Estoril Blue E46 M

Recommended Posts

3...Sport ;)

Picked this up on Trademe a couple of weeks back sight unseen, and flew down to Tauranga on the weekend to pick it up.

2003 E46 325i MSport Individual - NZ New, 161km, auto, facelift, leather. Has a near full Coombes Johnston BMW service history from new. Ticked the boxes for what I was after for a daily driver.

Given the overall condition of the car there are no plans other than replacing a few little cosmetic items (faded emblems, wiper blades etc), and a paint correction/protection in due course. Got stuck in yesterday tidying it up inside and out and she came up okay!

That blue just sets it off pleasing to the eye good luck with it John may it bring many happy motoring hrs .On a personal note two things that funny chrome thing sticking out the rear plus what it is attached to delete. Second I know they are m sport wheel they just seem to detract from the aesthetic look of the car.

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!

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.
