My Story

After 4 years of ownership it's time to move away from my E46. With a family, two doors no longer cut it. I'm fortunate to have held on to it for this long. I'd like to see this go to another enthusiast so I'm posting this here before I take it outside of the BMW forums.

I purchased the car February of 2008 with 39k miles, now at 79,000 (I averaged less than 10k mi/year) During my first two years of ownership the car's spent most of it's time in my apartment garage in Washington DC. Body is in great condition. No door dings. Front bumper has some nice scratches underneath. No mods were ever done to the car. I had planned on a CSL trunklid but never got to installing it and sold it. No accidents. One bad parking job I dinged the front bumper license plate bracket. The front bumper was scratched but are hidden by the license bracket. The steering wheel suede is worn in spots from the previous owner. At my asking price the wheel will be rewrapped. The interior was treated with Leatherique a month ago and will be retreated once more.

The car has been serviced nearly exclusively by BMW. BMW of Arlington and Passport BMW were used for warranty and service. Inspection II was performed by Road Race Technology in Dulles, VA. (Well known BMW specialists in the DC area) All records and receipts were kept and will be included with the sale. Oil changes and other maintenance items were performed by myself after the service agreement with BMW ended. All parts purchased were genuine BMW parts (receipts kept) and were mostly purchased from Tischer BMW in Silver Spring, MD.

Shortly after purchasing the car, the notorious Vanos rattle presented itself. It was replaced with a new unit by Passport BMW and worked perfectly. Slowly the rattle returned and I replaced the unit with a Dr Vanos fully rebuilt unit with better seals and an anti-rattle kit. The new unit works perfect. No more noise and returned HP is nice =D I also decided to replace the spark plugs and change the oil at the same time. I'm sure I'm missing a few things while I'm writing this up.

If you're local you're more than welcome to take a look. Tire kickers and joy riders need not apply. Please ask questions. I am willing to have the car taken to get a PPI on your coin.

More pictures to come.

Thanks guys













Added 8/02: Interior Pics as promised. Engine Pics to come.

Proper ZHP shifter knob is what will come with the car. I swapped knobs with my E28 for a week to test it out with my Z3 shifter in that car. So disregard that in this picture. Also note that this is the carpet that is shown, not the carpet mats or rubber mats that will both be included with the car.

Good looking car! And good luck with the sale.

Re: the Dr. Vanos unit, at what RPMs do you notice the returned HP most? I'm going to be replacing the valve cover gasket soon, and I was thinking about doing this. I don't have the rattle, but I feel like power in the lower/mid RPM range is not what it used to be.

The noise was the biggest issue with me. The return of HP wasn't very noticeable, if at all. There are alternatives to the Dr Vanos unit that involves replacing the O rings yourself. It'll be cheaper for you and probably a better solution since you don't have the tell-tale noise to know for sure.

There may also be the issue with not having the most recent software in your car. Most especially if you notice a "dip" in response before 4k rpm.

Hope that helps
