2003 E46 BMW M3

Six Speed Manual
(Originally an SMG car converted to six speed)
166500 miles
Silver exterior
Black Interior
Harmon Kardon Audio
Navigation
Sunroof
Xenon Headlights
Leather
Etc....


Over $9000 in mechanical, maintenance, and cosmetic reconditioning all completed within the last year by a certified BMW euro shop located in Columbia, SC.

This car was originally a factory SMG transmission car. SMG failures are common on these cars, can be difficult to diagnose, and expensive to repair. Having purchased the car with a faulty SMG pump system($4000 from BMW) we decided to convert the car over to a traditional 6 speed manual and eliminate any future SMG failures. The conversion option is very common choice in these situations.

The conversion began with removal of all SMG system parts. Followed by removal of the transmission bell housing which was shipped to a BMW performance shop, Performance Technic, in California. The bell housing was machined to match the factory 6 speed manual housing, returned, and fitted back to the factory transmission. The transmission was then reinstalled.

A factory 6 speed shifter, clutch, and associated mechanical components were installed. The final step in the process was to program the car DME(computer)to match the factory 6 six speed configuration. The car is now a fully functional manual 6 speed M3.

Below is a list of completed updates

-New Yokohama Advan Run Flat Tires < 1000 miles
-Factory M3 wheels all reconditioned...like new
-Resurfaced Xenon headlight lenses
-Replaced headlight seals
-Replaced rear tail light lenses
-New Center console and leather wrapped armrest
-New Factory M3 floor Mats front and rear
-New windshield wipers

MECHANICAL

-Car completely serviced to include: front end alignment, all fluids replaced, all filters replaced, all belts replaced.
-SMG to manual conversion
-Transmission bell housing conversion
-New plugs
-New ignition coils
-New thermostat
-New temperature sensor
-New stealing angle sensor
-Replaced Valve cover gaskets
-Valve adjustment tolerance verified correct
-New constant pressure valve on engine block
-Replaced coolant upper and lower radiator hoses
-New cam position sensor
-New AUC sensor
-New clutch
-New Fly Wheel
-New exhaust gaskets
-New rear differential pinion seal
-New rear subframe mounts
-New oil level sensor

Areas that could still be addressed:

Right passenger head airbag fault code
Headliner droop
Windshield wiper fluid reservoir
Front passenger seat back upholstery damage


This car looks great, runs great, and is a blast to drive. It still needs a few things and is not perfect, as it is indeed 14 years old. For an enthusiast who is looking for a car that they can drive and enjoy this would be a perfect option. The car needs nothing to be enjoyed. I believe this is a wonderful example of an iconic and arguably one of the best M3 examples BMW has ever produced.

Asking $12000 OBRO. All offers will be considered, but please be considerate with your offer. Happy to show the car to anyone with serious interest... Car located in the Irmo, SC area.
