my fault. it was kinda difficult to text on my phone. That 325i. I left off at $52 & was going to try to get it for less than $5 when I get to the car.

After searching an e46 for a while.. I think I'll settled for this one tomorrow..

Despite price issue, I'd stay away from this car anyway...not for the 180K miles (KM?) but for the "intake, exhaust, lowered."

Although there are some 'intake, exhaust, lowered' cars that are done right by enthusiasts, I'd bet most are from kids that thought of their car as a toy and treated it as such. That PO spent his money on useless things, and seemingly ran out of $ for the important stuff...just saying.

I'm not getting a good feeling about that car.

Also, I agree that you should have $2-4,000 around for the things you'll learn you need in the next year or two...with any old e46 you get.

Why don't you buy a more reliable car at this price point with lower miles.

Well I didn't get that black 325i. I went with the 2nd link (that's if it's still valid). '00 323i is what I ended up with. Love the car. I'll post a few photos later on Monday. I also hear I might need a Bluetooth kit since I would like that option to work for my android.

Don't buy it... Buy from the forums... I just got my 325i for $6k late 03' model, 75k miles, dealer maintained, perfect color combo/interior trim, and some nice mods...
