So, hopefully this is OK with our moderators, but I have a sense that these cars are becoming hard to find in decent shape. I wanted to start a roll call thread for this group to get a sense of what we have in our respective garages. Focusing on the main elements of the car and not really focused on mods unless it applies to the columns listed. Please add the details for your Touring. If you have, or have had more than one (lucky bugger :clap:), list 'em all!

So, I'll throw mine in...

Someone asked what I would do with the info. My plan is to initiate a kind of registry of these cars for at least those who are involved in this list.

I have set up a Google sheet here.

It is presently read only, so I will make corrections and add content myself for now :)loco:). This data may start to show us some interesting patterns. It is already apparent that rear wheel drive is popular here in a way it is not with the general public!

I have also added a "VIN last 7" column, as I am interested in what the range of the build number is on these cars. I suspect that the number of RWD sport manual cars in the US is pretty small. You might find some of our cars are "sisters" with adjoining VIN's. Of course it is your option if you want to add this data, but the more the better.

Feedback and improvements invited.

You can PM me or add to the thread with updates. And for those who have not yet responded, please share!

I have turned on the comment function in the Google Sheet. This link will get you to the sheet. If you have an update to your car, leave a comment and I will update.

Since I have not yet found one anywhere on the Interwebs for the US, the next step: "North American e46 Touring Registry"

Once the traffic dies down on this thread and it seems like we have a bunch of us on the sheet, I will open a new thread which I'll call something like "e46 Touring Registry". I'll keep adding data as people keep feeding the roll call thread. I'll try to add features and functionality to the sheet as we go along. Definitely looking for input!
