Renaissance have great pleasure in bringing to market this unmodified E46 M3 manual convertible. Finished in stunning silver grey and complimented with electric, heated black leather sports seats.

This one really does live up to one of our mission statements:

"At Renaissance Classic Sports Cars we pride ourselves in preparing and testing all cars to the highest standards and would not offer our clients any vehicle that we wouldn't be happy to personally own or drive ourselves"

This particular example has been owned and driven by one of the team for the last 16 months. Great care has been taken in selecting the best original vehicle available at the time. Ownership prior to Graham was from January 2011. I think combined with the impressive list of factory options, it made this his only choice.

This M3 has a production date 27th of May 2005, and had it's pre- delivery check at BMW UK on the 22nd of June 2005 and was registered to the first owner on the 23rd of June 2005. Production of the E46 M3 stopped in 2006. Another positive point with this 2005 car is it benefits from the lower road tax banding (2006 year models are subject to the increase).

Exterior paint finish is exceptional, with only a few minor age and mileage related blemishes. The optional M double spoke 19" alloys are unmarked and have new Michelin pilot super sports (500 miles old) As it shows no rust or damage underneath, we have put it to the ultimate test. It is currently on dispaly in our showroom. As far we know it is accident and damage free, with a fully clear HPI report. Verification from the National Mileage Register confirms the 80,425 miles are correct (average of just over 6000 miles a year). This example also comes with the original book pack, service book, folder of invoices and all previous MOT certificates (dating back to 2008) We have the full V5 and 2 keys (spare unused)

As you would expect with such a cherished example, the black nappa leather is crack and blemish free, with no bolster wear. All interior trim including dashboard and door cards are in excellent order. Factory ordered mats have protected the carpets and they look like new. It is the same story with the hood, both in and out.
