Interior: black leather
Transmission: 5-spd manual
I acquired this in 2016 to be the all arounder, a car I don’t mind putting miles on, running through awful MN winters, and sitting outside the garage in the summers to give other fun cars a full year garage spot.
The car is a sport, premium, xenons, 5spd 2004 325xi touring with 109k miles when I bought it. I bought it despite the crappy used car dealer it was at and warning signs to find something better. Hell, we can’t be choosy when looking for a 325xi touring 5spd and also I had the great input of those on the E46 fanatics forum and well documented FAQs.
First I had to do new front brakes, fix a leaking oil filter housing and bad oil level sensor, ac recharge, and look at a driveline shake that was a symptom of needing new front axles. The car also came with mismatched tires. New Dunlops went on to correct that.
