Produced along five generations from 1986 through 2018 with a sixth planned for 2021, BMWs brilliant M3 is the companys legendary road model purpose-built for racing homologation. Victorious in German DTM, British BTCC, and European ETCC touring-car championships, plus North American IMSA and SCCA competition, the M3 has always defined the wizardry of BMWs famed racing division, BMW M Motorsport GmbH. Produced from 2000-2006, the E46-generation M3 is highly coveted today, offered in both Coupe and Convertible body styles. Power was delivered by the 3,246cc S54 DOHC inline 6-cylinder engine, built with a cast-iron cylinder block and tough internals good for an 8,000-rpm redline. VANOS variable valve timing, higher compression, specialized valvetrain, a specific engine control unit (ECU), and dedicated oil pump supported this 333-horsepower mill for North American models from 2000-2006. Both a Getrag 6-speed manual gearbox and an SMG-II 6-speed automated automatic with paddle-shift capability were available. Performance was predictably awesome in all disciplines, with on rails handling and throttle-induced oversteer on demand.
With just one owner from new, this 2002 BMW M3 is a thrilling find for the BMW faithful with its amazing condition, 6-speed manual transmission, and low 47,197 original miles of use. Carrying a basic MSRP of $45,900 new, this M3 features beautiful optional Blue Topaz Metallic paint costing $475 extra when new, plus the $3,200 Premium Package including a moonroof, power-adjustable seats with memory on the drivers side, rain-sensing windshield wipers, automatic headlight control, and Nappa leather upholstery. Other highly desirable factory options include Heated Front Seats ($500), Bi-Zenon Headlights ($700), and Harman-Kardon Sound System ($675). Following assembly, this M3 was shipped to the United States via New Jersey and delivered to BMW of Orland Park for eventual sale. Choice and easily-reversed upgrades include an AFE cold-air intake, Scorpion exhaust system, and upgraded BSW audio system, with the original components included with the sale of the vehicle. In addition to the original window sticker confirming original options and delivery information, this stellar E46-generation 2002 BMW M3 Coupe is very well-documented with all factory-issued books/manuals and a dossier containing all service records.
