have decided to sell my BMW E46 M3 due to having new Tesla, and it not getting enough use any longer.
Overall the car is spectacular, the bodywork is great with some imperfections which will detail further below and you can also see in these VIDEO WALKROUNDS 
VIDEO https://youtu.be/7aFDyht92FM

The car is mechanically sound and has been looked after by myself for the past 1/2 years but the time has come to say goodbye, the Tesla is just that good :( 
New Parts
Brand new (less than 300 miles) Front OEM Discs, Pads and Callipers. Coil packs replaced December 2019New OEM paddle shifters (nothing wrong with old ones, just marked over time, still have them)Fully serviced by me in December 2019. Last service book service was at 99k Current mileage 108011.New Tyres in February 2019 all round
Exterior
Overall the car looks incredible. the lines on the car are excellent, no dodgy panel gaps (also fully HPI clear), and paint is excellent. However there are some areas which do let it down which will detail. The worst part on the car is the front Driver's side wing, which had some bubbling under the paint and wasn't drastic, until.... wait for it.... cow kicked it! which opened up the wing as you can see it now. This is an incredibly easy repair, but have 11 cars and all need repairs and little bits here and there, so this is one hadn't got around to as yet. There is approx inch of bubbling under the opposite arch, but you have to be looking for it to see it.There is some bubbling below the damaged arch just along the top of the sill where it meets the arch.The rest of the exterior is detailed in full in the walk around VIDEO https://youtu.be/7aFDyht92FM which is here again. PLEASE WATCH ITThere is small cut in the hood where rock got kicked up from the road whilst was on the motorway, it hit the re-enforced paned under the hood as pictured, easy repair, or you could have the hood replaced. Any breaker sells these incredibly cheaply.Hard top is included and is in excellent condition and seals fully.
Interior
The car has full Black Leather interior which is in excellent condition, the driver's side bolster shows only slight amount of wear but no leather is damaged anywhere and this could be polished up with leather treatment cream.Silver trimmed dash is in very good conditionGear knob is ok but has seen better days.Everything works!!! Hood operation, electric windows, aircon blows very cold, heating works as it should, headlight bulbs recently replaced, everything as it should be.rear seats are perfect and hardly used.Carpets all nice and no damageNew Paddle shifters as aboveInterior VIDEO HERE!! https://youtu.be/Lw7kM7Q1ECY
Mechanically
This is my 6th E46 M3 in my life and it has by far been the most reliable, non problematic M3 have ever owned. The car pulls like train in every gear, every gear change is tight and precise, all of the adjustments on the gearbox work including when you enter sport mode and engage the higher speed ratio changes. 
I had coil pack go in November, which was replaced, another then went so decided to have all of the coil packs replaced as advised initially when one went.... thought knew better! did not! :D 
The engine runs beautifully and would happily hand over the keys and wish you all the best on your journey back home to Spain without any concerns about the car in the slightest. She's great.
As above, the car has new tyres all round and new front Discs, Pads and Callipers. All replaced within the last 300 miles  (6 months).
Video of it running/revving Can provide one of it driving if you like. - https://youtu.be/ilo7GM-T8bk

Overall
the car is not perfect, it does have some issues have detailed on here and shown in the video, but these are all limited to cosmetics and when buying car like this, personally would want it to be mechanically sound first and worry about replacing wing later. However want to be as upfront and open about any potential buyers buying the car which is why have gone in to great detail on the videos attached. PLEASE watch them, and please if you are unsure of anything, ask me first before bidding. As would expect the winning bidder to buy the car, not come and ask questions could answer beforehand.
The car last had service at 99k miles, it has had oil/air filter/fuel filter changes by myself annually since then.
The Vanos was checked and serviced in March 2019 along with the SMG pump etc and all found to be perfect. absolutely no issues.
The rear subframe was checked at the same time in March 2019 and again, no issues there to report. 
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE watch the videos, ask me questions, offer me deal or px if you like, but if it is insulting do not expect reply. The car is on here to sell. The only reason am selling is that it doesn't give me the speed kick used to get from it now that have Tesla. The car sounds incredible though.
10% deposit on completion of auction within 24 hours. Details of collection will only be given once this is received. 
Car is located in Bideford, North Devon.
