Tag: E46 M3

2002 BMW M3 Coupe

There has been an increasing amount of focus on the E46 CSL and just what a special car it was. The bad news is that if you really wanted one, they were expensive a few years ago and have not gotten any cheaper. The good news is that most of the CSL stuff can be procured and you can make your own replica; though, properly done, they’re not much cheaper.

Today’s car is a bit less dear than the one above, though it also did not start life as a Competition Package example, nor was it as thoroughly done. Still, it looks pretty convincing at first glance – let’s take a look.

2002 BMW M3 Convertible

If you were hoping to jump into the E46 M3 world…well, now’s not a super great time to do so. Top examples are fetching over $90,000, and even just “really nice” ones are in the $40-$50k range suddenly. If you want to have the M3 experience for less money; you need to narrow your focus to include one of two things – the much-hated and broadly misunderstood SMG, or a convertible.

Today’s car is obviously the latter of the two, but it’s got a manual gearbox. The fun doesn’t end there, as it’s one of my favorite color combinations – Oxford Green Metallic over Cinnamon leather upholstery. Someone even threw a set of the super-cool 19″ Fuchs-made Style 67s on it, and boy does it look good. Does it break the bank?

2002 BMW M3 Coupe

This M3 sold for best offer under $37,900 on 11/22/2021.

A Phoenix Yellow M3 coupe? Damn straight I can’t look away. Back in May I looked at the most recent one after a string of a few others:

PYM cars continue to hit big numbers when they come up for sale, with a 44k mile 2001 6-speed coupe recently trading for $55,000 – close to its original sticker price. Today’s car has over double the mileage, but it’s also got a bit of a treat inside:

2001 BMW M3 Coupe

When I was looking for an E46 M3 back in 2014, it wasn’t particularly hard to find one. However, if you wanted one of the launch colors of the M3 – Phoenix Yellow Metallic, which I wanted, or Laguna Seca Blue – pickings were much more slim. We’ve recently looked at a string of PYM cars, so I thought it was worth checking out a nice blue example. Like PYM, finding a stock, lower-mile one in good condition is now less difficult thanks to specialty sites like Bring a Trailer, but it’s not as if they roll by every minute now that they’re 20 years old. And when they do, hang on…pricing is usually quite high. Case in point – a 34,000 mile 2004 example sold late last year for $53,333.

Well, today’s car is an early model – a 2001 – which in theory is a little less desirable than the post-LCI cars. But it’s stock, it’s in great shape, it’s a manual, and it’s got less than half the mileage of the example I just linked. The price? Well, let’s just say put the coffee down.

2004 BMW M3 Coupe

Update: This car sold for an impressive $48,500 on May 30, 2021.

Okay, I know it hasn’t been very long since I took a look at a few M3 coupes in Phoenix Yellow Metallic:

Double Take: 2004 BMW M3 Coupes

But today I had to come back with another. Late PYM coupes are a rare thing, and this one is spec’d in a pretty interesting configuration. Unlike a majority of the PYM cars that were more or less fully loaded, this one has no sunroof, gray leather upholstery, no Park Distance Control, and manual seats. Unlike the last pair it’s a manual, and it has under 60,000 miles. You can guess what all of these factors add up to in today’s market…
