Hi guys, new forum user and new BMW owner. Always lusted after a 3 series and finally got my way when a great deal locally popped up. I am bit of a tinkerer, mostly landies in the past (which require a shedload of tinkering I might add) and am looking forward to getting some proper time under the hood and behind the wheel of my new machine.
Just a quick question: My vin lists my vehicle as a 2000, being made in September 2000 adn registered in November 2000, however I was under the impression the E46 325i's were only first brought in for the 2001 model year. I know it is probably a case of car made and registered in 2000 but 2001 year model but that begs the question "what is my car a 2000 or 2001?" In the US we go by the model year so if it is true that the 325i only replaced in the 323 in 2001 then my car would be a 2001, but it seems in the UK that it goes by the registration year so it would be a 2000. Any thoughts would be welcome.
Thanks guys and looking forward to more time on the forum.
