I'm thinking of selling/trading my E46. Here's some info on it.
Color: Titanium Silver / Black interior
Location: St. Louis, MO
Title:Clean title, in hand
Factory Options: Power windows, power seats, lumbar, heat, Harmon Kardon audio, M-Tech I package, Sports package, cruise control, keyless entry, "gauge rings", basically everything but navigation and projectors/HID's.
History: I bought this car last year after I sold my E36 M3. I flew to New York and drove it home, which it ran flawlessly and I averaged 32.2 mpg. I drove it to and from school (about 80 mile round trip) and back and forth from Columbia to St Louis every weekend (about 240 miles) which added up the mileage pretty quick. The clutch grabs great, with no slips at all. Brakes dont squeal and there are no unsual noises from the engine bay. (No valve/lifter tick/belt squeals, etc) This car was strictly my daily driver, nothing else. Daily driving a cage'd/slammed S14 was too much of a toll on my internal organs.
I'm a neat freak. I like to keep my cars clean so it has been washed regularly and interior detailed regularly as well. The seats are in good condition with no rips, but show some wear on the driver side bolster. Everything works as it should with no problems/quirks. The wheels have no curb rash or bends in them either.
Only "mod" would be the Clarion head unit. It is full touch screen with a DVD player, USB Hookup, Radio-AM/FM, CD player and navigation capable if you buy the DVD. It also has bluetooth hookup which works very well and I use all the time.
-Car could use 4 new tires, I got the car with mis-matched tires but havent done anything with them since.
-On startup, the "OBC" says the back left taillight is out, but if you turn the running lights on for a second, it goes away. I'm not sure why it does this, but I do know that none of the taillights are out. Very unusual.
-The volume controls on the steering wheel do not work, because of the head unit. The cruise control side, however, does work. I still have the OEM head unit that will be included with sale of the car.
-There are some spots of surface rust on the trunk, one on the underside of the handle, one where the paint was chipped off on the edge of the trunk (a few centimeters wide) and one above the rear bumper.
Also on the door pillars, the black parts, shown in the pics.
-Some scrapes on the front bumper, I guess someone got too friendly with a curb while parking. And also, a nick on the rear bumper, from I dont know what. Both are shown in the pictures.
Price: $7,500 obo. If this price isnt fair, let me know.
Trades?: Possibly. I prefer cash, but it cant hurt to offer.

Phone: PM me
I'm not 100% sure if I want to sell it, but I'm always open to new things and have a wild hair up my ass to get a bike for the summer. If you have any questions about the car, please dont hesitate to ask/PM/text/call. I can take specific pictures upon request if need be.
Here's a video of a walk-around of the car.
Here are a few pics of the car.
Here's a link to more "specific" pictures I took today. Car definatley needs a wash in these pics, but it has been very cold here lately, see snow pile.
