2002 BMW E46 M3 6 speed manual 93k miles Carbon Black big maintenance list for sale

$26,200 - 93k miles - 6 speed manual - Colorado

Reason for selling: I have a new G80 M3 on order

Carbon Black

Second owner

(technically the 3rd)

The actual second owner was a middleman/broker

1st owner was a proverbial nice older lady who drove the care ~4,500 miles per year and kept it garaged in California (Bay Area). I took ownership at 84k miles.

All maintenance done by original owner was through dealership and Palo Alto BMW. I have all the paperwork for the latter and everything I have performed below. The car runs and looks great with no current issues. She replaced the soft top before I purchased the car.
