    Schwarzbär

    Acquired my new daily driver a few days ago. It is a 2005 325it.

    I have looked off and on for an e46 touring with a manual transmission for about 5 years. Finding this one at this time was serendipitous. It was local, one owner, full documentation and repair history, 81k on the clock. It has a few blemishes, but nothing I can't fix.

    The manny tranny wagons are rare, especially in 2wd, and die-hard enthusiasts will cross the country to get them.

    Plans are fluid, but right now I admit it is reeeeeeaaaaaly nice to have a comfortable car to commute in. I have forgotten how smooth the modern DOHC L6 BMW engines are.

    My wife is a little jealous of the car, but she took solace when I told her the IS300 Sportcross she drives is probably faster. . Still not sure how she agreed to me buying another BMW, but it happened!

    I don't think that's a shooting brake. I think someone sold you an old fogy station wagon.

    Speaking of old fogies, get yer eyes checked. It's not your Buick Roadmaster.

    My father's third car, and the second one since I was born was a E34 520, and it was my favorite.

    This looks really nice, and I LOVE the name.

    Congratulations! Looks and sounds to be a great Touring!

    I miss my e46 wagon 5 speed dearly! I traveled from CA to IL when I located mine. That was in 2006! Sadly I sold it, and replaced it with a e91 a few years later (auto ) It's not the same.

    Look forward to reading your future posts.

    The e46fanatics site has much love for the Touring, at least back when I used to frequent.

    Cheers!

    Cool car. My wife (then girlfriend) used to have a E46 325i sedan with that same interior. A lot of them are pretty beat these days so it's rare to find a good one, let alone a manual wagon. Congrats.

    Nothing in that collage was a Wagon with full blown E46 touring car body work and livery, can't imagine why not...
