A e46 m3 for around 15k? You will be getting a beat up one for that price. Dont forget a ppi in the car you are interested in.

I agree with chea.. I just got mine and paid more for better quality, but the ones I looked at for 15k range weren't in good condition at all. Definitely have the ppi done if you're going this route.

Also remember how much it will cost to maintain these cars to see if you can afford it. For 15k I would get a zhp or something along those lines.

Major things to look out for on a E46 M3

Subframe
Vanos -Exhaust Hub and Cam Bolts
Bushings - RTABS, Front Control Arms and FCAB, Diff bushings etc
Suspension
Power steering high pressure line
proper oil change records

There is more but these are the major ones
