Well I had an eventful memorial weekend, flying to Chicago to pick up my first BMW and then driving her 1,500 miles back home to Montana

The car is a jet black '06 330i, which some of you may recognize as COTM from I believe April, 2009. It was purchased through the forum classifieds, and I was lucky to be able to work with Nevets1, the original owner, all-around great guy, and the man responsible for what is, IMO, a supremely classy build.

The car started with premium, sport, and cold weather packages, and then Nevets1 added...

- Full M-tech aero kit
- Carbon fiber splitters
- Carbon fiber diffuser
- Carbon fiber rear spoiler / mirror covers
- Rogue SSK
- BMW Performance Strut Brace
- Clutch Delay Valve delete
- M-tech door sills
- OEM Aluminum pedals
- BMW Performance shift knob
- BMW Performance boot
- Blacklines
- Koni FSD/Eibach pro kit
- 19" MorrVS8's-Signature Silver Forged wheels
- Goodyear F1 asym. 245F/275R
- BMW Performance intake
- BMW Performance exhaust-catback
- Matte black shadowlines
- 35% tint
- BMW Performance steering wheel
- OEM carbon fiber center console
- OEM M3 iDrive knob
- OEM aluminum e-brake handle
- Vitex amber gones
- RPI scoops

Some pictures of mine from the trip home...













And I have to steal a few of Nevets1's pics for my OP until I can shoot a few more of my own. As you can tell he's got some skills behind the lens, so check out his original thread if you haven't already for many more great shots...







And I also need to poach his outstanding video of the performance exhaust doing its thing...

YouTube clip

That's it for now. I'm thrilled to be an owner and hope to add more photos, maybe vids as I get to know the car and take it forward in the same spirit Nevets1 started. We're thinking maybe brakes next...

I don't know how many times I caught myself checking out the for sale thread when it was up. The car truly is done to perfection. Glad it went to another forum member. Enjoy the hell out of it. 330i's =

Looks fantastic, only bit I'm not keen on is the spoiler.

SMC08i sums up my thoughts exactly. I think I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time to snatch her up. I was only browsing lightly at the time; hadn't planned on buying for months but when I saw her pop up I scrambled to make it happen.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome! I'm looking for local groups and I think the best option is a crew of nutters operating out of Calgary, so I hope to hook up with them for a cruise and shoot soon...
