Default 2005 bmw m3 coupe individual estoril blue / platinum leather

The car is advertised on

The car is in an Auction on Ebay as well until the 16th Feb with the reserve well below the classified Ad price.

My mobile number is 075955 97455 if anyone would like to speak with me about the car or has any questions.

Here we have for sale my 2005 BMW E46 M3 Couple with Full BMW Comprehensive Warranty.

The Car is Unique in that it benefits from not only a BMW Individual Paint (Estoril Blue), but also a BMW Individual Interior (Platinum Nappa).

The car belonged to one of the BMW UK Directors, and the vehicle was specced personally by him when new, hence the exceptional spec.

During the M3's life, from 2001 until 2005, many changes were made to the car to improve it. Not only was there a facelift to the car in 2003, which of course my car has being a 2005 model, but also changes to things like the TV Tuner in the car being converted from Analogue to Digital. Any pre 2005 car that has the TV Fitted, has only the Analogue Tuner and can only pick up 4 channels, and when the digital switchover happens, will pick up none.

This car also has the most up to date version of the Sat Nav system, so postcode lookup, 3d Birds-Eye Nav View, Night Mode and a whole host of other features. This version is the DVD based version, not to be confused with the earlier more primitive CD Version.

Another revision in 2005 was the conversion of the CD Changer to MP3 Compatibility. The car also has full IPOD Integration, through the use of Alpine Equipment, and an Intravee box, at the cost of some 500 to me, any IPOD will now fully integrate into the car's audio system, and the songs can be selected from the main screen in the dash, whilst also charging the IPOD, and can also be fully controlled from the proper Steering Wheel Controls. There are a lot of second rate IPOD Solutions for sale which look nasty, but this system is seamless, and is the only one to have for full BMW integration.

The car also has a CD Player behind the Sat Nav Screen, and the MP3 Compatible CD Multichanger in the boot.

I could go on and on about the Specification of this car, but instead I will bullet point the rest of the spec and will leave it up to you to see just how special and rare this car is. I searched for 3 years for the right M3, and believe me, this is it.
