GCFSB Exclusive: 2002 BMW M3

driversside

On a daily basis the staff at GCFSB scours online ads looking for rare, obscure and cool German cars for sale. While the Internet is a great resource for searching the globe for these rides, more often than not the real gems can’t be found online; rather, they come about by networking and word of mouth. Enter this beautiful E46 M3.

Here in New England, there is a great network of German car enthusiasts like the seller of this beauty. Bought a few years ago as a toy, this impecably maintained Steel Grey over red leather E46 M3 is too great a car not to feature here.

Enthusiast owned, meticulously maintained and with only 46K miles on the clock, this is the sort of car that would make a great weekend warrior for the M3 fan. With most E46s turning 100K miles and either abused or modified, this tastefully modified example would be a great addition to the right stable. While the asking price it at the top of the market, clean E46 M3s are becoming harder to find, so examples like this should command a premium price. So why would someone sell off such a beautiful car you may ask? The story of this M3 is all too common, with the seller’s sights have shifted to other things…in this case from München to Stuttgart. Something has to go…

  1. Great color combination. The patina on those red seats will look excellent as they age. Although the modifications are tasteful, I think the car would be more valuable/desirable if closer to stock. That being said, glad to see one properly maintained and not abused.

    I would have a hard time choosing between this M3 and the 911SC listed a few posts earlier if I were in the market in this price range.

  2. Nice color combo +good mileage + 6MT instead of the dreaded SMG = winner. The price is a little on the high side but this is definitely a future classic.
