We get it, SUVs are all the rage right now, but if you’re in the market for a used vehicle that’s both practical and fun to drive, maybe you should take a look at this 2001 BMW E46 325i Touring.
The car, which is powered by a 2.5-liter inline-six with 184 hp mated to a five-speed manual transmission, is located in Santa Barbara, California and is available through Bring A Trailer at no reserve. It comes with receipts, service records, factory literature, a host of aftermarket parts, a clean Carfax report, and a clean California title.
The bodywork is painted in Steel Gray Metallic complete with shadowline trim and M-Tech II bumpers and side skirts, while the seller has also fitted Depo projector headlights with halo rings and smoked market lights. Other exterior modifications made include gloss black grilles, ceramic window tint, M3-style wing mirrors, carbon fiber splitters, a roof rack, and black badging.
Elsewhere, the Beemer includes 19-inch BBS LM wheels with BBS lug nuts and wrapped in 245/35 Hankook Ventus Evo2 tires at the front and Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ at the rear. The car also features Zimmerman drilled rotors and black brake calipers, as well as H&R Cup springs and Bilstein shocks.
While this 325i Touring has 228,000 miles on the clock, both the exterior and interior look to be in good condition.
