BMW E36 M3 3.0




Rare E36 M3 Saloon with the 3.0 litre straight-six engine producing 282 BHP, coupled with a five-speed manual gearbox.

Finished in Cosmos Black Metallic with full unmarked Lotus White Nappa/Buffalo leather extended to the lower dash, centre console & door cards. Along with walnut inlays across the dash, centre console, gear knob & handbrake.

This is a very high spec car with an electric slide / tilt sunroof, rear park distance control, dual zone climate control, on board digital computer, centre leather armrest, the original Pioneer KEH-P24RDS radio cassette player along with the original CDX-P22 six disc CD autochanger, even the original system 3T BMW approved alarm / immobiliser with all 3 keys & alarm fobs.

The 17″ ‘M Contour 5 spoke M3 alloys are all still unmarked & totally original having never needing refurbishment, sitting on matching Michelin Pilot Sport tyres.

The original ‘Bates Of Harold Wood’ BMW dealer number plates are still front & back along with the dealer sticker in the rear window.

There are 2 sets of perfect BMW carpet mats with 1 set unused still in the wrapper.

First registered to the supplying BMW Dealer ‘Bates Of Harold Wood’ on the 18th August 1995, before being driven out of the showroom by its only owner on the 19th November 1995 just over 25 years ago & has been in single private ownership ever since. All servicing and maintenance work required has been carried out from new by BMW main agents including the all important running-in service at 1249 miles.

Last serviced more recently at 34,489 miles in August 2020 by Sytner BMW of Maidenhead including a full inspection & vehicle health check.

Accompanying the vehicle are the original handbooks, the original stamped service book still in the BMW M3 leather wallet. We even have the original ‘Genuine Leather’ sample wallet housing the Nappa/Buffalo leather exclusively natural booklet.

There is a lever arch file of paperwork including copies of all MOT certificates from new, all previous registration documents & even a thank you letter from BMW following the initial purchase in November 1995.

Our local BMW main agent Chandlers of Hailsham have carried out the most recent MOT test in December 2020 which resulted in a clean pass with no advisories.

Finding a low mileage original & unmolested E36 M3 is becoming increasingly hard, and finding a single-owner car that still looks this good is virtually unheard of.
