My Ride: 2003 330i
Newbie from Va

Hi all, Just bought an 03 330i, 77k miles. Already replaced the thermostat and water pump but I kind of expected those based on what I read out here. Also put new tires on it. I paid 11,995 for the car and it's very clean, so I figure I have some room to work out the kinks.

I have a question about the front middle A/C vents, though. Do I need to buy the whole assembly when all I really need is the front grate on the vent? The part that moves it left and right is broken, and it seems like overkill to get the whole assembly. Any help is most appreciated!

Thanks.

Hello, welcome to the forum. Looks clean. That is low mileage. I think you have to buy the whole air vent. I would call the dealer and ask.
