This car seems to be the ultimate shitbox for all the "car enthusiasts" out there.
People drool over these and I just don't get it. It was a cheap economy car new, and that's all it is now, just old. People say they look amazing, but they just don't.
I do like the coupe and convertible, but this isn't that. In principle, it is similar to spending $90,000 for a Bugatti replica, even though for that same amount you could have gotten a great car.
The E46 is the epitome of all BMW Driver's cars. These pieces of shit and their gay frat boi drivers are the ones that swerve though traffic and act "rich" because they drive a 20 year old BMW.
Ooooh god damn I despise the hunks of garbage. Hate hate hate. They are like so vapid. Why on earth would you willingly drive one?? The seller says it was bought from his neighbor, who bought it in 2003....but this is 2000 model year. So yeah. Zero redemption. I mean the original owner would've already been poor- I mean they drove a base 3 series. Then the 2nd owner, who comes off as an idiot, and the 3rd, who is 100% an idiot.
Speaking of bad decisions, this dumbass also has a base LR3, which is somehow a WORSE choice than this thing.
Similar to the cars, the house looks so awful. I mean when that sucker was new it was a piece of shit. A tiny, cheap, dated, ugly, poorly built box of fake luxury
AND he listed it for $4500. I wouldn't pay 1/10 of that for this. AND it has over 160,000 miles. Sure seems like you "cared" for it... He pretends to be knowledgeable about these (again, "car enthusiast") but he isn't even capable of doing any work on the car himself. So now he's an incapable dumbass too. I'd expect nothing less from an e46 owner.
Perhaps the most hysterical thing is he thinks it is top of the line! No dear, we call this the cheapskate model. I don't even think it has leather!! Only my refined sense of touch could discern the difference between disgusting sensatec and real leather.
So it's an old, expensive to own, vapid econobox with high mileage, probably poorly maintained, uncomfortable model with 3 too many owners. Oh yeah, and it's a manual!! I love how people deliberately make themselves miserable like that
