About this blog

Hi all

cars in good knick paid £4,200 for it.

Not taken to many pictures as yet but I will do once I get in full flow with this blog. I had a very good comprehensive build on my last car which was a 2004 Ep3 Civic Type R that was 253bhp and I spent a lot on that car but got £4,750 and I was happy to be honest with the price. 

here it is sadly missed but fancied diesel and always loved e46 coupes

anyway enough of my history I'm loving the Beemer so far got to learn new things now about the car, few things drivers bolster has some wear, vito expect it for the age to be honest. There's two rather small rust spots that will need attention over time just below drivers door not concerned as I will get that looked at. 

 

The current wheels are poor currently looking for new 18inch rims staggered and it's driving me crazy what's the ones to buy, I've put a post in the wheel section see if I can get some help. 

 

The he cars got every thing an msport comes with bar front electric wiper jets and front electric adjustable seats, but that was never a big aspect on which e46 I bought. 

 

Im really happy with car spent 5 hours cleaning it Tuesday not finished really ill get at it again soon

 

the engine bay was dreadful so that took quite a bit of time to try get it to some respectable place few images before and after, on iphone so I don't feel they show the true changes I made in a few hours 

Here's how it started

New wheels

So went to Paris end of last week and before I went I managed to get my wheels changed. 

 

I went for Riva DTMS 8j fronts 8.5j rears paid £420 supplied and fitted & balanced with my tyres swapped over. 

 

I replaced all the wheel bolts too with brad new ones,  and also put new centre caps on. Today I  just added brand new Msport badges on them too

 

for some reason I can't get my links from photo bucket to upload images when I paste the links it won't show photos,and the photos from my iphone are saying too large
