2005 bmw m3 coupe

fuel: gas
odometer: 102680
title status: clean
transmission: other

Selling my 2005 BMW E46 M3 with SMG (CSL software). The car is black and has a black leather interior. It's equipped with an ST coilover suspension (< 5k miles). It's low but can still be driven as a daily driver. The M3 comes with original BMW wheels from the E65, which have been repainted and are in a great condition w/o any scratches. Tires, Michelin Pilot Sport, are almost new as well.
I just completed the big service, smogged the car and renewed the registration. It's valid until Oct 2019. Smog service was done at a STAR smog station, the original exhaust and catalytic converters are installed so there won't be any surprises the next time it has to pass.
Besides, I renewed a bunch of parts, eg the kidney grill, A and C pillar covers, several plastic parts under the car, the interior rear view mirror, weather stripping at the rear windows, etc. I also installed new motor and transmission mounts as well as new bushings and the reinforcement kit for the rear trailing arms. Wheel alignment was done after the suspension was installed. The car thus handles nice, no nervous steering during up shifts.
The CSL upgrade adds rev matching to the SMG transmission and makes shifts smoother and faster. The M3 comes without a sunroof, which is very rare, resulting in less weight, a lower center of gravity and less trouble. The legacy license plates (E46 GTR) are included and in great condition.

The car is stored in a dry facility near my apartment. Nevertheless I have to pick it up from there to show it to interested people. Thus please read the following carefully before contacting me:
- The car will only be driven by myself until it's fully paid. For any test drive I'll be the driver, no exceptions.
- Please only contact me if you are interested in buying this vehicle. I'm happy to show it to those of you who are, but don't want to waste my time for those who don't.
- I'm not in a rush selling the car. Emails and calls a la "I give you xyz and pick it up tonight" will be ignored.
- The car is 13 years old, so please don't expect a car that looks like new. It has it's issues: rear parking sensors aren't working sometimes and the tire pressure control doesn't like the 19 inch wheels. Other than that it's an honest and well maintained car. No oil or water leaks.

ODO is 102680 miles. Airbag service was done so no risk of getting perforated. Title is clean.
