For sale on behalf of a friend, for whom I helped source this car back in May 2016. We looked at a large number of cars before buying HK52 YLG. It had the best combination of specification originality, service history and overall condition, and has been a fantastic ownership experience for the past 3 years.
The bodywork and paint on HK52 YLG is in excellent original condition, with just one or two stone chips to the front end, and a single tiny dent on the passenger side rear wheel arch. There is no rust (and never has been), and the underside of the car is also in clean original order.
The service history is very good, and the indicated interval to the next service (Inspection II) is currently 15,350 miles. The car has been inspected by Westerly BMW in the last 2 months, and given a clean bill of health, including the rear subframe. They picked up just a few issues that have been attended to – an ABS ring and sensor, the oil pressure sensor/switch, and a clamp required on the front of the rear silencer box.
The interior of the car is in very good condition throughout – the black leather seats supple and clean, the carpets and mats perfect, door cards, dashboard and roof lining all excellent.
All the electrics work as they should, with the possible exception of the rear parking sensors, which occasionally give a false ‘beep’ when reverse is first engaged.
The 19” Style 67 M3 wheels were professionally refurbished in 2014 and remain in near perfect condition. Tyres are Continental SportContact to the front, Avon ZZ5 to the rear, all recent with good tread remaining.
On the road, HK52 YLG delivers scintillating performance as you would expect. A true modern classic in manual gearbox form, values of good E46 M3 coupes are firming up as appreciation of this great driver’s car increases.
The car is currently stored at Flat Six Classics premises in North Devon, and can be viewed at any time by appointment. Call Sean on 07595 455568 if you have any questions or would like to arrange to view the car and meet its owner.
