Hey All,

I have been going through these forums for a while now trying to find all and any info i could to help me with my purchase.
Since I have now purchased my First E46 i should introduce myself.

I have bought a 05' 325CI Sport Manual 144K kms, a nice upgrade from the 94' 318i.
Car itself was a 2 owner vehicle, 2nd owner had owned it since 40k km. The car also had a solid service history.

Exterior is Silver Grey with only a small scratch on the front lip. Other than that exterior is in amazing condition.

Interior is also in amazing condition with a small amount of wear on the drivers seat, which isnt much all factors considered and compared to some of the interiors you see. Rear seats look unused.

I will be doing a good maintenance session on the car in the next few weeks, this will include full service, cooling system refresh, new gaskets and the lower control arms could do with replacing as they are starting to show some wear signs.

Photos are from the Previous owner, I will have some more when i get the chance.

Look forward to seeing some fellow Fanatics on the roads.

Welcome. Nice find with the manual. How much did you pay for it?

I'm around Sydney as well. There's a euro meet @ Rydalmere Bunnings @ 6:30PM next Saturday (14th).

the front suspension bits are such a satisfying job to complete. Really restores the car

Front handles great.
Control arms are for the rear.
Current ones are showing age, slight creaking noises and such. Had a look under and the bushes are worn.
Will be fully checking and replacing front soon if needed.

Well friends, it was a sad day this saturday, the hail decided to beat down on her.
Am still waiting to go have an assessment done.
But things look pretty grimm.
Very decent dents all over her including front and rear pillars also a cracked windscreen.

Will update once assesment has been done.
