My Ride: 2003 M3
Exclamation Advice: 2000 bmw m3

I've found an M3 with alright mileage, competitively priced (for the NZ market) and a good service history.

It's also built in November 2000.


There are a few things I'd like your input on.

Firstly, the build sheet says it has a "low compression engine" - what does this mean? A local BMW enthusiast said it's probably a mistake on the build sheet. I'll ask the dealer to confirm whether it is low compression or not when I get pre-purchase check but what is the LC engine?

Secondly, I was looking at the UUC short shifter kits, (http://www.turnermotorsport.com/p-12...it-e46-m3.aspx)

And it says that it fits 2001-2006 M3. Will this not fit the 2000 year or is this a mistake?

Any other points of interest on the car?

It has spec which I like:

Carbonschwarz Metallic paint
Cinnamon Nappa leather seats
6 Speed manual
Rear sunblind
CSL splitters
Carbon fog light covers

I'll be updating all the lights to facelift, and giving the car a general freshen up if I get it but I'd appreciate your input!

I am in New Zealand!
