ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
A ferocious and true performance legend. Designed solely with pure driving exhilaration in mind, to experience the E46 M3 is an unforgettable drive and truly addictive. The 6 cylinder in-line powerplant is nothing short of a genius in engineering and under bonnet splendour is guaranteed as the area is spotlessly clean, exactly as it left the production line. All correct stickers and identification plates remain fixed. An electronically limited top speed of 155mph and 0-62 time of just 5.2 seconds is quoted. The 6-speed manual gearbox is precise with a short throw.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Standard BMW light-alloy double spoke wheels have been refurbished and Continental Contisport Contact tyres measuring 225/45 ZR18 and 255/40 ZR18 front and rear respectively have excellent tread remaining and are the correct type made specifically for the car with the M3 logo on the side. The high performance braking system featuring compound discs brakes safely controls the staggering power and is everything you would expect of this ultimate driving machine.
Built in August 2003 and supplied new by Main Dealer Jacksons BMW of Jersey on the 29th September 2003, this example is the facelift model. A print out reveals a purchase price of £42,775 excluding on the road charges. A comprehensive service history highlights 10 visits to the supplying dealer followed by Independent BMW Specialist Ruellan`s Garage.
