    Phoenix Yellow M3

    So just how rare would you say this color is? I found a 2002 coupe with 78,000 miles on it.

    there are not a lot out there, but I would not call it rare. What is the history / asking price of this vehicle?

    PY is not rare. It was one of only two introduction colors - so early buyers didn't have a lot of choices.

    Asking price is $17,950. Oh and I'm a bit new to the bmw scene, but I've always wanted an e46 m3 so badly.

    That's probably not a bad price, if there is documentation for the services.

    Phoenix Yellow production numbers

    I just had mine totaled by a car wash. Surreal and still a blur! Anyway, I did research through BMW AG so I could set a value with the insurance company. I learned that in 2002 only 114 units were produced. With mine in a twisted pile means there are only 113! I did not check on '03 production run but I was originally told only 300 total were produced of the E46 in PY. Brian

    Yeah, it has all service records and clean title. Only problem is need to sell my car first. It also has the cinnamon nappa interior,navigation, and SMG tranny.

    It also has SMG on it, so I'm thinking it might be bad if i have this a month and get a $1500 pump repair like that. But then again, this car is at a BMW dealer so I hope they took a look at the pump.

    Unless it is obviously failing, they will have done nothing with the pump.

    Yup that's the one. That salesman really needs to stop e-mailing me about it then.

    And what color is yours, if I might ask? Silver, perhaps? If so, that would be the same color as my first car, an 86 Nissan Sentra. Nice comparison, eh? And welcome to the forum!

    Speaking of PY's, anyone got some large pics of them? Like 1200x800 or larger. Looking for a new background. Great color IMO, definitely not too common nowadays
