    2001 OGMII 325xit Touring, Sport, Cold Weather, AT, 177k

    Hey guys, it's been a minute! Asking $2,300 OBO.

    I am looking to sell my trusty 2001 E46 wagon. I am the second owner, and have had the car since June 2011. The original owner was an older woman who had the car serviced at BMW of Peabody. Looking to sell since it is underutilized, and we need some space back! Daily driven until September of 2017 - decided to move into the Subaru world. Since then it has been reliably performing fill-in duty, when necessary.


    The Car:

    2001 BMW 325xit
    177,217 miles
    2.5 liter inline 6 (M54B25)
    Automatic (Steptronic)
    Sports package
    Premium package
    Cold weather package
    "Oxford green metallic" paint
    "Sand Montana" leather
    Park Distance Control (PDC)
    Xenon headlights
    Harmon Kardon stereo
    Yokohama tires on 17 inch BMW style 73 wheels
    Power seats with memory and adjustable thigh support
    Memory mirrors with reverse-tilt feature
    Auto-dim mirror
    Home-link system

    Condition (full disclosure here!):

    Has typical E46 rust. Reference the images below. Notable areas include the right rear wheel arch, hatch under the window, and front passenger’s side door sill. Minor spots on the driver’s side arch and door sill. Nothing structural or particularly nasty/poking through
    Minor dents and dings. The paint is a lovely color and is very presentable and shiny, but there are dings and some scratches, although nothing major or really noticeable at first glance
    Wheels have some curb rash on the outer lips
    Sagging A pillar fabric (another common E46 issues)
    Blower motor is currently INOP. Climate control works fine, the blower motor itself is not working. This is likely the infamous BMW FSR/FSU issue – haven’t had time to take a deep dive into it
    Driver’s door lock actuator needs to be replaced – I have the parts and will include with the sale – again, haven’t had time to dig into it
    One of the pulleys needs to replaced. It makes an intermittent whining noise, and I have narrowed it down to a pulley or tensioner, but haven’t gone in to service it.

    Interior is in good shape (8/10) The back seats and most plastics look they have never been used! Leather on the driver's seat shows some wea - no rips or tears anywhere.
    Car feels tight, revs smoothly, and tracks straight


    Completely refreshed rear suspension – new bushings, shocks, and springs
    Polyurethane (PowerFlex) front control arm bushings
    New inner and outer front ball joints (replaceable E36 M3 outers - spare included)
    Expansion tank / upper radiator hose replaced
    Stainless brake lines
    DISA gasket
    VANOS seals replaced
    OFHG replaced
    Sunroof shade rails/sliders replaced
    Window regulators fixed/replaced (3/4: passenger rear yet to go)

    Parts Included:

    OEM cargo shade/pet barrier
    OEM set of four steel winter wheels and Continental tires with hubcaps
    OEM roof rails with Thule racks and snowboard carriers. Unfortunately, I do not have the keys to the locks (no, not stolen!)
    Set of black OEM rubber mats
    Set of tan OEM carpeted mats
    Set of tan OEM rubber mats
    Spare front outer ball joint (M3)
    Driver’s door lock actuator
    I might have more, there’s a big box of stuff in the basement!

    I firmly believe I have represented this vehicle to the best of my ability - happy shopping!

    Excellent deal given the rust issues. Thanks for providing such a detailed post. It looks like the cover model for a 1999 e46 intro ad.
