First introduced in October 2000 the E46 M3 featured an all new 3.2L M-tuned engine. The engine had the highest specific naturally aspirated output ever made by BMW at the time producing 343bhp. Praised by press, the S54 engine redlines at a high 8000 rpm and breaths its oxygen through 6 independent throttle bodies electronically operated resulting in immediate responsive from the high revving power unit.

Available as a coupe or convertible the E46 was offered with a 6 speed manual Getrag gearbox or an optional SMG drivelogic gearbox (a standard 6 speed gearbox with an electro hydraulically actuated clutch pedal).

Finished in a striking, rare shade of Steel Grey Metallic this stunning M3 looks spectacular. The dark grey colour suits the M3 lines perfectly with chrome finished grilles and details popping against the smooth, glossy and well cared for paintwork.


The interior matches the exterior condition and presents with no major marks to be found; the half leather and M texture interior makes for a fantastic and special homage to the past classic BMWs that were often produced with Motorsport inspired textured inserts.

The dash and door cards are in excellent condition and the steering wheel retains its texture as you’d expect, with the M sport stitching perfectly clean and proudly displaying its Motorsport heritage.

The carpets are like new and protected with the original BMW mats, The boot area is pristine with no marks on the carpet or scratches where larger items have been loaded.


The straight 6 S54 motorsport engine is a technical masterpiece with exceptional performance and a buzz saw engine note, all whilst delivering respectable economy. The car drives incredibly well and remains tight and in keeping with its low mileage.

The SMG II gearbox offers considerations for both cruising and more spirited driving and operates exactly as it should with no clutch slur or hesitation.


This E46 was supplied new with the 18 inch alloys, correctly finished in dark anthracite and wrapped in a set of nearly Michelin tyres with plenty of tread remaining. 19 inch wheels are available on request should the new owner wish to upgrade however the car drives extremely well on the factory fitted 18s

Brakes are strong with plenty of material remaining on both disc and pads all round.


This M3 was first registered in September of 2002 and supplied new to Japan. It has been serviced no fewer than 12 times during its minimal mileage.

Sourced and imported by us it is now UK registered with all duty and taxes paid. It received a full inspection and clean bill of health by our resident BMW trained senior technician as well as an oil and brake fluid change in preparation for the new owner to enjoy with no further costs to incur.

The car drives incredibly well, the chassis tight, gear changes fluid and the engine silky smooth. No doubt one of the best, now classic, E46 M3 Coupes on the market.

The full document pack is also supplied with all the manuals and owners guides as well as the spare key.
