    L16YD L 2004 E46 330D Sport Touring

    Well here it is, i've been after for ages and i have finally got one - a 330d Sport Touring. Its in Mystic Blue, got 177k on the clock, standard Sport interior, genuine tow bar, full service history (BMW upto 147k), swirl flaps replaced and remapped to 256bhp. The guy (Will) who i bought it off was really pleasant, knew his stuff and was up front about everything. Only took a 3 hour round trip to collect it and i love it. Here are some pics:









    As always, theres a plan, well a list so here it is:

    Lower the car
    Fit the 19's off my last car
    Black Leather interior
    Decat front pipe
    Stainless exhaust
    Allard EGR delete
    K&N filter
    Allard front intercooler
    Bi-Xenon headlight
    LED number plate lights
    CCFL lights
    And other little things here and there.

    I have got most of the stuff above so should hopefully get most of it done over the summer, so keep an eye out.

    Very nice bud looking forward to seeing it when you've completed the mods

    Unless the cars remap has EGR delete included your EML will illuminate when you fit the allard bypass!

    It must fly with all those horses realeased mate

    Cheers, are you after a Saloon or Touring? I know Saloons you can get quite easy in a manual but the touring's seem to be autos.

    Cheers Si, thanks for the heads up too. If it brings up the light i'll take it off. It does fly but needs a little more i reakon.

    Well today i managed to get the wheels on as the MV2's had some budget tyres which made the car handle like a bag of nails. So i lowered it, put new top mounts on and put the wheels on. Also managed to break one of the rear anti-roll bar links when i was putting the driver's side rear springs in, so annoying. Here are the pics:








    A big shout out to Si and Dave at Sheldons Manchester for helping me out.

    If your EML light comes on you can get the ECU programmed so it doesn't worry about the EGR I think.

    I am after a saloon, but my budget is 3000 to 3500, I want a Sport as well. They do pop up, but I don't want a silver
    Like you said there is faaar more Autos than manuals.

    Not much done this week, managed to get some new cup holders in:




    Only a small mod but it makes hell of a difference!!

    Also managed to get the LED rear number lights on:





    Abit of messing and they finally worked and are alot brighter than standard ones.
