    You want to look after it
    Garage it
    Maintain FBMWSH every 15k mileage or 2 years whichever is sooner
    MOT
    Every 12 months as the paperwork looks good in service history as well
    Warranty

    Do you reckon the trader would sell the boot liner separately? I’ve been after one for ages!

    A few reviews have been made on the E46 M3 CS since the first post of thread

    Car Throttle
    https://www.carthrottle.com/post/th...to-buy-a-famous-badge-and-a-screaming-engine/

    Modern Classics by Jethro Bovingdon (ex-The EVO Magazine)
    E46 M3 CS Coupe v 1M Coupe
    https://www.modernclassicsmagazine.co.uk/buying-articles/m3-vs-1m
    It should be noted that E46 M3 CS according to the MOT history had an advisory about the brakes which would lead to the reason why in the review they complained about the brakes on that example.

    There is a recall outstanding on it by BMW Group UK
    The previous MOT advisory said
    "Rear Brakes imbalanced requirements only just met. It would appear that the braking system requires adjustment or repair. (3.7.B.5b)"
    Your M3 CS looked really great in the pics. Good article too.

    Most likely front passenger airbag. I had mine done a few years ago.

    MAKE SURE you take photographs of the interior trim around front passenger airbag as some members have mentioned damage to this when BMW Dealer replaces it.
    Take pics of the dashboard front passenger side and also front passenger side airbag. Make sure service advisor knows this and sees this as then they tell the BMW Technician to take extra care as they know you taken pictures.

    This is good advice, I've had the airbags done on my CS already.

    In my first M3 they damaged the wood trims.

    Check with BMW if you have any recalls due.

    They did not. Extremely rare trims too. May have been impossible to replace.

    They messed up a lot of the work as well at the same time, I was so annoyed I settled on a reduced price and just left.

    BMW Cambridge about 4 years ago for reference.
