Car Throttle has been tinkering with old BMWs for awhile. It seems the British publication likes old Bimmers and with good reason; they’re awesome. They’ve featured E36 M3s, E46 M3s and even an E46 Touring diesel, done up for track use. Now, though, they’re giving away an E46 3 Series Convertible for free.
In this new video Car Throttle shows off the E46 3 Series, which is a 325Ci Convertible, and gives us a bit of a walkthrough of the car and its mechanical bits. It’s actually a surprisingly clean example, with almost nothing wrong with it. Sure, it’s a bit old and maybe slightly tired but it’s in really good shape.
Because it’s a 325Ci, it sports a 2.5 liter naturally-aspirated inline-six engine (don’t you miss the days when the numeric nomenclature actually represented the engine?) and is rear-wheel drive. This specific model also has a six-speed manual, which is the preferred gearbox. Being a “Ci” model, it’s a soft-top convertible with a power folding roof. Said roof also looks to be in good condition and works fine.

Of course, the video is sponsored, which is how Car Throttle can giveaway a car for free, but that’s fine. They’re still giving away a free E46 3 Series Convertible, which is pretty great for whoever wins it. The only thing you have to do to enter is comment on the video with why you should win and then share the video on your social media channels.
There is a stipulation, though, and that’s the fact that you have to be able to pick it up yourself. Being that Car Throttle is based in the UK, that leaves us ‘Mericans out of the question. Still, for anyone in the UK, or even close by European countries, it’s possible to pickup and would be pretty cool to get for free. Check it out.
