As it's been very quiet on these forums for a while, I thought I'd post a few pictures of my 330D, which I've owned since August 2007 and just under 14,000 miles on the clock iirc.
It's just rolled over 109,000 miles and is still running great after nearly 14 years. Added some pics of when i bought it and now!
