    Hi folks,

    After a very long decision process I have decided that the time has come to sell my M3. After being on here a couple of years and seeing how a for sale thread can go, I was a bit dubious about posting but I think it's only fair that I do. I bought it in February 2016 and I have loved every minute of owning it but I just don't use it enough and with the dog and possibility of kids in the near future, it's sadly time to move on.

    BMW E46 M3 SMG coupe
    2002 52
    92726 miles, might go up slightly but not by much
    Imola red and black leather
    10 former keepers
    Mot is due on the 15/03/2019, passed with no advisories.

    Service history:
    Running in check - Elms BMW, 3154, 11/11/02
    Oil service - Couper BMW, Reading, 14612, 29/05/03
    Inspection l - Templetons Garage, Northants, 22498, 12/04/05
    Oil Service - Blue Bell Wilmslow BMW, 35743, 04/06/07
    Oil Service - Acklams Car Centre, Acklam, 44350, 24/09/08
    Oil Service - Acklams Car Centre, Acklam, 62332, unknown

    Inspection ll - Halfords Auto Centre, Birmingham, 75902, 28/02/2014
    Oil Service - Tops Auto Service, Maidenhead, 86838, 29/10/16
    Inspection ll - A Reeve Performance, Kings Lynn, 92314, 01/12/17

    Whilst it was at A Reeve Performance, it was found that the cam lobes were worn. After a few discussions with Aaron and after he assured me that it was acceptable and he had done it plenty of times before, he fitted second hand cams with 60000 miles on them. Whilst the cams were being changed, the vanos was overhauled too. The auxiliary belts were changed, Powerflex front arm rear bushes were changed, both track rod and tie rods were replaced and a hunter alignment carried out.

    Performance:
    The engine is standard apart from a scorpion backbox with revshift poly exhaust hanger inserts. I had it dyno'd at Evolve on the 04/11/2016 and a new MAF sensor was fitted too, 322 bhp was her best.

    I know that my car isn't and won't be to everyones taste and might prefer it to be oem but it's not and I won't be returning it to oem or selling the mods separate. I hope the thread is kept on track but in true cutters style, probably not. Please have a look at my build thread for a start to finish progress and for more info and detailed photos.

    As I have said, I have tried to be as honest as possible and I am happy to answer any questions or send any photos of paperwork or of the car. If you are interested, please PM me and we can talk. Any test drives will need proof of insurance but happy to take anyone out if not.

    I am asking £11,500 and I think this is fair due to the mileage, condition, maintenance and mods.

    Cheers :thumbsup:

    Slight addition to the bad points. When I was cleaning the interior I noticed I had a dreaded line on my rear view mirror. It wasn’t leaking but I have removed it as I didn’t want to risk leaving it to ruin my interior.

    I am not sure what has happened to my photos either but I’ll see what I can do. In the mean time, just let me know and I’ll send you them direct.

    Cheers :thumbsup:
