My Ride: Pre-LCI E90
2002 BMW 330i M-Sport sedan, 80k, prem., sport, stock

SoCal $7,995.00! $1,000 price drop to move it.
2002 BMW 330i sedan M-Sport, Titanium Silver with Gray leather and matte aluminum trim
Automatic transmission
Premium Package
Sport Package
New Michelin Pilot Sport tires, replaced at 78,000. Front are A/S and rear are summer (chains on rear allow you to climb the mountains in the winter).

I am the second owner. The first owner was a mid-60's Chinese woman, who only put a few thousand miles on the car over the last 2 years. For real. She paid BMW to do all the maintenance and had no problem with it. That's a great thing to know about a used car!

Brake pads front and rear replaced at 75,000.
All service done by BMW service center here in Eagle Rock, unless it was simple and I did it myself. All work mentioned below done at 80k service AND preventative maintenance done at that time as well. Receipts galore.

Interior is clean, non-smoker, gray leather. Sunroof shade opens and closes but not smoothly, which is a common issue. I just leave it closed, or leave it open.

Exterior is clean, Silver with some paint fade from oxidation beginning to occur on the roof rails, door ledges, A-pillars and front bumper, as with many 10 year old E46's. I'm positive it is due to the California sun. However, it is very clean and looks great from any distance. The front bumper has two little pieces missing just under the fog lights, so I bought those pieces from BMW but haven't had them painted. The A-Pillar and C-Pillar liner is beginning to sag, and the DIY seems easy enough but I haven't had a moment to spare to fix that. I've tried to reflect the condition of the vehicle in the photos.

Other features:
Auto-Dimming mirrors
Bi-Xenon auto-leveling lights
Harmon-Kardon Sound
3-memory Sport seats
M Steering wheel
CD Player
Pre-wired for bluetooth, cd changer, etc.
Upgrades:
matte black kidney grilles (Mod-bargains)
Tint: 40% front, 30% rear (3M)
Sportline CSL rep forged 18x8.5 /18x9.5 wheels, staggered, purchased in November 2012 (Mod-bargains) with 225/40-18 front and 255/35/18 rear.

Maintenance Records all performed at 80k service (in the last 2 months)
Struts and Shocks (Monroe)
Strut mounts and new hardware all around
four-wheel alignment
Front Control Arm Bushings (OEM)
Fan Clutch (OEM)
Radiator (OEM)
Thermostat (OEM)
Water Pump w/ metal impeller (aftermarket)
Valve Cover Gasket (OEM)
Pulleys and Belts (OEM)
Spark Plugs (OEM)
Cabin Filter (OEM)
Fuel Filter (OEM)
Oil Change (Mobil 1 Synthetic/BMW filter)
New plastics under hood (replacing brittle old plastic/rubber-OEM)
Trans fluid and differential fluid (OEM)
Windshield Wipers (Bosch)

Over $2,500 in maintenance performed since November. The car runs tip top. No surprises, I'm open to show the car near my home in Eagle Rock, near Pasadena. It runs and drives great.

Kelley Blue Book retail is $11,600 and good condition private party is $9,600. Asking $8000, firm. The price is great considering the work that has been done! If you're a serious buyer, come check it out and let's talk.

Thanks. If I don't reply, it's not because I didn't get the email...

No trades, cash/cashiers check only. Los Angeles 90041 is my location.

Clean Carfax, by the way. It actually shows that this was a manager loaner for it's first 3,600 miles. So, technically, I'm the third owner

Sale also includes some gaskets (trans and throttle body) and rear control arm bushings, all new in package.

The previous owner had replaced the RCAB and I wasn't aware of that when I bought these :/

Too bad alright! Wish I had found this deal when I was shopping to buy an e46 myself.

Just bought a GOLF TDI 4dr 6spd... No room for the BMW! Don't make it suffer. It wants to drive!

This thing is priced to sell! Buy it!
