    Hi there,

    I have just put a deposit down on a silver 328ci se, with full BMWSH and 98k miles at a just 3k with loads of extras, but it needs a little touching up.

    First of all it looks to have been keyed acoss the drivers door with a farily deep scratch 40cm and maybe 15cm behind the door by the rear seat on a different panel.

    Also a front arch has a little rust bubbling, which seems to have been touched up quickly.

    Finally the 19" M3 wheels are in need of a complete refurb.

    So what sort of money can I expect quotes to come in at?

    We'd need to see some photos of it once you get it to be able to give you a reasonable estimate

    I bought my '97 328i sport with 105k on the clock, 2 owners, FBMWSH in February for £1,800. Its an E36 compared to your E46, but condition wise the exterior is probably similar... clean, well specced car that had last mature owner 10 years! but needed a few cosmetic jobs doing.

    I like to get things done properly so have gone down the BMW Indy and best local bodyshop route... and so far I have spent around £1,400 and the car is looking pretty sweet... but needs probably another grand spending for me to consider it a minter.

    As already stated though, it all depends on the quality of the work that want doing how much it will cost you.

    In the end its your choice
