My Ride: AWE46M
Socal | 2005 BMW M3 | AW/Black | 6MT | Non-Sunroof | Super Clean
The story with this car is actually an interesting one, I had previously owned two E28's and two E36's before I started looking for a new car.
My initial search started with the E30 M3 and a daily, I quickly learned I was not going to be making a quick purchase because of lack of availability.
I saw a lot of E46's for sale and noticed a clean example fits my budget, although at the tip top of it, and I decided to try my hands at a newer BMW.
I searched and searched and searched and almost even gave up looking for an E46 because it was so hard to find what I exactly wanted.
After about half a year of searching I came across this fine example located in Palm Springs, CA.
It was a one owner vehicle, owned by a retired tennis coach. He had the car mainly garaged and always maintained and taken care of.
He purchased the car brand new out right through BMW of Palm Springs as a European Delivery vehicle and decided to take a vacation after he retired.
He moved to Germany and took delivery of the car there as well as drove it there for a year before moving back home and bringing the car back.
He was a true enthusiast who optioned the car with no premium package which means the car has NO sunroof and manual seats!
I purchased this car July 4th weekend of 2011 and it has been my pride and joy ever since then.
A few months ago I finally found an E30 M3 and decided to take the leap, resulting in the choice to sell my E46.
Previous owner always kept it maintained by BMW of Palm Springs religiously.
I have yearly separated manilla folders with every single piece of paper document and maintenance receipt included to show and pass on to the new owner.
Skimming through the papers shows all inspections done once if not twice as well as the cooling system and much much more.
After I purchased the car I replaced the starter, guibo, csb, front control arm bushings as well as brakes front and rear, also a few additional OEM modifications.
The car is exceptionally clean and whoever has seen it in person can definitely vouch for it.
The PO was also truly in love with the car, he passed on the original window sticker as well as a matching coffee mug BMW had given as a gift upon original purchase, I will include these for the future owner along with the original owners manual and all keys.

I am sad to say the least giving up this car and putting it for sale, I wish I had a two car garage as well as the finances to afford keeping it, but I am not in a rush by any means.
This car is a well maintained and exceptionally taken care of example.
I apologize in advance for the crappy Iphone pictures I have included below, as I was taking pictures it started to get dark outside.
