    And I love how that car is "rare"

    Just about everything on eBay now-a-days is rare

    The Convertible and Compact were built up to 2000. Maybe this saloon was just registered late....I remember someone posting a pre-facelift e46 that was registered late (2003 or near that year). Could this be a South African import? maybe....but they used Km instead of Miles and their saloon also ended in 1998.

    Verts were manufactured until Sept '99 which is when mine was built, but it wasn't registered until march 2000 and Compacts they carried on making until August 2000, there is a couple of 'W' plate compacts knocking around near where i live!

    Yeah! My friend had a W reg compact in M trim. I guess they carried on with the convertible and compact until they brought out the next generation of those body types
