My snowy is still for sale. $3,500. Just want it gone. She's a beast in the snow (trust me, she had a workout yesterday!).

Very clean, low mileage, nice color combo, well equipped, unfortunately auto and about $3-4000 overpriced.

I did some googling of the vin and saw it was at the local lexus dealer two months ago for nearly $4000 less. I wish I'd have seen it then.

It's also horribly overpriced for the christmas tree on the dashboard.

Good catch! That might explain the tow hook attached to the front bumper as well. I'm assuming it's a steering angle sensor or wheel speed sensor based on the lights that are on and who know what with the tail lights. Although that could be as simple as someone putting LED bulbs in it.

I had manual sport seats on my first E46 sedan. I loved them. I have manual seats on my F30 now. All 3 of my E46 have power seats currently...

Id like to know if there is significant weight savings going manual over powered.

Help me out with what the deal is that makes the manual seats desirable over the power ones, I've never understood the appeal if not strictly a track car.

We actually just had a discussion about that in the general "what have you done to your e46 today?" thread and the answer is nothing significant. I was very surprised, and knowing that, I'll answer Vick's question with this: absolutely nothing. Even in a dedicated track car, due to the lack of weigh savings, there is no advantage I can see.

I was very surprised by the weight similarity between the two seats. No reason to give up being able to push a button and be comfy after my wife drives it, now!

I'm not big on creature comforts, but seats with memory are sooo good!

Two main things for me.

I believe they sit lower. I like to sit as low as I can. I haven't had them on an E46 at the same time, so haven't measured, but it seems from memory the manuals drop down farther. I am pretty sure this is true on my F30, as when I get a loaner I can't get the seat where I want it.

Also speed. After my wife drives the car I can readjust in a fraction of a second instead of waiting for the slow motor.

If using memory with key recognition that problem likely goes away depending on how fast they move once activated.

Also, reliablity. My E60 comfort seat broke twice in less than 40k miles and I hardly ever moved it. I guess I haven't had any reliability issues with E46 power seats yet.

Guys....

Not to be a jerk, and not trying to be a moderator, but... Isn't this the For Sale thread?

I forgot to say thank you for this info.

The reliability aspect of the manual seats is a biggie

I would agree if this was 2005 and the forums were bristling with a level of activity that structure / discipline was required to keep topics in their lanes and threads pruned. Given that this board is kept alive by approximately 20 members, IMO, participation, even if it's off-topic, is welcome.

The E46 is a mature platform and just about every question has been asked and answered ad nauseam. Eduacton and DIY? Not so much. To me this is friends shooting the breeze.

Obviously violations of the ToU should be dealt with.

Just my $.02.
