How much did you pay for your E46?

I did some searching and couldn't find a forum about this topic.

I get tons of people who ask me if i payed 7, 8, 9k for my E46 after the mods I've done to it.

I payed 3200 through a private seller. Car has 156,000 and is rising fast as I love to drive. If you would like to participate please post a

-Picture of your e46 when you bought it
-How much you bought it for, And how many miles when you bought it
-A picture of what it looks like as it sits right now in your driveway.


-Bought my 2001 330i for 3200 on Christmas Eve of last year.
-143,000 miles When Purchased
-A little body damage, the side skirts had some damage but other than that an a couple door dings its was a pretty good find.
-Re did whole cooling system
-New pirelli 205-50-r17's
-Kidney Grills
-LED Taillights




-Here is how it sits right now, i fixed up the side skirts and dents and i re did the entire rear end so i think it looks pretty good. Angle eyes are on the way as well as VMR V710 Rims and Carbon Fibre Interior Trim and a fresh new ZHP Shift Knob. If anyone has any suggestions on what i should add to it let me know!






Let me know what you think and please feel free to post! (If one of these threads exists already let me know so i can contact a mod to delete the thread)


AND REMEMBER

Thanks,
Rweber330i

Transmission: 5 Speed
I purchased my 2001 330i 5MT in May of 2015 for just over $6k.

It had 118k miles, cold weather package, premium package, sport package, Mtech 1 bumpers. Since then it's been treated to new rotors/pads, full inspection 2 with fluids filters and plugs, and a clutch replacement.

I've got an M3 wheel (needs a rewrap), black interior trim, a set of style 32's for summer, and a new short shift kit with ZHP shift knob ready to install. Will probably put all of that in when I do the cooling system this spring, followed by a suspensionb refresh.

Also, I just realized that I've put 10,000 miles on this car in just 6 months...

http://i.imgur.com/ZI3nhUr.jpg

Got my 02 325xi 5-speed a few months ago with 120K for 5500. It's only got the cold weather package. Tires, brakes, engine cover gasket, oil filter gasket, and a few other things were already done. I did the whole cooling system.

I really didn't intend on messing with the car much, but I'm already buying up bits and pieces I see for good deals.

Yeah, this site doesn't seem to use the fit-to-window display from imgur, so I dropped the embed. The cooling system wasn't that bad, honestly. BMW seems to design their cars knowing someone will have to work on it.
