F/S 2002 330XI 5 SPD Manual Transmission. NYC
2002 BMW 330xi. 5 speed Manual Transmission
Millage: about 114K and counting.
VIN # WBAEW53442PG08727
Grey Interior with wooden trim
Fully functional electronics.
6 CD changer in the trunk, BMW business cassette player
Cold weather package.
Interior has almost no wear, no cracked leather.
I have been shopping for an E46 recently for my buddy and from what i have seen for the same price i rate my interior 8 out of 10.
Bought the car exactly 2 years ago with 96K miles.
Mixed city + highway mileage over last 2 years i would say 30% city 70% highway.
Maintenance done since i bought the car:
- changed fluids ( brake, driveline fluids, antifreeze change)
-replaced OEM water pump with steel bladed one
-changed air filter,cabin filter/
-Changed fuel filter
-replaced VCG ( used high temp sealant too)
-replaced 2 front OEM struts with all worn out parts.
-bought 2 bridgestone potenza g019 grid for the front. ( rear bridgestones have A LOT of life in them as well)
- replaced 1 rim with a brand new one ( the old one cracked)
-changed oil every 6 months to correct for temperature variations.
-replaced vanos line seal
-replaced oil filter housing gasket
-replaced DICA valve.
-performed ICV treatment.
-replaced numerous pulleys and tensioners along with belts
-performed wheel alignment this week.
- replaced O2 sensor ( don't remember which one)
-replaced spark plugs ( used Bosch)
Used only BMW oils and fluids.Used only OEM parts ( except for water pump)
Serviced partially at dealership, partially at other mechanics specializing in BMW's.
I have all the records to prove it.
What is wrong with the car:
Well it is a city car and I kept it outside so there is a minor cosmetic damage to the exterior:
Got keyed in a few places, some curb rush on the rims. Hood paint a bit damaged by what looked like a paint remover.
Some minor scrapes on the front and rear bumpers,a little dent above the rear right wheel of the car that shows some insignificant rust.
Sagging left side of the front bumper ( i bought it like that but never got around to fix it).
usual E46 problems with moonroof,driver and passenger side windows.
The car is currently throwing Cam sensor codes and i will be replacing them this week.
Clutch exhibits some slippage at higher gears, makes a cricket sound when depressed ( mechanic said it is throw out bearing)
Right motor mounts are cracked but not blown.
The car drives fine, no smokes or oil leaks, no vibrations, noises or rattles.I want to sell it mainly because i got tired of the constant upkeep and because i don't want to do clutch job.
if, however, i am to replace the clutch then i am going to hold on to it for longer. Never raced on it or drove recklessly. Never redlined, treated the car with respect.
It looks clean, i did not wash it to sale, hence i am not masking any leaks or damage. What you see is what you get.
If interested, contact me through PM.
