Individual e93

Spec:
Velvet Blue Metallic with Champagne Merino Interior and Piano Black Trim.
330i (N53) Auto

Mods so far:
- OEM 313's with 12mm spacers
- M3 Edition Black Chrome Grills


To Do:
- LCI Lights
- Performance Exhaust
- Eibach Springs
- Performance Diffuser
- White Halo Bulbs

Its great being back in a petrol after years of owning a diesel. With it being a NA engine its taking me a while to get used to the power delivery. I love the colour and it certainly pops in the sunlight from blue to purple.

The only niggle I have is that there is a slight metallic rattle at low revs when pulling off, sounds like it is coming from the exhaust. Has anyone experience this before? Its covered under warranty i just don't want endless trips to my dealer to sort it out.

Nice combo. Love that blue, it's like a more purple San Marino.

Thats probably the best description of it, sometimes it can be more purple than blue. I personally really like it, i remember first seeing it on the old 330 clubsports.

Thanks I love the colour combo - the interior really sold it for me. The fact that all the carpets and trim is black and only the leather is champagne makes a big difference. I've seen a few individual cars where the plastics match the leather and it can be a bit much.

Cheers.

The merino leather is lovely. Any tips for looking after it? mine needs a good clean. I've got some Dr Leather and a leather brush and was going to tackle it with that.

I normally just use the DR Leather wipes.
As mine is blue and doesn't get used much I only clean it every few months.

As yours is a vert and light coloured you may need to do it more often.
