2011 BMW (E90) M3 LCI
This 2011 BMW M3 sedan (E90) is a no-expense-spared example of the famed V8-powered E90 M3, presenting in a clean Alpine White colour combination. Under the bonnet is a naturally-aspirated 4.0-litre V8 engine which produces 309kW/400Nm. This power is sent to the rear wheels by a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The odometer of this car currently shows 96,329km.
Born from one of BMW’s golden eras, the E90 M3 quickly made a name for itself thanks to its sonorous naturally-aspirated V8 engine note and slick-shifting dual-clutch transmission. It also handled brilliantly, by perfectly executing BMW’s “Ultimate Driving Machine” period tagline promise. Its German muscle physique and general appointments both inside and out point to a serious sports sedan whether it’s parked at the local shops or on a race track. Sadly for BMW this will likely be the last time a naturally-aspirated engine features inside an M car, with successive generations adopting both turbocharged and electrified powertrains. It competes directly against the Audi RS4 and Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG, also V8 titans of their era.
This contrasting specification selects classic BMW colour Alpine White for the exterior over a black leather interior. This car is a facelifted LCI example which features newer iDrive infotainment and subtle visual tweaks over its earlier iterations. It is fitted with a sunroof option instead of the carbon-fibre roof panel. No aftermarket modifications are used in place of this car’s original specification. It rides on a set of 19-inch black alloy BMW M wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres.
Built new in Germany, this car was complied in Australia in March 2011 and was subsequently delivered new by Doncaster BMW, VIC in April 2011. It has had three owners since new, with the current owner taking possession just prior to coronavirus lockdowns. Since that time the car has seen little use. Most of its service history has been completed by BMW dealerships apart from some maintenance recorded at ALS Performance and SouthernBM. Its most recent major work was completed by SouthernBM in February 2022 which included throttle actuators, rod bearings, engine mount replacements, new gearbox seals, new cam cover gaskets, new battery, and one new Vanos unit. Normal issues normally seen on E9X M3s have been replaced on this vehicle, according to the seller.
In terms of presentation this car’s exterior shows in near-immaculate condition – especially taking into account its age and use. The Alpine White paint shows in clean condition without obvious marking, only some marks are observed on the right-hand-rear quarter panel and leading edge of the bumper. No curb rash is seen on any of the wheels and the tyres appear to retain decent tread.
The cabin shows in similarly clean order. Black leather upholstery can be seen clean and untarnished, while minimal signs of damage are identified on the carpeting. Some leather scuffing and marking is seen on aspects of the door cards and the driver’s seat displays crease marks, though all considered within the bounds of this car’s age and mileage. Slight scratching is seen on interior plastics surrounding the dash and steering wheel.
Service books and records from the current owner will be supplied with the car, as will two sets of keys.
