Complete 17k refurbishment/refresh

Late 2004 “54” E46 M3 For Sale – Complete refurbishment/refresh over past 2 years !!!

Purchased by me in Dec 2016, previous owner had the car for 6 years. Always wanted a good E46 (im a BMW enthusiast and Owners club member) and found a local one, purchased it with the aim of having the best one out there (there are so many poor condition cars out there). After purchase had a rod bearing spin so made the decision to fully invest and refresh the whole car, so to try and achieve on of the best E46’s in the UK.
