SB's Take
  • An impressive example of a well specified E46 Convertible
  • Only 3 owners with a huge amount spent on it
  • ULEZ compliant and offered at a very low reserve

SB are pleased to offer this fine example of BMW’s much lauded E46 330ci. This one is an Orient Blue convertible and is equipped in the ultimate luxury daily driver specification: SE with electric heated M-sport leather interior, stunning wood trim (including the steering wheel, gearknob and doorcards), HK stereo and the all-important automatic gearbox for silky smooth wafting.
With this example being ULEZ compliant and having had many ‘big jobs’ done by well-known specialists (including BMR and AM Servicing & Repair), this 330ci is ready to be enjoyed by its next owner. A 3 owner car, this example was purchased new and owned by the same family in Chelsea for 20 years. It was then purchased by SB's very own Ghaleb in 2021 and has remained his daily driver ever since. Ghaleb notes the following about the car:
“This 330ci is the ultimate urban daily driver. It’s small, nippy and characterful, whilst being practical, reliable, easily seating four, and the roof going down means you’re never unhappy to be sitting in traffic. The heated seats and absolutely nuclear hot HVAC means you can have the roof down whatever the temperature. Dry winter days are my favourite time to have a convertible, allowing you to make the most of those short daylight hours."
Boasting elegant looks, especially here in SE trim with the chrome finish around the beltline and silver trims in the bumper, this is a fantastically useable cruiser that feels like a tin top coupe with the roof up, while the 3 litre M54 straight six has that wonderful classic BMW silky smooth woofle that is lost on later cars. The Harman Kardon stereo has a Bluetooth dongle allowing phone connectivity while a set of Style 216M BBS wheels from a 320SI were fitted to freshen up the looks.
This particular 330ci has a few bruises from its past life in a narrow mews but it cleans up nicely and it means you won’t worry about using it as a loyal companion to your day to day life, just as Ghaleb has done for the last two years. It’s a fine example in an exceedingly rare spec and he will be very sad to see it go. Ghaleb is available to answer any questions via the Comments section, below. Buyers should bid with complete confidence.
