Hello guys!

My name is Chris, I live in North London. I've owned my 325ti MSport for just about a couple of months now. Previously had a E36 316i SE Compact, was never happy and always wanted a 6cyl!! I heard about the zone quite a while ago from a mate who owned a 328ci, I even rode shotgun with him to one of your dyno days in Jan 2009.

I will get some pics of my ride up next time it's clean. I pretty much plan on keeping it oem, clean and detailed. Got a few ideas for tweaks here and there, maybe some try some carbon wrapping on the interior trims and a sticker front plate.

Anyways I havent seen many compact on here, so I try and contribute what I can for the lurkers!

Another North London, Welcom mate Am also a north Londoner and A newbie to the BMW scene. I hope we can arrange small meets once awhile.

Welcome to the Zone dude :) tidy looking 330 you have there, whats your plans ?

ps get a heat shield on your induction kit and it should perform better :)

hey thanks I love it :) I plan on heat shield for the induction kit ;)

To be honest I'm trying to keep it clean, maybe some nice clean big deep dish alloys.

Clean up the stone chips on the front things like that.

Nice spoiler (just a lip)

angel eyes

LED rear lights

No sure about the exhaust might just leave it standard, sound pretty good as it is.

Can you tell me anything that it a good extra to have?

Sounds fun but will it not effect the back pressure, in turn effecting my power?

Ok as requested by many some pictures, OK there's work to be done I appreciate that but pockets are not that deep and there's no rush. The car was bought a couple of weeks ago via ebay for £1200 its a 323i August 2000 (Private No Plates) and at 63000 miles with full history I pressed the button to make a tentative offer !!!!!!! at which point I found out I owned a BMW.

Its had new brakes all round including brake pipes the tyres are as good as new and it really is in outstanding condition absolutely un marked brand new 6 months tax and 6 months MOT, noticed on collection there was a need to fill up the header tank and the throttle was a touch hard and the heater blower had a mind of its own but did what you want it to do most of the time. Since having it I had the interior valeted (Found two small vodka bottles under the seat WTF) have fitted a few bits such as K&N, clear side repeaters, clear front indicator lenses, full LED interior lighting including number plate lights and front side lights, new pressed steel number plates, front and rear strut bars, carbon badges, black kidneys, and I replaced the dark wood trim with Titan Silver trim, (Need to take some interior pictures)

Done some research thanks to this website forum (And that's the reason for my subscription) and the heater requires a new HedgeHog and it probably needs a new throttle cable, after a coolant pressure test the header tank was found to be split so replaced that which was an easy job. As mentioned appreciated its nothing like some of the motors on here but that said I am getting just as much fun tinkering and playing as anyone on here. My last BMW was an E30 and I was impressed then quite simply there is nothing like a BMW.
