My 330Xi ; A few pics - Parts too!!!
 
12 Attachment(s)
Been slowly upgrading my 04 330Xi....

Here are some pics.....

Upgrades:
- H&R sports springs and Bilstein Sports shocks (1.5" lowered)
- SS Brake lines
- Rims refinished and looking brand new (M6)
- Angel Eyes + New headlight lens
- Blacked out grills
- M3 SMG Paddle Steering wheel (with oversized gun metal shifters)
- Parrot bluetooth handsfree Car Kit (gotta check this out; mutes radio on incoming calls, plays through stereo, sounds amazing; check out Parrot CK3200LS http://www.parrotshopping.com/ca/p_p...wed.aspx?f=203)
- Smoked Turn Signals, Clear Side Markers, and Smoked Clear Rear tailights
- Ultrabright light upgrades for Fog Lights and High Beams (DRL)
- ECIS Cold Air Kit and H&R Filter
- AC Schnitzer Strut Brace and Pedal Set

New Additions:
- Having delivered this afternoon: MINT M3 Sports Seats (powered, heated, with memory)...... Hopefully, easy conversion (these seats are from an e46 coupe)... Let you know how it goes....
- Painted lower valence on front spoiler flat black. Think it adds some character to the front and goes well with the theme..
- Painted headlight reflectors (come silver in 330Xi's) to a metallic black. They look awesome!!!

Parting:
- If anyone is looking to upgrade to a set of Near MINT Leather, Heated, Powered, with Memory Sedan Seats, let me know.
- I will also have a MINT sport rear seat set for a Coupe (apparently will not fit into sedan due to size).
- Set of Stock Yellow BMW side Markers.
- e46 Executive 4-spoke steering wheel, Multifunction controls + Airbag - Excellent condition.
- e46 3-spoke Sports steering wheel in good condition and multifunction controls. slight wearing on top of wheel
- Steering wheel slipring (required if upgrading to multifunction wheel from base model......

PM me if you're interested in the parts.

Will post pics once seats installed.

Whatcha think?

how much are you selling your stock seats?
do you know if the power options will work on my 330i which originally comes with manual seats?

nachos23 09-22-2009 04:06 PM

The power connector on all e46's is the same to the seat. If your current seats are heated, then it should be a direct plug-in. The seats that I have in the car now came off a 2001 330Ci (he had grabbed the M3 seats initially). If your current setup doesnot have heated seats, then you'll need the set heater buttons in order for that to work. Other than power, the remaing seat functions going through connector are for airbag, seat belt monitor, etc. The seats are MINT!! Looking for $350...... Power, heated, leather, with Memory!! Make me an offer!! PM me and I will give you my cell#.

i really like how the front bumper turned out! makes it look much better!

nachos23 09-26-2009 09:56 AM

me too man!!! FOr a few bucks (2 paint cans) and a couple of hours, it got rid of the "snow rasj" from the lower valence and I think it gives the car some character..... thanks for the compliment!!!

Do you have the OE rear coil springs and if so, what colour splashes of paint do they have?

nachos23 10-02-2009 12:00 AM

sorry bud the rear coil springs are what started all this. I noticed they were both broken (bottom tips snapped), so I got the H&Rs which lead to the Bilsteins, etc.... LOL

They're long gone....

No splashes of paint anywhere it's not supposed to be..... LOL

nachos23 10-02-2009 12:01 AM

been offered Hannman front spoiler lip and skits which I'm likely going to get, but hold off till spring to install.....

325xi-guy 10-11-2009 11:28 PM

Nice car man I got alomst the identical thing but 325xi 2004 my suggestion space out the rear wheels like 12mm and the front like 5mm, but super mint man

nachos23 10-12-2009 07:07 AM

actually; THX!!! THat would push the tires out and make it more aggressive. Looking @ the M-Tech II from Steve @ ASP.... Also, have signed-up for AA software tuning @ BimmerSport. That shokd be this week. Finally, just ordered from US a large sheet of Carbon Fibre (self adhesive) to cover all my trim which is currently wood grain... together with M3 SMG paddle steering wheel and M3 Seats, the carbon fibre will complete the look... found a company called overstock in the US and grabbed the sheet for about 1/3 regular price....
