This is a 01.1999 model.




Wouldn't be a retrofit if wheel came out on car model would it!? The wheel you have suits nicely.

The wheel is decent enough. I just thought the one I had in the 330Ci made the interior look a little bit newer/modern.
If my car was from march 1999 or a little bit newer, I would still have had the same wheel, BUT in a dual stage version. Hence retrofit

Some more pics from last night:

Beautiful car. Sad you sold it. But I like the E39 M5 as well. BTW, what wheel is this? I like them.

The new guy has a question. Forgive me for being rude but how much did all of the upgrades cost for the 330? Paint, boot lid, exhaust, repaint, etc. By the way - BEAUTIFUL.

330Ci

@Generalvp: Wheels on that pic are Z-performance 07. Cost around $1500 here. Plus tires.

@jjonesfc:
The car cost me about $22K back in 2013, and in addition to that, I spent somewhere around $30K on it. That is several mods changed back and forth, tons of wheelsets, paint for everything (in Norwegian prices ) and a new look every season.
I couldn't control myself and would have ended up with a built E46 M3, which I should have gotten in the first place. Haha. The really good, original examples lie around $35-45K here. Would have saved me some money for mods and insurance, fuel etc.

I really miss the E46 from time to time, especially how it looked. But at the same time I don't regret buying the bulkier and discrete M5. The sounds it makes is just heaven. Still love it, after 1,5 years now. I sold the E46 to a guy on the other side of Norway, and last fall, he sold it back to a woman in my city. So I get to see it sometimes on the road and on her facebook. She takes real good care of it.

I parked next to a LeMans blue E46 M3 from my Norwegian BMW-forum, and found out my car wasn't LeMans blue at all. The ad called it Nürbürg-blue, but that isn't the name of any BMW color as far as I know. When I asked the seller, he sad it was another name for LeMans, but I managed to find out that my car was actually stripped down and completely repainted from Silverstone to Avus blue back in 2008.

Other than that, I installed a sat-nav screen this winter:







I also reapplied Swissvax Shield, cause it started raining when I was about to buff it off, last time. Went out for a drive (on winterwheel-setup) and took some pictures:
