This 2003 BMW E46 M3 Convertible comes finished in silver over a black leather interior and features a 6-speed manual transmission paired with its 3.2-liter S54 inline-six, along with a limited-slip differential, 19” wheels, heated power-adjustable front sport seats, and a Harman Kardon sound system. It has been tastefully upgraded with a CSL carbon fiber intake, an M3 CSL engine MAP, BMW Performance brakes, H&R sway bars, KW coilovers, polyurethane bushings, and more. This E46 Convertible is now being offered for auction at no reserve while showing just under 153k miles on its odometer.

This M3 comes finished in silver with a black power-retractable soft top which can be raised or lowered in approximately 20 seconds. Compared to the standard 3-Series, the M3 sports wider fender flares, side air vents, revised front bumper, mirrors, rear valence, and a signature M-Power quad-tip exhaust. The seller reports that the vehicle was completely refinished in 2017 while under previous ownership, and adds that paint protection film covers the full front end. Additional images can be found in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. Details include xenon headlights, fog lights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, LED tail lights, black kidney grilles, and a set of 19” BMW Style 127 wheels. The wheels come dressed in a set of Michlin Pilot Sport 4S tires bearing date codes from 2021.

Inside, the black leather interior is highlighted by M-specific details including Sport Seats, a thicker M-Sport leather steering wheel with contrasting stitching, and an M gauge cluster with special warm-up lights unique to the S54 engine. Additional factory features include brushed aluminum interior trim, automatic climate control, cruise control, an upgraded touch screen radio head unit, M3-branded floor mats, and Harman Kardon audio. The seller notes imperfections on the driver seat bolster, and confirms that all gauges, electronics, and accessories remain functional.

Power comes from the venerable 3.2-liter S54 inline-six, generating up to 333 HP and 269 lb.-ft of torque. Widely regarded as one of BMW’s best engine designs, the S54 derives motorsport technology including individual throttle bodies, quasi-dry sump lubrication, and upgraded Mahle pistons. Originally equipped with an SMG automatic transmission, the rear wheels are now driven by way of a 6-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. Performance upgrades include a CSL carbon fiber intake, a ZCP ECU with an M3 CSL MAP, BMW Performance front 6-piston brake calipers and front strut tower bar, ECS Tuning front brake rotors, Porsche 996 911 rear 4-piston brake calipers, stainless steel brake lines, KW  V2 coilovers, and polyurethane bushing for the rear trailing arms. The CARFAX includes 29 service history entries dating back to 2003, and service under current ownership has included the replacement of the bottom-end engine gaskets, new rod bearings, an alignment, a rear differential flush, and oil and filter services. The seller has provided service documentation which is available for reference in the gallery.

This sale will include a clean title. 

The seller would like you to know: "Please ask me anything you want to know and I will be happy to assist. This car is immaculate and I am selling it because I have a 1988 BMW M3 coming from Colombia and I don’t have space for more toys."

    I have owned a few E46 M3s & E39 M5s, Alpinas, etc, and own three now. But never tracked one. Must be a blast! Wish there was a track here in the sticks, but closest is like 3 hours away. Any event, enjoy this gem, and have fun at the raceway! You bought a sweet looking M3!

    Have you done the VANOS?

  • alvarouribe1988 (seller) 11 months, 3 weeksago

    @zollerm Please find below the link for their website and what the kit included: https://amsautomotivegroup.com/products/2001-2006-bmw-m3-manual-conversion-kit

  • alvarouribe1988 (seller) 11 months, 3 weeksago

    @zollerm good afternoon. The bill was only for labor. The kit was purchased at a different store. I paid exactly $2,300.50 for the kit. The name of the store is AMS Automotive group.

  • zollerm (registered bidder) 11 months, 3 weeksago

    Sir, do you have a receipt for the manual installation... I see the bill for the "transmission swap?" Was that the entire cost? Thank you.
