    I have owned this car for a few years now and bought it from a Policeman. It has been faultless in that time and has never missed a beat, has comprehensive service history and has had some very careful owners including myself.

    It is getting a rarity seeing an E46 that’s not been abused but inside and out the car is in for good condition for its age and in this colour which I think is stunning especially when it is clean.

    There are a few issues with the car which I will be as honest as possible about:

    The car has the usual stone chips but there not excessive, the car is suffering from bubbling rear arches but these aren’t too bad and can be repaired, I have cleaned and treated underneath the arch with some treatment so they shouldn’t get too much worse. I have attached pictures so you can see these, the front arches and the remainder of the car is rust free.
    The spare key’s battery has gone flat and will not charge, it was working but now it won’t so will need a replacement.

    The tyres are fully legal but will need replacing soon. The driver’s window can creak slightly when put fully down.

    When the car is started you get the yellow oil low warning, this isn’t true and I bought the car with this fault and it’s never bothered me as it’s a common E46 fault. The lights goes off after 10 seconds.

    The only reason for sale is lack of use, I haven’t put high mileage on the car since I had it and now I may have to look at doing more miles so want a diesel.

    It’s a fantastic car and any inspection is welcome.


    Considering the car is relatively low mileage but does need a few things to make it perfect I am asking £2,350

    Thanks for looking
