Just thought id pop in and introduce myself. My name is Ashley from the UK and i just got my first e46 coupe. Its a 99 323ci, ex bmw launch car and then owned by a football player.
Ive had it for 2 weeks and done nearly 1500 miles! Its brilliant with a nice spec. Xenons, Parking sensors, switchtronic, DSC, Topaz Blue, Grey leather with electric seats, headlamp wash, etc
High mileage at 112k but a comprehensive FBMWSH and i spoke to both dealers who have serviced the car, bot gave it thumbs up, remembering it because of its owner!
Anyways, i paid 8.5k, seems pretty good value to me? Am i correct?
Only fault i can find is a knocking from the left front wheel at 0-30mph, im pretty sure its the wheel bearing, its not pronounced but im going to get it sorted for piece of mind.
Anyway, hope to contribute my experiences and some pics of the car soon.
