2001 330ci Dinan 3

Im selling my 2001 DINAN 3 330ci
149,500 miles
Location: Mount Shasta Ca.
Clean Carfax
Tabs good till February
smog cert and title in hand.
in excellent condition.

All mods installed by dinan engineering in morgan hill California.
Everything else is stock.
Sport package.
Multi function steering wheel
17in M3 rims (no rash)
power sport seats with big bolsters.
Car runs and drives amazingly.
No leaks engine or sunroof (sunroof drains are tested and clear) car has been maintained properly mobil one oil/mann filter/Highest octane,
when replacing packs and plugs last year i found everything was so clean,
DISA looked brand new when replacing old cracked rubber air intake boot with new.
Zero Vanos rattle and seal looks new.
Zero suction of oil cap when removed as the engine idles (I purposefully drive 20 min on freeway once a week to let her breathe if ive only done short trips that week)
Tires have 60% decent tread left.
Coolant expansion tank looks brand new! (most likely metal water pump is installed due to the new condition of everything else)
(has german auto solutions aluminum 1.2 bar 17.4 psi pressure release expansion tank cap)
Tail light wiring has been BMW dealership redone...(common failure)
Electric radiator fan converted..(preferred to stock engine mounted fan)
Even the dash clock can still be set.
All power everything works.
Key remote rolls down front windows, opens side rear windows and sunroof. (of corse sunroof shade works flawlessly)
EVERYTHING is there in the interior and all lights work.(has glovebox flashlight, it just needs a new battery)
Great brakes and power steering
Turns like a track car with dinan performance springs and koni adjustable struts feels so locked in with zero body roll.

Ive owned 2 years and only driven 3000 miles. Was my second weekend car until recently selling my 4x4.
I am now tired of not getting to work when it snows.....
I would chose not to go to work if there was snow on the road due to not wanting to risk someone sliding into and damaging the car. (from OCD issues)
I miss the lake and getting out to walk in the woods. Both places with roads id never take this car...
I have a nice AWD H6 Outback lined up and need this sold asap.
Tabs good till February/Clean Carfax/smog cert/title in hand.
Price is 4000.00 FIRM

More pics are in link...


Car has ALWAYS been warmed up to ABOVE the cold blue gauge bar then stayed under 3k untill needle is in center of guage on EVERY drive.
I have been driving only manual cars for 26 years (i miss my 1976,malaga 2002) (i drive safe and never hard due to OCD and over sensory issues)
*only dash light is airbag, code is front left pillar./CarFax no bags deployed*
*slight 3rd gear knotch ONLY on cold mountain mornings BEFORE the transmission warms up (does not grind if driven cold by me, when colder out i rev match and shift lightly into 3rd all other gears are fine cold)..after transmission warms up its butter smooth and there is no way to make it knotch...*
*clutch engages high yet grabs fine, Currently my only car and i drive 3x week.*will need clutch soon
*Needs window switch tops, came with them not there.* (i use a chopstick or my pinky and all switches work well, i did not replace because i do not roll windows down ever and only use AC)
*front OEM badge was paint faded so i removed all paint, can still see the logo yet its not blaring BMW. I like it so much this way. I was going to do the same to the rear badge yet it was like new so i left it*
*Carfax recall is form 4 months ago for airbag, your dealer will fix free.*

Everything works well and is like new or replaced.
All windows/traction control/AC/DISA/VANOS/seals- all good looking working like new
No Check engine light/PASSED SMOG/CLEAN CARFAX/

Location: Mount Shasta Ca.
Tabs good till February/Clean Carfax/smog cert/title in hand.
Priced to sell cash as is 4000.00 FIRM with a new clutch this car will be bulletproof.
currently drives well with no slipping driving to work.
throttle is a consistent solid pull all the way through the range
if your use to stock you will be amazed.
can feel the push in your seat in 5th at 70mph

I know that the first one here with 4000.00 cash will drive it home with a HUGE smile.
I hope this rare car can go to someone who will take good care of it and not someone who wants to race/drift/or abuse it.

With the state of everything and the fact that Mount Shasta is far from everyone.....

Here is a full walk around tour, no mask required.

*full walk around, windows/sunroof drop/exhaust*

*interior driverside*

*interior passenger side*


*dash/start/rev/motor close up sound*

Ive done my best to create the most detailed review of everything.
thank you.

Thank you to the new owner for understanding my social anxiety.
He is a BMW mechanic who knows what he has and deserves it.
He will most likely share on this forum in the near future.

I shed a tear while walking away from the car.
I am on my way to get my rebuilt outback h6 in an hour.

thanks for this forum and the ability to sell on it.
