i wonder if the newer MY last as long as the old ones? only time will tell. i suspect that with the new paint technology rust will be an unlikely problem. the electricals will probably fail long before the body starts to rust.

oh...before i sold the e46 - 155k km...nothing really for a 8+ year old car.

2002.2 325xi 167,860 km. Lots of trips to Ottawa!

New alternator, thermostat, coolant expansion tank. Original everything else + wear & tear.

Summer plans: bleed brakes (Motul RBF600), replace ATF, replace VANOS seals.
