Review by Legendary Sports Cars

The car has covered 70,500 miles & comes complete with a full BMW main dealer service history.

Legendary Sports Cars are proud to present this BMW M3 Saloon with its naturally aspirated high revving 4.0 litre V8 which was made at the same foundry as the BMW Sauber F1 team’s V8. Amazingly the V8 is actually 10kg lighter than the outgoing 3.2 litre staight six from the E46 M3.

The M3 Saloon is practical as it has the advantage of a big boot and four doors, but set the dampers, steering, and engine to their sportiest modes and you have a car that can hold its head up high in the company of V8 Aston Martin’s, Porsche 911’s and Audi R8’s. The V8 4.0 litre likes to be revved high, and the performance is undeniable as the car surges towards any given horizon.

This car has a 6 speed manual gearbox, and the desirable option of EDC (electronic damper control- a system which automatically or manually adjusts each damper to suit the driving conditions)

The M3 Saloon is a relatively rare sight on the UK roads, which, ultimately makes it quite a cool car.

It is painted in the iconic Silverstone II which is ‘M’ car specific.

This M3 Saloon comes complete with a client presentation file which includes all historic & relevant documents/bills, the all important service booklet and most importantly all the invoices relating to the recent work on the above list.

“The depth of the M3’s talent, however, is telling. For point-to-point pace it easily matches the Merc but, more than that, it feels special doing it – accurate, agile, finely balanced, biddable – where the Merc is merely accomplished. In short, the M3 saloon is sharper, cuts deeper and will keep you hooked for longer.” - An extract from a 2008 review of the M3 saloon courtesy of EVO magazine. Full Article Here
