I think I’ve mentioned before how my neighbor’s manual 325i Touring whet my appetite for an E46 wagon daily driver. Good handling, a nice inline-6 with a great manual and plenty of storage space makes it a classy everyday hauler. As we hit times when car friends excitedly point at new Bimmers and exclaim “oohhh, a manual!” these cars hearken back to a time when simple, fun, useful BMWs were still for sale. Though diminutively badged as a 323i, it still had the 2.5 liter six lined up and ready for fun. Its one owner has covered just 87,000 mostly-highway miles in its 13 years and could be a great deal for very capable car.

They can be solid utilitarian cars with great content but not too many frills. Sounds about right, and those same factors may keep the price very reasonable if the already-busy bidding doesn’t get too hot.
