My most loyal and dependable friend ever!
I have owned her for about 3 years now. She started her journey with me as a standard 323ci.
I have done a lot of work/upgrades on her.
M-Tech drilled/grooved discs, 4 new stock callipers, Coilover suspension, heavy duty adjustable drop links, whole car recently poly bushed except for engine and trans mounts, Torsen 1.5 way LSD, Vanos rebuild, M54B30 intake manifold replacement, Rear subframe removed, de-rusted, cleaned and re-sprayed, replaced factory aero-kit front bumper with M-sport bumper, genuine 19inch M-437 wheels, replaced stock interior with M-sport interior. Proper tight car now. Such a joy to drive! I'll never sell her. Planning an engine swap next. I have an M52TUB28 engine waiting to go into her but i'm considering Boosting it first. If i can find the cash! To me she is one of a kind. I haven't seen another one like it anywhere.
My Oxford green 330d M sport touring
This was my winter hack however it has so far proved to be a superb car regardless of what I used it for, achieves over 50,pg on my regular runs to work and you feel kinda cosseted as well as it has a full heated nappa interior with extended leather door cards and door pulls. Folding mirrors, ski bag and although slightly rough isn't too bad. Manual as well and it so nice to use.
I gave it a going over with my new toy, polisher from slims and it came up a treat, the green is really nice, deep colour with a slight change to it when the light hits it. Rusty front wing though which i a shame 2 previous owners and the one before me had it for 10 years, paint had suffered though but rectified much of that. Just need to reseat the bumpers as they have either sagged or moved (probably following a small bump at some time). The first 6 images are as of this weekend, the previous 4 were just after I bought it. It was a rash on the spot decision to buy it, Saw it, decided to buy it, deposit over the phone and went and collected the following day sport of thing, a gamble admittadley but sometimes you just have to.
