1999 E46 BMW 328i SOLD

1999 BMW E46 328i

I have owned this car since 2014. Just two previous owners, one of which was a neighbour who bought the car from a main dealer (Sewell) in 2002. Prior to this it was owned by BMW.

Usual SE spec, so Steel Blue with grey leather, air-conditioning (working) and electric windows, also with the reliable five-speed manual. Very straight bodywork, always cared for, with just a couple of minor car park door opening dings. Certainly much better than anything you would expect at this age.

It comes with a full-service history and lots of invoices, including an £18k bill of sale from the main dealer in 2002. Always maintained well and it’s the most dependable car I have ever owned. It has been on trips to France and up to Scotland from Kent. During my ownership it has been looked after by BMW specialist ETA Motorsport in Kent. Most parts have been supplied by C3 BMW.

Work carried out during my ownership that springs to mind, and a lot recently, but some I would have missed, includes:

BMW factory recall of a new driver air bag (only E46s of a certain market value were considered by the main dealer before work was carried out)
x6 Bosch new coil packs
Rocker cover gasket
Common E46 issue of boot floor cracking has been professionally repaired and the subframe was fitted with polyurethane bushes at the same time (this was close to £1000). The boot floor was also sprayed with a rust proofer.
All season Bridgestone tyres all-round
330i front caliper/ disc conversion (new parts, not used)
Propshaft coupling
New rear discs and pads
Replacement factory Sport spec dampers and Eibach Pro Kit springs
Four-wheel alignment
New track rod ends
Replacement header tank last August (another common E46 issue)
Refurbished wheels (now showing the odd mark, but still very presentable)

Bad points:

Rear arches and a small patch on the rear door sill are showing signs of blistering (please see images). Image with key shown for scale is drivers side, as you will see the passenger side is better.
Brake pad sensors have been disconnected (it has been like this since before I bought it) so a warning light shows on the dashboard (all pads have plenty of wear left). This does not affect MoT.

CD changer doesn’t seem to work

I have just put 12 months MoT on the car and it has been into ETA Motorsport for an oil service so it is ready to go for the new owner. I also asked them to give it a once over as it was going up for sale. They didn’t suggest anything needed doing.

Any inspection and genuine enquiries welcomed. Please no time wasters or ‘what’s your best price’ messages. I would rather hang onto it.
