BMW 330///M " Oldschool meets Newschool "






Bought him as 3rd owner. First was BMW AG Munich as company car. Second was an old lady. He is almost full optioned, serviced only at BMW. Only things missing are rearwindow-scroller and M-Bumpers. He seems to have been a presentation car in Munich

- shadowline and roof anthracite
- leather nappa light-yellow
- sport-suspension
- navigation 16:9
- harman kardon
- moonroof
- climate windshield with OEM green sunstrip
- M-steeringwheel and rims
- everything else from the optionlist
- unfortunately also steptronic, which will be decoded soon for faster response



I started redesigning my good one, since he was in factory shape. But he wants to stay a true school sedan. Thats why he becomes something like "oldschool meets newschool"

My changes:

- front bumper E 90 M3 Look (made from fiberglass reinforced plastic, made in germany)
- OEM Mtech 2 rear bumper with ledges painted in car colour (black saphire metallic)
- front strut brace from Wiechers
- rear sport stabilizer bar H&R with stronger holdings
- Zimmermann brakes all around
- cf-reardiffuser
- cf-spoilerlip
- cf-exhaust-tips positioned like on E 90 M3
- LED-Rings in front
- front arm bushingrings renewed

The car is still evolving, im looking for some wheels and suspension up next.
I will be glad about every comment! Thanks for watching

Bumper too aggressive for the car, but its different, so that is nice. Maybe lowering it with some wheels, black out grills, will tie it all together.

I actually like the bumper it's different and that interior is awesome! Don't ever change out that wood trim, second thing those tan sport seats with the line running through it is pretty cool! OEM euro spec feature?

I dont really know, but I thought it has to do with the exclusive nappa leather light-yellow. Standard leather dont have these stripes in germany

Really like the red calipers and unique front bumper. Do you have plans to convert all of your orange reflectors/lights to the clear ones?

Thank you! For the reflectors i would say no. Here in germany everybody has clear ones. First I have plans to get BBS in Black/Orange and the black kidney to that.

Interior is spot on! The front bumper is very unique but it doesn't flow with the rest of the car in my opinion. I dont know if adding e90 rockers & rear bumper will help or not.
