The Car
Take one look at the convertible and you appreciate the trouble BMW took
to make the E46 convertible lower, wider and longer with a more steeply raked
windscreen. It is from every angle nothing less than a stunning exceptional
vehicle. This, a fantastic genuine specimen sporting the correct desirable
options insuring long term solid residuals. The models secret lies in its
rigid quality structure that makes it near impossible to determine the
difference between this & four door coupe motoring. This is the final incarnation
of the E46 model falling on an 06 plate, these cars have now stopped depreciating
and are becoming rather sought after. A great investment modern classic.

Look/Drive
Note the keen aggressive looks of the factory M specced car. This facelifted
model features the broader kidney grill and the higher setting of the
indicators to the front wings. Deeper & broader front and rear bumpers,
fully de chromed & revised side skirts. Lightweight 18 inch rims, bigger
more powerful brakes and the main event being the M suspension and dynamic
stability control, the M sport models also have a tuned exhaust.

Performance - Why the 330?
Performance alone is mere figures and don't do justice to the creaminess
of the throttle response, the flexibility of the engine nor the brilliant
balancing of all the major controls. Over 90% of its torque is available
from as low as 1,500rpm, making this an extremely effective cross country
tool. The note from the car exhaust is a muted deep rumble of power.
Predictably impressive sixty arrives occupying just under 7 secs and a top
speed in excess of 150 mph. The cars electronics constantly monitor its
pitch and yaw making this 231bhp rear wheel drive sports car safer on a
wet road than almost all other cars. Strong on economy will return easily
35mpg on the run as lots of power doing little work and wont harm your
pocket.

The Party Piece
A clever piece of kit as well. Should the Automatic traction control and
stability systems included as standard not be enough to prevent the car
flipping over, strong steel beams instantly shoot out from behind the rear
head restraints to protect the occupants skulls. When folded, the hood sits
neatly under a metal cover. Redesigned front seats, unique to the convertible,
incorporate the seatbelts into their structure, rather than attaching them
separately to the car body. The triple-layer hood itself has a padded lining
to reduce wind noise and there is a proper glass rear window, with demister,
in place of the old easily scratched plastic pane that plagues so many soft
tops. The BMW 3 Series Convertible is the best in the business.

What Sets It Apart?
This is a very highly specified model from the factory that specced cost
in excess of 35000 pounds when you add up all the cost options. To this
end as a used buy it represents exceptional value for money with little
pain to be with depreciation, its done all its going to do.

Condition
Cosmetically as the pictures bear testament to it is in excellent glossy
order given its few years, with no negatives i.e no dings dents or scratches
and little in the way of anything you could point your finger at, looks
far younger than its years. The paint is superb with a wet look finish
thanks to some intensive detailing with Meguiars products. The condition
of this car is way above average for miles it has covered and without any
stretch of the imagination it is in excellent used condition. Genuinely looks
& drives half the mileage. The cabin in particular remains very box fresh
with very clean leathers which will should suit even the fussiest of tastes,
the drivers seat is very straight as pictured, the rear and boot area barely
used. Everything in full working order. The engine bay is as new and all four
arches - a common area for rust, are blemish free.

Servicing & Other Information - 8 Stamps - Thick file of Bills
The manuals are all intact within the leather wallet and an impressive
amount of service bills corroborating the service stamps. Original service
book present detailing 8 service stamps plus pdi. Nothing appears to be
outstanding. Drives utterly without fault with a real gem of an engine.

Wheels & Tyres
Proper genuine lightweight MV 2 rims, not cheap heavy poorly balanced
imitations that compromise the ride. The tyres are all recent matching
Michelins with thick tread, the alloys are completely original and blemish
free.
