Rare E46 BMW with the long roof, 3 pedals, sport package, all wheel drive. Meticulous owner with complete maintenance records. 3 Series touring models were almost never sold in the US with both the manual gearbox and the AWD options and AWD gives it great handling in the snow or rain. I purchased this in 2005 from the original owner (not off lease). It's the perfect car for trips up to Big Sur, Mammoth, or camping in the Sierra. The motor is the M54, BMW's award-winning naturally-aspirated straight 6 coupled to a Getrag five-speed manual transmission. (Did I get all those hyphens in the right places?) Typical E46 problems have been addressed such as 3 of 4 window regulators, front CV boots, coolant expansion tank, valve cover gasket, and front control arms replaced.
A few cosmetic dings to be expected for a car of this age, but never in an accident and no mechanical problems. 176,000 original miles. All needed maintenance and all recalls (like airbags) have been done by the dealer under warranty or specialist independent BMW shops. Regular oil changes with synthetic oil only. Tires are OEM Michelin Pilots that have a little less than half tread left.
This is the last model year before BMW's obsession with electronics began, so it's got a classic minimalist interior with no nav system, touchscreens, iDrive and other gizmos to break. Everything works such as the tiltdown mirror, CD/stereo, AC, power windows etc., but most things are manual.
$5500 firm. Cash only. Happy to entertain out of town buyers, but you must come get it.
