My Ride: 2005 BMW 330 Cic
New member in SoCAL 330Cic

Hi all, just checking in. Thanks for all the great info on this forum. "BABY" is my 2005 330Cic...

I'm currently repairing the liner tension "twine" on my driver side of my convertible top, and waiting for the leather repair kit to fix a hole and cracks on my drivers seat.

"BABY" also just got new front control arm bushings, new coolant system (hoses, fan, expansion tank, sensors, water pump), spark plugs, air filter, fuel filter, and fluids replaced (oil, coolant, ATF, brake, and windshield).

Next up is exterior restoration; touch up paint for road chips on hood front and doors, and swirl removal all around. (feel free to share tips and advice

Time to enjoy the car and the beautiful Southern California weather!

Here are some current pics of my BABY and me~

Nice ride!

What is this leather repair kit your speak of?

I just bought one of these for my wife, bout to create an intro thread. Her driver seat is worn pretty good on the bolster, is there a good way to repair it?

I had to put foam and stuffing to build up the bolster. Then many light layers is the repair paste, make sure to spread past the repair area. Good luck!
