Bye bye e46 :(

I pulled the trigger on getting rid of my bmw. I am happy with the trade, it was a smart deal but I miss my bmw my car had almost 300,000 on it an had a rebuilt title. Still ran good but was getting a little worried about it starting to nickel and dime me. The sti only has 85,000 kms and is in great shape.

Ended up with a jdm sti. Car pulls seriously hard and not that I street race but I may or may not have pulled on a new 545 tonite.

Anyways I am already working on trading out of it into another bmw. Might have an M lined up with aa stg 2. High kms but well maintained. Anyways just thought Id share my journey

I've actually been comtemplating doing something similar.

It would be nice to have a 4 wheel drive car in the winter, also the turbo would be nice, and im sure the subaru is more reliable and cheaper to maintain than the bmw. However there is something about these BMWs that make you never want to get rid of it... I guess our cars have soul.

It is true. Bmw's are like super magnets. They suck you in... hold onto you... than dont want to let go but this little car is a monster lol. Totally different experience.

So you traded your old POS E46 323i with 300,000KM which was probably worth $2,000 for a Subaru WRX and now you are selling that WRX for $8,750

Smart Guy. I probably would of done the same and bought another E46 with the $8,750.

I knew that car looked a little too familiar. You just parked it on different pavement.

While the car is rhd if you have never driven one than you need not worry. These cars are an absolute joy to own and you literally pick it up in minutes.

New winter tires

New windshield

New valve cover gasket


No leaks, no check engine light, no problems!


Features.
