Not one, but three extremely low-mileage examples of the BMW E46 Coupe have turned up for sale.
The E46 generation of the BMW 3-Series has a special place in the hearts of fans, as it’s considered to be one of the finest moments of the company, both in design and in engineering.
Especially the M3 version of that era, which is also the last one to use a naturally aspirated straight-six engine, was praised as one of the most balanced sports cars you can buy and a celebration of BMW M’s whole philosophy.
Hexagon Classics in UK got hold of these three examples, a 2005 330Ci M Sport with 1,300 miles, a 2002 330Ci Clubsport with 3,200 miles and a 2005 M3 SMG with 2,300 miles. All cars are offered in near factory-fresh condition and might as well represent the best E46s you can find right now.
The Silver Grey 330Ci M Sport is probably the lowest mileage E46 Coupe in existence, with its clocks showing 1,300 miles. It comes with features like an electric glass sunroof, electric front driver seats and 18-inch M Sport double spoke alloy wheels, with its 3.0-litre straight-six paired to an automatic gearbox. As for the price, this is set at £20,995 ($26k in current exchange rates).
The 2002 330Ci Clubsport on the other hand is a limited, slightly lighter edition of the regular model that came with stiffer suspension and extra aero bits on the bodywork. Having covered only 3,200 miles since new, Hexagon Classics asks for 23,995 (around $29,700), including a 12-month warranty.
And we come to the M3: finished in Alpine White over black nappa leather, this tastefully configured example comes fitted with the semi-automatic SMG gearbox, a Harman Kardon stereo, voice control, an electric sunblind for the rear window and the list goes on. Since finding an E46 M3 in such condition is near impossible, the price attached to it is rather hefty: £49,995 ($61k) to be exact.
