Ettiene's 330i

Ettiene's 330i
So having sold my previous daily, the E36 318iS, I bought this,
A '04 E46 330i manual six speed.

Stock except for the diff swap.

Car is in fair condition but honestlt speaking my E36 was in a way way better overall condition bodywork wise.

Mechanicly though this M54 is 100%.
New radiator, top hose etc.

Did a quick wax just to get her a bit more presentable, she was dying for some wax!

The body work has a lot of small dents and scratches which will be sorted in the coming months..


But as always suspension, engine and chassis will recieve priority.

So things I need to source is ( shout out if any of you can help out );
1. Front strut bar/ brace,
2. Rear taillights ( mine is cracked),
3. Window trim ( mine is chrome, would like black one's),
4. Mtech bumpers or if anyones know if Autostyle CSL bumpers fit without any trouble.

Any feedback or words of wisdom will be apprieciated..[Image: 48d38c94edd38850edd7f31abb067d79.jpg][Image: 4365f96c503e4cfe862a8ae3a310db75.jpg]

Interesting the chrome window trim. I like them on the white e46s.

RE: Ettiene's 330i
Congrats on the new car, many happy miles

I think that car in that color looks soo much more beautiful than the Msport. The e46 330i looks lower and tucked in nicely and put together like this.
Love it
