2003 325i $11.5k



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.

VIN: WBAET37433NJ24534

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 (rebuilt actually by BMW General Module 5 (GMV, ZKE V) ) power door lock control module.

~New valve cover gasket.

~New engine oil (Mobil 1) and oil filter.

~New spark plugs.

~New pre-cat oxygen sensors, both front and rear.

~New fuel filter.

~New air filter.

~New cabin HVAC filter.

~New factory wiper blades.

~New passenger side wiper arm since the old one made a tiny "clunk" noise sometimes when the wipers were running.

~New oil pan gasket.

~New oil pump. Nothing was wrong with the pump, I just changed it since I had the oil pan off.

~New oil dipstick tube o-ring.

~New oil filter housing.

~Every plastic cooling pipe replaced. Including the heater pipes under the intake manifold.

~New water pump with metal impeller.

~New thermostat.

~New radiator.

~New radiator coolant overflow bottle.

~New accessory belts.

~New belt tensioner.

~New engine mounts.

~New transmission fluid, filter and gasket.

~New transmission shift shaft seal.

~New differential fluid.

~New driver side front seatbelt assembly. The old one was retracting slowly so I changed it.

~All new headlight washer bits and pieces. The pumps/nozzles/everything that goes in the bumper.

~All new windshield washer pumps/grommets. Both pumps, the one for the windshield and the one for the lights.

~New heater fan motor blower resistor aka the "porcupine".

~New AC expansion valve/o-rings and refrigerant gas. The old valve was fine however it had a leaking o-ring so I replaced the valve as well.

~New Continental DWS extreme performance all-season tires.

~New poly lower front control arm bushings.

~4 way alignment.

~New idle air control valve.

~New DISA valve.

~New cupholder.

~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.
