Introduction

Here at Old Colonel Cars we are delighted to have this superb BMW E46 M3.

This low owner, a late 2003 example is in excellent condition throughout and has covered only 71,000 Miles

It benefits from an excellent service history.

The current owner traveled the country and looked at many examples that were no up to the required standard, until he found this one in 2017. Part of a lovely collection of modern classics, this example is now up for sale.

As soon as the current owner purchased the car, he took it to well renowned BMW Specialist, Darren Wood. He performed a full check over and compiled a small list of  mechanical work required to get up to top standard, which was done, no expense spared.

It drives and performs perfectly, engine / clutch / gearbox / suspension all performing as they should.

Sub frame checked and clear.

Titan Silver metallic with a Grey Nappa extended leather interior.

A lovely specification as you can see below, notable options are Glass sunroof, Harman Kardon stereo etc.
