FS: 2006 BMW E46 325Ci Clubsport Coupe NZ NEW

Recommended Posts

BMW E46 325Ci Clubsport Coupe
2006 Registered in NZ - 05/2005 build

142,000kms

NZ New (only 1 lady owner before me)

Carbon Black (E46 M3 Colour - blue/black not the dark black)

Fully optioned with leather interior sports seats, anthracite headlining, glass moonroof/sunroof, black carbon cube trim, multifuction steering wheel, tyre pressure sensor, automatic on/off Xenon headlights, DSC (traction control), PDC (parking sensor), automatic rain sensors and much more. AUX line installed to factory stereo for stealth look but has the stock NZ New CD player and all radio stations working

It has been tinted all round 35% sides and rear and 20% on the glass moonroof and top of the front windscreen for added glare protection

It has had a fresh oil and filter service (Castrol Edge 5w-30 and genuine filter), thermostat, waterpump, cabin filter replaced

Genuine BMW Staggered Style 194's with Falken 225 45 17 front and 255 40 17 rear tyres in excellent condition (7mm tread left)

Recent wheel alignment has been done

The car is in excellent condition inside and out mechanically and cosmetically

Also being a facelift model it has the LED taillights which look heaps nicer and the slightly longer boot trim above the rear number plate (subtle improvement)

No doubt it is one of the best examples of E46 available for sale for a reasonable price!

For those who are wondering how this compares to the more common 330ci msport/clubsport, I can honestly say, there is very very little noticeable difference

I have owned a few 328ci, 330ci, 330i, 325i BMW's before and this is not lacking at all compared to the 3L engine

In fact, the M54b25 engine that this car has is just absolutely wonderful in terms of power delivery and also economy. It is slightly less thirsty than the 3L version. It goes just as quick and rides/handles just as well

Given the condition and rarity of NZ New Clubsport E46 coupes in this condition I am asking for $8000 but will consider serious offers.

Will take $9000 for it if anyone on here is interested.

Just saw a 2004 nz new 330ci msport higher mileage sell for $10500.

Probably a dumb question, but other than the options ticked, what makes a Clubsport special?

Not a dumb question at all.

Long story short there is not a huge difference between an msport and Clubsport. The most obvious is the cosmetic differences which are Clubsport rear spoiler (mine actually has the msport bootlid as standard), front bumper splitters (also does not have), different shape of side skirts, Clubsport logo on the door kick panels, removed sound deadening on the bonnet for better sound and weight reduction, options for better/different paint colours (usually estoril blue or velvet blue, mine is carbon black which is the e46 m3 colour over standard cosmos black) and also the 3D cube interior trim. 

Mine also has a tyre pressure monitor, automatic headlights, facelift led taillights and longer bootlid trim on the boot handle as opposed to standard taillights and shorter bootlid handle trim. 

All in all very minor differences oh and also they came with Clubsport specific wheels which were either the style 135 or another dished type can't remember the code.

It's just a msport with fancy pants basically.

It's just 5% more special than the run of the mill msport but nothign world changing.

Indeed, your Dad was scoping mine on Friday, asking about clearance/rubbing... 😀
I'm biased of couse!  I think they're a great match on the e46; aesthetically they look good, and technically there's no rubbing/clearance issues, 20mm wider track across the rear axle (over style 68 staggered), and half inch wider rim on the front.  Of course, lows may be a different game!

Absolutely right. Much better/wider track compared to the very high offset style 68's.

Also being 17 it gives plenty of profile on the tyres. Currently running 225 45 17 front and 255 40 17 rear and feels amazing to drive. 

Really shouldnt sell it...

Had two parties view both wanted to buy it but one couldn’t get enough finance and other waiting on insurance payout. Worth the asking price for sure so no thanks to your 5k offer

How about starting a thread on your M3 - I would love to see it.

And also your ford escort - I built a 1976 rs2000 replica as my first car.

That might be a more constructive way of introducing yourself.

S768A Individual series "Clubsport" - clearly mentioned in VIN build sheet

The rear wing not being the standard clubsport model is also correct as per VIN:

http://bmwfans.info/parts-catalog/E46-Coupe/Europe/325Ci-M54/R-N/may2005/browse/vehicle_trim/rear_spoiler/

If it had the clubsport rear wing then it would have this in the build sheet: "S754A M Rear spoiler" (like it had on my old velvet blue clubsport 330ci)
