Check out this gem...

I valeted this car a couple weeks ago. Late 2003 build 4-door 330i. Imola red with black interior. Had ZHP wheels (so I'm guessing it was a ZHP). Lady in her 60's driving it.

Absolutely spotless. Only issue was the lack of a third peddle.

I work a couple valet shifts on the weekend and she parked with us. If I didn't have the M, I would have asked her if she'd consider selling it. And I'd be starting another auto>>>manual swap thread.

Mid to high teens is my guess. It is still old.

ZHP redline is 6800. This is not a ZHP cluster.

Also true. Extremely low mileage E46 nonetheless

Sorry, I only had a second to get a picture, couldn't do a whole photo shoot. I wish I would have taken a picture of the ID plate. All I know is it had ZHP wheels, which is why I thought it was probably a ZHP. I doubt this lady swapped them out herself.

I just thought I'd share, you don't come across many 9 year old cars with that low of mileage.

Yeah...

But I normally drive my E46 while the M sits in the garage. (well that's recently now that my auto >>> manual swap, subframe reinforcement, H&R cup kit, suspension refresh is complete SEE HERE)

Dude valets make bank.

Hell, the guy that works the register at my neighborhood convenience store has a brand new F30 335i sport.

It's not how much you make, it's how much you care about your ride.

I make 6 figures and drive a 1999 323i and am currently working on getting my significant other to let me buy a $70 pair of new headlight lenses.

Each one of these factors was a choice you made. And presumably you are happy with each one. Or at least telling yourself you are.
