I have facelift E46 325ci but for 17 year old I might recommend the 1ZZ (lower powered version) of the Toyota Celica, maybe a 2000-2004 model.

Adios Amigo's

After all the endless maintenance issues I've had enough. I need a car which doesn't break down every month so I sold both my E46's and bought a fully optioned 2009 Lexus IS250.

Hasta la vista.
