I am forcibly selling this car to purchase a home.
I'll try to keep it as short as possible in an attempt to include all info about the car.
2001 Topaz Blue Metallic BMW 330i - 5-speed Manual
Black leather interior
Heated steering wheel
Self leveling Xenon headlights
I am the second owner. First owner was a middle aged doctor. I bought the car through a friend of mine (who owns a body shop) at the auction about 6 months ago, it was involved in a VERY minor collision with NO cars involved. The car hit a larger than normal curb trying to avoid hitting another car.
I really liked the condition of the car and simply had to bring her back to life. I couldn't believe this car was being salvaged).
Absolutely NO FRAME DAMAGE or any structural issues.
The only parts that were damaged:
- Front passenger side lower control arm (car hit the curb, bent the lower control arm) and Control Arm bushing casing was bent
- Front pass side fender
- Front bumper (including pass side foglight)
Hood, Headlights, Rad Support were not damaged at all!
I have spent 6 weeks working on this car with some help from my friend, who did the body work in his body shop with the intention of keeping it for a long time, and have not cut any corners. everything was done RIGHT with OEM parts, clips, nuts, fluids.
I know some of you may still be skeptical but this is not the typical "rebuilt" car and I hope she will find the right home.

OEM Front Bumper
OEM Front Fender
OEM Fog Light

The not so good
Needs pass side bumper trim and rear pass side door sill.
Driver's seat upper bolster (left side) has some wear (forgot to take a pic of that area - will update)
The windshield had a crack in it prior to the accident - I have replaced it with a new top of the line one.
I decided to paint all panels (except roof and trunk lid) to freshen up the car and take care of some dings and scratches here and there.
Hood, Bumpers, Fenders were painted OFF the car.
All trim was disassembled prior to paint.
Roof and Trunk lid were not painted and match perfectly. (could use a buff, didn't get to it yet)
The car looks great and drives amazing!
If you are in the market for an e46, I urge you to come and have a look.
I have pictures, Structural inspection papers, safety certificate, CARFAX, e-test.
One previous owner, 105,xxx kms on her now (bought with 93,xxxkms)
Car was recently detailed
I am pricing the car to sell fast, PLEASE, no lowballing.
Yes, I know you can buy an 02 330 ci with 160-200k for $12k, but consider the suspension and wheels which are new.
I have spent a lot of time and money to make it near perfect. Nothing was spared.
Asking $10,500 With Everything, OBO
If I am unreasonable with the price, please explain why.
No Trades please- need cash for a down payment
Price can be negotiated without the RIAL wheels. (these are $3000 wheels, with Brand New tires)
Sorry for the long post
I will update if I remember more
Any questions please contact me
