2001 E46 330i manual!! 4 door

Recommended Posts

So I am selling my 330i . I have two elderly e30s to look after and my missus mainly drives this e46.  She hates white cars (its white) but doesn’t appreciate the mechanical superiority so I have decided she doesn’t deserve it and have bought her a 1500cc Mazda Axela 

I bought this otherwise well looked after car with a blown engine and purchased what has turned out to be a gem from EUROREC here in CHCH. I replaced:

# the sump and cam cover gaskets

# water pump

# biesen seals in vanos

# exhaust gaskets

# water pump

# overflow tank

# the crank case vent stuff

# some of the water hoses

# red stuff brake pads 

its a South African import and is in very nice condition. The body has a smidge over 200000 on the clock and the engine was a 150000 or so (I will check but it’s tight)

i put the m sport style 68 wheels on which I restored and were mint until my missus curbed them a little. I will redo this so they will be mint for the buyer. 

Pilot sport 4 tyres less than a year old

more photos to come

$8000

Well I think I’m going to expand the market and pop this gem on trademe. I’ve been cleaning it up over the past couple of nights and it really is very tidy and presents beautifully, carpets , seats etc all cleaned up and are lovely. Does anyone feel I’m in the ballpark price wise?

I think price wise your pretty spot on tbh. Looks a minter and would definitely pay that if I didnt have the dirty thirty.

I know one man’s mint is another man’s sh*t box but It really is a minter. 

Ive been tidying my missuses detritus out of it and cleaning up the interior and it’s bloody great.

Okay, I refuse to drop my price any more and I’m cured of the preciousness I felt towards this car so i sold the recently purchased Mazda a this one ain’t for sale Any more. She’s the daily hack again.  I don’t know where all those Beemerphiles who said I’d easily get 7.5 - 8k for it were when I actually listed it 😄

It's easy to speculate when it's not your money. If yours is worth $8k then the E91 I've just listed on here must be worth at least nine, probably ten - which is where I'll pitch it if I do advertise it more broadly.

The market has spoken .... mine is not even worth 7k. It was the manual thing that makes it, otherwise it’s a white sedan. I loooove driving it so it stays if it’s only a 6k car

Its very hard to judge/determine the "value" of a car or what its "worth" because it is always subjective.

I think in this particular example, its better off keeping it because you probably wont be able to sell it for more than 6k and the enjoyment you get from driving it is "worth" at least that much.

Agreed. It’s nice to be back in it. The Mazda was fine but the doors don’t close the same and can’t beat that sweet beemer 6! Also, beemers appeal to my enthusiast diy nature. I had to pay someone to scan my airbag system on the Mazda but I’ve got my own airbag scan tool for the beemer off Ali express for small change - couldn’t find one for Mazda
