A Grand Monday: BMW E46 325Ci

Published 19 August 2019

If you’re looking for something both cool and stylish then we don’t think you can go far wrong with today's classified star.

This 2001 BMW E46 325Ci turned plenty of heads when we spotted it. With 190bhp, 0-60mph in seven seconds and a top speed of a shade under 150mph, the BMW 325Ci is a fine performance coupe that was very highly regarded in its day as well as being one that acquits itself well today, with a fabulous chassis, smooth straight-six and terrific steering.

At £645, this 2001 example looks like an absolute bargain, even if it has covered 215,000 miles. BMW’s big sixes are more than good for it - if properly maintained - and this example clearly has been, with a full service history. It has also had a recent full service and new discs and pads, along with recent new tyres.

The owner is open about its faults - a few scuffs, the usual E46 front wheel arch corrosion and a problematic trip computer stalk being the main points. On the plus side, it has 11 months’ MoT, working air-con a BMW’s excellent Harman-Kardon stereo system. 

We can’t see it hanging around for long at this price.
