REQUEST: Petrol 330 wanted for Youtube video (South of England)

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

My name's Jack and I make Youtube videos about fun/interesting affordable driver's cars. I'll attach a link to my latest video below.

I'm currently in search of a clean example of a petrol, ideally manual E46 330 to feature in a video. The video would essentially ask the question "Is the E46 330 the best/cheapest way into a RWD driver's car?". I'd require 3 or so hours with the car on a weekend to capture lots of nice beauty shots, drive it a little, and perhaps also film a short Q&A with the owner on what it's like to live with (provided the owner is happy to be on camera).

If you're an E46 owner based in the south of England and you'd potentially be interested in you and your car featuring in one of my videos, I'd love to hear from you. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

I can't supply a car, but I can answer your question - no!

The 330d is (once mapped).. :D

Interesting. If this is a commonly held opinion, perhaps I should be searching for one of those as well! Cheers for the input

It is amongst those who have owned both or driven both. But in the end it always comes down to sound. The 6cyl diesel sounds good (for a diesel) but the 6cyl Petrol sounds pretty darn good tbh!

230bhp for the petrol (max maybe 240bhp and ~240lb/ft after a few mods and remap)
204bhp for the diesel (easily mapped to 250bhp and ~380-400lb/ft without further mods. Add a decat/bigger intercooler/injectors/turbo and it'll see north of 330bhp and up towards 500lb/ft).

Both without LSD's though..

204bhp 330ds can be had for peanuts these days too (which is a shame for me.. lol). £1500-2k is all it can take. A nice/clean, low mileage one though (rare as rocking horse poo these days) will be closer to £4-5k.

Similar to a 330i to be fair.
