Just registered, found you from Google. My names Dave, I live on the Essex coast and have just purchased a E46 330ci convertible which I collect on Tuesday 1st. Have also just got a Hardtop for it, car needs a few little jobs done, nothing major thankfully. Will post some photo's when I get the car and have given it a coat of wax etc.
The reason I went on Google was to find out about unblocking a drain hole on the back o/s where the hood bracket is, it floods into the boot I've been told, so need to get it fixed before it rains.
Looking forward to chatting to you.
