That driver's seat is in fantastic condition for the mileage, not even wear on the bolsters. Have the seats been recovered or are they the originals?

I am pretty much sure that those are original. In fact, there is some wear but not that bad.

Yesterday we fixed vacuum pump with my friend. No more oil leak for exhaust..
Repair kit from BMW was 12eur, not so expensive.. easy job after all.



And winter wheels. We had first snow yesterday.

Trim, what part?

Yesterday i bought new winter wheels:
Brand new Nokian Hakkapelitta 9 205/55/16 studded nordic tyres. My local tyre shop celebrated 90 anniversary,
so there was offer -90% from hakkapelitta 9 sets for 9 first people in the morning..
Also new set of Dezent 7x16 wheels. I protected alloys with nanolex SI3D ceramic coating.

Great project. Just 3 years ago these newer e46s were very reliable. I had a 325cic, nothing wrong with it except for an oil leak.

Also nice gesture from the tire shop!

Thatís what I am asking about; what trim do you have? Is it a vinyl wrap over factory trim?

Today was wash day.
Car was absolutely soaked with salt and dirt. It was so easy. After prewash with foamlance it was 99% flawless. No any dirt which i can feel with me finger from car door.
I am in love with ceramic coating..
Previous winters it has been so difficult to keep car clean with waxes.

Wash process:

for dry and dirty car:

1. De-tar / salt remover fluid with foam lance
2. Bilt-Hamber autofoam foam prewash
3. Rinse with hot water
4. Wash mitt & chemical guys citruswash & gloss shampoo
5. Rinse with hot water
6. Reload spray
7. Rinse with hot water
8. Drying with autofinesse aqua deluxe microfiber drying towel.

Nice. How do you have access to hot water? With a hose or a bucket filled from a kitchen sink?

I have heated garage in my use. There is also reserved area in my garage just for washing. It is old factory and it has space for 15 cars.
We have 60 celsius water in use, and professional pressure washer for car washing.
It is so much better compared to wash with cold water.
Here it is impossible to wash outside cars in wintertime because it is so cold usually.

Battery replaced: 100AH Duracell.
Old battery was 74AH, and in battery test it was only 400A from original 700A start power, so time to replace..
