My new 'to me' Tourer

Hi guys, been watching the forum for a wee while and finally getting round to posting up. Just sold my E39 M5 as needed something more practical.
I initially was looking at an E60 M5 tourer but thought better of it as one of those with a pipe rack and ladders on the roof would cause upset. Although would be the fastest ladder rack in Scotland!!
I opted for a 330i tourer instead. (economy is not my thing )

Cream leather,
Sat Nav
Parrot Kit
Paranoia sunroof
Idrive etc etc
Here's a couple of snaps..









Alan.

Lives in constant fear and anxiety!

Nice exterior colour. Wouldn't of been put off by putting a ladder on the M5s roof though!

Like the colour and the leather combination, very nice E91!
Guess some black grill will finish it off nicely

Loving that!

A performance front grill in gloss black, to match the shadowline trim, would finish it off nicely.

Surprised to see you have that spec (Nav etc) and the original owner didn't spec BT, or is that what you meant by "parrot"?

I've just swapped from an E39 M5 to a tourer too. Oil burner though
Wheels look good. What colour are they?

Nice. Second person to report about replacing an M5 for a 3 Touring in the last couple of days. Obviously seems the sensible way forward after M power.

Alan, Lovely car.
Liked twin exhaust conversion, wheels and leather interior.

Did you get the wheels refurb?

Thanks for the comments guys.

When I found out about the Lemon Dekota Leather I thought yeuch but the guy said I had to have a look as pictures wouldn't do it justice. To me it just looks cream so I'm happy with that although I'm convinced the dashboard is not 100% black...

Re the upgrades. Strange as no Zenon's either but speaker upgrade yet poor spec stereo... Sounds the bolloks though. The exhuast conversion was around 500 inc new diffuser although wonder if I should colour code it or something?
Wheels came with the car and are dark grey but think the rears could do with a little spacing as think they set too far in. Brings it more up to date I think. Phone is through the Parrot car kit but think its better as more features through it rather than BMW set up (or so I'm told..)
Where's the best place to buy a black grill and any other things I should be thinking of? Don't want to spend lots of cash at the end of the day it is getting used as part time work horse...
