My Bluewater E92

Well thought seeing as i'd washed the car today and the sun was out, for probably the last time this year I'd take a couple of pics. Bought it end of August this year from a dealer in Scotland, but funnily enough the car used to belong to a member on here albeit with different wheels (Jamese93) who I must say has looked after the car in the year he owned it very well!

It's a 325i M sport Highline

well enough chat, here's the pics..hard to get a handle on the colour in the sunlight as it looks almost silver! so included a pic of when James owned it in the snow which probably shows off the colour better.









It's my first BMW, and I think it will take some beating to get another I like so much! Can't fault the car at all.

cheers

David.

Very nice, well done. The combination works very well and the new wheels are a welcomed edition.

Where did you get the 313Ms from? A (the) dealer? Did they put them on to sweeten the deal? Or did you put them on after?

Nice - met James and saw this in the flesh, the BW & CR is a really nice combination. Wheels look spot on too!

Yea, It's hard to picture until you see it in the flesh, it doesnt sound good but I agree and think it goes really well!

Yea I see what you mean, in one pic it does look like it could do with them. will have a look at it from other angles and see what I think but you could be right!


Was considering putting black grills back on it as per first pic, what do you's think?


thanks for the comments guys

Sweet car...

I think you need to change the grill to match the window trim... It will finish the car off nicely.

Car looks lovely - really like that colour and still pretty rare.

Wheels look great and the BMW performance grilles would go down a treat IMO

Dizzle - lol, could be an option

Kal, that was my thinking!

M3-Fast, fancy a swap? Yea Like I say i've only ever saw bluewater 4 door's, never coupe or cab...sure they obviously exist just I haven't saw any - yet.

Suppose I could try the grills and if I dont like, can sell them on, not the end of the world, maybe a christmas present for it!


cheers.

LOL. Thought I'd come and have a look and see if you'd posted!

It looks great and I think I prefer the new wheels - nice one

At least the buggers won't crack.

Grills - I had the performance ones and then got bored so changed the back! Nice to distinguish it from the four cylinder cars...

As for the badge etc - sorry fella, just found them in a drawer again and will send to you shortly!! Oops.

And snow - speedo registered well over the motorway limit when I was getting it out of that mess.....

Anyway, looks excellent and glad you like it as much as I did. Retro ride going well but miss the bimmer - lots!
