Renaissance have great pleasure in bringing to market this unmodified E46 M3 manual coupe. Finished in stunning carbon black and complimented with rare kiwi electric, leather sports seats.

This M3 was allocated build week 34 in 2002 and was first consigned on the 27th of August. Arrival at Stratstone Hull was early September. Pre- delivery check completed at 10 miles it was registered to the first owner on the 25th of the same month.

Exterior paint finish is exceptional, with only a few minor age related blemishes. All of the 18" alloys are unmarked and have Michelin pilot sports fitted. As far we know it is accident and damage free, with a fully clear HPI report. Verification from the National Mileage Register confirms the 48258 miles are correct (average of just over 3000 miles a year). This example also comes with the original book pack, service book and inspection reports. We have the full V5 and 2 keys

During Mr Murray's 10 year ownership from 2007 to 2017 the car was used very occasionally and kept in dry secure storage. As you can imagine this has helped keep this vehicle out of the modification scene and is as BMW intended.

Do not miss the opportunity to own such an original, unmolested example. As expected it drives without fault and at this money represents a great potential investment. Values of original E46's will surely follow all previous M models and only go one way......
