So long folks.

My 330ci was hauled off today on a solemn cold and rainy day. No worries, It was a pretty cool 45,000 miles and 3 years of e46 school. I'll still be lurking and following threads here as I start the new year with a clean slate and another BMW. Thanks to everyone here especially the resident gurus.
Happy Holidays,
Bill

Ps. In the event that the car gets fixed by a shop and put back into circulation,
The engine and drivetrain are absolutely mint. VIN.....WBABD53405PD99063

Sorry to see you go this way, Bill! Best of luck with the next stage.

So I guess there's no chance of getting another E46?

Ever since my first E46 was totaled more than five years ago (rearended by a Prius whose driver must have been texting on the freeway, there is no other possibe explanation), I'm constantly scared a distracted driver will just ram into my second one...

Thanks buddy, PM replied to.
In the meantime I'm being driven around in my wife's 15' 335i that we picked up last April, but there's no melted crayon smell and I'm already missing my old car.

That sucks man, sorry to hear another 46 is off the road.

Its Camry's up here w/ NJ plates....fckers are certifiable lunatics. They need to make the driving tests more challenging here, more like Finland.

Apparently garaged 10 years at home and work. I'm doing my own PPI and I'll know more later.

Looks super clean. Love how perfect the front bumper cover is.

Why did it take over a year to process the car ?

The incident did not take that long, I'm merely updating an old post. Tomorrow I'm showing up at the sellers with speed jacks, ramps, and my OBD scan tool. It's funny because I'm more fired up about getting back into an e46 than I was about the M3. Maybe it's the tinkering factor I miss.

Agreed. As much as I love the ZHP front end, I have a soft spot for the ZSP Aerodyne front end.
