First BMW - E90 330D M Sport

Hello everyone,

Picked this up on Tuesday, 2006 330D M Sport, 49k, FSH, etc etc...



Had a 1200 mile round trip to get it (Fly from Inverness > Luton, drive back)

It's my first BMW, auto and RWD car so quite an experience!

Needs some tidying up, wheels are getting refurbished next week, and I'll need to machine polish it to remove some swirls. Aside from that, delighted!

Going to make an attempt and hand polishing it this weekend, so will take some better pictures then

Chris

Sweet ride & congrats. What better than a long road trip to break her in. Do you plan to refurb the alloys to OEM colour?

Aye was a good trip back up the road!

Did consider going anthacite with the alloys, but I've decide to stay with silver. Looks cleaner IMO!

Anthracite and LMB are a match made in heaven mate, google for some pics to see what I mean

Congratulations on getting arguably the best car in the range and in the best colour, good luck with it :-)

Danny, cheers mate! If I can get mine as clean as yours I'll be happy haha.

Changed the front grilles to black versions:



Also changed the rear lights to depo smoked versions. Wanted the proper BMW ones but couldn't face paying 300 for a set of lights



Wheels should of been refurbished this week, but my rear tyres have been sitting in a depot hundreds of miles away for a week Going for anthracite now though

Edit, car really needs a clean!
