Garage kept 2004 BMW 330Ci in Orient Blue Metallic over Black leather interior. This car has both the Sport and Premium packages as well as the 6 speed manual transmission. Currently has about 140,000 miles on it but looks and drives great. With 225 HP the 330 has over 40 horsepower more than the 325 with no fuel economy penalty so it is well worth the premium. The inline six is incredibly smooth with lots of torque and sounds great running up to the redline. Or set the cruise at 70 and get 30 MPG. 2004 was the first year of the "facelift" for the 2 doors that brought an updated front end (bumper, headlights, and grill) as well as LED taillights and most importantly a 6th gear for the transmission. There were no significant changes for 2005 or 2006.
The car has been very well maintained with Mobil 1 oil changes every 7500 miles When I purchased this car 4 years ago I preventatively overhauled the cooling system so no worries there. No lights on the dash and everything works as it should. Car has normal wear and tear for the age but overall presents very well. The biggest flaw is the interior convertible top on the driver's side C pillar is broken. This is a common issue and they sell a repair kit for around $100. The plastic piece that breaks has been removed and it can't damage the top, so I haven't been in any hurry to fix it as it causes no functional problems. I have all service records going back to around 35,000 miles. Airbag recall just completed at BMW of Sarasota.
This has one of the best cars I've ever owned but since having kids I only end up driving it 2x a week. There aren't many E46 convertibles with a proper manual transmission so it is time to give someone else a chance to enjoy this as much as we have. Open to interesting trades that have a manual transmission, especially if it has 4 doors and 400+ horsepower. Asking $8,000 OBO, please call or text Adam at 609-576-966niner for more details. Happy to assist with shipping arrangements.
