Good input everybody. Thank you very much! Now I just need to sell my car so I can make this happen!

I just bought my e46 330ci a week and a half ago, had lots of issues, but, I got the parts and did all the work myself with a buddy's help, if you have patience and with the help of the board members it was not hard at all,

Mine came with Sports and Premium pkg, leather seats could be cleaner but will work on that.

best thing is, go drive a 325 and then a 330, you'll make your own mind up.

Thanks and I hope to be part of the family soon!

Scott, I would honestly go for 2004 and up... 01 and 02 had some substantial extra issues that were stopped in the later 2003...but get the 2004 to be sure ha
