Keeping it clean

This is my 2002 330i with about 135k miles. I have owned it for 7 years and my main goal is to keep it looking like new. Just made my first suspension upgrade, but other than that, just replace old parts with new parts. It drives like a dream! I plan on having it forever!

Looks FRESH, nice work. I love the red paint with tan leather color combination. Could you tell me what wheels those are? Looking for a new set so I can have a summer and winter setup, and I like the look of those on a sedan (I have an 01' 330i in grey).

interesting choice on the two tone. I just did mine but in opposite fashion. (sprayed the doorcard black and left the tan leather insert)

clean car!

Thanks! Yeah, probably shouldn't have painted the leather, but whatever. I like it.

Amazing. What do you to keep the engine bay in that great shining condition?

Damn you and your hot weather lack of rust. At least my seats look better

Love to see older E46's maintained in stock form. She will run forever as long as you take good care of her like you have been doing. 212,000 miles on my 01 330i and counting!
