Hi Chaps. New E90 Owner here :)

well after my 330i died (head gasket... shocker!!) ive been floating a bit aimlessly. So decided to take the plunge and get myself something else. Looked for something a bit special. Ended up with the following:

-2005 E90 325i SE

But this is no ordinary 325i SE. It was built as a BMW demonstration car, and its original owner for its first year was BMW, so this thing is loaded up to the absolute hilt.

-Arctic Blue Metallic Paint
-17" Staggered M sport Alloys
-M sport Suspension
-M sport Steering wheel
-Electric sports seats with electric bolsters
-Active Steering
-Full Navigation System
-Hi-Fi Speaker System (sounds epic)
-TV system
-Extended interior lighting
-Bluetooth with Phone prep
-Dakota Lemon Yellow with Black contrast interior
-Sliding front arm-rest
-Brushed Aluminium Trim
-6 speed manual
-Exterior illuminating door handles
-PDC
-Drive off assistant
-Factory coated heat reflective glass
-Tyre Pressure Monitoring System
-Auto wipers and auto lights
-full i-drive system with OBC/Diagnostics etc etc

the only things it doesnt have that I would have wished were on it:

-Xenon headlights with angel eyes (but of course would never have been an option on this year)
-Electric Folding Mirrors

Basically, it's not really missing much . I suspect at the time of its launch it was pretty much the highest spec 3 series you could get. The bodywork and interior look immaculate and theres not a mark on it, it's a testament to the previous owner who clearly cared a lot for this car:

hehe i'm afraid this one is going to be kept standard. I have absolutely no plans for it whatsoever, as the only mods i'd want are just too complicated on an E90.

Actually I lie a little. I will be on the lookout for some LCI headlights, so that I can have OEM angel eyes. Just to freshen up the front end of the car.

But other than that. She's staying as she is.

i kinda like the mixed up combo of SE and sport. Kinda best of both. But as above, I would probably be interested in adding a lip spoiler, as i feel the E90 rear looks a little stubby without it

it has 59k Miles on the clock with full main dealer service history (it's been serviced and maintained at the dealer it was bought from since new). It also has been under a BMW insured warranty since the original expired and the balance of that warranty has been transfered to me. I may choose to renew this just for peace of mind.
