My 330d :)

Well after all the shit thats happened over the last week I am fially the proud owner of a 330d M Sport. The car has high miles but 1 owner and a comprehensive history, and it feels as tight as a nun's chuff.

Its got pro nav, front & rear sensors, phone cradle, aux in etc etc and Im still finding new things with it, a nice touch is the puddle lights on the doors. Still getting to grips with the I-drive system, not as good as Audi MMI but not overly complicated when you get the hang. Beige leather (is this the right colour or is it called something else?) with piano black trim which is kinda glittery in the light. Really happy with it so far, I have some future plans for sure but thats gonna be for spring time and beyond.

I know its a usual run of the mill M Sport but heres the piccies anyhow









The smile is starting to return...

Congrats on the car, you've got a peach there!

As for the chrome/ally look climate control rings... you need to get the whole unit, the knobs do not come off. I purchased a set of eBay from a later spec car (make sure the right knob doesn't say 'REST') and had a fault code cleared. Bit of a ballache but hey coupled with the LCI cup holder covers, chrome volume control on the Nav Pro and auto lights switch it looks much nicer inside my cockpit. Sometimes its the little touches!

I love your black gloss panels, do you know if they were done like that or purchased as OE parts?

Enjoy!

Thanks for the info Mr Singh. My right dial does say 'rest' on it anyway.

The black trims are oem as far as I know, just piano black. I like them as most ive seen on these have been ali/wood.

Your leather looks like "oyster" to give it the proper BMW name.

Nice car.

Very nice.

I didnt think they did Oyster on the pre LCI, but it certainly looks like it.

Far better (IMHO) than the all Beige with pale carpets.

How many miles has it done?

Looks very nice mate. The Lemon leather is very bright!! Keep it clean and it will look ace all the time.

Should have blanked the plates out with yellow and white rather than the horrible black.

Will you remap her?

Looks like Oyster/Black to me too but I defer to those who have been around longer. And with Piano Black trim it looks pretty lush.

First pic looks like it's leaning a bit. Haven't broken it already have you?

The leather looks the same as mine did, which was called Lemon Dakota.

It's definitely lemon.

My favourite after Jade, and a good contrast

You've got a nice clean example there and the seats look superb for the mileage.

Going to mod it at all ?
