PostSubject: My dream came true - new car :)   Sun 28 Feb 2016 - 23:32

I used to have a BMW e36 323i (2.5 petrol straight six), but unfortunately I had to sell him half a year ago. However, I always knew that the best car I could possibly imagine is e46 330i Touring. That is (at least from my point of view) the pinnacle of car industry, the best combination of old school engine and drivetrain, combined with modern safety features and design. I was looking for one since I sold "The old guy". Five months of searching on Czech, Polish and mostly German web pages, dozens of phone calls and six trips to see a car only to find out that it's a piece of junk. Some relatively nice cars got away, as e46 Touring with manual transmission and rear wheel drive usually disappear within 24 hours after it shows up on the web (unlike automatic and four wheel drive). And on Tuesday afternoon it finally happened. I found THE one, immediately called to Germany, within three hours i had the money and at 11pm we were leaving for a 650km trip to DE. It was a love at first sight, it's better than I ever imagined it could be. It's in an incredible condition, it looks like it drove through some kind of time gate Wink A 2004 BMW 330i Touring, 3.0 liter petrol straight 6 with 231hp, 6 speed manual gearbox, rear wheel drive, original factory M-packet, Individual trim with pretty much all extras, heated full leather seats, Harman Kardon sound system... I'm so excited! I really hope that nothing wrong happens and I'll keep it, well, pretty much forever, as I'm really disappointed by the direction of car industry during the last decade. This is one of the last Mohycanes, one of the last true driver's cars with proper engine and not too much electronics interfering driver inputs. It was a long and desperate way, but I'm so glad that I waited long enough to finaly find this extraordinary machine :conduit:
