2004 BMW M3 Convertible The BMW M3 is a high-performance version of the BMW 3 Series, developed by BMWs in-house motorsport division, BMW M GmbH. M3 models have been produced for every generation of 3 Series since the E30 M3 was introduced in 1986. Upgrades over the regular 3 Series models include engines, handling, brakes, aerodynamics, lightweight materials and various interior upgrades. For consignment, a 2004 BMW M3 convertible. It is shown in a somewhat rare Phoenix Yellow, black canvas top, and black leather interior. 19 inch G Craft Superstar wheels add to the look and there are just a few minor faults on the body, which remains in overall excellent condition. Exterior Phoenix Yellow bathes the all steel panels and neoprene bumpers which are body matching on this car. Gaps are well minded, and trimmings and badging are all in excellent condition. The car sports the aluminum trim package, xenon headlights, and a backup sensor system. The black canvas convertible top is electrically lowered and raised and works nearly perfectly. This top has a glass rear window, and when down, a black plastic tonneau covering. On the back just below the bumper we see dual dual exhaust on either side peeking out from the bottom of the rear roll pan. 19-inch G Craft Superstar wheels are wrapped by low profile Continental Extreme Contact tires. The drivers rim edge shows slight curbing, and a very small crease is seen on the passengers side fender lip. A casualty of a parking lot incident. Interior Black leather covers the inside of the passenger compartment which includes front racy smooth black leather buckets and a rear 2 plus 2 seat stretching across the back. The leather is in excellent condition and the buckets are power operated. A center console races through the buckets and up to the dash. Here we see a storage compartment, this lid doubles as an armrest for the front passengers. 2 cupholders and a small shifter is noted just prior to the rise to the dash. Also here are various toggles for different driving modes. As we move up to the dash front push button climate controls with a digital readout and a larger head unit screen is just above. This has the DVD stereo controls and a navi, but currently does not function. Fronting the simple curved dash with black faces and white numbers and red pointers is the sporty steering wheel which has various controls within the spokes of this wheel. In back of the wheel we note paddle shifters for the SMG, (sequential manual gearbox), transmission. This can also be done with the shift lever, or just put into full automatic for a worry and hands free cruise. Black carpeting is on the floors. A shout out to the trunk where a custom M cutout in the panel houses Xtant 10 inch subwoofers, 2 Rockford Fosgate amps, a 1.5 frat capacitor, crystal components, coaxial and Farenheit DVD 35. A system when installed costs $9,500.00! Drivetrain Under the hood is the factory 3.2 liter DOHC Inline 6 cylinder. It has EFI, and a 6-speed semi-automatic transmission SMG type. The rear axle weighs in at 3.64 gear ratio. Undercarriage Some upgrades for AC Schnitzer include a strut tower brace, and performance exhaust. All else is stock including independent coil sprung suspension on all 4 corners and power disc braking all around. Drive-Ability She fires right up and off like a flash to the test track. Here performance is over the top, braking solid, and it handles like its on rails. I noticed the check engine light is on, and as mentioned the head unit display is inoperable, disabling the navi and DVD screen. The stereo can pump out some serious Dbs An overall nice example with a color that grows on you, and plenty of sporty features, nice leather interior, electric convertible top, and M3 performance. Snappy 19-inch wheels and all I can say now is SCHNELL!!
