One of the most highly acclaimed BMWs of all time, the E46 generation M3 offers timeless styling and a powerful 3.2-liter S54 inline-six engine. This 2004 example is finished in Titanium Silver Metallic over a Black leather interior and features a desirable 6-speed manual transmission. Supported by a clean one-owner CARFAX report, this M3 is now being offered for auction by its seller out of New Jersey while showing under 98k miles on the odometer.
The M3 can be distinguished from a standard E46 Coupe by its flared wheel arches, front fender vents, unique bumpers, side skirts, power dome hood, trunk lid spoiler, pop-out rear quarter windows, rounded aerodynamic mirrors, and quad-tipped exhaust. This example is finished in Titanium Silver Metallic with black Shadowline trim and rides on dark silver 19” Style 67 M double-spoke wheels. Other features include an electric glass sunroof, rear Park Distance Control (PDC) sensors, front fog lights, automatic xenon headlamps, white indicator lights, chrome front kidney grilles, and a roof-mounted antenna. The seller notes new Pirelli P Zero tires have been installed along with new BMW roundel badges for the hood and trunk. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
Inside, this M3 is appointed with Black Nappa leather upholstery, Titan Shadow trim, and an Anthracite headliner. Accessories include heated and power-adjustable sport seats, a three-spoke M steering wheel with tri-color stitching, M3-branded door sills and floor mats, an M footrest pedal, an M shift knob, and silver M3-specific gauges with engine warmup lights. The driver is also provided with power windows and mirrors, seat position memory, automatic climate control, cruise control, rain-sensing wipers, an onboard computer, and a BMW Business CD stereo paired with a Harman/Kardon sound system. Some signs of wear are present throughout the interior and the seller reports all gauges and accessories to be fully functional.
The E46 M3 is powered by a 3.2-liter S54 inline-six with individual throttle bodies, quasi-dry sump lubrication, and double-VANOS variable valve timing. Up to 330 HP and 269 lb.-ft of torque are sent to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. The CARFAX report shows a history of dealer maintenance including airbag assemblies replaced in 2016 and a new thermostat installed in 2021. The seller notes the most recent service was completed in November 2023 and there are no outstanding maintenance items at this time.
This sale will include some documentation and a clean title.
