My Ride: 325ti se
Welcome... No wait. Hello!!!!

Hi guys/gals

just saying hello, bought a E46 325ti SE in December & im uber happy with it.

Its a
2002 325ti SE Compact / 74k / Black / Grey Leather

Its in REALLY great condition, no rust anywhere but there were a few niggly bits which i wanted to fix...

Coolant needed bleeding
N/S Door Accuator needed replacing
Airbag Light On
New First Aid Box
Oil Sender Needs Replacing
Rear Wiper Not Working


Ive done the first 4 with the remaining 2 still to be done, i have questions regaring the wiper but i'll find a proper thread for that.

Ive also installed a Dynavin D99+ in it which now that i have M3Evolution's ROM i am very happy with.

As you can probably tell from all this i am still VERY happy with it and as its my first BMW im very impressed



Cheers (and sorry for all the questions coming your way)

@dreamliner330

There not to everyone's taste but i (obviously) like them, there is other things that work for me. They are lighter then the rest of the series, boot space was never a priority for me & rear passenger access is no worse then the coupe. I also drive through and work in central London where parking is at a premium, the longer the car the less your options are. That said i didn't go out to buy a compact specifically these are just of a few benefits of it now i have it.

@chinax
Cheers Pal

I love the shape of the cars, but the headlights just kill it for me. Welcome though
