Shane's 330d LCI M SPORT (New pics on page 2)

I spent a while searching for the right example. Ideally, I was after a Lci, auto with all the spec but I soon realised that I'd be waiting forever to find the right car so I ended up compromising a little and went for a manual with a huge spec and ended up finding this beast which is an absolute gem.

The spec really persuaded me that this was the right car, a few features to note:

Metallic Bluewater 330d. It's the lci 245bhp variant and it's a rare manual too.

- individual sound system
- servotronic steering
- 335d brake setup
- comfort access/keyless go
- electric folding and reverse dipping mirrors
- full grey Dakota leather and heated seats
- bi-xenon adaptive headlights with high beam assist
- LUX led angel eye bulbs
- front/rear pdc
- hill assist
- pro wide screen navigation with latest maps and 7 digit postcode search
- TV / BMW connected drive
- USB/Aux with hard drive internal storage
- partial electric front seats
- DAB radio
- 2010 LCI layout, heated seat buttons further up and changing levels of auto
- split sliding front armrest
- rear armrest with twin cupholders
- 2x 12V ports in the rear
- BMW light package with full LED replacement
- M3 front control arms and wishbones
- M3 rear arms
- powerflex rear subframe bushes
- Full alignment to m3 spec (rear camber is looking more aggressive)
- F10 M5 gearknob
- E90 M3 Tri stitch steering wheel
- Piano black trim
- Genuine M3 rear boot lip spoiler
- split folding rear seats
- Genuine Gloss Black Performance grills
- SSDD Carbon Fibre Aero Front Splitters
- Genuine BMW Gloss Black Mirror caps
- Genuine BMW Black exhaust tips
- Bimecc 12mm hub spacers all round
- 19" M3/M4 Style alloys












Future plans

- Retrofit Combox

Congrats on the purchase.

And already modding it which I like to see. Rims look good.

And I prefer the new plates you've fitted.

Surprising vist to the dealer today to get a price for a brake fluid change and a Vehicle check after both showing as due next month on the service screen. I got some prices from my local BWM specilaist but ideally wanted to keep the FBMWSH that the car has and was quoted 150 for the both to be done. My local BMW specialist wanted 139.55 so was pleasantly supprised so booked the car in for next week to have the work carried out i was asked if i wanted to wait for the car which i agreed as can work at the dealership and was asked if i wanted the car valeted in which i kindly said no and she was so shocked she said are you in a rush i said no i would rather clean the car myself. haha

Small update.

Was planning to purchase carbon mirrors covers but after some thought I purchased these OEM gloss black mirror caps, I'm pleased with how there look as it now matches the window trims perfectly.

What's people's thoughts

Very nice car and very good spec!
The normal plates look much nicer than tacky pressed one IMO, and plate holders just look too messy.
As for the mirrors, I've always prefered colour coded myself

Thank you the spec is fantastic and I'm so pleased i went with the manual. Yea i agree the normal plates look better i have also ordered brand new plates from the BMW Snows dealership the car came from as i don't like screws in plates as it always damages the plate. so going to stick them on.

Thank you your the first person who has agreed with me and think it works. The front end now looks so aggressive. I am keep the standard mirror caps as well so if i change my mind i can swap them back in 10mins.

Gloss black caps look spot on. Matches the other elements perfectly.

I like - the black looks good against the body colour.
Think I need to do the same to my chrome trims!
