E36 m3 to e46 m3?

Hi all first post on this site.
Seriously considering mixing it up. Past dozen years I Have had a manual e36 m3 4 door. I put only 500 miles on it last year. Most likely been holding onto it because it's Rare and mechanically needs nothing.

Looking at no option 2003 e46 m3 white with black cloth
Only known options h/k and xenon.
(No sunroof, no forged 19" wheels, no power seats, no nav,)
98k, no wrecks, 2 owner car, dealer maintained its entire life.

Price seems right

A barebones, well maintained M3 is something most here would lust over.

I'd say get a PPI done, and if it checks out, go for it!

No way of saying without PPI results. Know what you are buying and the associated maintenance costs.

PPI is being done. Bearing and vanos have been taken care of. The rear sub frame is good. No wrecks or repaints.

I like white with black. Second to LSB which seems like apremium.

Also cloth does not appear to be m cloth

Thanks guys of course

I love the chase for a car

Alpine white slick top would command a premium from
certain buyers, especially if 6mt. If the ppi checks out 15.5 is a steal.

Thanks guys. I had it checked out. Only needs control arm bushings and steering rack boots.

Wow Carfax shows 42 Dealer Maintenance visits since new.

Yes it is a manual. My daughter and I pick it up next Thursday. Arizona to Colorado.

Anyone know the best way to use Pandora on the stock stereo? No Nav. While using steering wheel controls

A way to get Bluetooth through A stock stereo is get one of those Bluetooth car speakers that clips on your visor and it will have you tune to A FM frequency and then you can listen to your cell-phone apps on your crappy BMW stereo.
