I’m toying with selling my own version of a perfect Clubsport / Euro-Ring trip E46 M3, simply because I don’t have the time to use it as much as id have originally hoped.

Its spent 90% of its life in the garage at home on a battery maintainer..

I bought the car three years ago from a fellow enthusiast after looking at several others, this was absolutely standard apart from a set of CSL reps, It had just had a lot of paintwork rectification and it was presented in immaculate condition. Being a facelift full spec car with low mileage. I had to have it. This car has surpassed my record of keeping cars for a few month and has remained with me for over three years now!

My initial idea was to have this as a nice weekend car that I could use and enjoy when the weather was nice... that didn't last long! I started watching a lot of Nurburgring videos and before I knew it the parts orders were flowing. My long term plan for the car was build a perfect ring tool but something that was just as capable at covering the long distance drive there and back. Over the next few years I set to work.

I've since unfortunately only done one Nurburgring trip where the car performed faultlessly! Being my first time there the car was way more capable than I was as a driver. I managed a couple of under 9 minute laps just taking it very easy getting to learn the car. The car is capable of a 7.30BTG with the right driver.

Everything on the car has only covered 1100 miles and its had a super easy life in a warm heated carpeted garage ever since! The R888 tyres are brand new with the bobbles on still! Brake pads are only 10% worn ect ect

Car has a full service history and has a mountains worth of receipts and documents.

It has been fully setup and corner weighted by Simon at QSP who is a ring setup guru, he has transformed the car and the way it drives. The turn in is like nothing I've felt before and it has a lovely balance, it truly is a extremely capable car!

Its a very genuine and honest clean car and not your usual rough track car! It still has digital TV tuner that works and is upto date along with a bit of the harmon kardon soundsytem in the front only. The paintwork has been ceramic two stage coated as have the wheels and the glass. I have never really used this car to what it was built for its still an immaculate example with a angry appearance!

For the price of the base car these days, a late low mileage, top spec, excellent condition m3 you are looking at £15,000
I've spent over double that on parts and labor alone getting the car to where it is today!

Its a jump in turn key, just add petrol track car with all the expensive bits sorted!

Only issue I have personally with the car is its quite loud with the decats and the front splitter doesn’t quite fit right to the front bumper, and the carbon wings don’t fit like the OEM wings did .. That's just me being very picky.

I have millions of pictures over the various stages of its life which you will see some below, please ask if you want more. It’s in fantastic condition the paintwork is near perfect.

I don't need to sell it its just an expensive asset to have sitting there doing nothing, However they are going up in value ....

I’ve never used this car in the rain! I know I’m sad.

Price is 22k
