FS: 2004 330Ci (Clean. Unique. Modified.)

As some of you may already know, I have been considering selling my car for some time. I think the time has finally come and this thread, unlike the other I created last week, is NOT a feeler and I am very serious about selling the car. I would love for my car to go to someone who can fully appreciate the time and effort that has gone into it. The car has been to many regional shows and has always been well received. I have babied it since the day I picked it up and I detail the car every other month using only the best products and methods (Menzerna, Zaino, etc). This car is a complete package deal and no aspects were overlooked. Unlike some heavily modified cars out there, this car has been put together with the mindset of preserving the factory functionality, fit and finish while also introducing unique changes that improve the overall appeal of the car. The car is one of very few 330Ci's without a sunroof which only furthers the purpose-built nature of the car.

Pictures will follow this weekend when I have a chance to clean the car up and do a full walk around. In the meantime, you can easily search under my name for thread's I've started and you'll find many many pictures.

General

2004 330Ci
Silver Grey Metallic
Black Leatherette Interior
Xenon Adaptive Headlights
52,XXX Miles

Condition

Interior
~ The interior shows little to no signs of wear. The leather surfaces are not shinny and still look factory fresh. No smells. No worn seat bolsters. No ripped mats. No stained carpets. Spotless headliner. And it doesn't smell like air freshener either. I hate that smell.
~ The only evidence of wear is on underside of the passenger door armrest where the rubberized finish has come off slightly. I have no idea how this got worn but its very hard to see. You literally need to open the door, get your head under the door and look up to see it.
~ No rattles or squeaks
Exterior
~ The exterior shows little to no signs of wear. There are no signs of swirl marks anywhere on the car.
~ There are 2 small dime-sized dings on a single panel and one small ding on the roof from an acorn. All dings appear to be shallow enough to be repaired with a DIY ding repair kit or, of course, a professional could take them out with no effort at all. There is a hairline scratch under the driver side door marker which has been repaired with polish and is unable to be photographed. There is a slight rub on the driver side rear bumper which has been repaired with polish and is unable to be photographed as well.
Engine/Drivetrain
~ Oil Changes were performed every 3-6,000 miles.
~ Clutch was changed under 15,000 miles ago under warranty due to a slight rattle that was later determined to be a loose screw in the engine bay.
~ Engine runs very strong with no unusual sounds whatsoever. No cold weather start issues at all. Even in sub-freezing conditions, the car starts and settles to a normal idle with zero issue.
~ Transmission fluid was recently flushed with Red Line brand oil. Differential fluid was changed as well to Red Line brand oil.
Suspension/Braking
~ All bushings and bearings have been inspected and determined to be in good condition. The shocks/struts have under 5,000 miles on them.
~ All rotors and lines have been inspected and determined to be in good condition. Rotors show very little to no sign of lipping. Lines also show very little to no signs of wear. Brake pads were replaced under 5,000 miles ago.
~ The very best brake fluid, Motul 600, was all that has been used on this car.

Modification

The modifications performed on this car are extensive but stock functionality is preserved throughout. There are no "ghetto rigged" items and everything works exactly how it should. The exterior and interior are subtly changed and upgraded. The performance has been improved and the car is extremely responsive and peppy. The handling has been vastly improved and you would be hard-pressed to find a car that handles better with the selection of components installed. The car has been described by others as "frightfully balanced" and I couldn't put it any better than that. In case you haven't realized by now, I love this car dearly.

Whatever you do, going into a new E90 will make you miss your E46...that's why I had to come back...

And don't worry. I have no interest in an E90.

To anyone interested, I am certainly open to offers!

To all those interested: The car will undergo the Inspection II service prior to sale. This is a big ticket maintenance point and will likely update my control arms and other parts. All parts not needing replacement will be inspected to ensure they are in good condition.

Sorry, didn't catch this reply. Shoot me a PM. I'd have to figure out what the trade-in value of your car would be first and then we can figure something out perhaps. I'm definitely not adverse to the idea. Basically, I'm trying to make a set amount of money on the transaction. If I can make it, done. If I can't, no big deal... I love my car!

If you are interested, I might be able to arrange a competitive price for shipping the car down to AL. A friend of a friend ships cars for the Ferrari dealerships in the region and has offered his services in the past...

Saw this car in person last year, it was in fantastic shape. Perfect color, options and mods and without any offense to anyone, you're one of the few on here who knows how to set up a suspension. I'd love to see what you would do to an M3. Whoever buys this will get a true performer. Function > form
