E90 330d 2010
#1
Hi guys... 
smile bounce haven't been this excited in a really long time, in fact the last time was when I bought my 335i 5 years ago.. So I drove my brother's F30 330d to Nelspruit and back around November 2019.. From then on I would just browse classifieds online with no real intention of buying.. 

That was until I came across this tractor beast, at a fairly reasonable price on autotrader.. I called the seller, only to find that he stays 2km from my home.. Arranged to view, I get there the car is dirty in and out.. By that time I start noticing all dents   dunno anymore

Well we hop in, and he starts driving me around.. At that I'm surprised because I'm supposed to be doing the test driving.. Well I switch off the radio to listen to the car and how it feels on the road.. Let's just say from the passengers seat I knew I'm taking it.. Upon digging it turns out he serviced at BMW until 2018, he kept most invoices, relatively new bmw approved matching tyres and I was sold on the spot.. Still took it to my Mechanic for checks, and after that my Mech said "if you don't buy it, I'm definitely buying it".. So without hesitation, I pulled the trigger.. 

Year: 2010 
Mileage: 236000
Auto 
Bluetooth connectivity
Xenon, sunroof, headlamp washer, cruise control, USB,.. 

I need to attend to the following issues:

Fix the dents.. 
All interior passenger handles are worn-out (melted), already bought replacements.. 
Right side mirror cover cracked, bought it already.. 
Boot handle socket worn-out (fitted already) 
Steering wheel is peeling off.. Any recommendations? 

It also needs a full interior valet... Any recommendations around the westrand/Randburg areas?

The dents  Tiptoe
Just took solace in the fact he didn't try to fix them, which meant I knew exactly what I was buying as well..

I paid R1708 for the battery in my 330d 3 weeks ago ,so the current special does not sound very special to me Fencelook.

Keep the updates coming,I am sure a lot of us are very keen to see how it progresses. 

Congrats on an awesome car Bravo

So I visited Jeremy and his brother today for paintless Dent removal.. Not bad at all, though the dents were stubborn atleast it's not in my face anymore..

I also took @Prini offer for the steering wheel, which he fitted and coated the peel for me..

Did smash and grab, it's taking shape  smile bounce

@maleven-GP maybe you could consider using IMGBB to host your pics and then paste the links as pictures? The current method of uploading images does you no favours..

Congrats on the new wheels.. Take it the x35i is no more with you?
