    Thanks Paul, that's great to know. You probably couldn't get a better market comparison! I have now listed mine on Trademe - https://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=1649485921

    If it was manual I would it be "Full M3 spec..." 😅 Hopefully a member picks it up before I list it on Trademe. FYI the very BMW that rolled off the production line directly in front of mine sold on Trademe last week. Identical spec Estoril Blue E46 325i Motorsport Sedan. VIN was different by one number, and they shared the same production date of 19/7/02. Seller was asking $8,000.
  5. With one too many E46's occupying the garage, unfortunately my 325i Motorsport sedan is now up for sale. 165,6XXkm. NZ New (4 private owners before me). BMW Individual Estoril Blue. Facelift (07/2002 build). Full Motorsport spec. Auto. Black leather/black cube aluminium trim. Multi-function steering wheel (cruise control, radio control etc). Parrot Bluetooth handsfree system. 3 keys. Airbag recall done late 2017 by Auckland City BMW. The majority of service history has been with Coombes Johnston BMW and Team McMillian (now Auckland City BMW). The most recent service was in February 2018 (+/- 1,000km ago) at Burgers Motor Works. This service included all the usual filters and fluids plus a new valve cover gasket & bushes, radiator hose/breather hose, water pump (preventative), idler pulley, oil filter housing gasket plus other misc. items - no stone left unturned.

    Estoril Blue E46 M

    I have seen that on there too. My car was the very next off the production line it seems (quite literally). They share the same production date 19/7/02 and Vin NG64506 vs NG64507.

    Only you would Tom! 😅
  8. https://www.ecstuning.com/b-genuine-european-bmw-parts/csl-intake-flap/11617833498~oee/ It appears your Karbonius snorkel essentially takes the place of the OEM flap.
  9. Great purchase going with the Karbonius airbox. I'm considering picking up up one of the revised Geoff Steel airboxes when I'm over in the UK later this year. Are you doing the full CSL conversion with flap and MAP sensor/custom tune? Who's doing the install?

    Estoril Blue E46 M

    Due to this car now being somewhat surplus (see thread), I am considering putting it up for sale. Full service less than 500km ago by Burger Motor Works (Feb 18). The service also included a new valve cover gasket/bushes, radiator hose/breather hose, water pump (preventative), idler pulley plus other misc. items - no stone left unturned. If you would like any more information PM me. I'll umm and ahhh to see if I can justify keeping all three E46's before formally listing...would be a shame to see it go as she's a beaut!

    So...who ended up purchasing the LSB M3? Ray, Nick, or Brent?

    Somebody save the Laguna Seca Blue E46...Would be interesting to see how extensive the damage is beyond the door and rear quarter panel.
