For sale is my 2003 e46 M3 6 speed manual in Carbon Black, with Black Interior. I purchased the car in 2015 as a nice low mileage (74k) stock car. I spent a couple years and tens of thousands of dollars tweaking it and making lots of small adjustments. In 2017 I had my first child and have driven a couple hundred miles a year since. My wife says thin the herd, and the car should really be driven, so off it goes.

The car is in good overall condition with 94k mi. Its a go-cart to drive with the tightened suspension and quicker acceleration from the 4.10 dif. There are some small blemishes inside and out, but overall its a pretty nice driver. I have all the documentation from my ownership, and a little from previous owners. It has had its recalls, regular oil changes, the subframe reinforced with welded steel plates, and had the Vanos updated. Feel free to call me for more info show contact info . I will keep updating this post as I remember additional work done and review my receipts. Asking $18k, ongoing list of upgrades below.
