My 330 touring.

Recently got a 330 touring in manual. Coming from a 320ci the power difference is very noticeable.
Just changed the wheels but Iím not sure on them at the moment. Click image for larger version

Iíve removed the rails but only covered the holes with tape because the oem replacement are so expensive. Much prefer the look of the car without rails. Iím thinking of changing the front bumper for a msport one.

Very nice. I too had to remove the rails right away. Good eye.

As for the wheels, I am still not sure what looks best on the E46 touring. For now I am keeping my style 96 wheels from the LCI sport package, but maybe if I find something that really speaks to me I might change them, but so far, nothing really does it for me.

The style 44 you have look nice too. Anyway, I'm sticking with 17"s for daily use on my local roads.

Enjoy!

Ugh, I wish we had manual 330i tourings here! even a 330i auto would be a nice step up! NZ got some cool ones, but europe got ALL the cool ones!

Personally, i'm a big fan of the CSL wheels you've got going on!

Iím really happy with it. Other then the key fobs not working itís been a lovely thing to drive. I used to have a 320ci and the power difference is noticeable.
I donít think Iíll do much in the way of customising. Just try and keep it clean and tidy.

What years were these available? For some reason I thought they were only offered with the smaller engine.

OP is in the UK. Are you asking about UK spec?

I didnít realise they werenít available in the US, there is a lot of 330 touring here but manuals are really hard to come by.

CSL style is always a good look on a touring.

Has anyone had any joy tarting up their centre console. Mines peeling and looking terrible. Iím not keen on just removing the rubbery finish and revealing the shiny plastic and I donít think plasti-dip will be durable enough.
Any tips.
