My Ride: 99 e46 328i
Long time reader first time owner

I been looking around this site for a while now. I have always been a Japanese car driver, but decide to switch it up a bit and got a 1999 Orient Blue 328i. I got it with 110k miles on it, and I have already change the spark plugs and air filter, next is the oil change, and then the automatic transmission fluid.

I picked up the car with some minor paint damage, and immediately tried to fix it with some wet sanding and polishing. This was my first attempt at wet sanding too. The biggest spot that was most noticeable was on the roof and 2nd was on the hood. I think it came out pretty good, will give it another shoot when I have more feel time

Love the car and getting use to the straight 6 torque.
