Yeah I agree, I bought it used from some kid who doesnt know anything about cars. First thing is first though, I gotta get a new TC and then new rear shocks and springs since he lowered the car but didnt do it right. Cant have more than 2 people in the car or rear tires start to rub the wheel wells. Its gonna take a bit of work, but this car is worth it!

Here's my "new to me" 2005 330. Bone stock and probably will stay that way. I traded in a 1997 328ci on it a couple of weeks ago. Now I can't wait for warm weather to arrive.

Very nice car, but I dont think its completely stock, it seems to have clear corner lights, I thought they were stock amber.

Beautiful, you're going to love it, however, the "good" weather is still quite a ways off ...

I believe they are correct, my 04 has clear corners and led tails, hopefully getting some stealth ambers soon to take full advantage of this though

Always loved the E46 convertible. Would have gotten one out of the 3 coupes I've owned if not for the extra weight and reduction in performance. Car looks sweet though.

I'm absolutely the wrong guy to address the color of the corner lights. I'm a BMW driver/lover but not a student of what was on a given model year.

This 330 drives as well as my wife's '08 G35x, though I think the G35x is faster. Both are definitely a kickass cars to drive.

Alright, took just a couple pictures.

My interior is very confused right now since I have the black sport seats in there but a plan is underway, and man is it going to be drool worthy. Already picked up a black carpet, entire dash/glove box, center console, armrest, footrest and some little pieces here and there. Just need the dye :4ngie:

Confused
