BMW E46 3.0CS - project. *new pics

Recommended Posts

Nice car! Shame about the 'box ;)

I'm driving nearly 95% of the time in Central London and just for the record, yesterday I traveled 7 miles in 2 hours and 40 minutes :D so you can image this box for me it's pure gold.

Looks nice Lex, I prefer manual box, maybe cos I don't drive in city. 7 miles journey was a bit extreme lol

Now the new one it's a 330ci Clubsport totally standard which will stay like this, only things I have to do is to get the wheels properly refurbished, a leather treatment and a polish/wax.

Well that lasted!

It's standard mate, that means no aftermarket parts, cutting wires or stuff, the US style it's just 2 clicks on a software, I can turn them off anytime.

As my taillights were quite dirty, I decided to restore them so I can make sure they'll be properly sealed.

Not too bad, i'm quite happy with the result, looks clean again.

mate they look the nuts, loving the quads and love clubsports, grey leather, sunroof, auto.. best combo..right up my street..

Hours of cleaning coming up I see..!!!

Any E46 330i with the super smooth 6 pot M54- 231bhp engine is spot on,with it's instant low down grunt the auto box works perfect..and lovely rumble in the jungle from the pipes as well...

Thanks mate, coming from manual, yes I find the auto box much better in heavy traffic, also pulls alright when it's on manual mode, very happy so far.

The sound... hmm engine sound yes, sounds better, but nothing can beat my quad exhaust, not even M3's.

Hi mate. How did you do the US style lights on the indicators. I want to run that on mine. Thanks.

Hi mate, this is a OEM feature on E46's, you can turn them on using the NCS expert software, nothing else...

Nice clean example, how easy was it to clean the rear lights?

Cheers mate, i'm trying to keep it clean and oem as much as i can, to clean the rear lights you just need to take the lenses off, you can do that with your hands if they've got already dirt inside (means the seal it's not there anymore) or you can cut the seal with a stanley knife, then you just clean inside/outside and polish the outside glass (DON'T!!! polish inside the chrome bit, it will come off, just wash gently with warm soapy water).

And then use a plastic silicone to reseal them, make sure they're properly sealed so you won't get dirt anymore inside.

Ooppss... I did it again, well... at least I tried to keep it standard but f*ck it, life's too short to stay standard.

There are little changes, soon will come more. :thumbup:
