My 09' Bmw 320i LCI in Lemansblue

Hi guys,

New to this forum, but I've been browsing here and there looking for small exterior mods to my car!

Brief intro:

My first car was a thirsty Mitsubishi 380 VRX picture below, averaged 15L per 100KMS, grannymode I'd achieve around.. 13.5MAX. Minor mods were sports exhaust and bigger intake, I was 17 then.



I was studying at Uni, part time at Coles and I decided to buy wholesale cars interstate and sell them down here locally..

I purchased a 05' B7 Audi A4 with only 50KMS, clean title, brought it down here, fixed a few things to get it pass the pits and sold it for a bit more



Then a few months later, I found this 08' Honda accord V6 Luxury for a decent price, it was advertised saying it was @ 67KMS. Brought it down, put it up on carsales, got the report.. Said it was apparently reported with 180KMS last year..
The title was clean but the report stated this.. Anyhow, I did sell this in the end still with profit.. I was so fkn dumb though. .



After all of that I decided to focus on my study and sell my 380, ended up selling to a mate for 10K, only had 75KMS.

Looked at a GOLF GTI My10 model and a 07 R32, Audi B8 Sline and the Bmw 3 series..

Put a deposit in for a 09' LCI updated lemansblue one in NSW, Newcastle, it was advertised with 103KMS, got told after deposit it had now done 115KM, asked for 1K off the price, he disagreed so I asked for my deposit back and kept looking,
Same night I got a call back from a private seller in WA, exact same model but with 60KMS, and agreed to my price. only 2K difference with the one in NSW..

Bought it the same night and got it freighted to Tas with PatrickAutocare who did a awesome job! Delivery took 10 business days!

Anyway, picked it up, pretty happy but the sound system is a bit bland for my taste.. The accord had better, looking to upgrade in the near future.






Thanks for reading and I hope to get some ideas/question if you have any!

Nope, so obvious if it comes with manual but no log books it's been tampered with.. Maybe it was a taxi but I'm sure only base models come in taxi's..

Was always suss when I got told to change the brake pedal rubber when it was going through the pits.

No, I have seen a Pheonix Yellow M3 around, but not for a while. I did have a Carbon Black E46 M3 which is still around, it was a great car.

Few questions to the people who own the same car or so..

I've read on this forum other cars side mirrors go down when in reverse? Mine doesn't do that, also DVD doesn't work either on the car.
Also is it easy to change my screen to the 8.8" with tv?

Cheers guys.

ALSO! Any tips/things on the car you've found out? Im slow..

Your mirror will only dip if you have memory seats I think.

That's what I thought too.

On mine (2007) the side mirror selector has to be on the RHS for the RHS mirror to dip. If it's in the middle or left, the RHS mirror won't dip in reverse. Could be worth a try?

Maybe, on the E46 and early E90s it was only if you had memory seats as that was where the setting was saved.

OP, check your manual.
