Introducing my 330i M Sport

Well i have owned it for a couple of months. I paid to have it detailed when i first got it but didnt take any pictures of the amazing results! I gave it a clean today and thought i would post some pictures. Its a nice little spec, with Xenons, sat nav, bluetooth, folding mirrors, heated seat, front and rear PDC, auto with paddle shift. No leather however which is weird giving its got most of the other boxes ticked. Im not to bothered as the seats are mega comfty. I will keep one eye on ebay for a pre lci leather interior but they are like hens teeth for a touring.

I have got some plans for it (already changed the wood trim to silver). Im after some new wheels, cant decide between MV4's, 313 or CSL style as the minute. Ive got no spare so leaning towards mv4's at the minute as runflats dont bother me. I cant decide if black grills will look any good? What do you think?

I have run a few tanks of vpower through and the difference really is night and day from when i first got it. So much smooth and quieter. Im off to see if you can do the exhaust mod i did on my 130i with the vacuum pipe i think its called? Made it sound even better, best use of golf tee ever.

These are the results after snow foam, wash and quick detailing spray. Its come up very well











Comments welcome

Black grilles, 313's and some blackline tail lights would be my choice.

If you can find some 18" E90 M3 wheels even better.

Nice Car.

I am 6 weeks in on a 2010 LCI 330i touring in Space Grey.

So will be watching on your quest for wheels. I too have an itch for some black 19" CSL Alloys.

Pity that brown leather was only for LCI's as I have it in min and it is fantastic. Light colour really lifts interior.

I take it yours is a N53 engine?

N53.. Is that the 272ps version. If so yes mate that's the one in mine.

I'm going insane looking at wheels!! Really don't know what to go with.

You have managed to get yourself a very rare car there! Not many lci 330i touring about!
