200k!

Mostly lurk around here, but I thought I would share... took my E46 to 200,000 today. I've owned it for the last 3 years, since about 140k and its has been an absolutely great car to this point, I've been able to tackle a few DIY's because of this great site and the wealth of knowledge on it. It's not perfect but gets the job done getting up and down Utah's canyons and enjoys the occasional road trip out to Jackson or Moab!

Re: 200k!

It's a manual, 330xi, zpp, zcw

I originally wanted an AWD manual sedan/wagon...not a whole lot of options in that arena.... Often times during the winter many of the canyons in Utah are restricted to AWD or chains only. Found this car in Maine, drove it out and its been a pleasure to own.

Pretty striaghtforward in terms of maintenance to this point.. I've done the cooling system, oil seperator, front struts, and the usual assortment of filters... Original owner was pretty meticulous and I believe it still has the original clutch!
