History
First registered March 2005. Among the last E46 shape 3-series to be registered in UK, as E90 models were already being sold with 4-cyl engines at the same time. Pre-registered by dealer in Kent and used as dealer exec transport for 15,000 miles.

4 subsequent owners prior to myself. Purchased April 2015 from Oakwood Specialist Cars in Whitley Bay. Having covered just 9000 miles in 3 years with 5th owner and only 112 in previous 12 months.

Serviced according to manufacturer's recommendation for first 95,000 miles, then every 8-9000 miles thereafter.

204bhp version of 6-cyl M57N diesel engine with 6-speed manual gearbox. Ultra smooth torque delivery fit to pull tree stumps with. 2000 rpm in 6th = 80mph actual road speed. Classic motorway mile muncher with decent B-road or track day handling in one compact package!
