My Ride: 330i 5spd+05 ZHP
New 330i 5spd Fern Green

So after in and out of love with the alpine 325xit 5spd sport. I have been desperately looking for another 5 speed 330i as I just flipped the last one I had realizing afterwords just how nice it was.

And then this popped up.

A rare Fern Green 330i 5 speed sport with beige interior, less than 140k, maintained at Dinan since its first oil change.

I am looking for high gloss shadow line window trim, dark bronze 18" wheels, or wheels I can powder coat bronze headlights and suspension. (just throwing that out there in case anybody has anything)

Plan on having at least wheel, tint and either wrap the window trim or actual gloss trim on the car by Bimmerfest West.

Beautiful! That's a rare combo you have there.

Why darken the window trim? I think it looks perfect as-is.

I think with bkqck high gloss kidneys and the dark bronze wheels it will look correct. I think the bronze and chrome would not go well together. And as a ZHP owner I'm just a fan of the shadow line.

Thanks man, cant wait to do "stuff" to it.
Did a quick once over on the interior and it turned out pretty good. Went straight to German Auto Sport in Berkeley to have the trans serviced as well. Highly recommended if you are in the area.

Thanks man, never liked green very much but thrilled with this one. Going with VMR V710 wheels and doing tint this week, should look great.

If I was over in the States, I would buy those M sport wheels off you. But shipping to Australia would be a killer

Not my first or 2nd style choice but they are Beyerns, have perfect fitment and picked them up for a song. Also did yellow fogdlights..

And the K&N cold air intake, it does make a bit of a difference.

It is a beautiful color. Congrats. I myself have a 323iT 5spd manual fern green that I picked up in a few months ago. It isn't presentable just yet, unlike yours.

Nice.. I am sure that will be a fantastic car. I just got rid of my 03 5spd 325xit. It was awesome but I wanted a 330i 5 speed sport way too much. RWD.

Lucky me it really is. Can't wait to buff and wax. Only some very minor surface scratches.
