I was driving down the road in Rio Rancho, NM and I spotted this red 2002 BMW M3 on the side of the road for sale.  I decided to stop and take some photos and post it here in my Cars Freak profile as The Cool Car Guy. 

Let me stop right here though and tell you that I’m not selling this vehicle personally, but I’m listing it because it’s an iconic cool car.  Let me tell you a little bit about the 2002 BMW M3 and if you’re in the market for one you can contact the owner Drew who I called about it to get some details after I created a cool ad for it and took a few photos.

Let me give you a little bit of information about this car though and why I stopped to take some photos…

The 2002 BMW M3, came equipped with the esteemed E46 engine, which quickly became the object of adoration among true sports car aficionados upon its debut. This iteration is noted for its lean construction and the thrilling high-rev profile of its inline 6-cylinder engine, heralding a revival of the core attributes that defined the iconic BMW M3 E30.

In its arsenal, the M3 boasts a formidable 333 horsepower, enabling it to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just under 5 seconds. Coupled with either a refined 6-speed manual transmission or an avant-garde SMG (Sequential Manual Gearbox), it ensured an unparalleled driving experience for its time.

The addition of a convertible model offered drivers the luxury of open-top driving without compromising on sporty dynamics. With a top speed electronically limited to 155 mph, the 2002 M3 masterfully combines power, agility, and elegance, that set a new standard for high-performance vehicles.

And what appealed to me about this car as The Cool Car Guy is that this is a vehicle that was actually driven.  It’s hard to believe, but I believe that cars are made to be driven.  What a concept.  Anyway, if you’re interested in finding out more about this vehicle give the owner Drew a call and you may become the next driver of this cool ride.
