SOLD - Orient Blue Saddle Brown '04 330xi Manual Sport Winter Premium- Boston
Hi guys / girls. I will be parting with my car in late July due to a potential move abroad. Car is a rare 330xi 6 speed manual with Saddle Brown Interior, Sport, Premium, and Cold Weather packages. It was originally optioned fully loaded except Navigation @ $48,000 MSRP. It took me about 6 months to find back in 2010 when I purchased it, which is why i'm listing it so early in case someone else like me is out there looking for something similar. Car currently has about 172k miles and is in what I would consider to be good to very-good shape. Looking for $6,000 OBO by August for this hard-to-find car which includes roughly $2k in extras listed below. (I welcome your comments / suggestions)
Harman Kardon sound system
Saddle Brown Interior
Tasteful Modifications Include:
Other items that come with the car:
General Condition of Vehicle:
This E46 looks and drives great for its age. My friends are often surprised that it is not much newer than its actual model year. I'll attempt to summarize some of the imperfections below:
No Rust. One 3" dent under passenger tail-lamp, visible at an angle from 10 feet. One 2" slight dent on trunk due to ice chunk (probably $70 paintless dent fix). One minor scratch beneath passenger fog lamp, one light 10" scratch along passenger door, both barely visible when kneeling down, in direct sunlight from less than 5 feet. Several light scratches near hood ornament. Car has never had any body or paint repair performed. Paint is waxed semiannually and otherwise is in good condition. Front BMW emblem has finally started to peel off like many other cars i've seen.
Interior: Sideview mirror switch needs replacement for angle adjustment. Rearview mirror autodimming feature does not work
Mechanical: Car consistently achieves 27+ MPG. This is truly an impressive all around car that you can take for a nice night out, to a nice winding road, or the ski area with its folding rear seats & ski bag.
