My Ride: 2000 323Ci
2000 323Ci

When I bought this in Sept of '11, I was originally looking for a GTI but could never find one I wanted. I'd either find a dealer lot, overpriced beater or one would turn out to be an automatic. So, I thought I'd try again.

2000 BMW 323Ci Alpine White with Dove Grey leather. Original owner bought it in North Miami and relocated to Charlotte. Serviced at Hendrick and traded in there, then sold to the next owner as a CPO. I bought it from the second owner in Sept of '11 with 129,000 on it. When I bought it the reverse solenoid had been replaced, cooling system refreshed, and the suspension had been refreshed a few years prior. It now has 143,xxx on it and I've done the valve cover gasket, washer pump, new windshield cowl panel, new headlight lenses, new D2S bulbs, intake cam sensor, and just replaced all pulleys/idler and both belts.

Mods include a Racing Dynamics strut brace, M3 front rotors/calipers, 325/328 rear rotors/calipers, OE pads, Euro tray, clear turns/tails/sides, and a yet to be installed BSW Soundplicity iPod/iPhone integration kit.

Factory equipped/optioned with xenon headlights, ZSP package, Style 44 17x8 wheels, manual non-heated sport seats, no sunroof/moonroof, Harmon Kardon stereo, Aero kit rear wing, and a rare satin chrome shift knob/e-brake handle. Anthracite interior trim, no wood in there!

A few things need some love though. Interior "A" and "C" pillar cover fabric is starting to pull up...gotta look for it though. Drivers side outer/upper seat bolster could use some Leatherique Rejuvinator oil and one seam near the head rest on the back seat is starting to come loose, very minor though. If you're extremely anal, like I am, the outside could use a light buff...but it does have a good coat of wax on her for the winter and shines well after a wash.

This is as good as I can describe it right now, but feel free to ask questions if you've got one.

$8750/obo, prefer trade for later model Mk 4 GTI!!! 20th AE or 337 Edition would be awesome!

It does say OBO and you will be hard pressed to find a 323Ci any nicer or cleaner!

Pics! Tails/turns/sides are now clear.
