My Ride: '04 330xi 6sp Sport
SOLD - Orient Blue Saddle Brown '04 330xi Manual Sport Winter Premium- Boston

SOLD
------

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)

Options include:
Harman Kardon sound system
iPod Connector
Xenon lights
Saddle Brown Interior

Tasteful Modifications Include:
  1. Lightweight Kosei K6R wheels 17"x8" (approx 17lbs each) - Paid $600 new
  2. Hankook Ventus V12 Evo2 (75% tread left) - Paid $500 new
  3. HR rear anti-sway bar - Paid $200 new
  4. StopTech slotted rotors and pads - Paid $200 new
  5. Stainless coated brake lines - Paid $100 new
  6. ECS Carbon fiber front strut brace - Paid $200 new
  7. Shark Injector - Paid $300 new
  8. ZHP Shift Knob - Paid $70 new
  9. "Golf-tee" exhaust mod

Other items that come with the car:
  1. Full set of Michelin X-Ice2 Winter Tires on original BMW Style 98 wheels, Purchased Nov 2010, 10% snow tread left.
  2. Apple 30pin to Lightening adapter for iPhone connectivity
  3. 3 functioning keys including valet key
  4. Tan BMW Rubber Floormats
  5. Second set of black OEM carpet floor mats
  6. BMW Car cover
  7. Jim Conforti Cold Air Intake system (Turner Motorsports), not currently installed

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.

Good Q: Oil filter housing gasket has a very slow leak but nothing major. PM me next time you are down in the Boston area.

Plug of the butterfly valve in the rear of the muffler. Doesn't add any performance, just a louder engine noise at low engine load.

Car is now on Boston area Craigslist and Autotrader.
