Win the modern classic e46 M3 + £2k with BOTB!

There are few cars loved by enthusiasts as much as the BMW M3.

The early e36 models have a keen following, but they're somewhat fragile now - see our videos with CarThrottle for proof - so the clever money is now in that car’s successor: the e46 M3.

Using a 3.2-litre straight-six engine with a lightweight crankshaft and graphite coated aluminium pistons, it revved to 8000rpm and put out 338bhp. Performance was brisk thanks to the 1450kg kerb weight, with 0-62mph taking just 5.1 seconds.

But the raw numbers only tell part of the story with the e46 M3 – the engine sings and screams its way through the rev range, there’s a delicious howl from the exhausts and the steering and handling are just sublime.

Add in the fact that there are four very usable seats, a big boot and (relatively) understated looks and you can see why the e46 M3 has such a huge following… 

The winner can choose an E46 M3 up to the value of £27,500. Win this modern classic with BOTB - it could be yours next Friday!
