but I can't afford the e90! Or do you mean the e46 prices will drop when the e90's come out?

example: when you buy a e46 for like 25.000 and the e90 comes out next year your car looses much of his value because it's official the 'old' model..

60 000 for a 2002 330i?? that seems highly overpriced, actually it is highly overpriced.

or is this the mileage???

there are 2002 330 M packages Coupes selling for under 40

i've noticed the prices of the E46 have dropped tremendously aready due to the oncoming arrival of the E90

320 - Don't even think about it. Missing many features you will want over time.

325i - Try to find yourself a 2002 325i. I think best bang for the buck if you buy with sports package. New facelift, and many standard features over 2001 325i.

330i - is the clear choice in your survey but I suggest you keep looking. Good luck.
