Martin here. I took ownership of this 2001 325ti SE Compact 3 weeks ago and I love it. 51000 miles and only 2 owners. Personally I would have preferred not to have a cream/faux walnut interior but hey, I got the car in black which is what I wanted and besides I spend most of my time looking out of the window at where I'm going anyway!
My head is spinning with ideas of all the mods I want to do (don't worry, I have already read the "what would you call chav mods" thread and there was nothing on there that I had in mind!!)
First on the list are new wiper blades, upgrade the lighting (HIDs and LEDs), change the "clear" side repeaters which have yellowed over time, and sort out the paint job. Its mainly in good condition but there are a few scratches here and there that need sorting and it needs a good going over to get rid of the swirl marks. Engine and mechanics are in great nick but then again I'm not much of a grease monkey so it's mostly going to be aesthetics that I'll concentrate on to start with.
Here's a few pics. I haven't taken any myself yet, these are from the seller's ad!
See you around
