FS: 2003 E46 M3 (NASA TT3 Prepared)

Recommended Posts

Asking $35,000

I will get some more pics up soon.  I just grabbed a few on my phone.  Here's a walk around of the car.  https://youtu.be/Y3w5PydIRjs


Car is located in Gonzales, Louisiana.

Please feel free to PM me with any questions.

I plan to also list it on the Texas FB For Sale Page.

I am selling my 2003 BMW M3 (9/2002 Build Date).  I bought this car in 2012 in Chicago with about 23,000 miles.  It was originally track prepped by Fall Line.  The car now has 55,000 miles, 90% of it track miles.  It has always been stored in the garage.

The car is not street legal.  It is strictly an HPDE/TT car that needs to be towed to the track.  My tow rig will also be up for sale if you're interested.  The car would need a full cage and a few other things to race wheel to wheel.  I have campaigned it since 2013 in NASA Time Trial Series, finishing 1st or 2nd in the Texas region in almost every year, including the TT3 National Championship in 2019 at Mid Ohio. 

Did I mention that this is a track car?  It is in generally good shape but it has the wear and tear that you might expect in a track car.  It has never been in an on track incident.  I am a pretty conservative driver and spend 99.9% of my time on the track surface.  I did get some bumper damage on the way to the track once but that was all repaired under insurance.  

The car weighs 2850 pounds with full tank of gas and no driver.

The car is extremely well set-up and holds NASA TT3 track records at Lime Rock Park (56.8), VIR (1:58), ECR (2:01), Hallett (1:20), and NOLA (1:48).  Other significant lap times:  WGI (1:59), Barber (1:34), COTA (2:27), TWS (1:47), MSRH CW (1:38), Mid Ohio Pro (1:31), Road Atlanta (1:32).

I had to join this site just to say this is a smoking deal!  

Also never realized you run 245/40/18 A7's, curious as to why vs. say 275/35.

275 on a 9.5 wheel won’t clear the 266 tread width template for the 0.6 p/w modifier. To run 275 he would have to take a weight or power penalty.
