Blackstone Labs Oil Analysis Report (included - as of 04/08/19):
“The first report for your M3 turned out great! Back in 2002, BMW was still using leaded bearings, so we're impressed to find lead at 0 ppm. Averages show 6 ppm is the norm for an S54. Aside from lead, other metals also tested favorably compared to universal averages, which are based on an oil run ~4,700 miles. If this oil run was anything similar, then it's safe to say the engine is getting along well. Fuel showed up, but, other than foiling a perfect score, 0.5% fuel is harmless. That amount is usually from cold sampling and the viscosity was still in 10W/60 range”
Carfax (included) is clean with no accidents throughout its life. Previous owner, had this vehicle for over 15 years. First owner had it for a mere 8 months. I am the 3rd owner on the Carfax, and the car currently resides in Northern Virginia just outside Washington D.C. Car comes with two sets of keys, and window sticker reproduction ($61k MSRP!). I have a binder of receipts from my ownership and BMW dealer print out of previous owner service records.
Now for the typical E46 M3 Q&A
- Has rod bearing recall been done? – Yes, under warranty (2004)
- Airbag recalls been performed? – Yes, all under warranty (2013 Passenger Side and 2017 Driver Side)
- Has the Rear Subframe been Inspected/Reinforced: - Yes/No: Subframe was recently inspected as early as December 2018 and showed no signs of cracks. It is NOT reinforced.
- DME Control Module Recall – Yes, under warranty (2006)
- VANOS bulletproof – No, VANOS has not been upgraded/bulletproofed (to my knowledge)
- Clutch/Fly Wheel – Was actually completely replaced by previous owner at 60k by the stealership! (I have record of it)
Recent Maintenance; all within <1000 miles:
- Accessory Belt replacement (both A/C and Alternator/Water pump)
- Rear Differential Seal Leak Repair
- Power Steering Fluid – Flush/Fill
- Oil Service – LM 10w60
- Wheel curb rash
- Passenger seat bolster is starting to pull apart. I believe this is fairly typical on the vert seats. Very easy fix, just needs to be stitched back. Driver seat is starting to do this as well (see pictures)
- Driver armrest door trim has some scratches (see pictures)
- Front Bumper mesh grille has a crack in it, easy replacement
- Car has a lien on it. For some buyers this can be a ‘hassle’ but it would literally take 15 mins to head to bank together to sort out. Once paid in full, the lien is removed and the title released.
