No car combines fun and practicality and relative affordability with quite the same panache as the E46 M3. It’ll be remembered as one of the best sporting cars BMW has ever produced. The BMW M3 is a high-performance version of the BMW 3 Series, developed by BMW’s in-house motorsport division, BMW M GmbH. Improvements over the regular 3 Series cars include more powerful and responsive engines, improved handling/suspension/braking systems, aerodynamic body enhancements, lightweight components, and interior/exterior accents with the tri-colour “M” (Motorsport) emblem.
The E46 M3, was first introduced in October 2000, with the new 3,246 cc S54 M-tuned engine. It was only available in coupe and convertible body forms. The engine had a redline of 8,000 rpm. As with most M engines, the S54 again had 6 independent throttle bodies and this time electronically operated throttles, (drive-by-wire throttle with no cable).
Maximum power was 338 bhp, and 0 – 62 mph takes just 5.5 seconds in the convertible and maximum torque is 296 lb/ft at 5,000 rpm. Evo magazine wrote, “That 3.2-litre 338bhp straight-six is wonderful, with an effortless reach, ever-ready vigour and a tight-lipped howl spangled with a zingy, metallic edge.”
Supplied new by BMW Glasgow in 2005, the all-important running-in service was carried out on 29/07/05 at 1362 miles. This facelifted car has been excellently maintained throughout its ownership, and boasts Full BMW Main Dealer service history.
