For Sale: 2002 BMW M3 in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Atlanta is proud to present this 2002 BMW E46 M3 Convertible. The BMW M3 is a high-performance version of the BMW 3 Series, developed by BMW's 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. The initial model was available in a coupe body style, with a convertible body style added soon after. M3 Sedans were available during the E36 (1994-1999) and E90 (2008-2012) generations. Since 2014, the M3 has been solely produced in the sedan body style, due to the coupe and convertible models being rebranded as the 4 Series range. Upgrades over the regular 3 Series models include engines, handling, brakes, aerodynamics, lightweight materials and various interior upgrades. The M3 version of the E46 3 Series was produced in coupe and convertible body styles. The E46 M3 is powered by the S54 inline-six engine and has a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration time of 5.1 seconds for the coupe, with either the manual or SMG-II transmission. The skidpad cornering results are 0.89 g for the coupe and 0.81 g for the convertible. The top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph). The curb weight is 1,570 kg (3,461 lb). The 3.2 L (200 cu in) S54 engine is the final evolution of the BMW S50 naturally aspirated inline-six engine. The S54 is rated at 252 kW (343 PS; 338 hp) at 7,900 rpm, 365 N?m (269 lb?ft) at 4,900 rpm and has a redline of 8,000 rpm. As with most M engines, the S54 has individual throttle bodies for each cylinder, with electronic throttle control (drive-by-wire) operation of the throttles being a new feature for the S54. Backing this S54 engine is the SMG which stands for Sequential Manual Gearbox. It's essentially a transmission capable of functioning as an automatic or functioning as a manual transmission. The innovation is that, when functioning as an automatic, the driver does not need to operate a clutch pedal, simply designate desired gear. This is done by a traditional stick, or a set of paddle shifters attached to the steering column or steering wheel, depending on the model BMW. While automatic mode is more fuel efficient, manual mode provides greater engine performance while removing the human component and its capacity for error. This helps to ensure a longer life to the transmission and all its related parts.
