2005 Bmw 330cd msport
This was my daily car doing a 200+ mile round trip to the office. But with covid it is not getting used as much and I now need something more practical for getting a baby seat in and out of.
These are rare cars and with the price of M3s so high, 330i and 330d cars have become very desirable as a good alternative.
The spec of the car is as follows.
05 e46 330cd msport
18” genuine mv2 alloys - front tyres nearly new, rear tyres approximately 50%
Xenon headlights with pop out washers
Grey leather interior
Electric memory msport seats
Sat nav with 2019 maps
Analog tv tuner (original bmw)
6 cd changer with additional single disc behind the tv screen
Kardon Harmon sound system.
Front and rear arm rests
Folding rear seats
Ski hatch and bag
Flat tyre indication
Led rear lights
Genuine Bmw roof bars can be added if required.
It done not have full service history but has loads of receipts for work done and parts purchased. During my ownership most of the supsension/brakes/cooling system has been replaced. Recently the rear steel brake lines and pads were replaced.
Now for the bad points, It is a 2005 with 200+ miles on the clock so it does have wear and tear. It has aged better than most but would benefit from a tidy up depending how picky you are.
Like most e46s it is starting to get rust bubbles on the arches and a few other typical e46 areas. It was never an issue in the nct but would better sort if you are planning to keep it long term.
It comes with a spare key but recently, the remote central locking part stopped working. Works fine with the other key.
Rear parking sensors occasionally fault. Probably one sensor starting to go.
If I had the time and space I would keep it as they are a lovely driver’s car that are appreciating quickly. They rarely come up for sale in Ireland. I haven’t seen another in the country with this high of a spec. I believe it is priced fairly so no low ball offers because you want to convert it into a drift car.
May part exchange for an early f10/f11, f30/31 or late e90/e91 e60/e61 520d/530d 320d
