3 yr or 120,000km i think

but bmw has an extended warrenty, im not sure if that can be purshcsed once the original warrenty runs out, or has to be bought at the time of the car, but thats 6 years

Warranty is 4 years (dont recall milleage)
Full maintenance is 3 years

daytona: consider the fact that the E90 is coming out in MAY....so 2 months reaming....the prices of the E46 will / are depreciating VERY FAST...
hence the reason for selling this car..

Thats exactly why Im waiting until July to make the purchase...hopefully to get prime E46 for a drastically reduced sales......

no the engine in the current E46 330 will be de-tuned and placed in the 325i E90 and a new engine with 258hp will be put in the new 330 E90
