A Lovely 2005 BMW E46 M3 manual coupe which has been in current ownership for the last 11 years and covered just 69,115 miles. With 11 service stamps in the book...2 of which are BMW specialists and 9 are BMW main agents. Finished in Mystic Blue metallic with light grey leather, this lovely example is 1 of just 246 RHD coupe manual cars ever produced in this colour and it really does look superb!

With lovely straight body panels throughout, this cherished and meticulously kept example really does look superb! The Mystic blue metallic paint is in lovely order, with just a dusting of small stone chips on the flared arches visible upon close inspection. All window rubbers, weather strips and bumper corners are excellent. Factory xenon head lamps are nice and clear and all indicator lenses and rear lamps are free from damage. Door shuts and apertures are lovely and clean and the underside is lovely and clean. 

Internally, the light grey leather extendable sports seats are in lovely condition throughout and the leather has not suffered from the usual 'shine' that is very often seen on most examples. The rear seats seem to have have very little ( if any ) use. The light grey carpets are in excellent condition and have been protected by carpet overmats. All switchgear and gauges work perfectly and the full screen satellite navigation incorporates Bluetooth phone preparation and the digital TV which is in perfect working order. All electrics work perfectly, including the electric rear quarter windows. Head lining is perfect and the boot area is lovely and clean and has clearly never seen any heavy use.

The BMW main dealer purchased 19" M3 CSL alloy wheels look superb and show only the lightest of marks on just a couple of wheels. They are all shod in matching Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tyres which are 235/35/19 up front and 265/30/19 at the rear, and behind these is a very sensible brake upgrade, consisting of Porsche calipers, discs and pads...just to ensure that it stops just as well as it looks! 

Enthusiast owned for the last 11 years, the current owner made sure that he sought out one of the best, useable examples that he could find and has such, paid a premium to find this car.
