Purchase my first car a few months ago. '04 325ci with the sport package. 90k on the clock.

Pretty much completely stock I believe.

My Ride: '04 325ci 5MT
Thanks! Spent last weekend doing a exterior detail on the car. Was pretty swirl'ed up. Just a beginner and it was my first real detailing attempt. Wash, clay, RO with Menzerna stuff, and Duragloss sealants on top. Not the most expensive products but damn it comes up good, much better than off the shelf stuff at the auto stores.
I can appreciate the costs pro-detailers charge for big jobs, takes so much time but the final result is undeniable.

Settled on a 325, would have liked a 330 however, facelift, manual, and coupe in a 330 is almost impossible to find for sale in Vic. Came across this 325Ci, sport package, manual and fairly low KM's, snapped it up.

Good job!! The TWD M3 CS is detailed with similar products and it looks mint next to anything you put next to it, so you're going about it the right way.

They are made to compete with "expensive products" you speak of and quite frankly, Menzerna and Duragloss have proved to be some of the best products around.

Yep, Nitto Invo's. Previous owner only put them on about 1000km before he sold the car. First real performance tire so I'm not sure how they would compare to others from Michelin or Pirelli. I believe them to be F 225/45/17 and R 245/40/17.

Reviews however seem to point in a positive direction, and the tread pattern is defiantly unique.

Very nice car man!

Looks like you're missing the fog light covers by the way.

Should look like this:

mmmm never noticed there was a shroud on the fog lights! they looked alright just sitting there so never thought much of it.

Thanks mate, its a 325CI in manual. Couldn't find a 330CI in manual, coupe and 04+

Just took some interior pics of the car. Its black leather interior, with the silver alu honeycomb trim highlight. Interior is in pretty decent nick too.
