • The fourth-generation M3 was introduced for the 2008 model year, offering a high-performance variant of the 3 Series sedan, coupe, and convertible. Known for its high-revving V8 engine and balanced handling, the E90 M3 is a favorite among BMW enthusiasts for its blend of everyday usability and track-ready performance.
  • Power comes from a 4.0-liter V8, rated at 414 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. Due to the modifications performed to this M3, it almost certainly produces more power, but a dyno sheet was not provided to confirm. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a 7-speed automatic transmission.
