BMW 328i (E46) - 1998 - No MOT - Spares Or Repair - May Break

⭕ The car has no MOT and was used daily until January 2013 when the expansion tank split (car drove really nice before this and was used for a 30 mile round trip each day). I had the expansion tank replaced and the cooling system bled, car drove good after this but was still leaking coolant from under the expansion tank (possibly from where coolant level sensor goes into the tank or bottom hose attaches to it).

Due to me working offshore I didnt have the time to repair and have the use of other cars when onshore this car hasnt been used since January 2013. The battery is flat on the car - I charged it but it wouldnt hold a charge, I believe the battery to be the original so has probably come to the end of its life. The brakes are also rusty and binding due to the time its been sitting. There was only a little fuel left in the tank when parked up so this will probably be stale.

The car is being sold as spares or repair as it hasnt moved since January 2013.

Has the following faults:

No MOT, last MOT was due 2013.
Leak from cooling system (either coolant level sensor not fitted properly or expansion tank not seated properly).
One flat tyre - other tyres not great.
Alloys could benefit from being refurbished.
Has a broken window (rear door).
Rear shock absorbers are a bit spongy.
Front nearside ball joint needs replaced.
Brakes will need replaced, car hasnt moved in 3.5 year so brakes will be rusted, possibly seized.
Not much fuel in the tank and it will have probably turned stale so would probably need drained and refilled. I dont know if just diluting it would be advisable.
Radio headunit is missing (originally had a BMW Business unit).
Original tool kit is missing.

Apart from the above faults, everything worked when the car was last used and the car was very nice to drive before I parked it in the drive 3.5 years ago. It may have (probably has) developed other faults since then.

18 alloys (from BMW 7 Series - could benefit from being refurbished).
Full grey leather interior with electric front seats, drivers seat has 3 way memory settings. Both front seats heat up at the touch of a button.
2.8 6 cylinder 24v engine and 5 speed manual gearbox - the engine and gearbox drove well the last time the car was driven. It could probably be started again with a good service and fresh fuel.
Electric windows front and rear.
Electric sunroof.
Electric heated and power folding mirrors.
Auto-dimming rear view mirror.
Automatic rain sensing windscreen wipers.
Cruise control.
Air conditioning with automatic climate control (May need a compressor).

Im looking for £200 for the car, not interested in offers. A friend has offered more than this just for the engine, another friend has made an offer for the complete interior and some random guy recently made an offer for the bodyshell. If the car isnt sold in a week then Ill either break it for parts or strip it down and turn it into a track car.

If interested get in touch. Im away till Monday so the car wont be available until then.

Ill try and post some photos on Monday.

Buyer will need to collect the car, it has no MOT, engine hasnt been started in over 3 years and the brakes will more than likely be rusty or possibly seized so it would need to be trailered or moved with a recovery vehicle.

If I get a chance Ill try and get it running but cant make any guarantees as Ive got a lot going on the now, if I do Ill update the advert.
