    New EAC member has arrived :D

    Been hunting down a decent 330ci auto for my dad for 6 months.. We had a budget and I planned to find him the best condition/spec one i could find for the money. This finally came up last week at the right £.
    Went for a viewing and test today to find its owned by an enthusiast. ;)

    She's a 2001 330ci sport auto with all the M tec extras!
    FSH
    M sport suspension.
    RARE M sport carbon fibre interior pack.
    Tv sat nav
    Wind deflector
    Mint body work
    Refurbished alloys
    M3 light weight Hardtop!!

    She will be out with us on the next few meets for sure ;) my old man is over the moon and can't wait for the sun to shine :D

    Thanks Allan ;)
    She's an oldy but having looked at newer more expensive 330s this ones in fantastic condition with low milage for its age.

    There's hundreds for sale but 95% of them are heaps... Took us 6 months of looking to find a good 330 in our budget.

    Yes I've always liked the E46 vert. Very close to a Zed just two extra seats and a bigger boot! I'm sure I'll be borrowing it now and again ;)

    First thing to do will be a full detail polish n wax.

    Never seen the carbon dash and interior pack before.. I'm told it was an option from the factory?

    Not sure if you have done this already Liam but pop your VIN into the VIN Decoder, it should show all the option fitted when new ;)
