2001 E46M3 SCHWARZ II
So the Mtax or S54 disease (whatever you want to call it) strikes again

One recurring pattern however is that all the cars I've bought from secunda have been beauts!

This is number 420 so she's an old model but man is she gorgeous.

Werner was kind enough to check the car out for me and also did the airbag campaign while I was away.

Upon collection I was pleasantly surprised to see my blind purchase was a strike of gold.

Having been in the family for over a decade the tlc and care is evident.

Ive since taken ownership and done valve clearances. Oil service was done before collection. Vanos is on order and will be doing them in due course. Oil pump disc will also go in eventually.

Oil level sensor/temp sensor is acting up so ordered a new one from bmw already.

I have the spare set of oem LED tail lights from the carbon black M3 so those will be going onto this car along with the oem wiring harnass adaptors.

Currently she's on 120xxx km and in for some TLC paint care with our trusted Spiro.

Tyres aren't correct profile. The are 40 and 35 profile. Should be 45 and 40. Will sort it out in due course once I have her back.
