If mileage and maintenance are about the same I'd start mulling over the cars in terms of worn rubber and trim components. That decision would be a tough one for me but really comes down to personal preference. Knowing what I know now I think I'd opt for the 03.5 slicktop. LCI has a bunch of nice subtle upgrades as I've come to learn. The business cd is easier to integrate with aftermarket Bluetooth. The bumpers fitments are better because of the oem clips that hold them in place that pre-lci models don't have. I'm not a huge fan of the leds but there's another plus if you like them. Last thing is from the data on this forum we're led to believe BMW did something about subframe in the LCI models because they have had less problems - even though as far as I know BMW has never formally acknowledged this.

Would probably pick the 03.5 Jet Black over the 01 LSB.

03.5 Jet Black. As much as I love color combos, it was not a priority for me when I was searching for an E46M. I was more concerned with mileage, maintenance, and the overall condition of the vehicle. And then I got my '04 Jet Black.

LSB is a classic E46 M3 color. I am shopping now and only looking for LSB.

I am biased I had a 2003 LSB 6 speed coupe, sunroof delete car with black interior but it was stolen.

Hi,
Sorry to hear about your LSB. I'm sure that it was nice. You have some very nice other rides! I think that I'm going to keep both m3's. It's nice to drive my black slicktop sometimes and the LSB too. Both manuals. I just can't seem to let go of either one of them. I really like these BMW's. Thanks for your input!
