Accident Info

Early 2018 I had a run in with a curb on a rainy night, contacting at the driver side wheel area. The car had 104k miles at the time - the control arm, wheel, and bumper were damaged. The driver side doorpanel/headliner airbag deployed resulting in the salvage title. Photos included.

I had the car repaired by Pacific BMW in Glendale, CA – no expenses were spared. I took the opportunity to update suspension components on both the driver and passenger side. I also chose not to fix the Vorsteiner CSL bumper because I was not happy with its quality, instead I ordered a Streamline CSL bumper which mounts like the OE version to the frame rails.

General Info & Photos

I’ve been a M car owner for quite some time and need to downsize right now. This E46 M3 is in excellent shape inside and out and has been religiously cared for from the first buyer in 03’ and through today. The car has been enthusiast owned its entire life and was sold CPO to its second owner. I’ve owned this M3 for a little over 3 years and up until recently it was my daily driver to the tune of about 10,000 miles per year - it’s built to be an everyday enthusiast car. Oil changes have been done every 5000 miles during my ownership and Blackstone reports show great health. The modifications and maintenance list above might be missing some things but I have a binder full of receipts amounting to tens of thousands of dollars that will be included with the sale. Just had brand new tires put on and have had all the fluids changed. I’d like to see the car go to another enthusiast and would love to talk to any serious parties with questions. Asking $25,900.
