As per title only selling as I have finally bought an M3.
I have owned this car for nearly six years and had no intention of selling it due to amount of time and money invested but due to a recent life event things changed. The M3 was an impulse by as this car still has 3/4 tank of fuel.
When purchased the car mileage 82945 and it is currently just under 128000, so I have travelled about 44500 miles so less than 8000 miles per year.

I am meticulous in that I never run the car out of fuel and always fill up never partly, always use high octance 97-99 RON fuel, I have full records of this and money spent on upkeep and running the car. The car has averaged over 30mpg over my ownership, I am the only person to have driven the car apart from mechanics.
The car has never been abused.
The car has only had 2 owners in the last 10 years, I am a (not too) mature driver and the previous owner was a doctor.
It has only had 3 previous in its life, so not one that has beenhawked around but one that has been enjoyed and cherished, it has NEVER been smoked in.
I am not in a hurry to sell and if I had garaging I would not sell it, I am hoping that whoever purchases the car will be someone who appreciates nice things that have been cared for.
In my ownership I have:
Headlight lenses (stone chips)
Fog lights (stone chips)
Put two new wings on the car due to the commone E46 rust problem at the same time I had the bonnet resprayed.
Standard electric mirrors with genuine M3 electric fold mirrors plus switch but not got around to getting it wired
Interior rear-view mirror with genuine M3 internal mirror
Black M Sport interior with genuine M3 individual interior heated seats with electric bolsters (heating not wired need an addl loom but do have the replacement switch gear
(The M3 pieces alone to buy are nearly a £1000)
Replaced coin tray
Replaced standard MV1 wheels with MV3 (over £400 for wheels alone)
Car has Nextbase Dashcam hardwire kit fitted
Genuine 6 CD player added, only had the single when I bought it
Replacement Depo LED rear lights and new weather strips
Last December the engine was Terracleaned
The spark plugs, coil packs and air intake hoses replace
Tyres are Continental not budgets and all have good tread
New anti roll bar
New electric switch panel for left seat as it stopped moving forward
Total spend on upkeep and updates about £7000. I have stacks of invoices and receipts.
The leather is cleaned and treated regularly, so is the paintwork, using only autoglym or other quality products. It is clayed and waxed annually and if I ever drop a sponge on the floor, I throw it away.
The car sounds and drives as it should and mechanically is sound, I am happy for you to contact and talk to my garage that has done most of the work on the car for the last 6 years.
The car is 14 years old and the mileage is low for its age, at approx 9k miles a year. But as with any car of this age there are some age related marks, some of which I inherited, some of which I have acquired from other people, but none from me.
It is however mechanically sound which is more important.
So if you are looking for a totally genuine well cared for car, then come and have a look, I am asking what I consider a fair price and appreciate that there are others out there that are cheaper, but will they be as good or come with a recent comprehensive history as mine. I am looking for a like-minded person to continue ownership, as mentioned I am in no hurry to sell it, so will not accept low offers or even discuss price without a face to face meeting.
Any questions please feel free to email me, (other than price that is)
