My Ride: 2004.5 6-speed M3
Help please! Urgent!

Hi All,

In the process of purchasing a 2004 E46 M3 6-speed manual and just had the vehicle inspected by a BMW dealership (I am in a different state).

The inspection came back relatively clean bar the fact that they (the dealership) recomend replacing the clutch.

The car has 50,000KM (30,000 Miles).

I spoke with the guy who did the inspection and he did not say it was slipping, however he said it makes a bit of a noise when engaging/dis-engaging, however the car slots into all gears smoothly.

Could this just be an issue surrounding how it has been driven (i.e. driven hard or the seller has no idea how to drive)?

Or is this just the dealer recommending replacing it due to them being the dealer as such?

Any help appreciated as always

Please disregard.

Idiot at the dealership who wrote the report incorrectly put it on my report!


All is good.
