Hi guys for those of you who know me and how attached i'm to my car i never thought i would be putting this thread up..For now it is a feeler until Sunday this week when i will be going out to look at a potential new car. If the new car sparks my interest then my baby will be looking for a loving new home.

So down to the details;

The Car: 2006 E46 ZCP M3 SMG, Silver Grey on Grey which i had two toned with blacks M3 mats and the black suede recaro Pole Positions. The Recaros are the only thing on the car that would NOT be included in the sale. If you really wanted them we can work something out.

Milage 75,008 is what is at right now, but as it is my DD it will have a few more come Sunday.

Recaro Pole Positions in Black Micro Suede
BMW Integrated Ipod Set-up

No Navigation
iND Shifter on my SMG lever for a very cup car feel and reach when shifting, (its very fun.)

Painted Satin Black Roof, Mirrors, Handels, and trunk spoiler.
The lightest Tint i could find is on the red portion of the taillights to get rid of the the red nose reindeer effect.
EAS Matte Black Kidney and Gills with monochrome Stickers
Monochrome Rear M3 emblem to match
Brand new oem BMW Roundels put on.
35% medical grade window tint.
I also bought and professionally painted and installed a euro bumper as well as had the fog lights removed.

I looked for the exact car for two years (no that is not a typo) Grey on Grey with SMG. It was like finding a needle is a haystack. I bought the car in 2008 with 12,124 miles on it and it has been truly a dream car for me.
All major and minor services were performed at Rusnak BMW in Thousand Oask, EAS, Platteforme AG, AutoTalent, Or Mike Migs at Status Gruppe.

I just had the AC filter changed, the subframe inspected, the plastic grill on the hood replaced because it was fading.

I had the SMG Pump go out and the rely at 24,000k under warranty and BMW stepped up and took car of everything and i'm not exaggerating when i say it is the best SMGi have driven to date. No faults and super fast solid shifting.

BMW NA also replaced the steering wheel even though i was the second owner because it had minor wear :lolhit:

Same goes for the Driver and Passenger Arm Rests BMW NA replaced both due to a little wear. The result is that the interior looks brand new. The only thing i had on my list to replace eventually was the center arm rest which only has a little wear on it.

All my oil changes have been done every 5k, and i like to have the valves adjusted more often than BMW recommends. Mike Migs was the last guy to do it at 70,000 miles along with a oil change.

This car is like an arm or internal organ to me as sad as the sounds and it will be very difficult letting it go. So i think it would be easier if it went to someone who would appreciate it, respect it, and love it as much as i do. :hattip:

If i do not find the car to my liking on Sunday then this Feeler will be pulled down and i will be keeping my car indefinitely. :thumbsup2:

Here are some pictures:

And here are a link to a few video's of my M3 in action as well as what the curretn exhaust set-up sounds like Short Video of My M3 - BMW M3 (E30 M3 | E36 M3 | E46 M3 | E92 M3)

If you have any questions please PM me or email me at [email protected] i respond very quickly.

THE PRICE IS FIRM AT $29,500 (This is without the Recaro's and the iND shifter but like i said if you want them we can work something out)


NO I'M NOT PARTING OUT, so please don't PM me about it

will get interior shots soon! Thanks for looking - Tommy :thumbsup2:
