My Ride: 2001 BMW 330CI vert
Got me a new ride

So, this weekend I sold my 1996 Z3 1.9L 5 speed. On Sunday, I picked up an increadible 2001 330ci 5 speed convertible with 89K miles, Alpine white with gray interior. Prior owner had it for 10 years and he gave me an inch and a half tick folder with all the maintenance done on her. Recent tranny and cooling fluid change. Recent spark plug changed, and others. Tires are 4 months old and the wheels have zero curb rash. The top works great with no issue. The owner took great car of her and I was more than happy to drop $5500.00 for it.

For maintenance in the next two months, I plan to replace the water pump, radiator, and thermostat. I'll also replace the differential fluid, as a precaustionary measure. His log shows he replaced the bushings, so that's off my list. Shocks are good, so that'll keep for a year until I get to it. I'll probably replace the brake pads with Akebono's if they need it. Other than that, it's just gonna be fun in the sun in sunny Southern California.
