318i se touring shell (135k miles shell)... still 2.0litre engine on V52003 S54 3.2 m3 engineGetrag 6 speed manual box running royal purple fluids.Engine on 92630 miles, original m3 clocks in car.Shell was on 125k miles when engine was fitted in 2012 at great cost by a company down south (i cant remember who, but its not the usual bodge job conversion). At this time the engine was on 85k miles, so has only done 8000miles in last 5 years as it had been used as a weekend play toy prior to me owning it in 2015.AC part removed by previous keeper, only heavy condensing unit remains and has to be unbolted and removed...Although the car started life as an SE spec, it has everything on it now you would find on a top spec m-sport touring plus alot more!MOT until 18.08.2017.
Interior-------When i got car it was completely bare, and only had roll cage and harnesses. Since then ive fitted a full and very clean interior... including isofix points for baby seats!Black dashBlack carpetBlack leather door cardsBlack leather rear folding seatsGloss black sport trimEvo 8 mr recaro front seat & recaro railsM-tec sport black headlining packM3 clocksM3 steering wheelM-sport sill kick plate coversBlack luggage cover and dog boot gaurd
Exterior--------M-sport front bumperM-tec sport gloss black pillar trimsM-sport rear bumperCustom front crash barRolled and flaired front and rear archesGloss black 2k paint freshly resprayed, and rebuilt in last month using new bonnet, bumpers, skirts, headlights, indicators and windscreen, so everythings fresh.
Chassis--------M3 subframes front and rearM3 lower front chassis braceM3 front lower arms, hubs, track rod endsIt M3 rear trailing arms and hubsPurple tag steering rackTurner motorsport 3:91 m3 lsd (cost over £2k!)Poly bushed rear subframePoly bushed rear trailing armsPoly bushed front wishbonesPlated and welded rear subframe mount pointsMSR coiloversMSR adjustable front top mountsTurner motorsport rear asjustable camber arms
Engine-------3.2 s54 E46 m3 engine and cooling systemBmc panel filterHack engineering vanos accumulator lineRemapped and raised rev limitViscous fan and addidtional twin eletric fansTTV super light flywheelSachs paddle clutchNo power printout to prove power, but a stock m3 makes 343bhp, and this is modified and with flywheel and diff gearing, this thing blows the doors off a stock m3...

Bad points -----------*Stock stereo & speakers are rubbish*Only one key, and needs battery for remote locking.*Not much history with car as previous owner gave me none, ive gave it two oil changes in last year, and will come with fresh oil and filters*car was originally red... resprayed gloss super black including all shuts, and behind fuel flap, however engine bays just been satin blacked with a rattle can. Looks fine tho, as u can see from picture...*Ive spent last year trying to find transmission noise (sounds like an annoying rattle); changed gearboxes, spiggot and release bearings, fluids, and its still there... after many hours and head scratching it appears that its the lightened solid mass flywheel and solid unsprung paddle clutch causing this issue. So only way to fix this minor issue is to refit the heavy stock dual mass flywheel and clutch... however in my opinion the acceleration gains u recieve from current setup, far out weighs the minor transmisson noise this setup causes... google lightened flywheel transmisson noise for more information...
I have used this car daily since December 2015, without any issues, and its been an amazing all round car. Huge boot, 5 seats, and blistering quick. Ive also consistently averaged 29mpg commuting, and much more on a longer motorway journey... it really is breaking my heart to sell it, but i need cash for house extension, so it must go.
From a daily driver point of view, ive driven it every day without issue, and have carried my new born son in it. However please be aware it is a modified m3 under the practical body. Heavy clutch pedal, aggressive clutch engagement, stiff suspension & chassis, no AC, aggressive LSD, and flywheel chatter as mentioned above. Dont expect it to be as comfy as a bog standard E46 estate! Ha
With regards price... last m3touring i seen for sale (they are rare and only know of a handful thats been built in country) sold within a few days on ebay for £7200! It only had engine conversion on an SE platform, and none of the supporting m3 suspension, brakes, or modifications... if u think £8k is too much for an old E46 estate, dont buy it and build your own (but i assure you it will cost alot more than im asking to build one to this standard).
Please save me from any stupid questions, and low ball offers. If u wanna make an offer at least come and see the car, and ul see its worth every penny of asking price, and more if i was to break it (which im not). I appreciate a young driver could easily insure this, but this is a serious handful to drive with its power, has no traction control aids, and is not for an inexperinced rwd driver.
Cheers. Call me on 07743450261. No swaps
