2000 BMW 323i

Some of us out there who follow our site on a regular basis no doubt drool over some of the super fast and ultra luxury machines we feature. But in reality, what we want is something a bit more basic for daily use but that still has the qualities that we’ve come to appreciate from German vehicles, such as solid build quality and better than average performance. Well, this 2000 BMW 323i might fit the bill for you, if you are looking to upgrade just a little bit beyond the used Volkswagen. Despite the name, the 323i had the 2.5 liter inline-6 under the hood, the base engine for the E46 3 series as the four-cylinder 318i went away with the demise of the E36. This one is equipped with alloy wheels and a 5-speed manual gearbox, giving a bit of spice to the basic package.

THERE ARE MINOR BLEMISHES AS WITH ANY PRE OWNED CAR, I CAN SEE A CHIP HERE AND THERE OR A DING HERE OR THERE,THERE IS ALSO A VERY LIGHT SMALL SCUFF OR DING IN FRONT OF REAR TIRE ON DRIVERS SIDE FENDER “SEE PICS” ITS SMALL IT NEARLY UN NOTICEABLE, I HONESTLY MISSED IT WHEN I PURCHASED THE CAR, MOST FOLKS PROBABLY COULDN’T FIND IT UNLESS IT WAS POINTED OUT, JUST BEING TRUTHFUL!!

Contrary to what some readers may assume, GCFSB is not my day job. My boss at the day job recently purchased a 1999 323i, albeit an automatic, for his wife. He’s had nothing but praise for the car, but then again, they had traded it in on a Toyota Matrix. Talk amongst yourselves… Anyway, for its age and mileage, this 3er looks fairly tidy. Beige wouldn’t be my color of choice for interiors, but this car could always be jazzed up a bit, maybe with a new steering wheel or shift know or perhaps different dashboard trim. Given where bidding is sitting, I’d suspect this one will probably land somewhere in the $4,000 to $5,000 range.

  1. Why are car salesmen on eBay such lovers of caps lock and exclamation points? It really confuses me that anyone thinks caps lock makes a few hundred words more legible and clear.

    Those are (IMHO) the funniest looking alloy wheels on a modern BMW.

    Not that it matters, but I think that interior is leatherette. My e46 w/ actual leather and half the miles has considerably more wear on the front seat/s. I think one would have to run the VIN or look at the seats in person to know for sure, but that’s my guess.

  2. @Ry. Good eye. Yes, the VIN decodes to leatherette. Good article in that I agree with your premise Paul but I would probably try to find one with the sports package. But since this does have the manual I’m sure it’s still a pretty nice ride.

  3. I hate all caps as well, Ry. I didn’t have time last night to fix that.

  4. @Paul – I hope my worst enemy on this planet doesn’t have the time to undo someone’s caps lock writings! 😉 Plus leaving it as is lets us get to know the seller a little better. . .

    My favorite quote from this ad:

    “FUN TO DRIVE BECAUSE ITS SO TIGHT AND SO RIGHT!”

  5. I like this a lot, nice find. A sporty, refined, safe, relatively reliable and really solid driver’s car.

  6. I had a brand new one almost exactly like this back in the day. Still the best daily driver I’ve ever had, and shifts were like butter. Still miss that car.
