Pretty simple question.

We used to have a Z4 3.0i manual that had hill assist - my wife loved it.

Since she learned to drive on that car, she's had difficulty with other sticks that don't have hill assist.

Our family has grown and we had to get rid of our Z4, but now she'd like an E46 - do the E46 cars have hill assist?

Yes, but I believe only with the SMG (sequential manual gearbox) option. SMGs were most prevalent in E46 M3s. There are very rare cases of the E46 330i, and 328i with a variant version of SMG that BMW named SSG, "sport sequential gearbox." Those cars sometimes came with hill assist - sometimes also called "gradient assist." It was available in the E46 in various models from 2002 until 2006. My conjecture is that less than 4% of non M E46s have SMG, and therefor also have hill assist. I have never actually seen one.

Cheers,
E46323i
