E36 spotted by my friend Madhav Thanawala in this rather unique shade of green.

Though one of the newer BMWs around as compared to other cars in this thread, personally I think the E46 has kind of has achieved a classic status all over already. With the M3 commanding high prices all around the world, and with nothing but praise written about the E46's legendary handling and the ever so balanced chassis, the E46 is surely becoming a collectible.
With the coupes and cabriolets around the country in absolute limited numbers, a clean example is always hard to find.

This particular E46 325ci is one of the most driven and used 'older' BMWs around. The optional removable hardtop (which is not seen on most E46 cabrios in the country) makes it extremely practical as well. Fairly clean in terms of originality as well, with only painted wheels and the BMW M3 style fender grilles being the modifications in place. A cold air intake under the hood makes the already fantastic inline-6 motor much more sonorous.

The car belongs to a close friend, and it being extremely photogenic makes you click many pictures of it, making it difficult to choose the 30 best pictures of it.Maybe another post with some more pics sometime in the future?

BHPian sammybarman and I were extremely lucky to get a ride in BHPian dip27in's immaculately maintained 2003 BMW E46 325i today morning. The car has just about 25k kms on the odo, and looks brand new. This is the only E46 in the City of Joy, and the fact that it's a manual makes it one of the rarest cars in the entire country!
The BMW E46 is my dream car, and I'm still completely awestruck by the drive. Boy does she move, and how! She slid around South Kolkata's roads effortlessly and took corners in a way that would even put motorcycles to shame. Coupled with dip27in's insane driving skills, this is one drive I'll cherish for a long, long time to come. Thank you so much Sir, for accepting my random request, and entertaining two kids on a weekday morning
