Agreed! I have the exact same setup but with different wheels, manual seats, and half the mileage . I bought mine for slightly more than that.

Not an E46 touring, I know. But I can't be the only one here who's also a fan of Audi wagons.

I'm also an Avant fan (though not nearly as much as of Tourings). But the auto sorta kills it for me for the typ-B8.

I'm a fan of looking at Audi wagons, but having worked on them for other people and seeing the bills for parts has long ago cured me of any desire of ownership!

Same. Particularly when I've test driven ones with around 100k, with lots of rattles and buzzes and then gotten back into my BMW with way more milage that is solid and quiet.

Agreed with you and Vick. See my comments in my "build thread" from when my wife was borrowing a friends A4 Avant. Just not quite up to the level of the e46 on the interior.

My wife drives an Avant, but whenever she drives my E46 she mentions that she likes it much better. I agree.

I was never a brand-loyal person, but I plan to get her a BMW wagon when it comes time to get rid of the Audi.

Although, I can't complain about the cost of ownership of either car. The Audi is over 150k miles now and after few years of ownership, I haven't had any issues.

This looks awesome. Ticks all of my boxes, but being on the opposite side of the country is a bit of a downer.

I texted him to ask for the VIN and he shared it.
WBAEN33463PC11335

Vin confirms it was an Auto from factory and it had factory sports options too

I don't see any mention about the MTech 1 in Mdecoder though

Mtech 1 wasn't available on wagons. I guess technically it wasn't available on the 325, at least in the United States, although I don't think it was available on EU wagons either because I don't think the rear Mtech 1 bumper exists for wagons.. 5 speed swap makes the recent clutch make more sense

That makes sense, but I always enjoy running the vin to see the original build.

For all I know there might be a custom-ordered, Euro-delivered MTech wagon out there.
