A beautiful , Original and pampered example that has been brought out on sunny days to enjoy.

Finished in the most desirable colour combination, This M3 Evolution has been pampered and loved.


Not for shy, retiring types, If you are going to buy an M3 Convertible then you may as well get the best & brightest colour and boy does this car suit its stunning Dakar yellow with black Full leather interior colour combination.

The Dakar Yellow paintwork glistens in the sun like a field full of sunflowers, It is as immaculate as it appears on the photos and is not faded at all, there are no areas of concern and she has clearly led an easy life. A bit like the well kept lady of a very rich husband, she has been treated well, Has had anything in life she has ever wanted and been been treated with respect and love.

If you are lucky enough to take this lady out for the evening she will make your friends jealous and rewards you in ways you just do not get with a normal mundane car.

She will put more mundane ladys to shame.

She is a thing of beauty....and she oozes class and sophistication.


You sit inside her and she cossets you with her beautiful High quality & sumptious soft Nappa Leather finished in Black to compliment the Dakar Yellow Paintwork.

Does she have Wood? Yes she does, she`s been treat to the finest quality Bur Walnut to make her feel as luxurious as possible.

Rejoice, there is an onboard computer fitted to this car.

It does cascade a miriad of information but we think your eyes are better served on the road as this is one car wereby you can cover some ground in not too short a time.

The support bolsters on the seats are in fantastic order and remain firm on the upper and lower sections.

Overall an an interior of absolute comfort and luxury, but ready to hold you in place when the roads are ready to play.


Everyone buys an M3 because they have the best engines in the world, The 6 Cylinder 3201cc unit fitted to this car pumps out a solid and eye opening 321 BHP. With Torque that could uproot a 200 year old tree this car will put a huge smile on your face.

Then you listen to the howl of the vanos system which works perfectly in this car and to listen to a 6 Cylinder BMW M3 engine at full chat is like listening to the best symphony through expensive headphones.

Because this car has been a pampered and loved example the oil is as clear as freshly squeezed apple juice and she ticks over and runs beautifully.

Her clutch and plate were changed only 8000 miles ago so her gearbox selects the ratios with no drama no fuss.


Tight as a drum, this lady flows along a country road as if there isn`t a road beneath her wheels.

She is ready to hitch up her skirt , throw off her high heels and blast you down that country road with all the poise and sophistication of a REAL performance machine.

She reacts beautifully to what you tell her and does everything you ask of her.

She is your reliable and unflappable personal driving assistant

She is not bangy or crashy she is from an age were cars were more about driving and less about EU rules that dictate what size glass the door mirrors have to be etc.


This has 4 Excellent Tyres on standard and in excellent condition M3 17" Alloys 7.5" wide fronts and 8.5" rears.

Front drivers = 5mm

Front passenger = 5mm

Rear Drivers = 4mm

Rear Passenger = 4mm

The ABS brakes are working perfectly they do not grab or flutter.

These are powerful and precise and will never disappoint when you need to summon up all of her stopping power.

She brakes true and in a straight line and will help your confidence when pressing on.


She has Climate control, Electric windows all round and an electric roof, Does she really need any extras, not really but even so she does have a few little extra touches such as the Bur Walnut trim, A Sony face Off CD player and a fitted Tracker, This is a lady you trust not to run off with someone who takes her fancy.

Just one thing we have to repeat time and time again.....


Did we just say OH THE NOISE....

What a wonderful thing to drive, This car is not a wolf in sheeps clothing, Nor is it a sheep in wolfs clothing, it is neither of these yet it is all of them, in fact this wondeful car has the heart of a lion and yet the deftness of a mouse. She can be anything you want her to be.

She plays at being a sports car, a luxury cruiser, a wind in the hair convertible, a practical shopping car. Anything you choose.

She is comfortable and luxurious, she is Sumptious and High Quality, She is relaxing and steady, but open her up.......

She is now tenacious, a Rip snorting attack on the senses and a bucking & riving drivers car that will teach you the art of driving a Machine.

She is more than just the some of her parts, She is highly desirable and sought after.

She is ICONIC......


Every girl has a history, a story to tell ,some better than others, This is an unsullied lady with plenty of sophistication, to be part of her future your going to have to treat her with respect.

She has been pampered from new and because she is very rare, she is worth looking after.

A total of 12114 M3 Evolution convertibles were produced between February 1996 and December 1999.

manuals accounted for just 2107 slots of the production line and of these only 267 were produced in Dakar Yellow.

So she is a rare old bird, but dont call her old to her face.

She feels young because she has been serviced at ;












Having now done 104,000 miles She has a portfolio of service records, reciepts and old mot`s and is HPI clear having never been stolen written off or accident damaged.


At £250 per year it is not a lot to pay when you consider how much fun you will be having and insurance can be had for less than £150 per year

A fresh MOT will be added to the car before sale for complete peace of mind.
