Used BMW E46 3-Series sedans aren’t particularly rare, interesting or expensive, but this one is a little different as it looks virtually brand new.
Recently listed on eBay, this 2002 3-Series is being billed as “one of the lowest mileage 330i’s for sale in the country, if not the lowest.” As you can see in the photos, the odometer says the car has only been driven 9,535 miles (15,345 km) since it was built nearly two decades ago. This means the car’s various owners have only averaged an annual trek of just 560.8 miles (902.5 km).
According to the seller, the car was originally purchased in August of 2002 with 3 miles (4.8 km) on the odometer. The car appears to have spent most of its life parked in a New York garage as it didn’t trade hands until 2016 when there were just 1,286 miles (2,069 km) on it. Despite being parked most the time, the car’s original owners reportedly took good care of it as the car was regularly serviced and given oil changes.
The second owner only drove the car for a couple of years, but they also didn’t use it very much. As a result, this 17 year old 3-Series has only been driven 9,535 miles (15,345 km).
Thanks to the low usage, the car is in near perfect condition. According to the seller, the only issues are a “tiny chip” in the windshield and a quarter-sized stain on the driver’s side carpeting. The wheels also have some slight brake dust discoloration.
The 3-Series has a Buy It Now price of $17,500 (£13,592 / €15,348) and the model comes nicely equipped with heated leather front seats, an automatic climate control system and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The car also has bi-xenon headlights, a five-speed automatic transmission as well as M Aerodynamic, Sport and Premium packages.
