Looking to enter the E46 Family. I want your opinion and/or what i should look for when inspecting the car before purchase ...also what do you think about a price...

Down a street from me there is a 2002 BMW 325i Sedan for sale...Its black on black sport edition....Mint Condition....67K asking $11,000.00 AUTO

The only problem is the he bought if from a dealer and the total amount of car OWNER is 4...thats seems alot correct?

also there is a accident report on car fax...he claims to be a smash of a door when someone backed into the car....HE didnt get into the accident the dealer claimed thats wht happend under last owner

ANY THOUGHTS on all this.....or should i wait for another e46?

Manual is way better then an Auto. You should look through some of the classifieds on here first, and use Autotrader/Craigslist/Cars.com. Don't jump the gun though okay?

I would wait on a 330, with fewer PO's, and no collision.. there are way plenty 46's out there just be patient. you wont regret it. GL bro

Get the 330, they're selling for nearly the same price, make sure you go 03 or newer so you get the 6 speed. Don't worry about previous owners too much, these cars are getting older, they're going to have more owners. As long as they were maintained and there haven't been like 3 owners in the last 18 months or something crazy they car will be fine. 11k is way high, even with the lower miles.

Got to say...THIS CAR IS A BEAUTY
How many have you test driven?

The first Imola Red ZHP I test drove appeared to be 'a beauty' - 39K miles, clean carfax, shiny, spotless, sounded incredible and drove smooth. On my second look at the car I went over it with a fine tooth comb and found evidence of extensive paint work and non-OEM replacement parts.

Don't fall in love at first sight.

Yeah i would never give him 11K...He only had this car for 4 months and he lost his job but still got to pay the bills thats why he is selling it. What price is good for this car? 8K?
