It looks very good all around. How did the first drive go? No hiccups?

Some small problems

1. There was oil smoke coming from exhaust manifolds, maybe there was some oil after valve cover gasket replacement. No smoke anymore after driving more.
2. Left door speakers was not working, but after little driving and more volume those are now working okay. Maybe some problem with amplifier in boot.. Dunno.

Otherwise, no problems.

So May 14th was the official start driving season. I wonder how many months are okay to drive your gorgeous car¡¡¡?

Also there is a cap you could use to cover the struts 'mushroom' support so in that way your engine bay seems even cleaner.

The part number is Strut cover 31331090616Click image for larger version

I had my 18 year old BMW undergo a free front airbag replacement procedure today. I'm glad, another thing is taken care of. Antti, have your VIN checked if you haven't yet done so.

Hello everyone!

I took fresh pictures yesterday after quick wash.
Sprayed little bit of Bouncer´s bead juice before drying.
I am not so big fan of this kind of products, but it boosts wax layer, nice gloss.
I am still considering if i will get ceramic coating in next winter.

Nothing amazing here, car works without any problems so far.
In summertime it is my dailydriver.
This summer i have driven approx 2000-2500kilometers total.

When i bought this car from Holland october 2018, i was trying to sell Clio Renaultsport 197 since july 2018.
I thought that clio will be sold before May 2019.
Unfortunately Clio is still for sale, i reduced asking price from 12500euros to 9500euros, still no interest.
I am so amazed there is no any potential buyers as car is as good example like BMW. Original and really much money invested for maintenance and detailing.

If there is no any interest for 330CI, i will drive next summer and do little maintenance over wintertime.
I also have little bit second thoughts if i sell this 330CI, i know it will be difficult to find another good one from my area (Finland / EU).

Quick pictures from yesterday when i was driving in countryside.
