My Ride: 2004 330i
My 330i

So mid last year I decided that it was time for me to buy myself a BMW, and after some searching in July I found my car.

Here are some of the first pics I took of it, this was taken the first weekend after I got the car.




It is a 2004 model and when I got it, it had 82xxx km (+-51xxx miles) on the clock it is now at 93xxx km (+-58xxx miles).

I got it with:
-Sportpack
-Harmon kardon sound
-Fold down rear seat + ski chute
-Sunroof
-Towing hook

This is what it looks like now (sort of, I have actually done some more stuff since the pics where taken) :







What I have done so far:

I have fitted a set of second hand OEM xenon headlights




I have replaced most of the interior lights with LED replacements


I replaced the gear knob with the the M sport one from the e9x/e8x range:


I changed the stitching on the gear lever and handbrake boot to a light grey.


I have changed the interior trim three times: wood -> piano black -> custom painted metallic steel grey -> brushed aluminium (I stuck with this in the end)


I fitted the shift lever from a Z4 as short shifter:


I removed the towing hook:




I resprayed my grilles gloss black:




I modded my bonnet safety latch to make it less visible:



Sorry about the epic post guys but I hope you enjoy it
