My Ride: 330ci
my 330ci transfo

Hey guys,

Im new on here but have been a long time observer and thought i would make a thread about my black 330ci. I first had a blue manual 325ci (see photo) which got hit by a truck and totalled and found this black 330ci which look'd good. Long story short i love it. Its also a manual and the extra power of the 3L is awesome. It has about 90 000 Kms on the clock which is about 50ish thousand miles for all you americans

When i first got it, it had orange lights which i immediately replaced to clear on the front/side and led clears on the rear. IMO makes the car look a lot fresher. Next i got a M3 front bar off ebay which fit surprisingly well. Lots of things to come.

All your advice and comments would be awesome as thats the main reason why im creating this thread.

Cheers

Welcome I would like to know what an M3 front bar is? Are you talking about the front bumper cover? Car is looking good and there are a lot of mods that you can do, for instance changing out the shifter/knob... I have several mods listed in my sig...

Gotcha! You have an awesome color combination going there! The big thing is to keep things classy. When doing maintenance, upgrade when possible. For instance, when overhauling your brakes, upgrade to BBKs. In my case, I went with BMW Performance BBKs and upgraded all of my rotors to BMW Performance and replaced my brake lines with stainless steel brake lines. That's one of many different things I have done to my ZHP

Oh, before you hear from Mango....be sure to refresh your cooling system as well Mango has a good DIY you can follow regarding cooling system refresh.

haha speaking of cooling systems, the expansion tank decided to call it quits a few weeks ago but i got that sorted. $350 BMW charged me just for the tank and i installed it myself. I thought that was a bit steep. But since the tanks gone i am suspicious that other things to do with cooling will start failing. Touch wood for now! Im keen to get the brakes done in the near future as well.
