My Ride: 2005 330Ci Coupe
Hello from Cocoa Fl, 330Ci Coupe

Hello fellow E46 fanatics!
I am a first time BMW and E46 owner and am here to learn. I am not new to performance vehicles or forums so hopefully before to long I'll be able to pull my weight.
I just bought my 2005 330Ci Coupe 6 speed in Sparking Graphite Metallic, this past Tuesday. There are a few issues I'll be looking to correct and use the Search function for. I am looking forward to the BMW fellowship that I have heard so much about, making new acquaintances, and learning more about my E46.
Thank you!

Thank you zeroforce, much appreciated. I checked our your garage and am impressed. I really like the trans and deck lid swaps and the custom plate is very appropriate as well. Thanks again!

Welcome and nice find. Love the Mparalles. If you ever get to open the wheels I would appreciate if you can send me some pics on how it's been fitted. I too am looking to put Mparallels. Cheers

Thank you everyone, I've been doing a lot already.
I've replaced a LED taillight, added the garage door opener rear view mirror, installed smoked front fender indicators, removed the seats and installed the passenger airbag cheat to turn off the idiot light and while those were removed I cleaned the cloth part of the seats and carpet using a Bissel Spot Clean preheat unit. I am now waiting on a handheld steamer to clean the Alacantara. I've also had to rewire the HID Active drivers side headlight as all the wiring was fried, literally the insulation was flaking off (I filed a complaint with the NTSB). And this Wed 27SEP2017 I have an apt at the dealership to get my recalled airbags replaced!
That's about all for now. Again thank you everyone!
Craig

Great. That's common for the coupe headlight wiring. I had the same problem.

05SMG,
It was great meeting you at the local weekly German car meet at Longdoggers in Viera.

You really have a fantastic looking car and I appreciate all the tips about owning an E46 and the help with connecting your OBD2 scanner up.

Likewise! It was cool comparing notes. Congrats on having perfect LTFT numbers on a ZHP with 150K plus.
See ya.

That would be great! Just out of curiosity, what color is your 330?

I think I saw it (Black 330 top down) earlier this summer at a driving range (golfing) with my daughter. If that was it? it was mint. Daughter said... "Dad look at that one."

I don't believe that was me, I rarely leave the proximity of the car with the top down, especially in the summer. There's another one in Melbourne, exactly the same as mine but I don't think it's manual :-) My 330cic has 136k miles so not that mint but I do try to take good care of it!
