The most rare option in this car is the option S6UHA - Traffic Information. It was installed on 469 out of 5,442 cars.
Awesome, thank you so much! If it isn't too much trouble, could you tell me how many of these were optioned with the sport package (ZSP)?

Thanks again

This breakdown of LSB cars is awesome and not previously seen before. Thank you!!!

Are you able to give a breakdown by year of the LSB e46 m3s that were built for the NA market with G8AT (impuls) cloth interior? This will tell me how rare (or not) my 04 LSB/Impuls is.

So tried to do some digging on my own after you me gave great information thanks again! I ran the vin through mdecoder so it has S464A ski bag. Also it came up as a IS convertible? The car came with factory m3 bumpers, side skirts and factory xbrace right off the dealership show room floor.Do you think this was a factory order that customer never picked up or was it built that way from the bmw factory? Your thoughts would greatly appreciated.

All M44 powered 318 are actually "is", but not how they were marketed in the US and Canada.

It did not. Someone installed them at some point.

Hey Sickfinga! I have done my best to compile the e46 M3 coupe info for Laguna Seca Blue cars, based on your prior posts.

Looks like there were 1,128 LSB coupes produced for the NA market. Adding the numbers you posted for Black (343), Grey (668), Cinnamon (19), Impuls Cloth (53) and LSB interior (42), I arrive at a total of 1,125. It appears 3 are missing and unaccounted for.

Are you able to see what the other 3 coupes had inside? Kiwi? Leather-to-Sample? M-Tex??

As always, thanks in advance. You are a legend.

I've honestly been trying to find one of the very last manual transmission F31s with the M-Sport package in Canada and they're like unicorns. Had to settle for an automatic transmission and just wondering how rare this baby is: K752641

Hi SickFinga, I have a two-parter for you:

First is (ED23280)

This will be cirrus/indigo cloth, the color combination of my first car.

Second: (1930316)
this will be Bronzit/Pearlbeige convertible, my current E30.

What is your personal favorite color combination on the E46 M3? A canadian manual PYM/KIWI just popped up for sale, which I am very seriously considering and would love (1 of 19 CAN Man cars), for export to US (Unless you can dredge up one of the two US Manual car VINs!)

Thank you very much, I wish I had the access that you have, the inner BMW in me is losing it.
