2010 BMW (E90) M3


  • An elegant example of the potent performance saloon, finished in a tasteful colour combination and with an impressive factory specification.
  • Under the bonnet sits a 4.0-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine, sending 414bhp to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with paddle shift.
  • The last of the naturally aspirated M3s with only two former keepers, this 2010 model benefits from the ‘LCI’ upgrades, which include LED taillights and updated interior trim.


  • This M3 is finished in Silverstone II metallic over a matching Novillo Palladium Silver leather interior. 
  • It rides on its original 19-inch diamond cut alloy wheels, shod with Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres.
  • The factory specification includes cruise control, automatic xenon headlights, front and rear parking sensors, a multifunction steering wheel with ‘M’ tricolour stitching, and a widescreen iDrive infotainment system complete with satellite navigation.
  • The car is accompanied by the full owner’s book pack stating the supplying dealer details as Ocean BMW Falmouth, various servicing and MOT invoices, an email from BMW Barretts Canterbury confirming the running-in service history and other services carried out by Ocean BMW Falmouth, the original toolkit, BMW touch-up stick, and two keys.
  • The cherished registration ‘K55 EDF’ is not included, and the car will revert to the age-related number plate ‘GX59 SVN’.

All chips have been touched in with the official BMW paint stick, which accompanies the vehicle.
  • The owner states that the nearside rear wheel has starting to display some discolouration to its diamond-cut face and would now benefit from refurbishment. All four wheels were refurbished approximately two years ago.
