My Ride: 330CiC
[VIC] FS: E46 330ci Vert

It is with some reluctance that I am putting my car up for sale. It has always served me well and I have only ever had good times with it. It has really low km's for its age, runs like a dream and does not burn any oil.

For those of you who know me, I'm really pedantic about maintenance and have done pretty much every preventative maintenance item out there. This means that whoever ends up buying it should have a car that will serve them well for many years. Roof is in fantastic condition and has no problems going up or down.

Fluids that I use are Motul RBF600 for brake fluid, Redline stuff for gearbox and diff, Mobil 1 0W40 for engine oil and OEM coolant. I serviced the car myself every 3000-5000km due to about half a dozen track days I attended.

Specs:

Year/Make/Model: 2000 BMW E46 330ci convertible
KM: 114,xxx
Transmission: Manual
Standard Features: Heated seats, electric seats with memory, xenon lights, rear parking sensors, ABS/ASC, 17" M68 wheels with Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 tyres, CD stacker, rain wiper sensors
Extra Features:
- OEM M division two piece front and rear drilled disc brakes. These are around 5,000km old.
- Ground Control Track/School coilovers (http://www.ground-control-store.com/.../II=692/CA=177). These cost me a pretty packet to get to Australia and are EXCELLENT. They have a fully constant spring rate to help predictability with handling and the car grips the road like sh1t on carpet. These have done 11,000km since being installed, and the final adjustments and alignments were done by Trutrack suspension.
- Whiteline front and rear sway bars. No body roll
- OEM strut tower reinforcement plates
- OEM ZHP weighted gear leather gear knob
- OEM wind deflector with bag
- Factory colour coded lip spoiler, black kidney grill (OEM silver will be provided)
- Clutch stop adjuster
- Stewart high flow water pump

Had the car for 2.5 years and have done around 25,000km in that time. Car has been serviced very regularly using OEM parts and doesn't have any subframe issues (I checked again last weekend). At 100,000km these maintenance items were conducted: cooling system has been completely replaced with OEM parts and fluids, spark plugs have been replaced, valve cover gasket replaced, gearbox and diff oils flushed, new battery, final stage resistor replaced (113,000km). Engine/Intake/Exhaust are completely stock standard.

I'll throw in the remainder of the service items I have left. There are about five oil filters, a charcoal filter, air filter, fuel filter, full set of OEM disc brakes and pads with 75% meat, all OEM suspension components and an OEM short shift kit that I haven't got around to installing yet. I'll also detail it completely before passing it on to the next owner.

Car pulls really strongly and was dyno'd at 142.6rwkw - not bad for something that puts out 170kw at the engine.

Not really in a rush to sell so happy to take questions, have a bit of a chat or meet up if you would like to check it out in Melbourne. You can PM, email at dan.1337 @gmail.com or contact me via mobile on 0402 502 537.

Includes a RWC and 12 months registration in Victoria. If there are no bites here over the next month, I'll list it on Carsales. I'd prefer to sell it as is, but if you prefer stock suspension I'm happy to swap out the Ground Controls.

I should also add that the LCAs were replaced at around 80,000km and the car has always lived undercover in a lock up garage.

Revised pricing of $23k ONO with standard sports suspension, sway bars and brakes.

All preventative maintenance has been done. Whoever buys my car won't have to worry about any common failure items for another 80,000-100,000km!

I'll also be renewing the registration for another 12 months in about a week.

I've listed my car on Carsales with the most up to date description, price, pictures, etc. Forum members will get the $23k price ONO, the spare bits and pieces and wind deflector.

Please pass the link on to anyone who you might know that wants a great condition 330ci!

Good luck!

It does have a hard top at the press of a button =)

If you haven't already been in a vert on a nice summers day or evening, or driving through a winding mountain road with the top down and straight 6 echoing off the mountain, it's really something you never forget. Even in winter it's great because of the seat warmers that you don't get in the coupes

yeah, but a) my car lives on the street where I don't trust a soft-top to not leak, and b) I'm a redhead and verts (along with beaches and summer days) are some of our many natural enemies. You've seen 300 where the heroes "fight in the shade"? well I drive in the shade.

But I hope I can find a 330Ci that is as well looked after as yours in the same price range
