Rare Model & Sought After 6 Speed Manual
Top Of The Line Specification
A Stunning Convertible - Outstanding Condition
Over £40000 New

This is an extremely well maintained high spec example, its rather rare to
find the cab with the big diesel engine and the six speed manual gearbox.
The mileage may be high at 154000 though mostly motorway mileage and its
drives like a fraction of them. Equally, the paint is in very good condition
as this as arches and sills are common weak points.

The service book shows 7 stamps all BMW dealer up to 126k. The last MOT
was carried out by BMW dealer, this car has always been looked after.
There is a variety of receipts and bills, the service light states next
service not due for 13000 miles. All brakes bushes suspension component's
are in excellent order. There are no warning lights other than side light out
which I will remedy. The clutch is good, car pulls strong, engine very
healthy. Its had the swirl flap removal upgrade with CNC machined blanking
plates. All electrics work correctly.

The E46
Take one look at the convertible and you appreciate the trouble BMW took
to make the E46 convertible lower, wider and longer with a more steeply raked
windscreen. It is from every angle nothing less than a stunning exceptional
vehicle. This, a fantastic genuine specimen sporting the correct desirable
options insuring long term solid residuals. The models secret lies in its
rigid quality structure that makes it near impossible to determine the
difference between this & four door coupe motoring. This is the final incarnation
of the E46 model falling on an 55 plate, these cars have now stopped depreciating
and are becoming rather sought after. A great investment modern classic.

Note the keen aggressive looks of the factory M specced car. This facelifted
model features the broader kidney grill and the higher setting of the
indicators to the front wings. Deeper & broader front and rear bumpers,
fully de chromed & revised side skirts. Lightweight 18 inch rims, bigger
more powerful brakes and the main event being the M suspension and dynamic
stability control, the M sport models also have a tuned exhaust.

The Party Piece
A clever piece of kit as well. Should the Automatic traction control and
stability systems included as standard not be enough to prevent the car
flipping over, strong steel beams instantly shoot out from behind the rear
head restraints to protect the occupants skulls. When folded, the hood sits
neatly under a metal cover. Redesigned front seats, unique to the convertible,
incorporate the seatbelts into their structure, rather than attaching them
separately to the car body. The triple-layer hood itself has a padded lining
to reduce wind noise and there is a proper glass rear window, with demister,
in place of the old easily scratched plastic pane that plagues so many soft
tops. The BMW 3 Series Convertible is the best in the business.

What Sets It Apart?
This is a very highly specified model from the factory that specced cost
in excess of 40000 pounds when you add up all the cost options. To this
end as a used buy it represents exceptional value for money with little
pain to be had with depreciation, its done all its going to do. The car
drives like its been loved.

Cosmetically as the pictures bear testament to it is in excellent glossy
order given its 17 years. The engine bay is as new and all four
arches - a common area for rust, are blemish free. The bumpers front and
rear have marks on them and the moldings on the doors have the odd mark.
the mirror shrouds are in perfect order. The mohair hood is in excellent
condition. Very straight for its age.
