Hey guys,

I live in Queensland, Australia and will be purchasing an e46 for my first car in the next 3 months from now. Love everything about them! (apart from the auto gearbox)

Hi DatsunQuality;

For your first car, avoid the 318i. Troubles and more troubles. Don't fall for the badge, you'll thank me later.

Plenty of choice for 320i or higher in Australia, so take your time and drive a hard bargain. That's all I can recommend

What Fordy said. I had an E46 318i and it was a pile of steaming horse ****. Go for a 6 cylinder if you can. I would say 325i minimum but i'm biased on that lol

Yes yes I know this, I'm not the usual shut head teenager who doesn't know anything about cars and just buys a BMW for the badge.

I'm most likely getting a 2004ish 325ci sport
