2006 BMW M3 E46 Convertible - 6 Speed Manual - LOW Miles
This 2006 BMW M3 convertible is finished in Imola Red over black Napa leather, and it has just under 49k miles.
This is also an official "BMW Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle" via a local New Jersey dealer, and noted on the official Carfax (click here to view the report).
It's quite the process where a dealer is putting their name and service department behind the most comprehensive investigation. All scheduled maintenance is performed, the full frame/subframe is checked for any damage or potential future issues proactively, and all official BMW recalls are performed such as airbags and other safety related fixes and improvements.
BMW ELIGIBILITY - SELECTIVE FROM THE START
To be eligible for enrollment in the BMW Certified Program, a late-model vehicle must have more than 300 miles but less than 60,000 miles on the odometer. We review each vehicle's CARFAX™ or AutoCheck® report, and ensure that it has genuine BMW parts, plus an up-to-date maintenance history.
BMW INSPECTION - 360° VEHICLE INSPECTION
Before a pre-owned BMW can receive the distinction of being Certified, it has to go through a detailed 360° vehicle inspection, get reconditioned and approved by our trained technicians who know it best – because who’s doing the certifying matters. We inspect every vehicle for safety, performance, and wear, down to the subtle details. If it can't be fixed to our standards, it can't be a Certified Pre-Owned BMW.
Power is provided by a 3.2-liter S54 inline-six paired with a six-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential, and features include a power-retractable black soft top, a Harman Kardon stereo, Navigation, Xenon headlights, and 19″ forged wheels.
This car is offered with service records, an accident-free Carfax report, and a clean NJ title in my name. Additionally, shipping is available and I will help arrange my side.

Light yet tasteful Modifications include:
Dinan cat back exhaust (perfect exhaust for this car with no drone), Alcantara wrapped steering wheel, Carbon mirror caps, Black grille (kidney front and sides) All original stock parts are included with the sale. I can also re-install the stock parts prior to delivery.
Paint presents near perfect with no visible swirl marks or oxidation. Car was professionally detailed this past fall. All panels have even matching paint with no signs or any repairs or respray. Amazing finish and gloss is visible throughout. There are two very small imperfections (dimples) on the rear quarter both of which can be easily removed by a painless dent removal process. Each is less than a dime is size and one is not visible with the top up.
There are no other visible imperfections and is likely the best condition 2006 on the market.
The interior is super clean with no smells, marks, scratches or scuffs of any significance. The leather doesn't show any wear, even in the side bolsters. Carpeting is clean and fresh.
All items work as they should, although the navigation is a bit dated and you're better off using your phone.
The top looks near new with no creases, fading or tears anywhere. It also operates smoothly and without drama.
Every other car I've seen online does not even come close in terms of condition and is priced accordingly. If condition is not as important to you there are definitely less expensive cars out there, especially if you're willing to settle for the clunky auto transmission or SMG.
I'd like to pass this car along to someone that will continue to preserve it and I'm willing to wait. I've owned the car for a bit over two years and it has performed admirably. Only thing needed during my ownership was a single oil change.
The Dinan exhaust was carefully chosen to provide just the right amount of performance rumble without having my wife complain about the sound (no easy feat). This is especially important in a convertible so you can enjoy it with the top down.
The person I purchased the car from locally was also a responsible adult who took great care of it.
