My Ride: '13 Cayenne GTS
FS: 2003 330i 5sp in FL

Car has 206k miles and I have owned and daily driven it it for the last 10 years. I also knew 2 of the 3 previous owners. All of us are track rats and racers and maintain our vehicles. I bought it at 68k miles. I have my new daily car now so I will be taking this off the road this week or the next. This car was supposed to go to my son, but we stumbled onto a VW 6sp with 120k less miles that made more sense.

Its a sunroof 4 door with a 5sp. Its an early '03 with Mtech 1 bumpers. Apparently rare for a face lifted E46 so you might be able to get some $ out of those Has the sport package and some other options that wont be important on the track. Has a palm sized dent in the passenger rear qrtr where I managed to back into my own truck... Yeah that was a bad morning!

I have done almost all my own maint over the years. Here a list of critical things:

Parts replaced:
  • On the 4th water pump
  • On the 3rd T-stat
  • 2nd expansion tank (comes with spare NIB)
  • 2nd Radiator (replaced 10k miles ago)
  • 2nd windshield
  • 4th set of control arm bushings
  • Replaced 1 coil (have 5 NIB)
I replaced the interior trim with Alcantara covered pieces when the OEM fabric failed.

I have NOT replaced the clutch! To the best of my knowledge it has never been replaced. Still works great (seriously! no slipping!) which should give you an idea that my shifting is decent or I have the one unicorn clutch ever made! I would probably replace it prior to tracking though. Gearbox does not pop out or anything like that.

I have a project in mind for my 911 track car that will cost ~$2500 so that's my price

Car is located in Stuart, FL and I can help with transport if you need it.

Send me e-mails through E46F for the best response! I do not spend a lot of time here. You can also find me as Euro911sc over on Pelican.

Here is a pic when I purchased the car with current pics to follow in a few days and a passion pic for spice!
