AC Schnitzer was founded by Willi Kohl and Herbert Schnitzer in 1987, and over the years has enjoyed a very close relationship with BMW, both in motorsport where they have won many major titles together, but also as a supporter of BMW’s production vehicles, owning a BMW dealership as well as providing quality tuning products for the BMW range via their tuning arm AC Schnitzer. The AC Schnitzer ACS3 C30 was adapted from the E46 BMW 330 as a manufacturer-approved conversion, which was also offered in the period by BMW as an option in its sales brochures. Boasting a selection of specially developed AC Schnitzer components including suspension, brakes, exhaust system, wheels, body styling, interior trim, and a centrifugal supercharger unit, it increased the power over its naturally aspirated relation to approximately 297bhp.
Manufactured in 2003, the Schnitzer offered was registered new on the 29th of September 2003, being supplied through Damon Hill BMW of Warwick who fitted the AC Schnitzer upgrades when new. The kit consisted of the ACS supercharger, uprated carbon fibre intake system, and performance exhaust system raising the power from 228 bhp to 295 bhp and an increase of 59 lb ft of torque making this the ultimate ‘sleeper’ car. Being based on an M sport car, ‘VK53 UOB’ comes with all the usual M sport refinements such as sports suspension, full black heated leather sports seats, sports steering wheel, Harmon Kardon sound system, Sat Nav, and all M sport kick plates and is finished in the menacing colour combination of Black Sapphire metallic paintwork with Black leather interior upholstery.
Registered new to the supplying dealer, the Schnitzer was acquired by the current registered keeper in 2008 and has two former keepers, equating to two private owners from new, and has covered a modest 103,000 miles. Supplied with a history file that includes the original book pack with stamped service book, previous invoices, a selection of previous MOT certificates, and a current V5C document. The service history is documented across the service book and accompanying invoices with twelve services and the PDI inspection documented with eight of these being with BMW main dealers.
