In 1998, the Munich-based company launched the new 3 Series generation – called E46. Of course, the E46 series also required an M3 and it was promptly submitted in 2000. This time, BMW limited itself to the targeted further development of the concept realized in the E36. The 3.2-liter in-line six-cylinder engine was designed as a true high-revving engine, with a rated speed of 7,900 rpm, with 343 hp. The liter output of the 24-valve engine was well over 100 hp – a proud value for a naturally aspirated engine. One year after the presentation of the coupé, BMW presented the M3 Cabriolet, which was no less brutal in appearance.

Although the silver paint color suggests inconspicuousness, but due to the 20 millimeters widened wheel arches in contrast to the standard E46, the curved powerdome bonnet, the cooling fins integrated into the front fenders and the large front apron, this M3 provides a striking appearance. At the rear, the M3 is expressed by the 4 large exhaust tailpipes. In terms of paintwork, repainting in the original colour took place on both fenders, but the current holder ruled out an accident. External defects can not be complained about except for normal signs of use, even parking bumps on the front bumper or the rear bumper are not to be listed.
