I'm Sean, and I'm from Gloucestershire. I'm 22 years old and on Friday I bought my second ever car and my first BMW.
I bought a 2004 BMW 330d Sport saloon (manual) in Black Sapphire. I've come from a 1999 Peugeot 306 HDI Dturbo which I still have and really like, but I wanted something that is quicker and more suited to my commute, saying that the 306 took the 50+ miles a day in its stride and never let me down.
Unfortunately the dealer I bought the car from put two budget tyres on the 330d despite me stating I'd rather them not put any tyres on if they weren't going to put decent tyres on it, but I'll take it steady while I adjust from FWD to RWD and get some better tyres on there in a couple of months.
I need to get a few things sorted engine-wise first before I carry on with anything else on the car. I want to make sure the swirl-flaps are sorted, and change all of the filters and crankcase breather. Then the plan is to tidy it up a bit, it isn't too bad at the moment. It could benefit from a new gear knob, a good clean/polish/wax and maybe getting the steering wheel re-trimmed. Once all of that is done I want to upgrade the headunit to a Dynavin. Also get the wheel arches protected as they're nice and tidy at the moment. Then I'd just concentrate on driving it as it seems pretty solid other than that.
Looking forward to finding out more information and advice on here.
