My Ride: E46 325Ci
2006 E46 325 Ci 5spd

Location: SoCal

Car history:
I purchased it in Aug 2006 from Crevier BMW. I am the original owner but my bro drove it until 2016. Since then itís been my hobby car and I took care of a bunch of mechanical upgrades and maintenance. The car drives great and the 3.46 diff really makes a difference in acceleration.
Asking price is $5500 OBO. Email at [email protected] or text at (714)482 5758.

2006 325Ci base model with sports suspension (now it sits on H&R Cup Touring)
Purchased from Crevier BMW in Aug 2006 (built date is 04/2006). Been in family since day one
173XXXk miles with 5 speed manual transmission, engine code is M54
Wheels are TRM with Micheline Pilot Sport 4S (bought in Sept last year). Original wheels type 119 that came with the car are included.
Everything works in the car.
The car has the trunk tool kit, flashlight (it works), all paperwork, manuals and original window sticker
Both airbags replaced by dealer as part of recall campaign.
Modifications: K&N filter, upgraded suspension parts as shown below, 3.46 differential & ZHP muffler.
Rear bumper cover has some scrapes from a parking lot bump.
This car has been very well maintained.

Maintenance history:
The car had BMW maintenance included up to 50K.
@ 35k miles new differential was installed (warranty claim)
Thermostat replaced around 60k miles
Coolant bottle, water pump, level sensor, transmission fluid changed around 100k
Normal oil changes and maintenance
Unfortunately my bro was very loose with paperwork and I canít prove the early maintenance.

Since Oct 2015 the following has been done (almost all have paperwork). All parts were new unless otherwise indicated. I have included the part numbers in parenthesis. All parts were bought from ECS, Pelican Parts and a few others from Amazon.
