What's the maintenance history?

Not a fan of the tan interior.

Manual Transmission for me , is a must.

Looks like HID kit installed in the halogen reflector bowls.

The lights will need to go back to stock, or better still, retrofit projectors.

Good luck with your choice.

Not sure on the maintenance but Ill let you know when I see the car in person probably this weekend

Yeah I do like manual but im getting kinda tired of it because im in traffic for atleast 20 minutes a day I currently have a 5MT 00' 328i that I wanna get rid of here soon

Also I would replace the non-projector lights and get Depo or OEM projector lights with XENON OEM 4300k light bulbs
Thanks you!

M56 SULEV motor Super Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle. Doesn't CA give some kind of special treatment to low emissions vehicles?

Yes it's a SULEV. If you have engine modding plans (which you really shouldn't anyway if you're buying a 325) stay away from SULEV.

Most likely I wouldn't do any modding to the motor but im not sure if I should get something like this or lean toward the 330i ZSP will have it figured out by tomorrow though because im planning on a new car by next week and im going to look at the 330i sunday

Orient Blue Metallic over tan leather

- Sport Package
- Premium Package
- Heated Seats (maybe full Cold Weather Package - can't tell from the pics)


I would not buy an E46 without Sport Package and Xenons....since this car doesn't have xenons.....pass
