My 2004 330i M-Sport (Mtec II)

Hi Guys,

So I am a South African living in Cape Town, and recently I purchased my first BMW - a 2004 E46 330i M-Sport 6MT with 85 000km (53 000miles).

We have our own online BMW community, but I've relied heavily on this forum to do my research in terms of maintenance. So yes E46Mango, entire cooling system coming at 60 000mi.

Anyhow, here are some pics

Look perfect man - not much else you could to be honest. Just maintain her.

Hey Guys,

Thanks for all the kind comments. She is as clean as she looks (interior as well) - probably the closest I could get to a brand new E46 here in SA (where we have very little choice).

I plan to keep her neat and as OEM/Original as possible. No blacked out kidney grills for me - personally I think they look odd. But I do definitely want to fit xenons, and if anyone has a BMW performance intake that they would like to sell, let me know

I have been thinking about this. If it's feasible, I would love to do it. It's a lot harder for us to find arb parts like these in SA without it costing a fortune.

Thanks for all the kind comments. In case anyone is wondering, m-sport is kind of somewhere between ZHP (has the suspension, but not the diff and cams/software) and individual.
