I have a 1992 318i with 325K miles on it, I have loved this car for many years.

My son needs a car and would like to take mine so I can upgrade.

I am looking for some advice on what to look for on the E46 line such as servicibility and chronic problems. I can justify owning a BMW because I have been able to service most everything myself. Is this true with E46 such as auto transmission? I am looking at a 2000 323i with auto.

Any suggestions are welcome.

thanks,

Kurt

subframe recal.

robert1700 had a 2001 m3 for a summer and his subframe was completely rebuilt by bmw (and gave him a loaner) apparantly they can fall apart...(remember the e36 issues).

otherwise, i think the laguna blue is the best color and alloy trim is the rarest option...people will beg you for it when they see it...iguess
