used car of the day 2002 bmw 330i

Remember when the BMW 3-Series was considered the almost perfect sports sedan? Pepperidge Farm remembers. And so do I. This E46 2002 BMW 330i is also a reminder.

It has just over 130K miles on it, and the seller is asking for $15,250. It's a manual and the seller has owned it for 10 years and is now looking to off-load it due to "life changes." We've all been there, I think.

The owner added the turbo a few years ago and says its E85 compatible. He or she has all the maintenance documents available. Same for the documentation of the turbo build.

It's a California car. Go check it out here.

    Boy, what a rolling disaster this thing likely is.

    Which is a pity. I had a 2002 330ci when it was new, black sapphire metallic over tan leather, and it is by far my favorite car that I've ever owned to this day.

    For the next three weeks: Price is firm! Three weeks after that: Price lowered! and 28 more pictures. Three weeks after that: Price on a for sale sign and a note: trades considered. Three weeks after that: Must Sell $ 6000.00 OBO. Three weeks after that: Jr's dad pays 4k cash. New driver dings and scrapes? Doesn't matter a whit. Any repair over $800? It goes to the junkyard. Jr will be the last but very proud owner of this BMW.

  • Jeff S Vulpine--True the CAFE rules are for ICE.
  • Gray I grew up in the era of Panther and Fox platforms. If only they developed a good looking two door Conti. The four doors became a cult in their own right. And kept the 351W as a top line option.
  • Vulpine ABSOLUTELY YES!!! Bring back the TRUE compact trucks. The demand for them is far higher than the OEMs want to admit.
  • Brn More likely, with Google having troubles, the money tree isn't as ripe as it once was and cutbacks are needed.I hope the overall industry continues to evolve. When I get the the point I can't easily drive, I would still appreciate the independence that autonomous vehicles can bring.
  • Vulpine There's bakkies and there's Bakkies... One where the passenger area is larger than the load bed is NOT a Bakkie.
