About 106K miles, all stock except as noted, asking $13K...
When I bought it in 2014:

Thinking of selling my E46 as I've got to thin the herd of 3 racecars and 5 street cars. I use it as an occasional DD about once or twice a week (never tracked) along with my MSM and my GMC truck. I was thinking of modifying it towards some track use but the MSM and racecars fills that duty.

Under my ownership I have completed a full brake job (Brembo rotors & pads), valve adjustment, a Turner rear subframe reinforcement along with solid subframe bushings and ECS poly diff mounts. Also did the driveshaft guibo and rebuilt the shifter with an F90 gearshift to shorten the throw (I have the original). Also have done oil changes with the OEM Castrol at about 8K intervals.

Car has the original door dings and rear bumper scuff that were on it when I got it. The few things that need work is the sunroof shade slider broke something (still works but not smoothly) and it has a slight engine oil leak. The front end of the motor has an idler starting to squeak when it's cold. The car is going to need some basic maintenance soon like cooling, shocks, bushings etc. I'll either sell it like it is or keep it and fix it up.
