My Ride: E46 M3 & E46 330D
E46 M Sport Saloon Estoril Blue Imola Red Interior + M3 Pic's

Hi everyone
Haven't posted any pic's of the cars for a while
As some of you saw in my last post i bought an E46 330D M SPORT Manual Saloon in Estoril Blue....Car is an Individual model and when i was looking for one it had to be estoril blue 3.0ld m sport facelift and manual.....After 6 months of searching i finally found the car.........Then about 2 months after buying the car i saw the new M5 in Estoril blue with red leather seats and i thought it looked amazing!!!........My car had black leather from factory and i thought if i ever change the seats i'm going for cream leather interior but i changed my mind after seeing the M5
Now finding M Sport leather seats in red is quite hard for a saloon as it took me about 8 months to find this interior

I know some people might not like the colour combo but i think now it deserves to be called an individual model

Some pic's................[Sorry pic's are not good quality, they were taken with my phone]

I am having a serious crisis seeing that sedan right now. A SERIOUS crisis.
God I wish they had Estoril Blue in the states, as well as the 330D. Ugh...


By the way, I'm fairly certain that's Tanin Red. I don't think they made the regular E46 seats in Imola.

Thanks a lot for your comments guys such a big forum and the thread has had over 500+ views but not many comments, why is everyone so quiet?
Haha I never thought about that before but now you mention it I should get some superman stickers for it
Az3579 I didn't know that they didn't make estriol blue sedan in USA........I must say for a diesel they go so well, they have so much tourqe and I'm going to do few things to mine and it will be around 300-300+bhp with 550nm....more than enough as a daily car. I have lots of parts that I bought for this car as I had a plan for it but I'm not going ahead with it now . Apart from increasing the power it's staying as it is.
As for the M3 I think I'll get the rear bbk at some point to match the front ones and try to drive it a bit more next year. It's going to be 12 years old soon and it has just 26k on the clock

For a 12 year old M3 this looks like it just came from the factory..

My Ride: 01 320d Touring(pre)
Quite like the color combo (red and black on blue), good choice, looks sweet!

No brake upgrades on the sedan, correct? ....I'm thinking that a brake upgrade is needed on my tourer (it's rather weak as it is now)....my question is can I go for 6 cylinder brake upgrade on my 2,0D tourer??....or should I go Brembo (if it's possible)?

Both cars equally stunning! What are your plans for the 330D?
