As it is, I found a lad who sells the e46 coupe same color 2006 year, very good offer, need little bit of work, rear shocks, break lines rear, tires. I've looked the car and she is not bad, bit rusty, but engine is good, and he got a clutch and flywheel changed 2 years ago, which is good investment I think.

I do everything myself, so wont be a problem to fix small bits.

I just see that these cars are going away, and hard to find, would it be a good investment and keep a second e46 in garage?

What would you do if you got an offer for e46 and you've got e46 already
Would you own 2 e46s? Is it not strange to have 2 same cars)

here is the pics of the car if interested;

I think that’s^ the answer you’re going to get here. One to drive and the other to track and/or experiment with.

2's not nearly enough- we're at 3 right now, and that's making me nervous.
What if one breaks down? We'd be down to two? NOT GOOD!!!!

I mean, the site is called e46fanatics for a reason!

The justification I ran by the wife for why we MUST have at least two:
  1. one to drive while the other is being worked on
  2. for quick parts swap for testing
  3. for measuring signals and data values to compare to the other
  4. twinsies photos
  5. install all the good parts onto the nicer one, and keep the other as a beater

Congrats!
I see it is RHD, was that E46 originally from the UK?
She was imported from UK, id say most of cars here in IRE are imported from UK, not bad example, but needs care and some work. Already cleaned her, man how much dirty she was. Now having 2 e46, I can start work on one and drive other, happy man now

Not strange, I have my e46 currently being shipped from England to Oz, to be used for fun with my Z4, & his & hers Z3's import approval pending, hence they'll be on a boat shortly.
For most shipping a 2003 325 ci sport would seem daft, but I've had the car for a few years & although worthless in price, it has priceless memories ;)

It's not crazy, It's an affliction. ;)
Seriously, congrats on the 2nd car, but it is not the one you showed earlier. If I could have a diesel, right hand drive as a second ride, No hesitation!!

Two is one, and one is none ... congratulations!

Having an extra takes the pressure off when things need fixing.
That’s 100% true statement, also can swap parts for testing which makes diagnostic much better

Yea are doing the right thing, if you can afford definitely go for another one. My friends and neighbours already jealous))). But we work hard to afford this. Is it hard to find e46 in OZ now, so you import from UK?
