How much does it cost to do one of those conversions? Iím slapping myself for paying a premium on a 115k mile E46 just cause it was a zcp in interlagos blue and 6mt

Thanks, this is my first ever E46 M3. After extensive research, i went searching with Maintenance/Mileage over Mods as a goal.

I have owned 2 E60 M5's previously, and must admit i am a bit OK with the SMG . I have also read that 6 Speed Swapping would not really add any big value, as it is not a pure breed. So i plan to stay on top of maintenance, as well as some preventative maintenance mods i have planned for the SMG and just enjoy it for the time being.

Your car and mine may be cousins. Mine is a 2002-vert-38K-wind deflector

What's a SmartTop? I have a matching M3 hardtop (trim color matches paint instead of being chrome), but I'm unfamiliar with a SmartTop.

Congrats on your purchase.

Thanks!
Smarttop is an electronic module used to control the roof. It allows for 1 touch opening/closing using the dash buttons (no need to hold the buttons down). and from the key fob 3 presses to either open or close (closing is disabled by default). Also it allows controlling the roof while the car is moving (upto 40kph).

Bought this on a whim after realizing these now sell for under $10k. Paid $8,500 which I thought was crazy low...

About 15 years ago I had an 01 e46 M3 and it has always been my favorite.

Model Year: 2002
Mileage: 95,000
Coupe or Convertible?: Convertible
Exterior Color: Silver
Interior Color: Black
Manual or SMG?: SMG
Major Options: cold weather, PDC, xenon etc..
Under Warranty? (if yes, please indicate type and remaining coverage): No
Overall Condition (Excellent, Good, Fair, Poor): Good
Any unusual items that affected value?: Needed 4 new tires. Brake pads and rotors pretty new but rusty from sitting. Some scuffs and touch ups on lower front bumper. Good paint and interior. Everything worked. Rod bearings done under warranty at 30k miles. SMG pump replaced at 60k. Pretty solid maintenance history since new.
With Whom Did You Complete the Sale? (Private, BMW Dealership, Other Dealership, Auction): private
How Did You Find Seller/Buyer?: eBay

Sale Location (City, State): Gaithersburg, MD
Sale Date (Month, Year): April 2019
Seller Asking Price: $9,000
Final Sales Price (amount seller received): $8,500
Est. Published Value, if known (KBB, Edmunds TMV, NADA, etc.):
Other Comments (amount of time in the market, successful negotiating tactics, words of advice, pictures, etc.): Had been listed several times starting as high as $13k. Post sale inspection revealed it needed a new tie rod (did both) and also had a sticking caliper (rebuilt both fronts). Replaced battery and fluids. No subframe cracks. SMG is strong. Running great now.

Next...I'm going to investigate and fix the squeaky convertible top. Will do 6 SPD swap if SMG gives me any trouble in the future. Thx for everyone's great contribution here. Lots of good info...

Orginal owner sold the zcp wheels to a honda guy... Car does have accident reported. Rear quarter panels was replaced after being side swiped. Car was on the market for a long time orginally was asking 16k than 13k, settled at 9k. PPi showed only guibo and RTAB need soonish replacement. I don't think i got a smoking deal but a fair pricing for a zcp missing its wheels(like wtf....) and accident reported
