    Thank you, I'm really loving it. Managed to get the angel eyes fitted tonight, just need to wire in the remote on/off tomorrow and then spend some time giving her a clean. Also better get the old car up for sale too. Sent from my LYA-L09 using Tapatalk

    Mine certainly is a petrol yes. I think i might go with the sportline springs, I just didn't want to get any rubbing on the rear with passengers. Im also thinking of switching to Style 68 wheel. What do people think?

    Thank you, Had a feel today and couldn't feel any movement. I'll have a better look on a ramp this week. A few bits ordered today: - android head unit running 8.1 - LED number plate bulbs - LED interior bulb kit - Rubber boot mat Also looking to order some Eibach springs but can't decide between the Prokit & sport line. I had the pro kit on my coupe with MV2's and 15mm spacers and it looked awesome. Not sure how It will look on a saloon with MV1's Sent from my LYA-L09 using Tapatalk

    So, went to view the car yesterday & fair play to the owner, it really was as tidy as he made out. When I arrived to view the car was immaculately clean and he even had it under a gazebo as it was raining. The car immaculate and a big history file to go with it. It was safe to say I have him the cash and took it home. Being the first 3.0 I've owned (I've had 3x 325s and 1x 525) I couldn't belive how much more power it feels the 3.0 has. The car drives amazingly for the age and didn't miss a beat on the journey home. I did however notice on the motorway the steering felt very vaughe and like there was a lot of free play before the wheels actually moved (any ideas?) I also noticed it seems to tramline really bad but I can't remember if that's normal for these. Iver all I'm extremely pleased and I can't wait to start making it even better.

    I agree, I'm also thinking that the 9" glass screen may not suffer as much with glare.

    I can't decide, I love the look of the 9" screen & the glass look to it looks better than the other. I'm just worried it won't fit into the dash very well.

    Thanks guys, First mod will be the Head unit, I can't live without Spotify, decision is which of the below do I go for? Oem looking https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F253855742174 Or more modern looking with a bigger screen? https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F283105091414

    I agree, not close to top spec but looks like a clean looked after car. My plans are as follows: - new set of genuine floor mats - xenon headlight retrofit - Angel eye retrofit - eibach Pro lowering kit - 15mm spacers all round - android head unit

    Thank you, 122,000 miles, £3,000. Here is the description from the ad & the pictures: Reluctantly I am selling my beautiful top spec 2003 BMW 330i Sport Auto finished in black colour with black sports leather interior. This BMW looks and drives superb. It has covered only 122,000 miles, and after a few minutes behind the wheel you can really feel how well this 3 Series has been looked after. Comes with FULL SERVICE HISTORY, V5, full set of keys (2 remotes, 1 spare and 1 valet key) and is HPI CLEAR(report included). Last service has been carried out @ 118,250 miles including oil, oil filter, air filter, pollen filter and new tyres. Within the last few years it had new brake discs, pads, calipers, spark plugs, anti roll bar links, bushes, diff gasket, alternator and so on. Next MOT due February 2019 (no advisories). Recently changed expansion tank wiht new pipe, termostat, water pump and it has new genuine coolant. Under the bonnet we find that legendary 3.0 M54 straight 6 cylinder petrol engine. Famous for its bullet proof reliability, performance and efficiency. A proper BMW engine from the times engineers rule the factory, not accountants and marketeers.. The M54 topped Ward's 10 best Engines list in 2002 and 2003. As you would expect from a well looked after BMW, everything works perfect. Engine is quiet, no oil leaks, gearbox goes through all the gears nice and smooth, solid suspension. Clean interior. Climate control with ice cold air con. Really good bodywork. Free of any rust, scratches etc. Obviously there are few very minor age related marks (e.g. tiny stone chips on the front), but nothing that would spoil the look. Exceptional condition. Generously equipped with M sports leather seats, automatic transmission, air conditioning, climate control, electric windows front and rear, electric door mirrors, 6 disc CD-changer, multifunction M sport leather steering wheel, sport suspension, on-board computer, cruise control, parking sensors, automatic headlights, auto dimming rear view mirror, 18" alloy wheels, central locking, alarm, ABS, ESP, DSC and so on.. This E46 3 Series is already a modern classic, not many of them left around in such a condition, and it will only go up in value over the years.
