Selling my daily driver. I bought this car September, 2011 to be my reliable dd. It was a clean car with 85k when I started. It now has 93k and I have sorted/replaced/done pretty much everything possible to make it run/operate as well as I can. Almost every known E46 foible has been addressed to make it that way. In my opinion, it would be hard to find a better driving E46 automatic sedan. Most of the things I changed or replaced were preventative in order to avoid future problems. An '08 WRX STi showed up unannounced the other day so this one is for sale.
I have a clean, clear WA State title in hand in my name. No brands or liens on the title. 93,500 miles on the clock.
It has the cold weather package with heated seats/ski pass through and full leather. OEM Style 68 BMW 17" wheels from a 2002 330i with the M-Sport package. 5-speed auto trans. Keyless entry/alarm. Sunroof. Factory hid headlights and headlight washers.
This is most of the work I did, minus whatever I'm forgetting. Everything was done since September, 2011 and 85k miles. All the work was done at Ishii Motor Industries, BMW Seattle and Group 2 Inc:
~New rear wheel bearings, both sides.
~New rear discs, pads, parking brake shoes/hardware, etc. The front brakes look like they were recently done so I didn't touch them.
~All new power window regulators. All 4. Known problem area on any E46.
~New BMW OEM M-Sport dead pedal, as would come in an E46 M3.
~New BMW floormats.
~New OEM grill kidneys with black slats instead of chrome.
~New driver side exterior trim piece, the one that goes around the front door and A-pillar. I tried having BMW Seattle glue the old one in place since it kept shifting forward on it's own. No such luck so I had them install a new one.
The car runs/drives exactly as it should. It looks just as good in person as in the pictures. Its never been smoked in or had pets as passengers.
