just want some advice
What exactly would you like to know? I have an e46 328 but may be able to help you
drop me a line i may be able to help you/point you in the right direction
I have a 2001 e46 330ci conv, its pretty similar to the M3, its been a cracking machine, servince intervals are wide and servicing costs have been very low £150 1st one , £250 2nd one ; its just clicked over 50,000miles,
Solid build quality, no problems apart from the wiper fluid container now leaks.
All the write-ups speak highly of them, hold money well..
Any specific questions? I'll try and help..
As I told Julian in pm the main problem is the faulty rear subframes on pre 2004 bmws

They have a very high break in period, something like 5,000 miles before you can really give it some whelly. If you can find one that belonged to a pensioner you'll be ok.
My 330ci cab had alot of engine trouble after only 4,000 miles. Only kept it 8 months and got shot of it. Its an ok car but very common.
run in on an m3 is 3000km
Thats still stupidly high considering M3 drivers fall into one category
I had to wait 6 weeks for a test drive as they dont allow cars that had not been broken in to be test driven.
