Default EYEHAVEYOU - '06 Interlagos Blue / Imola Red ZCP 6MT

After the demise of my last M3, I started looking for a replacement toy. Initially I thought it was a good time to try something else before getting another E46, and considered everything from a CLK63 Black Series to a NA1 NSX but just never found the "right" car as I was pretty picky about options/colors on everything I looked at. When I saw this ZCP pop up with just shy of 55k miles I couldn't resist it, the allure of this "perfect" (at least to me) M3 was too much. If I had the means back in 2006, this is likely how I would've ordered the car. Seems it was built in May of 2006, which I think makes it one of the latest E46 M3s to roll off the line. Here's the (very basic, only has competition package and xenons) build sheet:

Vehicle Identification Number: WBSBL93446PN66089
Type: BL93
Model: M3 - USA
Development Code: E46 (2)
Chassis: COUPE
Steering: LL
Doors: 2
Engine: S54
Displacement: 3.20
Power: 252
Drivetrain: HECK
Transmission: MECH
Color: Interlagos Blau Metallic - A30
Upholstery: Teilleder W.n./imolarot - N5IM
Production Plant: REGENSBURG
Production Date: 2006-05-12

Options
1CA Selection Cop Relevant Vehicle
428 Warning Triangle
441 Smokers Package
473 Armrest, Front
521 Rain Sensor
522 Xenon Light
640 Car Telephone Preparation
650 Cd Player
676 Hifi Loudspeaker System
692 Cd Changer I-bus Preparation
7MA Competition Package
8SP Cop Control
863 Europe/dealer Directory
880 English / On-board Documentation
946 Consideration Of Price Dependency

Current list of modifications follows:

Suspension
KW Coilover Variant 3 - Link
Turner Motorsport Front/Rear Sway Bars - Link

Transmission/Driveline
Dinan Short Shifter Kit - Link

Brakes
Ate Type 200 Racing Brake Fluid - Link
Pagid RS29 Yellow Brake Pads Front/Rear - Link
Goodridge G-STOP Stainless Steel Brakeline Kit - Link

Engine
Dinan Free Flow Exhaust - Link
Dinan Stage 2 Performance Engine Software - Link

Interior
OEM Auxiliary Input Retrofit Kit - Link
OEM Auxiliary Connection Cable (.8 Meter) - Link

As the car was originally sold to someone in the US military stationed in Germany, and spent its first year there, it never came with a window sticker, which was a bit unfortunate as I like collecting them. As such, I had Stuttgart Studios make a "reproduction" of sorts, with all the options listed (or lack thereof):



The PO was impressively OCD about maintenance, having just recently completed a valve adjustment and complete cooling system overhaul. I'll be doing some minor r&r on interior trim pieces, and possibly removing some of the mods, but not much else planned immediately.

The PO bought the car from EAG at just shy of 42k miles, they still had some nice shots up on their site so I'll steal those to start off:

























Some more shots the PO sent me while the car was for sale:





























Odd detail, but seems BMW changed the owners handbook leather case in 2006, when compared to the one I had in my 2005 MY


Lots of OEM parts and some extra tires in the sale, which is always nice


Lastly, a few pics from when the car was delivered to me. I used it Intercity Lines to ship the car, was entirely pleased with their services and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.











This sticker must be why they can charge an extra $10k, right?


Will make another post once I get some proper pics of my own taken at a later date.

Sorry about your old car, but IB is much better color.

I may be a little biased though.

Thanks, I've always been a fan of IB as it looks so different depending on the lighting conditions. Being an M color, as opposed to something you could've ordered on a "regular" E46, is also a plus. That said, I think AW shows the lines of the car better than anything else - and looks most at home on the track! Mostly I'm just excited to have joined the slicktop club like you.

I've even had a 1:18 model of an IB E46 for some time (inspiration I suppose), now I just need to figure out how to paint the interior in Imola

OCD levels of maintenance/detailing and enjoy it at the occasional track day - basically nothing near as exciting as your journals! I do have a new set of OEM CSL wheels that I bought for my old car that I might throw on, although the ZCP wheels on the car are nearly mint. Long term my "grail" mods would be BBS E88s, 4 corner BBK and an OEM CSL airbox, not much else I could imagine doing to the car.

The Kyosho models have been out of production for some time, they pop up on eBay every now and then. The ones with the CSL wheels like this typically go for around $300 now, which is pretty crazy.

I also just took a high-quality scan of a poster I've had for a while, thought I'd share with the forum. This advert is probably partially responsible for me having wanted IB for so long...



If you click the image, it should take you to my flickr where you can get a version in 4k+ resolution.

Some bonus Competition Package marketing literature/brochure as well:
