DZILVA - member introduction!

ok I am bored right now, so I thought I would formally say hello to everyone!, the names Manoj De Zilva, 22 years old and from Melbs SE suburbs, I have been surfing these forum for quite awhile now since back in 2007 but I never really got involved, Ive had the privilege of owning 3 e46s during that time as I am simply addicted to them, one of the most beautiful cars ever made imo, so anyway here is a brief story of my e46 ownership...

When I turned 18 back in 2008 I took the plunge and got a bank loan to buy my 2nd car, a 2001 Topaz Blue Metallic 330ci vert, did several mods until I lost my license for 1 year just before summer... still kept driving anyway and got caught.. lost it for an additional 6 months on top, I decided to move on so I sold it

After finally getting back my license in early 2010, and having saved up all my pennies in that down time I was on the hunt for an M3 but spotted an almost brand new 2003 330ci individual vert in manual with only 18,400 genuine km on the clock! so I jumped on it instead, I planned to keep it for the rest of my life so I modded it that way, not thinking twice about expense and worked 2 jobs feed my mod bug, never bothered to take pics of it in its final stages because I had a few mag spots and website features lined up, it went through a few looks but this is close to what it looked like before... I lost it in the wet due to running extremely stretched tires and slamming into a concrete pole at 80km/h
