New to BMW..320d M-sport Tourer in Le-Mans Blue!

Hi guys! Picked up my first BMW on Saturday. Immediately fell in love and drove to Wales (from Wolverhampton) for a short break with the missus and two dogs!

Two things...

First: The lights inside the boot don't work (the pillar ones and the boot door), could this be a fuse or the festoons/bulbs themselves?

Secondly: I see there are coders able to change a few things, alarm chirps, leaving home lights etc.. What software do these people use as I have a OBD2>USB cable already that I used previous cars?

Anywho, on to the pictures, spent all day Sunday detailing the car as it was "swirl-central" before-hand. Looks a lot better now, although the "telling off" from the missus about my sunburn was fun! ha!













Got a few plans in mind!

Very nice!
I love the Le Mans blue, it was originally my first choice but I couldn't resist the red one I found.

Thanks Dest. Saw a few others, greys, silvers etc but fell in love with the Blue straight away. Although I'm partial to a red car myself (had 3)

Best colour IMO
I had to settle for white as I couldn't find another LMB one

I refused to have silver or black, so it was either the blue or dark grey.
I'm yet to find another 330d in red, so loving the rarity!

Will have a look now pal! I had a black car once. Looked epic when clean, but only lasted about 35 seconds.

yep, I seem to remember not being able to find the correct fuse with the fuse diagram but traced with a circuit schematic. I think the glove box light wasn't working too as it was on the same circuit but memory is rusty.

I'm almost certain my glovebox light is working. I'll double check tonight.

Thanks Alex, luckily this came up with the spec I wanted. I wanted the bolster adjustment but without leather! My most favourite feature so far.

Thanks Simmo, just a few tweaks here and there. Hoping to bag some BBS LM's. Although common, I think they suit it perfectly. Maybe a new exhaust with a cheeky remap. Most definitely need to sort the Audio ASAP.
