The new BMW M3 and M4 duo might be a ball to drive, yet many enthusiasts haven’t taken all that well to their styling. Fortunately, there are many alternatives, and one comes in the form of this E92-generation M3.
This is a 2008 model that was first delivered to BMW Northwest in Tacoma, Washington and has passed through the hands of two owners before being acquired by the selling dealer. It has 11,000 miles on the clock and is being auctioned off on Bring A Trailer with service records, factory manuals, a window sticker, clean Carfax report, and a clean Arizona title.
The exterior is painted in Melbourne Red Metallic and sits on optional 19-inch ‘Style 220’ alloys wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ tires measuring 245/35 at the front and 265/35 at the rear. It also includes Electronic Damper Control as well as cross-drilled brake discs measuring 14.2 inches at the front and 13.8 inches at the rear.
The cabin is clad in black Novillo leather with Sycamore Anthracite accents on the dashboard and door panels. Among the key features are heated and power-adjustable front seats, the Enhanced Premium Sound system with HD radio, navigation, and a powered rear sunshade.
Slotted beneath the hood is a 4.0-liter naturally aspirated S65 V8 with 414 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. While the E92 M3 was available with a six-speed manual, this example has the Getrag seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and a Variable M Differential Lock.
