Hi Everyone ,
Well since first test driving a two door 325i in 1985 I promised myself that one day i'd have one! So last week I bought an E46 325Ci SE. It was a two owner motor with a decent history. But at 11 years old & with 90k there could have been plenty wrong! So I asked our trusty mechanic to give it a full inspection. Fortunately I hadn't missed too much & he gave it a reasonably clean bill of health!
Here she is:
So far i've put on two new tires to match the rears, they were nearly new but the fronts were old and shot! I then had a full geometry alignment done, and a mid service oil change as I'd no idea what oil was being used. I got a new interior mirror (old one was from an e36 so no clown nose) for £10 from a breakers and fitted that & a business CD player for £40 from the same car!
Future Plans: Replace the two front wings as they are scabby (already have good used spares to hand) & look for some good 17" or 18" wheels. And hopefully enjoy the experience!
