It’s rare to come across such a low mileage well cared for car, I am the 4th owner of the car it was originally owned by a doctor who unfortunately died and his wife took the car on until it was sold to a director of a car company who I bought the car off.  The mileage is genuine and all verified with a stack of history, I have everything with the car, 2 keys, the key template, bill of sale all service books, leaflets absolutely everything including the full spec list from factory of what the car has, it’s the most comprehensive service history you can get with any car. The car drives perfectly and it’s by far the best e46 I’ve ever driven, no knocks or bangs and the suspension rides, brakes stops and goes as it should from the factory. 


The 3 litre straight six is very well maintained by a specialist in Warrington I trust and has been given a complete clean bill of health, in my ownership the car has used no oil at all and runs very well which I would expected given the very low mileage, pulls well and VANOS kicks in correctly.


Lovely Topaz blue original colour, the car has some scratches and stone chips to be expected with its age but no dents and absolutely no rust at all, particularly on both front and back arches, the rear arches have been treated as preventative maintenance and are in lovely condition.  The paint is completely original and hasn’t had any resprays and work carried out.


The leather is BMW Individual Yellow Mosaic leather, I had my reservations about yellow leather but it really does work with the interior and black carbon trim.  The interior is in very good condition a few light scratches to some of the interior panels but amazing for its age, the leather is in excellent condition as well.



Are in excellent condition, lots of meat left of the pads and discs look fine, the car stops well, suspension is as it should be rides brilliantly with no noises and creaking even lock to lock.


Recently refurbished genuine MV1’s wheels in almost perfect condition the tyres are brand new on the front and 2 years old on the rear but covered less than 3k miles, 6-7mm of tread remaining. Brakes have lots of life left on them and work as they should. Correctly staggered setup with the 255 rear section.


The car is maintained by a BMW specialist I am very particular who I get to see looking at the car and they are experts with it and have given the car a clean bill of health in all aspects.

I am very sad to see the car go but I have a new job which requires me to drive long distances, it’s a waste to use this beautiful low mileage car for this job so I need something more fitting to travelling distances.

I’m not sure many E46’s will ever be classics apart from M3’s but I do believe this car will appreciate being the 330Ci
