2005 M3 Coupe

Up For Sale is My 2005 BMW M3, I am Asking 25kOBO,

The car is in Gilbert AZ I am willing to Deliver the car within reason (1000 Miles or so)


The car has 80k on the clock and is in EXCELLENT mechanical and cosmetic shape, and through preventative maintenance has never exhibited any issues.



I havent had the car too long and would truly love to keep it, I am however in a new financial situation that is no longer allowing me to keep an extra toy.

The previous owner used this as a grocery getter in California, it does have a door ding, as well as some scratches on the rear passenger fender from her attempting to leave a car port. (I will post pics tonight)



Since I have owned it I have done all of the maintenance that was suggested to me by my local BMW dealer. This Includes SERVICE TWO. on top of service two they recommended other service so I ended up replacing all the belts, flushing the brake system and doing a full brake service and replacing the fuel filter. Outside of their recommendations I also ended up Doing a full diff and Transmission service, I flushed the coolant system. When Doing the Valve Adjustment I also had a tech help me disassemble and check the vanos timing system. Tires are pilot sport two's with more than 80 percent left.



When I purchased the car it came with brand new oem struts and some tein springs, I figured I would install them and save for some nice coil overs, the suspension actually feels pretty nice nice for daily driving, it always feels planted never bouncy. (The tein springs were made to match the stock struts)



When I installed the suspension I went ahead and checked all the bushings out, the only ones that look even slightly worn are the rear trailing arm bushings, although I did not see the need to replace them at this time since they really don't look bad, the po must have replaced them at some point.



I installed agency power catless headers In the car after trying my luck with the eBay ones. after the instal of the headers, the car was professionally tuned by evolution MotorSports.

The car WILL come with stock springs and stock headers.



The interior options on the car are navigation, black napa leather, and brushed aluminum trim.



The interior of the car Is in great shape(8/10), the seats had been covered almost the cars entire life, and since the covers came off it has been maintained with BMW leather care every two weeks.



Please Call Text or Email me with Any question about the car, I will most likely be adding to this as i get questions or think of more stuff

My Name is Adam and my phone number is 480 two 7 Zero Nine Eight 4 Eight

Dont be afraid to make an offer, the worst i can say is no : )

Exactly what I was thinking... Didn't all of the E46 M3's roll off the assembly line with xenons?

If so.. this raises interesting questions.

You guys are right, every m3 comes with xenon stock. Either he replaced the headlights, or this is a fake.

Xenons

you know i never really thought about it, just did my own research and it seems like a phenomenon because some people had there xenons as standard and some have the halogen housings...

This car cam from the factory in 2005 WITH the halogen headlamps, ill see if i can take a pic today of the original paperwork.

also not sure why every other option was added to this car besides the xenons lol

I just really never liked the smg knobs, I had this one from an e30 track car I sold, its from a e36 m3 though

I just figured I would toss it on instead of trying to find something else.

I do still have the smg knob though
