BMW 3 series m-sport touring 325i manual I have owned this car for about 2 years. It drives fantastic. Has recently had £1000+ of work done, including upgraded M3 engine and gearbox mounts, valve cover gasket, oil filter housing gasket and the sump gasket, meaning that this engine does not leak oil, making it rare amongst e46's. Bigger 330i front brakes fitted. Pirelli P zero tyres all round. 225 fronts, 255 rears. New water pump and mishimoto low temp themostat fitted. Most importantly it has had the oil pump nut safety wired when the sump gasket was replaced as these engines have been known to back the oil pump nut off resulting in no oil pressure and ultimately engine failure. This car really does drive great. Just flew threw its MOT. It has been a great car for the past 2 years, I was ultimately planning on stripping it out and tracking it, so I wanted it in great mechanical condition before this. I have however had a slight change of heart and I think this car could be a really nice example with a little bit of attention on the bodywork. The only thing I think lets it down is the offside rear wheel arch has had what I assume was a diy rust repair at some point (not in my ownership). Can be seen in the pictures. The rust is creeping back through (shown in the pictures) but it is really not as bad as a lot of e46's I have seen. I was quoted £150 to repair it last year but I never got round to it. If it doesn't sell then I guess its destined for the race track. I do already have a welded diff for it which has never been fitted and can be sold with the car if so desired. Message me if you would like more details.
