    Hi, Thrilled to have found this forum - dedicted just to the E46! I love the styling of the E46 and have been a regular on autotrader for a while looking for one. There is one for sale now in my favorite color (black) for 5,250! It's an '02 model, auto, with 165,000 miles - a lot - and with 5...

    Little background...22 years old, new to forum, huge driving enthusiast, never owned a BMW, looking to buy a 325Ci. Simple. I currently own a Ford explorer and I hate it, it's a lemon but I've done a few repairs to make it manageable, but by no means is it a pleasure to drive. (For a driving...

    Hey guys I often see members selling or parting out their E46's and sometimes they look like they're in perfect condition. Today I saw a similar post from a member who seems pretty new and not many previous posts. We PM'd each other but he doesn't do paypal he wanted a money order or a prepaid...

    I'm thinking of hiring a dealer/broker to find that perfect 2003-2005 E46 at wholesale price + commission. Has anyone ever gone this route before? Any experiences? One dealer told me all the good cars in that year range are being sold at retail on someone's lot, and all the rotten/problem ones...

    I'm a fifteen year old, about to be sixteen, looking for my first car. I love Bimmers, so naturally that's pretty much all that I'm looking at. I recently found a 1999 328i sedan (5spd manual, 160k) for $5k obo on craigslist. I haven't gone to look at it yet, but I'm planning on going this...

    OK guys, so I`m looking at the E46 models around 2000-2002. I want it to be a 4 door sedan. I`m not yet sure wheather to buy diesel or petrol car. As far as I know diesels are much more expensive to repair if something goes wrong, which is likely to happen with a secondhand vehicle. I`ll be...

    Right now I'm shopping for an e46, but I only plan on keeping it for about 2 years... What's a good mileage to buy at so that I can avoid major maintenance? Or maybe I should ask: at what mileage(s) can I expect to invest large amounts of money into the car?... Assuming all maintenance has been...
