2001 BMW M3 with 10,000 Miles

If yesterday’s S54 swapped 328Ci just wasn’t enough M3 to satisfy your need, today might just help you satiate that need. The E46 M3 is a great car in just about every way – it lacks some of the space and usability of its S4 competitors but it certainly makes up for it in great looks and performance. A friend of mine several years ago sold his older E28 535is that he tracked and 84 911 cabriolet and bought an E46 M3 convertible with hardtop. Initially, I was a bit surprised, but his logic was sound – the E46 was a better convertible capable of carrying (in a pinch, anyway) 4 people, and it was quicker in every situation than his track-biased E28. Plus, complimenting the good looks of the E46 was the color my friend opted for – Laguna Seca Blue, certainly one of the most striking colors on an M car in recent memory. Today’s coupe doesn’t enjoy the same open-air fun of my friend’s car, but what it does have is very few miles:

This car is pretty incredible; if you want a basically new E46, look no further. It does appear that there’s a bit of wear on the driver’s bolster but otherwise the car looks to be in fantastic shape. I’m not a fan of the stock M3 18″ wheels but that’s an easy fix; as with the Dakar Yellow example I’d opt for CSL or the Euro-market 19″ wheel options – either is readily available. Outside of that, if you keep the miles in check this car is almost certain to be a collector item. The seller is obviously aware of that, pricing the car quite high at $37,000. Of course, that price is only around half what a top optioned new M4 will set you back – and if given the option, I think I’d rather have the E46, thank you very much!

  1. well Smurf blue has become a “cult color”…I remember when the E46 first came out every dealer was given an LSB M3 as a demo car….
    the only issue and it really may not become one is the motor….the 01’s had that nasty habit of imploding….at first they tried to blame the owners…..but that is neither here nor there….the SMG I was the worst part of these…and this is thankfully a manual….
    lots of $$$$ though

    Which begs the question…..why the low miles?

  3. Yesterday’s 10K mile car prompted me to look back at this 10K mile car and I saw the comment about the early motors blowing. The issue was that the BMW press office wanted to advertise that the motor was an 8Krpm screamer but the engineers said that it was a 7.75Krpm motor. 8K read better as a headline so they in a very un-BMW way went with the PR team. Wasn’t a real issue for the manual cars becasue the power is on the way down around 7.5K so you feel it and shift, but the early SMG cars ran up to 8K on a regular basis and they paid the price. BMW eventually went on to lower the shift points via an PROM update that was handled while your car was in service and the exploding motors went away.
