Sold the E46, now onto this... F30 build thread

Hey guys, on Monday I officially sold Adriana. I've had her for nine years on the dot and with a promotion at work and time for something newer I was able to sell it for a decent price and acquired my new car during the selling process.

On Fanatics for nine years and ten on Bimmerfest. I have made many many new friends that I still carry to this day either in person or helping them out online.

Started with a stock 330i, no sport package, only premium package. After years of various modding, few different bumpers I finally obtained the look I was happy with on the car. M-tech 2 all around, OZ lightweight wheels, tinted windows, black grills and a clean interior.

A lot of my miles put on the car were from going to car meets all over the Northeast. And many of those meets were setup by me which I'm proud to say all went well. In 2013 I drove with my friend Jakub from NYC to LA to Bimmerfest West. What an incredible journey.... 6000 miles in 10 days, tiring driving but worth every second with the reward of seeing this beautiful country.

I'm glad that I have helped so many in a decade and I will still continue to do so when time off from work allows it. I will still be on this forum and as a moderator (the bam hammer is a bit rusty )



I will make a legit thread in the showroom section next week but I will post the pics that I have right now of the new car.

- 2013 F30 328i
- M sport
- 6 speed
- Estoril blue

Car already has tinted windows, black grills and an Injen exhaust. The sale came with a set of winter wheels with snow tires, weather tech trunk mat and OEM BMW rubber mats for the cabin.

Jakub and I drove to Boston on Saturday to check it out and I fell in love with the car. I had BMW do a PPI and I drove the car today from Boston to NYC today and I had a blast. So comfortable but yet it can hold its ground in the corners and the power is more than enough for me. Of course I will slowly mod it but with a decade of owning my E46 I know what mistakes not to make when modding so each purchase will be tactically planned/thought out.










AS OF 7/12/18

Thanks! Major mods will start in the spring time. For now I will drive it to make everything is up to par. Front brakes will be replaced in the spring. For now I will get an Injen intake and a GFB diverter valve.

Nice car, but an e46 will be the newest BMW I ever own, not very tech savvy. I'll probably go VW next time.

I like the Estoril Blue, looks good! M-sport 6-speed is a great combo. Cheers...

Nice pick up! Sorry about the loss of 2 cylinders and an intuitive turn signal stalk, but......at least you have 3 pedals, right?

Glad to hear you'll still be around E46F also.

I owned Fritz, my 2001 330Ci since new . I recently passed him onto a new owner. Fritz and I experienced many happy miles. Parting was tough. I now own Gerhardt, a 2018 M240i. Good luck with you new ride.

Very nice looking car Jake. Hope you're staying around here to mod still? I'd be interested in about a year for you to write a comparison to the e46 and F30 in regards to maintenance, handling, comfort etc.
