Description

ONLY E46 M3 ON TURO ON THE EAST COAST (I think...) When people come to rent my Mustang Shelby GT350 (see other listings), almost everyone who comes by says, “Is that your E46 M3? Wish I could rent that too!” Car enthusiasts know this car — even now, people say the E46 M3 from 2002-2006 is the best M3 BMW has ever made. It’s a blast to drive! A real driver’s car. A few little quirks, but a blast on the open road. An affordable, fun, unique multi-day rental option. I got special permission from Turo to list this E46 even though you normally can’t list cars more than 12 years old. If you have dreamed about driving this car, or you have been thinking about investing in a used one, please come take mine for a spin! You can look up the main features of this model online. Here are some things to know about this car: (1) SMG transmission, not manual, but one of the first cars ever with paddle shifters and really fun on the open road; (2) Pioneer head unit installed, better speakers, trunk subwoofer, Apple Car Play, and a rear camera, so a bit more modern and a good sound system for an older car; (3) cold air intake installed for a modest HP boost; (4) upgraded suspension; and (5) titanium exhaust which cuts 40 pounds. The car has good all-season tires, so it’s good for any weather except a big snowstorm. Many car experts think the E46 M3 was the pinnacle of the M cars. Please come try mine and you won't be disappointed! Please return the car clean and well-loved. It's my favorite. Like with my other cars, I want people to have fun, but please remember it’s not your car. I have trackers installed to monitor excessive speed and aggressive behavior. My E46 is certainly meant to be driven and it is well-maintained, but it's not meant to be a race car. These cars are becoming classics!

Faqs

  • What are the key things to know about this car and the SMG transmission?

    Here are the key things to understand. This car behaves lake a manual transmission car even though it's automatic, meaning it could roll on a hill coming off the brake, and it doesn't have P for park, that kind of thing. To park, you leave it in gear, turn off the car, and life the hand brake. To start it, shift the gear lever back to neutral before putting the key in. To toggle between manual mode (paddle shifters) and automatic, you push the gear lever to the right. When a small "D" appears next to the gear number you're in, the car is shifting on its own.

Jeff’s M3 is one of the most unique awesome cars to drive on Turo. I had a blast with it. It ferocious and the performance is amazing. Fast and just a really cool car to drive. Great sound and sound system. Even has Apple play. Absolutely love the car. Jeff is one of the best hosts in DMV area. Highly recommend.

Beautiful car, incredible sound, but not too loud. Jeff is quick to respond and friendly, and has several other cars that I'd love to try next! Once you get used to it the SMG is a quite a bit of fun actually. I learned that very briefly letting off the throttle as you upshift helps for a smoother shift, just like if it were a manual. On the other hand, downshifting while approaching a red light or just slowing down is smoother if you give a tiny blip of throttle every shift. It also sounds quite a bit nicer. Comfortable seats and apple car play too, what more could you ask for? This car feels so guttaral, it's hard to not have fun in it. Don't do anything stupid in it though, because Walter does have a tracker! But also don't drive like your grandma would. Thanks Jeff for letting me drive my childhood dream car!

I can easily see why Jeff is an all-star host. He is very professional and meticulous about his vehicles. Easy pick-up,, good communication, and a great person to deal with. Thanks again for a great, first Turo rental experience. I hope to try one of your other great cars soon!
