First off let me start by saying that I'm not even sure I want to get rid of this car, actually... I haven't owned it that long and it's an absolute blast to drive. I think the real issue is that being as though I've got a family I find that the car doesn't get driven at all which is mostly due to the fact that it's a 2 door and we have a 18 month old girl who requires a car seat. No way in hell I am trying to get a car seat in the back of the M3. I guess at some point I just figured maybe I would have been better off if I'd bought an M5 because then I could haul the family around but still be 'fast'.

That being said, I feel like a trade straight across would be fair since both of these cars in good condition have similar values. Not only that but I think that it's not a downgrade or an upgrade for either of us since both of these cars are pretty evenly matched performance wise. The M3 is faster off the line but the M5 is king up top. If I find the right E39 M5 I am more than willing to do a straight across trade, if not, no big deal, I LOVE this car and absolutely don't mind holding onto it since it's super clean and I've got the room. If you do have an M5 you might want to trade all I ask is that it be very well kept and super clean like mine. I don't want a 'project' by any means. I want a car that runs, drives, and is reliable just like my M3.

Anyways, about this car...

This car is a 2003 BMW M3. The car is carbon black metallic with nappa black leather interior. I purchased the car from the original owner who purchased it brand new from the BMW dealer (Kuni BMW) back in 2003. The guy who bought this car had it fully optioned out with EVERY SINGLE OPTION YOU COULD GET from the factory. It has the cold weather package, premium package, harmon kardon sound, factory navigation, rear airbags, and even the ultra rare rear sunshade feature.

The car has been very tastefully modified to include Koni adjustable shocks, Eibach springs, a VF Engineering intake and tune (dyne proven 35+ wheel horse power), and that's it. The windows were professionally done with a non fading carbon film in 35% all around. This car has an SMG transmission that has recently had the pumps replaced among other things.

I have coded several features on the car including the CSL transmission tune, M-track mode, fogs on with high beams, disabled amber running lights, one click unlock with FOB, and numerous other things.

The car does not have a single scratch anywhere on it and has not a single dent either. The only issue at all are small rock chips on the front bumper which is to be expected on a car this age. Other than that every single thing works perfectly and it has ZERO running issues whatsoever including NO oil leaks.

The car has the factory 19" ZCP competition wheels (not the cheap CSL replicas like most people get), BRAND NEW (I mean 10 miles total) Michelin PSS tires, and a host of other things.

I kid you not that this is one of the cleanest E46 M3s you will ever find, period. I am a BMW enthusiast and always have been. This car is NOT parked outside, online in a heated garage where it NEVER sees rain. It is not my daily driver and probably sees 1k miles a year or less. It's fast, it's fun, and it's sporty as hell.

Anyways, I won't be checking this thread so please either email me at [email protected], or call / text me at 503.701.5752. Thanks guys!

Consider trade for a 2002 M5 with 135k? Recent work includes new clutch (100 miles ago), rear main seal, valve cover gaskets, oil level sender, oil change, differential pinion seal, exhaust gaskets, interior detail and new OEM floor mats on order.

Sounds like what I'm looking for. BTW I should mention my SMG pump was done as well as the VANOS about 10k miles ago. The dealership performed all of the work.

To everyone who has PMd me, I can't respond to PMs since apparently this forum requires 150 posts to respond to a PM.
