    Hi people I just got my first BMW it's a 320ci E46 2001 (51) she has 57k on and in black and before that I had a 106 gti there fun but it's such a big difference I wish I got a bmw ages ago coming from a little rattle box to a smooth hard pulling car has also made me appreciate these bmw's so much more, basically if anyone could give me any tips and tricks that would be brilliant, I have added a few pictures below so check it out and see what you think

    Nice mate

    I'd get some led interior bulbs and number plate lights, fit the 330ci dial surrounds and get a set of the led rear lights and leave it as that as it looks too nice to mess with too much

    Yer I do want to keep it standard pretty much but do a few little things to make it more my own touch rather than just any old bmw, led bulbs would be good I also am thinking about keeping the wheels but getting them black not really shore yet though, first thing on my list is a service just for a piece of mind I constantly feel like something might go wrong because my luck with cars is just terrible but I heard as long as they are looked after there bomb proof

    I changed my oil, oil filter and air filter yesterday i paid £75 for the parts and took me about an hour tops, the drive is so much better, much smoother and much more responsive

    I was actually going to pay for a service but now you have said that I'm just going to do it myself, I'm not a mechanic or anything but I'm not an idiot I have done a bit of work on other cars like 106's and stuff like that but everything's more exposed in the engine bay if you know what I mean it doesn't look so complicated and hidden like these bmw's but like I said after reading your post I looked on YouTube at a few videos and it's ridiculously easy and these garages want hundreds to do it, might have to open a garage myself
