Unfortunately, I have a baby on the way and I need to let go of one of my toys. Its a 2002 E46 M3 SMG.
Its the most popular and valuable color scheme/Package! Alpine White with Imola red interior, slick top (no sunroof) and manual seats. Perfect for the track or showing off! Clean title and probably one of the best maintained E46 M3s for sale today. Over $10,000 in maintenance with receipts! The car originally had cloth interior but I replaced the cloth door cards with OEM Imola red.

Issues:
Small oil leak from CPV. New O-ring in hand, just waiting for the next oil change to replace it.
Driver side blinker sometimes fails the check so the blinker won't work for a few seconds on startup. Can't figure out why. It seems to be a common issue.

You can buy an M3 for 12k but have to turn around and drop another $5000 in replacement parts or buy one that has everything done for you already! The only thing this car needs is a set of rims and new tires. I am a car enthusiast who takes very well care of my cars. This car was used for a daily driver to and from work (15 freeway miles). Never raced or beat on. Jump on your chance to own a car that is sure to go up in value. The value of this car has gone up 13.50% in the past 90 days and continues to go up. Just search for the E46 M3 value trend. The E46 is going to be the new E30 in terms of collectability.

Pictures don't do this car justice. Come see it for yourself!

I will not ship the car, cash or money order only. In-person sale only.
No joyrides
No Lowballs
Serious buyers only
I have a carfax report from March 2019 that I can share as well.

Asking $12500
I am in no hurry to sell. The longer I wait, the more the value goes up :)
