FS: 2002 325i Wagon, 5 Spd Manual, Sport pkg, VF SC
 
2002 BMW 325i Wagon, Steel Gray with light gray leather interior, Sport Package, 5 speed manual, about 115k miles(daily driver). Factory options, Sunroof, HID's, HK sound system, non powered front seats.

Aftermarket or non original items;
VF Engineering V3 Supercharger, Bilstein PSS Coilovers, BMW Performance Short Shifter with alacantara boot, ZHP or 330i front brakes, ZHP muffler, zhp rear end(3.07), M3 steering wheel, BMW M3 Strut Brace, Z4M RTAB with limiters. Updated to Factory 119 alloy wheels. Ipod interface by Dension(Ice Link). Window tint is 35% on sides and 25% rear. I have most if not all original parts from SC install so this can be easily returned back to stock. Brakes rotors and pads are in great shape with Akebono carbon pads. The rotors show no signs of wear, no lip or gouges in the rotor. Akebono pads are nice alternate and great balance, no dust and still great cold bite!

General History:
Purchased car in 2008 with 62k. Installed new Bilstein PSS kit shortly after(around 68K). Installed SC at 80.5k. Well maintained all it's life(BMW then by me after purchase). Aside from the regular maintenance, RTAB with re-enforement disk at 90k along with front control arm bushing(Power Flex), replaced right rear window(85K) regulator and updated sunroof shade guide(109K). Rear Shock Mounts replaced at 98k when I had to warranty one rear shock with Bilstein. It has no leak but and an internal noise.

Upcoming maintenance; Tune up(VF requirements not BMW's). VF recommends tune ups at half interval of BMW's. Other than that, that's all I can think of. The clutch is good and no signs of slippage even in my hilly area. I never replaced it.

Overall condition I rate it an 8.5 out of 10 but I 'm somewhat particular.

A few dings but nothing serious. I attempted to point them out in photos(see Flikr link). It has clean CA title without any accidents. Email me for VIN if you want to run car fax.

The car runs great, never had any issues aside from minor ones. They were the typical ones for the E46 which is window regulator and sunroof shade. Both have been fixed and sunroof even updated. Vehicles has been well maintained, oil changes religiously and after SC, half of recommended intervals. The V3 is self contained(doesn't share oil with motor) and that' been changed regularly.

It's been my daily driver and been a very reliable car. The tune with this SC is pretty mellow and easy to drive. MPG more or less remains the same! My mixed city and highway driving yield from 21-23. I don't see any signs of it breaking down. I will mention the issues I do know, the oil level sensor is out. There was a click on the front passenger side is now gone. Something was just caught on tracks. The oil level sensor issue is common.

Looking to get $11k with 2 set of wheels, CSL replicas and Factory 119's, as well as all original parts.

Here's a link to few photos but will post more later.

Currently car has Velocity VB3's on.

Added photos on Flikr. Mainly of the interior as I didn't have any.

Also shot a photo of what I think is the worse ding on the drivers side door. It was due to some debris on the highway at 60mph. It's about 1" long but overall not that bad.

I asked myself the same question every time I look at it. I've owned if for 5 years and has been great. Just ready to move on and hope I find the right buyer.

With the VF SC, the car feels just right as if it should come from the factory this way. The kit retains the smooth power band and even same fuel economy. Well at least with the way I drive it.

You are making a solid argument for me getting a SC...My wallet hates you. ;)

How do you deal with CA smog with a SC? (sorry if this is off topic, but it may be useful to a prospective buyer.)

keith_m3-4 01-24-2013 02:27 PM

Ill go over details.

SeanH 01-24-2013 11:16 PM

Ooooohhh....this is very pretty. How hard is it to retrofit heated seats into an e46? I have to have them out here in Illinois. Other than that, this fits my bill exactly! :) Hmmm

illirep 01-25-2013 08:00 AM

Sweet touring!

keith_m3-4 01-25-2013 09:23 AM

To answer a few questions;

Since I purchased it, the car was maintained by me.

@SeanH, I bet it's easier retrofitting than finding a wagon like this! GL!

Love the wagon, I'm looking for something exactly like it and going to be buying within the next two months, could you send me the VIN? I have access to carfax and want to check it out.

chanlon7 01-28-2013 05:49 PM

want your car.... need to sell mine first. unless you want to drive a 330xi auto for awhile? Car is in CO now btw.

keith_m3-4 01-29-2013 01:35 PM

:thumbsup:great price

Purchased mine back in August and couldn't be happier.

keith_m3-4 02-13-2013 08:06 PM

Just got a chance to wash it. Snapped a few pics before sun went down.

Treated the front seats and armrest with Lexol. I added to photos on Flikr photostream. These are from my iPhone and not retouched.
