Brought her home last night!

Specs:

2001 330Ci Coupe
Sport + Premium + PKGs
Titanium Silver on Black Leather
Heated/Powered/Memory seats
HK sound system (sounds surprisingly good!)
OEM MTech2 front bumper
OEM LED tails
6000K Predator Chromium AEs
OEM M3 Tri-Stitched Steering wheel
Interior "xenon" bulbs
Pioneer 5700DVD Flip out TV/Nav unit (which I'm selling)
H&R Race Springs
X-Drilled Brembo rotors F+R (I love the 330 brakes!)
19" MVR Magnums (not sure if they are staggered)
235/35/19F 255/30/19R Dunlop SP Sport Max

Might be forgetting a few small things. Only mods planned are a MTech2 rear or ACS addon molded, and a CSL style Bimmian trunk lip.

Anyways, here are some teaser pics before the actual photoshoot:







Hopefully I can get better in time to come out for BimmerCruise! I've only driven her once and that was the drive home. It sucks to have your four wisdom teeth removed the morning after the night you bring home your baby!

Even though I HATE TiAg, I could not pass up this car

To be honest, I was having regrets selling my E36. I started to think, "Is this car really going to be worth the couple grand I had to put into it?" I was honestly debating canceling the whole deal, but let me tell you - the drive home removed ANY AND ALL doubt from my mind about the purchase! It was a 30 min drive and I took some back roads to get a good feel for the car

Handling:
The E36 felt more raw, more jittery and "unsettled" if you will, it was very go-cart like in it's driving and that's a good thing. I can confidently say feels like it would out handle my E36 any day, anytime. It's just as, if not more than, capable as my E36 with the PSS9s. It's just so much more composed when carving through corners.

Power:
This is no contest. 2nd gear in this car feels almost like 1st in my E36. There is more power and torque and the difference is easily noticeable. I nearly bought a 325Ci, thank goodness Charlie and the boys found some flaws during it's PPI because the 330Ci is just SO much faster. This car definitely has balls in comparison to my E36.

Looks are subjective, so I won't comment on that.

I absolutely dislike silver for the fact that it is sooooooooo common. But being in the used car market, you can't have it 100% your way... I still love this car!

Shall we do Forks and wings early next week?

LOL! Sorry Carl but I'm in no condition to be driving the car and taking pics today. All in due time my friend, all in due time.
