BMW 3 Series (E46)

The BMW E46 is the fourth generation of the BMW 3 Series, which was produced from 1997 to 2006. The body styles of the range are:
4-door sedan/saloon
2-door coupe
5-door wagon/estate marketed as "Touring"
2-door convertible
3-door hatchback see BMW 3 Series Compact
All-wheel drive, last available in the E30 3 Series, was reintroduced for the E46 on the 325xi, 330xi and 330xd models. The E46 was the first 3 Series to be available with an engine using Valvetronic variable valve lift. Various electronic features were also introduced to the 3 Series in the E46 generation, including satellite navigation, electronic brake-force distribution, rain-sensing wipers and LED tail-lights.
Following the introduction of the E90 3 Series sedans in late 2004, the E46 began to be phased out. However the E46 coupe and convertible body styles remained in production until 2006.
The E46 M3 is powered by the S54 straight-six engine with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed SMG-II automated manual transmission. The M3 was introduced in late 2000 and was produced in coupe and convertible body styles only.

1. Development
In 1993, the development programme for the E46 began under chief engineer Wolfgang Ziebart and head of RD Wolfgang Reitzle. In late 1993, design work began under chief designer Chris Bangle and continued into 1995. In May 1995, the general exterior design of the E46 by Erik Goplen of DesignworksUSA was approved and as a result DesignworksUSA was contracted by BMW to work alongside BMW Groups in-house design team to create the exterior body work for the 3 Series range in February 1996. The design team put an emphasis on improving aerodynamics and increasing the cars aggressive stance. Design patents were filed in Germany on 16 July 1997 and in the US on 16 January 1998.
Chris Bangle and Dr. Wolfgang Reitzle BMW Head of RD were responsible through 1995 for the production sedans exterior, as evident in the 1997 design patent. Production development of the sedan took 24 months following design freeze and was 31 months from executive board styling approval in 1995 to its start of series production in December 1997. Erik Goplen designed the production coupe, convertible and station wagon during 1996–1997. The E46 sedan was unveiled via press release on 11 November 1997 and was launched on the market at the end of April 1998 with customer deliveries.

3. Chassis
The body shell of the E46 was claimed by BMW to be 70% more rigid than its E36 predecessor. Aluminium was used for an increased quantity of suspension components, in order to decrease unsprung mass. However, with a curb weight of 1.450 kg 3.197 lb, the E46 328ci is 55 kg 121 lb heavier than the E36 equivalent.
In tune with BMWs core values regarding handling dynamics, the E46 was initially available with a rear-wheel drive layout and a 50/50 weight distribution.

4. Electronics
The electronic components in the E46 are more integrated than previous generations of 3 Series, including the use of a CAN bus system. Drivetrain information such as engine, transmission and stability control is communicated using the CAN bus. Vehicle electronics can communicate to each other via the K-bus.

5. M3 model
The E46 M3, first introduced in October 2000, was available with the 3.2-litre S54 M-tuned engine. It was available in coupe and convertible body styles.
The M3s S54 engine has a redline of 8.000 rpm. As with most M engines, the S54 has 6 individual throttle bodies, in this case electronically operated drive-by-wire throttle. The transmission options for the M3 were a 6-speed manual or the 6-speed "SMG-II" automated manual transmission.

6.1. Special models Performance package ZHP
The Performance Package was an option sold in North America, which is commonly referred to by its order code in the United States, ZHP the order code in Canada was ZAM. It was available for 330i sedans from model years 2003 to 2005, and available for 330ci coupes and convertibles from 2004 to 2006. It included various aesthetic changes over the regular 3 series, as well as functional and mechanical enhancements.
The ZHP was equipped with sportier camshafts and revised engine tuning to increase power output from 168–175 kW 225–235 hp to as well as a shorter final drive gear ratio, and a corresponding increase in redline from 6.500 rpm to 6.800 rpm. Suspension was modified over the standard suspension with firmer springs and dampers, larger anti-roll bars, stronger front control arm ball joints, a lower ride height, heavy duty steering rack, and slightly more negative camber. Car and Driver magazine track-tested the car, which recorded a 0–60 mph 97 km/h acceleration time of 5.6 seconds and a 1/4 mile time of 14.3 seconds.

6.2. Special models 325i SULEV
BMW introduced a super ultra low emission vehicle SULEV into the selected regions of the United States to meet stricter emission standards. California, New York, and Massachusetts received the SULEV E46s in 2003, and Vermont in 2004. They utilised a variant of the M54 engine named the BMW M56. The M56 meets SULEV standards, as well as partial zero emission vehicle PZEV and zero evaporative emissions requirements. The M56 is claimed to have identical power output as its M54 counterpart.

6.3. Special models M3 GTR road car
In order for the M3 GTR race car to compete in the American Le Mans Series, BMW produced 10 examples of the "M3 GTR StraSen Version" street version in 2001. As per the race M3 GTR, the roadgoing Version was powered by the BMW P60B40 4.0 L V8 engine which was slightly detuned and generated a maximum power output of 283 kW 380 hp at 7.000 rpm. Power was delivered to the rear wheels via a race type 6-speed dual clutch sequential transmission with M locking differential. The engine featured dry sump lubrication as its racing counterpart and bigger radiators.
The stiffer chassis and suspension system were a carryover from the race version. The car was lowered further than a standard M3 and featured additional strut braces between the firewall and strut towers as well as between the right shock towers. The redesigned front and rear fascias and the rear wing optimised aerodynamics.
The roof, the hood, the rear wing and front and rear fascias were made from carbon-fibre in order to reduce weight. Notable changes made to the interior included leather Recaro bucket seats, removal of rear seats and special M3 GTR sill plates.
