It was a great 19 years!







I had the pleasure of owning my E46 for 19 years (and being on this forum), but with a family of 6, it was finally time to let her go. She basically sat in the garage during the winter and only drove a few miles in the summer. Sold her off to a buddy that will take good care of her.

It's time to move on. I placed an order earlier this June and picked up my new baby last night. 2020 Lincoln Aviator Black Label. I hope this one will make me proud for another 19 years.




Take care my E46Fanatics!!

Take care Conrad. Your 323 was beautiful! Make sure to let your friend that ended up with it to join E46Fanatics so he can keep it as nice as you did.

Thanks. I do hope he takes care of it as much as I did. Paint was buttery smooth and pristine inside and out.

Never knew about this feature? Says you're member 37619. I'm 22995. Seems legit - if you look at various member's join date vs. their #, they seem to correspond.

Dang, I'm member #36 on Bimmerpost if this is legit.

Very nice.
I doubt they have a forum as good as this though!

If you click on his username and look at the URL it has the u=nnn parameter, which is the user number.

Damn, your 323 is gorgeous. Love that you kept the chrome.

Enjoy your new ride!

Congrats. No chance the aviator lasts 19 years, sorry but new cars are mostly garbage (including most new BMW's).

This forum is awesome. Made some great friends here. Many of them sold theirs before mine. In fact, I might be the last one to hold out this long.

I do realize the Aviator has a small chance of living as long as my E46 did. Here's to hoping for the best! Take care everyone!
