SinceLastVisitFilter false, 1557453403602 ; listingsSearchManager. The recall began Aug 2016. My new Suburu Forester is beautifully detailed and mechanically checked out. A second notice was mailed when an adequate supply of parts became available, on December 1, 2014. Test results confirm it's no faster than the regular M3 coupe; our 13.
The seller notes that the passenger side front diffuser is cracked. He also persisted in a most helpful and persistent way by anticipating my questions and providing answers. Documentation history is available from the seller and the previous two owners. The seller notes some exterior issues including rock chips on the front, a scratch on the hood near the passenger headlight, and a small touch-up on the rear passenger side. That's because the new suspension settings are actually softer than those of the regular M3. The seller notes that the navigation display has some dead pixels, and all other gauges, lights, and accessories work as they should. Hope you sell lots of cars! They think we're soft or something? This is a re-list after the car previously.
These are the competition package ones, so I don't know about the other versions. And out here on the switchbacks there seems less menace in the machine. Few cars before or since have quite captured the magic of the E46 M3 and no car manages to combine fun and everyday usability in quite the same way. The car on offer today is one of the best examples cars that we have come across in recent years. The 1200 mile running-in service was completed by Scotthall at 1,241 miles.
Hit the Sport button on the center console, which alters the ratio of throttle opening to pedal movement and recalibrates the engine map to deliver a more electric response to inputs from your right foot, and the M3 Competition Pack becomes a precision instrument designed to carve through corners with surgical accuracy. The Competition Package is probably the best four grand you could spend on an M3. The upgraded brakes are certainly in Porsche's league. To give them a proper farewell, we gathered an example from each generation and spent two days…. Naturally both remote keys and valet key are present. The dealership has a straightforward, no nonsense approach.
And, man, it feels good. This car rides better than any M3 on 19-inch wheels we've ever experienced. You'll drive it knowing that, with the V-8 powered E90 M3 in the works, it's possibly the last in a line of ultra-high-performance six-cylinder coupes that stretches back to 1972 and the storied 3. Haunt you, and taunt you. The accident-free Carfax is shown in the gallery.
Those vehicles were mistakenly identified as including the air bags that are subject to this recall. But best of all, you can switch the whole lot off and trust the computer between your ears: This is one of the few cars we've tested where the 200-foot circle can be completed entirely on opposite lock, balancing everything with tiny throttle and steering inputs the whole way around. The seller is the 7th owner and has driven the car 1,000 miles. All paint and panels are believed to be original. This is a rare opportunity to acquire to an E46 M3 with low mileage that remains in such original condition.
Plus there's the cost of that trick carbon-fiber roof. Units Affected 574007 Soon, we'll bid farewell to the E92 M3, a car that's received no shortage of praise from us over the years. The affected vehicles are equipped with a dual-stage driver frontal air bag that may be susceptible to moisture intrusion which, over time, could cause the inflator to rupture. An amazingly powerful engine that delivers more than 100 hp per liter without the need of forced air induction. The car is and feels very fast. Oh, and there's a new color--Interlagos Blue--that's available only when you tick the Competition Pack option code. The grey leather interior features Competion Pack upgrades including an Alcantara steering wheel cover and aluminum trim.
Please note that the 5-series and X5 vehicles are only included if they are equipped with the optional sports steering wheel. Additionally, vehicles that have had their driver side frontal air bag replaced previously as part of a recall remedy need to have their air bag replaced under this recall as well. The sale could not be not completed because the buyer refused to follow through with their commitment to purchase and not due to any fault with the car. It's the last of the line and one of the most entertaining. Being a one owner car for the past 13 plus years, it has been meticulously maintained and cared for.
The original bill of sale is also with the vehicle. You also get 19-inch cross-spoke forged alloys all around, a race-face steering wheel trimmed in Alcantara suede, and aluminum that at least looks lighter than wood. The odometer shows 164k miles. An interim notice was mailed to owners in September 2014. What's clear is that, after a few miles on the road, the Competition Package has honed and sharpened the regular M3's already fast responses; it's like a pro athlete, in the prime of his career, who's just found the perfect coach.
