New BMW Owner - 2003 330Ci Coupe

Hey everyone! Brand new member here from Seattle, WA area. Just bought my first BMW and I LOVE it. Nicest car I've ever owned for sure. It is dark gray (I don't know the official name), has the Cold Weather Package, Sport Package w/18's, Harman Kardon speaker system... One-owner with 69K miles, super clean. I think I got a good deal at $15,500! I haven't taken many pics yet but I haven't really done anything to it either. Attached is a photo taken right before I drove it off the lot...

I am going to tint the windows first, get an alarm and some bass in the trunk, then I think I'm going to smoke all the lights... any suggestions or thoughts? I figure the smoked side markers, front corners and tail lights will make it look pretty sick!

Look forward to hearing from you all, and thanks!

Just ordered Orion V2 angel eyes along with front corners and side markers, both LED Smoked.... I can tell this car is going to cost me a lot of money.

Welcome, good choice! I got mine a few months ago, an 04. Mine had a little higher mileage but I got it for $11,500 with supercharger, coilovers, exhaust already done. I'm already working on more mods.

I can't believe it's been a year already since I bought my E46! I have done quite a bit of subtle mods that make the car stand out, but aren't over the top IMO...

20% Tint
Matte black kidneys
Matte black badges
Matte black vinyl wrapped chrome window trim
Matte black front bumper trim
Matte black trunk keyhole (!)
Smoked corners
Smoked sidemarkers
Smoked bumper reflectors
Smoked Eagle Eye LED tails
Blacked out headlights (Chris Brown)
Orion V2 AE's
LED corners w/resistors
HID fogs (currently 3000K)
Full LED interior
Trunk lip spoiler
ACS replica front bumper lip
Black and Steel Gray roundels all around
19" VMR V710 Staggered Gunmetal with Conti DWS rubber
Kicker DX1000.1 monoblock amp
Kicker Solobaric L7 12" sub in custom box
OEM Aux In
Valentine V1 Radar Hardwired

I have black chrome exhaust tips that I need to put on, and M3 sideskirts sitting in my garage that need to be painted and mounted, and I really want an M Tech rear soon as well. Also considering an H&R Touring Cupkit to get rid of that annoying wheel gap

I have also done regular maintenance and repairs, including replacing inner fender lining & ambient temp sensor and front rotors & pads. I am at about 93K miles now and plan on doing as much of the recommended 100K mile maintenance as I can myself.

In short, I LOVE this car and LOVE E46Fanatics. This is an awesome community with an insane amount of helpful info, DIY's and kick-a$$ forum sponsors (shout-outs to ECS Tuning, JLeviSW, Khoalty, Umnitza, Bimmian and VMR Wheels)

This isn't the best picture, but just for comparison to the one in my OP...



Cheers everyone!

Nice car! Just one question did you wrap your window trim yourself? Was it pretty easy? Thanks

No I paid someone $125. If I had to do it over I might try it myself...
