330 clubsport ... updated to include pics!

Well...

After a very long day hindered a LOT by HSBC & RBS being inept finally got the car and headed home

Care truly is spotless .. and ive never seen service history like it! Every bill its ever had - and all from BMW bar a couple of tyres and MOT's. The girlie before even had wiper blades & batteries from BMW.

Car been standing since Nov 12, so took my time for firt 20 miles to properly heat it up - and then floored it... its lovely

Pics to follow.... need to wash it as covered in shite from the motorway!

Fit yourself a double din unit such as the Pioneer mate, with a double din fascia adaptor. It'll look plenty OEM enough but have a great modern head unit.

Estoril looks beautiful.

Get yourself on EvoTechnik or E46zone if you want to have fun with other e46s, as there are so many enthusiasts about.

I've never liked the Clubsport rear spoiler, but meh.

Get yourself some black kidney grilles asap though! that's about the only thing I'd change on this lovely, mint looking car

I'm still tempted to pick up an E46 as an every day driver / shopping slag / and for the other half to cut her teeth on (She'd prefer a Z4 mind). I've never owned one even though it's the car that got me into BMWs originally.

That ain't Estoril Dave, that's Atlantis, (EDIT, can't tell on my I phone, turned up brightness and it looks different again.)

RC mate, she looks a cracker!

Ok Mate, glad I ain't the only one. I'd lose the CSL splitters personally.

Given her a pasting yet?

I like the CSL splitters. I'd just add a black kidney grille to match!

Those arent CSL splitters ... they are standard clubsport parts

Nothing on the car is aftermarket - and thats pretty much how im keeping it bar the headunit as i need something other then minidisc! Could have lived with CD ... but minidisc is a bit too much.

Drivewise... ive hammered it a few times and there is a real danger of licence losing at some point soon!

Booked in for oil change this week as service interval is too long in my mind - says next service in 9500miles and was last serviced in June.
