My Ride: 2002 330ci
Buying my first e46 tomorrow

Hi all. Im likely purchasing my first e46 tomorrow, a 2002 330ci

I chose the car because its a model I really like, and has low miles (93k kms ) and what I think is a fair price vs other prices Ive seen over the past few years of looking (and dreaming!) $9600 all in including taxes and fee's (12% tax here) Dealership purchase so its been inspected and is solid (so they say)

It'll be my 4th BMW. I currently drive an 88 535i 5 speed ( with nearly 300K miles on it! ) Previously Ive also owned a 78 318i and an 87 325e

Finally stepping UP in the BMW world! Will post pics once its in my name

Bmw dealership? Be carwful of small time dealers...they can be very shady, and usually get all their cars from auctions...

Picked it up today. It passed a BC inspection yesterday and all was good. 93000 km, all service records back to the date of purchase (incl original bill of sale) It was owned by a physiotherapist for 2 years and a plastic surgeon for the next 8, and it was babied by him. Car is very clean. New fuel pump last year.

A very nice ride! I initially used this forum to determine that I wanted a 330ci over a 325ci and I have to say I'm glad I opted for the extra horsepower! Drove around Vancouver for a few hours today then hit the highway and so far I'm very pleased with performance.

My e28 already has an interested buyer too, hopefully will sell this week and then i can close my mye28.com account

not the best res as they are attached locally

Also was a few days after Id bought it.. Ill try and get some new pics up after a nice wash and polishing.. maybe if it ever stops raining.

Recent work done to it include new Fuel Pump and brand new Xenons and headlamp covers. Also have a brand new key matched drivers door lock I've got to install myself, still in package from BMW. Presumably the door lock broke just before the car was traded in, but the part arrived in time so he just threw it into the glove box. Its missing the BMW flashlight though.
