New to this thread, Have owned my little e46 since March last year. When I got the car she had 31,500 miles and had lived in Guernsey. The previous owner had not cared for her very well and as such there were a loti of little things to resolve missing bulbs, cracked indicator / Broken lenses, Number plate bulbs had oxidised. and some major jobs some necessary some cause I wanted them.
I like to use my cars performance as much as possible and as such am a right stickler for feeling safe. The car came on 17" alloys fitted with Kwik Fit ditch finders (BCT600), due to the shite tyres the car felt like it was floating and not planted, so I got the laser wheel alignment done. Then I wanted the windows tinted so did that still not sure??
Had all the fluids and filters changed, thank... I did old oil was thick and black not nice, now has Mobil1 0W-40.
