My Ride: 2002 M3
2002 M3 Loaded With Goodies 6MT White M-Alcantara

An opportunity to buy another car I really want has led me to putting my car up for sale. I've had this car for about 3 years, before that another E46 M3 for 2 years, and I am getting an itch to start a new project. I'm not forced to sell, and if cannot get what I think the car is worth, then I'll hang on to it and wait a while until I can afford to have both cars.


Short list of key features
Volk LE37T 19" wheels
Supersprint V2 Stepped Headers and D/A Race tune
OEM 4.10 differential
Low Mileage Transmission and Clutch
KW Variant 3 suspension
Vorsteiner Everything, new paint
No moonroof option
M-Alcantara Interior
Tons of other stuff listed below

The car is high mileage. 108K miles. However, the motor runs strong, has never given me any signs of creeping issues, and actually consumes considerably less oil than the 30k miles e46 M3 I owned previous to this one (which I was told was normal). I think the big complaints with high mileage cars come from bad transmissions or clutches dying, and those have about 35k miles on them, both replaced at a BMW dealership (I have receipts). The car had an Inspection 2 done last summer, and I sent in an oil sample to Blackstone Laboratories and they said everything looked good. Suspension is also only about 30k miles old, with most components replaced including the control arm bushings and RTABs. The M-Alcantara interior is out of a low mileage 2005 ZCP, and looks immaculate.

Car has been a California car for most of its life, until I came to Pittsburgh, PA for grad school last year. Stored in the winter, I left the summer tires on there so I never considered driving it in the snow or when the roads were salted. This means no rust on the car. Car is still currently in Pittsburgh, PA.

Asking Price: $23.5K, willing to sell w/o wheels for $21.5K. I know kbb or nada is nowhere near this, but this car will only sell to someone who values what has been done to it.

There are a few in the second link of extra photos, but they were taking under low light conditions, so they are not the greatest. I'll try to get some better ones soon, although M-Alcantara is extremely hard to accurately photograph.
