    Hi all, Finally at a point where I am able to purchase the dream car - E46:evil:, was hoping to get some help/advice around the specific model to purchase and general information on prices, they seem to be incredible varied! Important to note: I do not expect to sell/trade car at any time...

    I'm considering to get a high mileage (240K) 2002 330i. I personally know the owner and the car is very well maintained. Unfortunatly it is an automatic and the trasmission was rebuilt a year ago by the dealer for a whopping 5K. I test drove the car and already fell in love with her. Is it worth...

    I have a 2000 323ci and I have only had it for like a month and the last owner had just changed the oil but all I know is that this thing takes synthetic oil, ( I read on the forums that 0w-40 would be the best price wise) but any way, I see that it says I can go 15,500 miles till my next oil...

    So we got my car 3.5 years and 10,000 miles ago. I've already put in about 4k from fixing things and adding new things. I'm planning on a MINIMUM of about 6k more. Is that a bad idea? I love my car. I want to make it better, and I love doing stuff myself...it's my crack :rofl::woot: It's got...

    I got my M3 with 80k on it and according to the previous owner, the plugs have not been changed. What is the typical mileage when there's benefit to replacement? I've checked and found no posts on this subject but know that plugs on 'newer' cars are typically intended to not need replacement...

    The automatic transmission on most BMWs is said to have lifetime fluid... we here at ECS as well as many transmission manufactures recommend service every 30k miles. Over the life of a vehicle, the transmission can often be overlooked when performing routine maintenance. If left unserviced...

    I found a 2002 BMW 325xiT wagon on craigslist.org. It seems like a good price. They listed a ton of awesome qualities. The only problem is that it has 216k miles on it. They are asking $4,975 and I wonder if the car is going to last with so many miles on it. Let me know if I'm going to be buying...

    Hey guys, I'm about to purchase a second hand 2000 BMW e46 320D European version. I found a good car and I was so ready to buy it, when I saw that the tamper dot right next to the mileage. From what I read about it, it means that there's been an odometer rollback since the dot is on. However...

    325Xi, 2004, 72K. My mileage has dropped from around 18.5 mpg city to just under 12 with this cold weather. Highway mileage ranges between 28-30 which is normal. No fault codes or gas smell. Any thoughts or suggestions for next diagnostic steps would be appreciated. New thermostat, plugs have...
  10. E46 General
    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...
