E46 M3 SHOULD THE STEVEO BUY ONE WILL IT FIT IN HIS GARAGE
Previous | 123 | Next

Your car do the wing mirros totally fold in ?

Do you know how much wider the doors actually open compared to an E46 saloon please ?

Cheers

Coupe and convertible E46s (including the M3) had different mirror folding mechanisms to the saloon - they rotate upwards and look stupid. Though if you need them to fit in your garage, fair enough :D

That does look stupid I love it 8)

Makes it easier to check your hair when you've got out though.

Getting out is what this thread is concerned with.

Get one with folding rear seats, Steveo. Then you can do the boot exit thing.

I'm not as young as I once was Jobbo. I'd like to exit my vehicle in a more conventional manner henceforth.

I don't have swanky folding mirrors on mine - they do move ( the wrong way) but you have to push them hard by hand - the shame...

Doors are long, but they are frameless, so you could easily climb out with the window down, thus avoiding the sharp corner aimed at your heart, then press the lock button to put them up.

Thanks trying to avoid any acrobatics this time round though.

Anyone got any reliable sites for the dimensions of E36 and E46 M3's which isn't car folio.

Cheers

Steve

Auto Trader quote dimensions; they say 1780mm for the E46 M3 but it's not clear whether that includes mirrors. However, I have an E46 Touring brochure here which says 1739mm without mirrors and 1932mm with. I doubt the standard bodied coupe is notably different, and the M3 doesn't have wider mirror mounting points than standard.

On a related note, I was in my brothers 330d yesterday, its a lovely car, but the non-M mirrors are horrific! They look like Tupperware boxes!

I may ask the fine people of Pistonheads whether any of them park an M3 in a garage smaller than my own modest little affair.

Do they all have electic seats? Manually sliding seats mean you can slide them right back which makes getting out of longer coupe doors a lot easier.

Probably take forever if they're electric and like any oter electric seats I've used.

Sorry to hear that you're thinking of getting a BMW again, Steveo.

Fed up with being better than everyone else Marv.

Cheers

Hi Steveo, I have a lovely low mileage example of the rare and exclusive e36 m3 saloon in a fetching shade of blue with the correct ( non folding ) m3 wing mirrors for sale. Only £5995 to you.

Too many old sheds.

Cheers
