Not sure of the exact number of them built, but they come on the market from time to time; at least it certainly won't take you years to locate one. I'm also a fan of that color on the E46 M3.

AutoTrader.com is a good source to watch; also Enthusiast Auto seems to have a good reputation and gets Laguna Seca Blue E46 M3's in from time to time. Enthusiast Auto might even be able to help you locate one if you contact them directly and tell them what you're searching for; they might have resources for locating specific vehicles that would not otherwise be available to an individual like you or me.

Of course, if they (or any other specialty dealer) go to all the trouble of finding one for you, the expectation is you will buy it from them as well... So it might put you at something of a disadvantage in negotiating price unless you specify up front what you're willing to pay...

Good luck!
