My Ride: BMW e46 330i
Ben's Alpine white BMW E46 330i

Hi All, thought i would get a thread up for my newly acquired 330i.

Took me a good couple of months of looking for a new car after selling my Mk4 Golf gti, I was contemplating an Audi A4 b6 or a Mondeo ST220 and the BMW e46 330's. I was looking on ebay everyday waiting for the right car and as soon as i saw this i had to have it.

So i took a 100 mile train journey to go see it and sell in love with it. I had test drove an Audi A4 3.0 V6 and found them dull and boring but when i test drove the bmw 330i i knew i had to drive it home.

The car in question is a 2001 BMW E46 330i pre-facelift in one of the rarest colours Alpine White with 18inch CH alloy wheels.

So far i all i have had chance to do is to polish the car and strip and clean the brakes but while i was doing that i painted the calipers blue to match the rims of the wheels.

I do have lots of plans for this including coilovers, wheel spacers, LRN vector 19inch Alloys, Induction kit, cat back exhaust, hopefully a CSL style bumpers and eventually custom leather interior but all this will be over the next couple of years.

Anyway enough ranting from me, here she is, the new love of my life.
