I’ve successfully repaired all the rust, although I can’t quite figure out why the VIN now begins with a W.
In all seriousness, this is my “new” 2006 325i and as German cars are, it comes with a whole list of options and specs. 6-speed manual, Arctic Metallic, Titanium trim, Sport package, Xenons, Moonroof, Bluetooth, Logic7 audio system, Heated seats, Ski bag, etc.
It was actually quite well-maintained by the previous owner and all of the typical N52 issues have been addressed. Now all it needs are two bulbs and some light coding and it should pass inspection nicely.
