The NurdWagon...

Selling this...



And picked this up this past week. 70K mile, one owner car... AWD, pretty clean exterior, and interior is as close to a new car as I've seen.

I dig it. If gas were cheap, I'd go for the jeep, but since its not...

I had an 00 Cherokee sport and always dreamed of making it look like yours. Very well done!

Yeah. I wanted a Jeep, thought off-roading might be my thing. I have little time for dogs, wife, mountain bikes, road bike, dirt moto, supermoto, street moto, kayaks, and then modded the Jeep. Like I have time for that.

SO.... much as I "like" Jeeps, off-roading is currently not my thing. And just driving it on the street is a huge waste of a nice rig. So it is on the chopping block. I'm psyched to get the wagon. I may put on some gunmetal or flat black rims and tint the windows. Other than that it will remain bone stock.

To each his own, i would have put the Jeep close to a stock set up and turned my nose up at the BMW, i never want to own anything else that says BMW on it.
No to mention the money saved in the long run.

I used an x3 for a lot of those hobbies. It was great, but I think a wagon would have held more toys in the boot.

Well, if I had it to do over again, I'd have done the jeep just as I did, with a 3" lift, OEM rims powdercoated, and 30" tires. But it is NOT as comfy as the BMW. Apples and oranges.

We also have an X3 which my wife drives, and that is hands down the best vehicle we've ever owned. The wagon is my 4th BMW and we've had no problems from any of them.

3 series and 5 series wagons were virtually unobtainable with a manual transmission, weren't they? A few have passed thru the Advrider Flea Market over the years.

rare.. sure... but they turn up.. only problem with the E46 wagons was that they never offered them with the 3.0...

3.0 + manual + awd = sweet rig....

Very nice!!

Looks nice with the premium package on black....

Never understood the lack of support on the non-sport seats in the E46's... and actually the seats carried forward to the E90s as well... logging +20k per year will make you pretty picky about seats though I guess... Plenty comfy for shorter hops...
