Hi,

Been lurking around the forums for a while, have always been a BMW Fan. My all time favourite car E46M3...cant afford right now.
Anyway, i hoping to pick up a 325/328CI. Ive been to a couple of dealerships around TO but have not found what im looking for yet.

What I want is: a Topaz Blue 3, Black or Tan interior, Low KMS(under 40K) Not too concerned with Sports package as i will be changing suspension anyways.

Anyonw who has any leads let me know.

Is there anything else I should know about buying a 325CI?

Hey. First off, good choice with the cars! BUT I would recommend getting the sport package, not just for the rims/suspension, but the much nicer steering wheel and the sport seats...........I totally regret not getting it on my car. Anyways check www.autotrader.ca and see what you can find. Cheers,

Brad

I know you want less KMS but this is a sick car. It has the M package and a Hamann lip kit on it...... here is the link

That's no Hamann, its the BMW aero package.

I keep saying it and I know some are getting sick of it, but the best non-M E46 made was the 328Ci. Get one of those.

Ask around on the 2 links under my sig.
You may find something you like.

The only 2 benifits I see from the 328 are the mechanical throttle linkage and the stiffer steering response. Make sure to check that all the recalls have been fixed on any 2000 and lower model year cars.
