Since its introduction in 1986 the BMW M series have proved to be a modern automotive icon. Combining practicality, style and spirited driving ability in a compact package, it’s the modern all-round driver’s car.
Our 2002 model looks resplendent in Metallic Titan Silver with a black leather interior. The heart of an M3 is its fabulous straight six engine. With a capacity of 3.2 litres and 6 independent throttle bodies it produces 252kW and 80% of its torque at only 2000rpm. This provides outstanding acceleration; blistering performance and a soulful exhaust note at revs. However, when in auto mode it can be driven sedately to your local supermarket!
This is done by use of its “SMG” or Sequential Manual Gearbox. This provides a clutch less manual gear change that can be modified depending upon how you want to drive, as well as an automated mode. It’s a system that takes a while to get used to, but provides a lot of driver satisfaction once mastered! Drivers aids include ABS, Electronic brake force distribution and stability control, as well as cornering brake control and traction control. Whilst safety features include dual front airbags, front and rear side air bags, front head height airbags and seat belt pretensioners.
Other features include cast alloy wheels, 10 speakers and CD changer, programable front sport seats, multi-function leather clad steering wheel, on board monitor with TV, alarm and immobiliser.
All this performance requires regular maintenance to keep at optimum condition, and this vehicle has had it. Known problems have already been addressed with a Redish improved subframe fitted, gearbox and engine mounts replaced, as well as an ECS tuning (USA) SMG pump fitted. In addition, servicing at knowledgeable service centres has kept this vehicle in tip top condition with full books and invoices.
