330 zhp 2003



I'm at the point to sell or keep her. Love this car, she just hit 200k and is now in the market for a new clutch. I've maintained the car since I bought it 5 years ago, but there is wear and tear. Now I'm at the point where I need to decide if to keep or sell. I would love to hear some opinions on this.

I still have my 2002 325ci with 230k km. I keep thinking of getting rid of it but newer cars don't appeal much to me (larger, heavier, uglier styling) The only thing it could use is more power.

I'm surprised you still have it! I figured you would have went for a newer 3'er by now... but you're right the E46 really is a great platform. Quick enough but still light and nimble (by modern standards) and fairly easy on the wallet.

I feel the same about my 2006 330i @246k. I'd like something newer and quicker, but this is quick enough and too reliable to get rid of so I'm just going to drive it until it starts falling apart or getting to expensive to maintain... neither of which are on the horizon at the moment lol

LOL, yea. I'm kind of waiting for it to blow up, but it hasn't yet. I barely do any maintenance on it anymore but it keeps on going. All I really need to fix is the exhaust gasket and bolts that have rusted away between the downpipe and centre section.
