I have a 5 speed 330Ci in blue back home. My first purchase in ~2004. It sits all year waiting for me to go back for vacations and take it out.

It has around 130k miles, new clutch, AutoSolutions SSK, bilstein B8 shocks, E9X generation style 162 wheels, black leather interior, alcantara black headliner and gets worked on every time I see it. What a fantastic car.

Great Spanish vacation car.

AS SSK is intriguing. I might have to email them to enquire, but import duties into the EU could kill the idea.

The SSK gets into the EU in a suitcase, so no import fees there

Had to rep E46 at Valencia BMW Cars & Coffee! Too bad I didn't get any pics when the lot was packed with bimmers, but I hope it brought back a fond memory for someone!

I adore this thing! And you guys are right, the lenses completely changed the car. Again, not perfect, but I am loving every second.

New headlights made that car looks ten years younger. Nicely done!

Thank you sir. I honestly feel the same! There is only so much of those headlight restore kits and buffing you can do to 20 year old plastic. I'm so pleased with it.
