A blend of classic BMW styling and build quality with modern performance and technology, the E46 generation has gained favor among collectors and driving enthusiasts alike. This 2005 BMW M3 Coupe comes finished in Titanium Silver over grey full Nappa leather upholstery and features an optional SMG automated-manual gearbox along with a set of upgraded CSL-style wheels. Said to have been cared for by two owners and fortified with replacement rod bearings, this M3 is now being offered for auction out of California showing approximately 81k miles on the odometer.
Compared to a standard E46 3-Series Coupe, the M3 receives model-specific bumpers, rounded mirrors, body-color side moldings, a domed hood, side skirts, front fender vents, a trunk lid spoiler, and quad exhaust outlets. This M3 is finished in Titanium Silver and rides on a set of 19” CSL-style wheels. Other equipment includes a glass sunroof, xenon projector headlights, integrated fog lights, rear parking sensors, and pop-out rear quarter windows. Additional images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
The cabin is trimmed with grey Nappa leather upholstery and features M3-logo door sills, a three-spoke M sports steering wheel, and power-operated sports seats. Other equipment includes an Anthracite Alcantara headliner, a stainless-steel SMG shifter, automatic climate control, heated front seats, a Hi-Fi Harmon-Kardon sound system, and a set of custom Coco floor mats.
The E46 M3 derives power from a naturally aspirated 3.2-liter S52 inline six-cylinder engine with individual throttle bodies and double-VANOS variable valve timing. This Coupe delivers up to 338 HP to the rear wheels through a 6-speed SMG-II sequential automated manual gearbox. The seller states the engine’s rod bearings were replaced at 75k miles and the CARFAX report shows a service by M-Technik of San Antonio, Texas, in October 2022 including an oil change and A/C refrigerant recharge.
This sale will include a clean title (lien).

@Firewood We guarantee
Up to two weeks
We contacted M-Thechnic for the wheel bearing receipt but seems like they update their system two years ago
And don’t have invoices for previous works
The vehicle is in mint condition
No dings or scratches and does not need anything
It’s one of the cleanest E46 in SoCal Area
Hey again. Really like to bid, but please reply to my question...
When you say "We guarantee this unit all the way", what exactly does your dealership's actual guarantee cover for this vehicle? Just powertrain or entire car? And for how long does the guarantee run?
Thank you kindly.

I appreciate your prompt reply & confidence, and the car looks great..
Without the work documentation or receipts your guarantee goes a long way.
But as a dealer, when you say "We guarantee this unit all the way", what exactly does your dealership's actual guarantee cover for this vehicle? Just powertrain or entire car? And for how long does the guarantee run?
@Firewood We’re specialized in German cars
Based on the condition of the vehicle and inspection we’ve done on it, we’re certain its accurate
I mentioned on previous comment that we guarantee this unit all the way.
Appreciate the reply, but then without documentation, how are you certain the rod bearings work was done? Trust is important, but trust with verification is best. This is critical when buying a car, especially when not in person.
@Firewood We do not have documentation but the car is in Excellent condition. We guarantee this unit all the way
