My Ride: E46 330 xi
Production numbers on the 330xi

Hi I have a 2003 e46 330 xi auto, I don't think they made a manual. Looking to see how many of these cars were made

Thanks Ted

I just don't see them around, any idea how many xi auto and manuals were produced. I know that they were approximately 34000 E30 325xi produced worldwide and that is low numbers

I sure hope they did, otherwise someone is lying to me about what the third pedal in my car does...

There was no north american 330xiT at all, let alone a manual.

Is the 330xi manual you have a 6 speed. And is it original or has this been converted, usually states on title

6 speed and factory original. The 330xi came with 5 speed from 2001-2003.5 years and 6 speed from 2003.5 to 2005 model years. The 325xi came only with a 5 speed.

5 speed and 100% original. I've owned the car since it's birth.

Clutch is new - replaced with OEM a couple of months ago.

Well first of all, the all wheel drive E30s were 325ix's not XI's. My 1989 325ix 2 door is an automatic and only about 400 of them imported to the US, more of the 4 door model with automatic, fewer of either in 5 speed manual, no where close to 34000 units imported to the US.
