RE: 2001 BMW E46 M3 Pre-Production #WBSBL93401JR10027
Fully documented and Lowest Production number US Specification E-46 M3 in the world.

An M3 with Provenance and a proven history.

The final production version of the third-generation E46 M3 was first introduced in October 2000 at the Geneva Motor Show. It appeared worldwide with the new 3.2 L S54
M-tuned engine. It was only available in coupe and convertible bodies.

http://www.bmwmregistry.com/ shows that JR10027 is the oldest and lowest serial number e46 M3 in the US, built in June of 2000 to USA specs, (see e46 Coupe left US column). There is one other pre-production car in the European e46 Mregistry built in April of 2000, this is a International Spec Car (see e46 Coupe right International column).

According to BMW Group Classic / show contact info in Germany. “This car was manufactured in June of 2000 and delivered to BMW North America in September 2000.
It was returned to Germany (after was is believed to be a 12 month DOT Waver) where it is next seen in January 2002 back in Germany in the Service Centrum Regensburg” Georg confirms that it is a Pre-Production car.

Having an automobile in the US on a DOT Waiver means that when the 12 month stay is up, the automobile must be returned to the country of manufacture.

According to the BMW Service Booklet with the car, JR10027 received a replacement S54 Engine and Transmission on January 8, 2002 in Germany after it was returned to BMW. The entry stamp reads Herbert-Quandt-Allee. Interesting in that the Quandt family essentially holds BMW in much the same as the Ford family holds FoMoCo.

A second take on JR10027 is from Alex Palevsky at the www.bmwmregistry.com Here JR10027 is listed as the oldest serial number in the US. He points out the anomalies in the equipment and offers an explanation of the equipment on the car and the difference between what was finally offered on the production US cars and this pre-production M3.

There is a Build Certificate in German from Georg Blumoser that confirms what BMW North America has in english, as the original Coded Equipment list that is below.

Note: The car decodes as a USA Spec M3 and has four codes defining it as a Pre-Series USA E46 Development Vehicle in both the BMW North America and BMW Germany Computers
