Default 2005 330ci convertable

Hey all
Been a while. Just got back from throwing a deposit down on this as a 3rd car.

http://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-s...92625195&Log=0

I think I really got a good deal on it($8990), as the the kbb fair retail is 10,230

http://www.kbb.com/bmw/3-series/2005...icetype=retail

I have never owned a e46 before, any reason I should be running away?
It was really fun to drive and seems in pretty good shape.

Mostly will be for my top down cruising and I also plan to put a hitch on it to transport my bikes for road and mountain biking (there is no Hitch option for my 750) I was going to buy a older x5 but my wife and daughter kept requesting a convertible :-)

so any e46'ers have any input?

Great platform. Be mindful of the cooling system. Other than that change the fluids and enjoy the drive!

Thanks! I have been doing some reading and have found similar comments . I plan to take it to foreign exchange and have them take a look at it and do the standard inspection with a focus on the cooling system

Looks good.
The only real vert specific "issue" we have had with our E46 convertibles is the latch assemblies (where the top meets the windshield) and a broken wire at the 1st bend of the top.

Enjoy.
