My Ride: E46 330CiA Convert.
E46 330CiA Convertible by blademccoy

Hi everyone

I live in Poland, in the city of Wroclaw. My name's Radek, and it's great to be a part of your community

I decided to show you my BMW E46 330CiA Convertible, which i own for about two years now. Prior to this car i had E46 323Ci Coupe, and E30 320i coupe.

Engine: Inline 6, 3.0 litre, 231 HP, M54b30
Transmission: Automatic w/ steptronic

Colour: Black Sapphire Metallic
Rims for the winter: BBS RS II 17", with 225/45 runflat tires
Rims for the summer: BBS/BMW Styling 78 18", with 215/40 tires front, and 245/40 tires rear

There are some things I plan to do with my car - currently it's just stock full-m-package, and I like it the way it is ...Currently I'm finishing the last details regarding the service (new things come up every time I want to upgrade something in my car ), after that I'll think about some upgrades

And here are some photos:

thanks

i don't like when my ride looses its polish, so I keep it clean all the time ...anyway i'm crazy about the mirror-like reflection, so in the next week i'm driving my ride to get it well-polished mechanically and covered with protective coat in a car detailing center ...there are still some swirls, and little scratches, which are visible in the artificial light, or direct sunlight... I hope to make some new photos after this paint job

Before the photos I usually polish it by hand (so the effect isn't that astonishing, as I suggest it'll be after my visit to the car detailing center), and after that I cover whole the car with wax ...effects are good, but after few days, it gets wiped out from the surface, so i have to wax my car almost every week I love it, so it's no big problem

And coming back to the shots - my biggest problem is to find a good place... but i try hard

The car was recently polished, and the paint is in the better condition than ever ...more than that - i covered the paint surface with Sonax Premium Nano Silicone layer, which should act like a wax for about 9 months... I washed the car 6-7 times since the application of Sonax, and it's still on the car - usually typical carnauba wax i used to apply stays on the car only for 2-3 washes, so i'm pretty happy with the effect of Sonax

Also i made some new photos in a new style

I hope you'll like it:
