My Ride: E46 323i
Smile Hi my names rick, this is my first 3 serie ....

Hi all, my names, ive had quite a few 5's and 7's in the past, but a never a 3 series. Always loved the E46 shape timeless i think.

Bought mines at a bargain 650 but with a whole load of inherant problems. The truth of it is, i rushed in to it, and with not a lot of cash took a leap of faith.

Great car, but neglected, and ive had to work my way through it, 1st came the header tank, then tyres, bushes, wheel bearing and tie rods, then came the clutch, recently done new radiator, still got brake caliper disks and pads to do, as mot is due in dec ..... Its been a love hate relationship but i'm trying to persevere .... Atm central locking is getting sorted as this has caused most of the heartache, rebuilt door barrel thanks to Fleabay ... But way too many probs, esp having 3 young kids, it has got to be sorted .... So it's awork in progress.

Lowered 40mm all round, CCFL HALO's, HID's fitted ...

Welcome Rick! 650 is a cheap ride! Treat it well, and snap some shots for us if you get the chance.
