  1. I dont know if there any good but they look awesome mate
  2. Heated seats are relatively easy and cheap to retrofit. Xenons are fairly common on facelift 330 coupes/convertible bi-xenons are super rare. If the car is fitted with ribbon style cable to the mirrors the ribbon mirror are like hens teeth if your wanting to retro fit. The satnav is now old hat in e46's probably better fitting a better headunit maybe a dynavin unit. Interior trims are an easy swap. My facelift 2005 330ci has the tyre monitor system and the 4 other facelift 330ci's im close to all have this but im not sure if it was a standard feature or not.
  3. I have no problems actually replacing the seals and fitting the anti rattle kit, i'm just after the advice on if i'll be ok refurbing another vanos unit to replace my own. Need the car off the road for the minimum amount of time
  4. My 330ci is ready for a vanos rebuild and im hoping to buy a 2nd hand unit to rebuild and fit the anti rattle kit too, then get my mechanic to just swap them over whilst replacing the valve cover gasket. Will i run into any issues with fitting another vanos unit from a car of the same engine and year ?? All advice welcome guys
  5. That looks absolutely perfect mate as above whats the size and spec of the wheel and tyre setup links would be handy
  6. I paid 6k for my 2005 330ci facelift msport vert, 1 owner from new FBMWSH, 68000 miles, 12 months warrenty, all recalls completed. £2500 worth of warrenty paintwork completed by main dealer consisting of all 4 archs renewed. All cooling system replaced, both front arms upgraded, rear suspension overhauled, very very tidy car great spec minus sat nav, hardtop included with storage stand, biege/cream leather, mystic blue paint. £1000's worth of reciepts for all sorts of bits that have been replaced through the dealer. It was sold as being over serviced but compared to some of the dogs i went to view i think the one i bought has been properly serviced and things replaced when they needed to be instead of waiting for them to go faulty. Its a great car so i think you certainly get what you pay for with these.
  7. I will look out the sellers details and post them up. Thanks alot mate i look forward to hearing from you
  8. Hey guys, I'm really struggling to find the correct bm part numbers for a the rear springs for my 2005 facelift e46 330ci msport convertible. I've been on realiem and it says no results for my car. I've spoke to a few suppliers and there as confused as i am. Im finding standard springs, msport springs, heavy duty springs but not that seem to fully fit the bill for my car. Any help massively appriciated. Cal
