E46 330d sport touring

Recommended Posts

Hi

im a big Bmw fan and own a few. I've been lucky enough to be able to collect own and drive some of the greatest cars ever built. The plus side being they are a useable pension fund. My latest addition has taken me 12 months plus to find and eventually I did find it. 2005 05 plate 330d sport touring auto in orient blue. 2 previous owners with last one 10 years. 60k from new with full history. In good solid condition with NO RUST and not messed with. 

My objective was to create a very very clean car for everyday use and for it to drive as new. What I had was the foundation for that car. So I set about

new wheels and tyres

new discs and pads

vortex breather

arb bushes

drop links

swirl flaps removed

all filters changed

two thermostats replaced

rear springs changed

all front and rear bushes changed

rear lights on tailgate changed(gone yellow)

side repeaters changed (gone yellow)

bmw grey alcantara gear gaiters and hb gaiter

recovered steering wheel 

4 wheel alignment

all fluids changed

all vac pipes swapped

i have fully detailed the car and ceramically coated

plans are to fit Bluetooth and drive it. 

Massively capable car and really truly drives like new
