And when it comes to the E46 you're best off getting the best optioned car you can find (330/328 with sport pack, premium pack, etc) because they all get right around the same mileage and they all cost about the same to insure, why go for the lower model? I've seen plenty of 328's sell for under $6000 and 325's too. How wide is your search margin?
I can't really find any standout local 325's or 330's that are E46 for a decent price, I'm not sure if I'm not searching correctly or what, but the one displayed in the OP is definitely the best one I've found so far. I just want to make sure I'm not making a mistake buying this car.
