330i - 1st Day after delivery pictures!

2004 330i - Saph Blk/Nat Brown, SP, CWP, PP, Xenons, OEM alarm

Here's lots of pics of my 330i the first day after I took delivery. The car is amazing, I'm loving everyday with it and I have no complaints. I'll post some impressions after I have the car for a while, I've only put about 140 miles or so and I've had it for 3 days, but so far it's perfect in everyway. This is my first time posting pics, so lets see how it goes....

edit - Sorry the pics have poor quality, I don't have a digital camera so I used my favorite Cannon SLR 35mm and had the photo place put them on a CD.

Beautiful car! Now you have to keep the car as clean as shown in the pictures. I owned a black car for 7 years and swore I would never again get a black car.

You know, those wheels look so good, I really think I like them more than the ZHP's - I may give up the ZHP just to get SP and those wheels. I don't care about losing the 18" rims.

very, very nice car.

IMO, ZHP wheels look better, albeit a tad heavier of course, I may be biased.

Natty brown is beautiful.

Here are a few before and after pictures I took.

First 2 pictures are with the factory amber lights (turn signal, side marker and rear tail lights) and the second two are the replacement clear lenses....more modifications to come soon.

Enjoy the pics! Anyone have any other exterior modifications that I may have not thought of?

And no wise cracks about needing to wash the car....I know

Install was super easy...go here ( http://www.bmw330ci.com/DIY_Files.htm) to read about installing the clears in place of the ambers. There are also quite a few other do it yourself projects listed here. Good Luck!

Feel free to contact me with any questions....glad to help!

Production was completed on Feb 12th or 13th, I'm not sure exactly but I know it was one of those days. I have a 6speed, so I shouldn't have any sliptronic problems.

Sand 'ette. I didn't want to have to deal with the leather fading and cracking out here in AZ. I love the sand and black but I did seriously think about getting black. I also considered Nat Brown, but would rather save the $1400 and buy more cool toys!

Hey Moderato and ieboy,

Did you guys take those hideous airbag stickers off your visors yet? The one on the passenger side just peeled right off but I had to really work on the driver's side visor. I finally got it all off but there is a little glue residue left on both visors. I bought some Goo Gone (the citrus stuff) and am considering using it get the rest of the glue off.
