Newbie checking in

I picked this up a few weeks ago. Can someone tell me if it's a facelift model?

It's a 2003 so I think the facelift coupes came out a year earlier here than in the USA. It beggars belief that they ever stopped making the E46.
My speedo doesn't work & the ABS light is on. Is it the left rear speed sensor?

Welcome to the money pit club.

Most common question is where do you deposit your money into the car. You pop the hood and twist the oil cap off and shove as much cash as you can possibly fit into that hole.

I have been experimenting with cramming money into my clutch master cylinder.

Good luck.

I got sidetracked by some "experts" with regard to my DSC/ABS/Speedo faults. Replacement sensors MAY not solve it. The only way is to sent it to the dealer for a full diagnostic to pinpoint the fault. No sweat.
If anyone is wondering about new tires you may be interested to know that after EXTENSIVE research I shall be ordering 4 new Michelin Pilot Sport 3 "Green X" tires. For my style of driving I think they are the best compromise.
My goal is to have the finest maintained STOCK E46 325ci around. I'm not interested in mods,etc. I can afford a Porsche 997 but I'd rather spend the money in a lap dancing bar. Lurve my e46.
