Supplied new in September 2003 by Derek Woodman Ltd BMW of Blackpool this highly presentable E46 generation 318CI Cabriolet is a face-lift model and is finished in Sapphire Black metallic with desirable and contrasting Exclusive tan nappa leather interior, (a £1,420 option when new) and attractive Mrtyle wood interior trim. 

The car looks the part in black with black mohair hood sitting on attractive 18" MV2 alloy wheels wearing M-sport bodykit and bumpers.  Inside, we find comfort spec seats with electric operation and driver's memory, half timbered, multi-function steering wheel, cruise control, OBC, switchable traction control, BMW Business radio/casette with CD changer, digital climate control with AC and reto-fit Bluetooth parrot.

Powered here by the proven 140bhp 2.0-litre petrol four-cylinder engine and driven to the rear wheels through 5-speed manual transmission, the car not only looks the part in a desirable, Modern Classic way but offers enough performance for most with a super interior spec.

In additon, a further three stamps are present for brake fluid changes, the last was stamped in September 2010. Furthermore, we find the V5C showing just two former keepers, the current, a lady since January 2009 along with PDI sheets and current clean MOT valid until February 2022 without advisory.
