After recently moving into Chicago to be closer to work, my car has become a garage queen. What also came along with the move, is a much higher cost of living, and small garage space - much different than the past.

I've made the unfortunate decision to sell my dream car, in an effort to help improve my financial situation, and avoid it getting torn up from living in the city. This likely won't bode well with everyone, but the asking price is $23k, firm. Some of you will be questioning whether that's on the high side, and it may be, however there is not one other AW ZCP E46 M3 on the market. I'd like to list this for $25k, but after the deets, you'll understand where the difference is coming from.

Here's the details:
  • 2005 E46 M3
  • Alpine White (AW)
  • Competition Package (ZCP)
  • SMG
  • 65,000 original miles
  • Clean Title
  • Has been through inspection levels I&II by bmw techs at EuroQuipe in St.Charles and has passed every check point. Meaning no subframe issues, bearing issues, etc.
  • Former CPO car, and I have every single record and purchase ever made for the car including the original window sticker :read:
  • ESS Tuning ECU Flash
  • Hotchkis Sway Bars (front and rear)
  • Tints 35% all around
  • Smoked corners (I also have clear and amber)
  • Paint matched reflectors
  • Black Kidney Grills and Side grills
  • Hawk Blues
  • Black Plasti-dipped wheels (as of Feb. 15 - willing to remove)
  • CSL Front wheels (.5" wider)
  • Tires = Potenza RE-11s
Current condition:
The car is super clean, and for a 2005 w/ ONLY 65k MI on it, it seriously looks beautiful! One blemish on the under body of the side-skirt (see photos), other than that, everything is super clean. Rear tire tread is low, and ready to be replaced, because I'm barely driving it (2mi round trip to work here and there) I'm not looking to toss on new rubbers. Rotors all 4, are in good condition. Brake Pads: Front 60%, Rears are around 20%. < also something planned, but holding off for now.

Recent Maintenance:​
  • Control arm bushings replaced at 60k.
  • Belt replaced at 60k
  • Alternator Replaced at 60k.
  • Water pump and thermostat replaced at 60k
  • Banjo fitting for power steering pump replaced.
  • Last serviced around 60k for oil, fluids, updated inspection.
Extras - **** yeah!
  • I have a set of 17" winter wheels and tires that I slapped on this winter. They may have ~500 mi on them, if that. If you want them, they're yours. Otherwise I'm going to sell them separately.
  • I have 2 premixed bottles of coolant from bmw. You can have those too! :cool:
  • Last but not least, I work for Xtreme Xperience (supercar track xperience) and I will give you a wicked discount on a drive in any car you want, if you buy b4 our Chicagoland events this fall (Blackhawk = Sep 18-20 / Autobahn CC = Oct 23-25).
