I'm in my 4th month of ownership of a 2003 E46 320d SE Touring. I bought if from my sister. I hope to keep
it for a few years with lots of TLC.
I've liked BMWs for years. In my teens, some of the more financially affluent guys in my locality drove 2002tii
and 1602 BMWs. I've always liked estate cars, so the Touring is just the ticket for me.
After 11 years of Trouble free and cheap as chips motoring (with a SEAT Arosa), I knew owning the BMW was
going to cost a lot more, but I consider it as my mid-life crisis purchase (and as I don't change cars every 3-4
years like a large percentage of the motoring public, the car is justified).
However, I wasn't prepared for the amount I had to shell out for a new heated rear window.
