2003 E46 (?) Touring - spares or repair

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I'm offering this on behalf of my sister, don't know much about it apart from the fact it's a solid car and in not too bad nick considering the miles, I've few pictures which I can email since photobucket now charge, but would recommend a visit if you're interested (and fancy a day at the seaside :D):


2003 318i Touring

Mot to May '18

Good tyres

Good interior

172k and currently SORN'd

Dark blue with grey leather interior


Now the bad bits (and hence spares or repair) It has an intermittent fault which means it starts and runs when it feels like it. She's had it in the workshop numerous times and it has new plugs, coil packs and cam and crank sensors and spent almost £500 trying to get it sorted but to no avail which has left two local mechanics baffled! It also has some graffiti on the driver's side in the form of a picture of Valentino Rossi's bike, she's a big fan of the Doctor apparently. It should come off with some T-cut or maybe the judicious use of thinners.


This is a chance for someone with a bit of mechanical nous to make a couple of quid by getting it back on the road and help her out by getting it off the drive.


The car is located in Southport, Merseyside and will need collecting on a trailer (unless you're a roadside guru and can get it running properly there and then!) She's open to offers (I think she'll take virtually anything) as the next stage is a scrapyard and I think it's too good for that.


PM me for contact details.

She's bored waiting for anyone to show interest and I think she's scrapping it this week, in which case I'll mark it sold.

To be honest as already mentioned, they are worthless and even more so with an intermittent running issue that trained mechanics were unable to resolve. My advice would be to put it up on gumtree at say £100 ono and see if there any takers. If nothing in a week or so, scrap it.

99p no reserve eBay. Spare or repairs


Problem with the bay is that imho, you are a lot more likely to get messed about. Especially for a car that's being sold as spares or repairs You just need some one local to turn up there and then and take it on rather than having to keep relisting due to time wasters etc. Maybe advertise on both and the first one that turns up gives her some cash job done B)
