12' Space Gray E90 320d M-Sport
Hi guys,

So we wanted to trade the wifes polo for a X3 but after seeing a E90 in Msport avail and it also being half the price of the X3, and paying the same as the Polo it was done.

So we ended up with a 2012 Space Grey 320D Auto M-sport with 148400 on it.
Have a few things to do and sort out.

Some pics looking at it the day

No Xenons though Thumbdown

Someone clever swopped out the Trim pieces before trading it in

Common Problem - already ordered the inner part

Steering needs some recover or a new one one-day

Bumper to be sorted out - and needs Gloss Black Kidney grills

Congrats bud.. About the trim plates.. Perhaps they were spec'd in the original build of the car?

Not the first motorsport lol90 I've seen with wooden trims.

As for the headlights.. You could always go DTM. @kpm_330 can tell you more about this and the cost involved.

RE: 12' Space Gray E90 320d M-Sport
Thank you for removing the tint on the tail lights, I just don't understand why people do that..... dunno anymore

I think deep inside all of us like the idea of a second hand car that has some issues because that means we can start wrenching immediately. Rofl

Congrats and wishing you many happy safe miles. Thumbs

If you are interested in something, No matter what it is
Go at it full speed
Embrace it with both arms
Love it
Live it
Be it
Above all become passionate about it

Congrats, also was not a fan of the tinted tails. The good thing is that these cars rarely have much wrong mechanically. You will find yourself at cosmetic changes quickly.

Was the bumper sorted out prior to delivery?

No, no, he didn’t slam you, he didn’t bump you, he didn’t nudge you… he *rubbed* you. And rubbin, son, is racin’. – Harry Hogge, Days of Thunder
