Picked up a 2006 E46 Conv (Manual) with 60k for the wife! This is the first M3 I have ever owned and I am looking forward to the ownership/driving experience. The wife is in love with it to say the least.

It appears that your wife has impeccable tastes! One of the best color combos in the E46... The Imola red interior will be getting a lot of compliments... You DO realize that this witll ganer her more that the usual amount of attention!!! Are you ready for that And did you get a waiver from her to allow you visitation to the ///M3? AT least one weekend a month!

IMHO the perfect pair of garage mates!

You just bought the exact car that I have been looking for. Nice find! I know how hard it is to find a decent e46 M3 convertible w/o SMG.

Great color combo, and a drop top just in time for spring.... One day we're gonna add an e46 vert to the stable, we had an e36 vert for years and it was a blast. Enjoy!

19" ZCP wheels, H&R Sport springs. DONE!

A 06 M3 in that combo is a hard find. She's gonna love it.

Nice - congratulations! Love the S54. Looks like the E46 is Silver Gray - if you you and I have identical color combos (Sterling Gray S62, Silver Gray S54)!

Well done! Welcome to the E39 M5/ E46 M3 club! Car looks beautiful! Check out the RTAB and give a look underneath at the subframe.

Enjoy the ride!

I'm picking up an E46 M3 Vert with that color combination. The IR interior caught my attention. It's a very nice combo. I also have a Hellrot Red/Dove Gray e36 M3 Vert (5spd). Congrats!

Thanks everyone. It has been a blast so far. Those engines are pretty sweet and I now know about that long 3rd gear!!

I got lucky on the find. Bought it from a guy at work that was looking to move on to a newer model. I really wasn't looking and couldn't turn it down once I knew it was going up for sale.
