newbie

Hi All


Just bought a 2004 330cic with 74k. My first BMW after years of Japanese cars...(still own Acura and Lexus SUV's) - very different feel.

Look forward to keeping it working and on the road.

Have not had her for long - but removed the dealer badge, replaced the cup holders (scratched) - want to replace the side directionals that are a bit faded/cloudy as you can see in the pic. I also want to apply BLACK WOW trim restorer after some research in it - if anyone has experience with it before application please let me know. I intend to use it on the black plastic trim around the mirrors as they are a bit faded.

Beautiful car and welcome! Be careful when putting the black restorer around the mirrors they may leave watery marks, it depends on what product you are using. I live in NOVA and have had e46 cars since 2005. Let me know if you need any help

Thanks. I looked at a 2006 in monaco blue and brown interior - that is a fantastic combo - almost pulled the trigger on it but they wanted a pretty high premium so I went for the 2004 silver/black.
