E46 M3 Convertible
When thinking of German performance cars, the first three brands that come to most car guys minds are Porsche, Mercedes AMG, and BMW M cars. Being mentioned in an elite group like this from a country that builds so many spectacular cars doesn’t go unnoticed. All three names didn’t land here by mistake, especially the BMW M cars. Introduced in the 1970’s, the BMW M or “Motorsport” division was created to facilitate the company’s racing program. The M division quickly racked up wins all across the globe, gaining respect and a strong reputation in the motorsport community. By the late 1970’s, the M group launched their first streetcar, the M1. This mid-engine supercar was an absolute stunner, and further enhanced international interest in BMW’s performance division.
Fast forward to 1986, and the M group had fully gotten their hands around the lovable 3-series. Up until this point, the 3 series had been a solid 2-door sedan with sporty characteristics. After the 3 series was transformed into the M3, the sports car playing field was changed forever. The “E30” M3 became an instant classic with is striking looks, top shelf road performance, and domination of touring car racing. This success on and off the track continued through the 1990’s and into the 21st century. In 2000, the E46 M3 was launched, adding to the already strong and storied legacy of the performance oriented 3-series.
The E46 M3 came standard with a 3.2 liter inline-6 producing 333 horsepower. Backing the 6-cylinder was either a manual transmission or the SMG gearbox. The M3 not only was a significant performance upgrade to the standard 3 series, its looks were also beefed up. Some aesthetic differences included flared fenders, unique front and rear bumpers, different hood and mirror design, and 19” alloy wheels. Just like any other M car, the E46 M3 was a great performer, hitting 60 mph in 5.1 seconds and having a redline of 8,000 rpm!
