E46 is the most riced out vehicle out there - worse than Civics

Been browsing the local classifieds just wondering how much my E46 is worth.

And what I couldn't believe was that every 2nd or 3rd ad is a riced out E46 that some kid just abused to death.

There are no E36, E90, Honda Civics that are more riced out than the E46.

These damn kids ruining the looks of a perfectly gorgeous vehicle.

Some examples

I don't know if that is "rice" so much but definitely ruining of a great car. I see them all the time with huge shiny rims and massively dark tint. Tis sad

E46 is the most riced out vehicle out there - worse than Civics

This is what happens when any kid with a minimum wage job can buy a BMW. There are countless beat up and neglected E46s on the market for sale because of this. Its all just part of it and after a while they will move on to something else. People now a days try so hard to act like they have money and driving an old BMW to them is how they portray this. They would much rather roll the dice and hope to god that the car doesn't break because they spent all their money on mods than buy something reliable that they can afford. People are just a trip anymore and its actually kind of funny to sit back and watch.

+1 Alex. That 135 is a fun car to drive. Probably the closest thing to that old school BMW feel that's out right now.

Used 1 series is more expensive than a used 3 series of same year.

E46s are now somewhere between fart cans and pizza delivery on the usage curve.

No they don't. Like others said, closest to a real BMW there is right now. Would totally not mind a 128i with a stick.
