    Hi,
    Just a quick intro.
    I have been prowling M3Cutters for quite a few years now but I have now finally set up an account. Presently own a 2003 330ci Cab which I have had for just over 3 years. I have been eyeing up E46 M3 Cabs for a number of years and now looking to buy one. A lot to read up on the forum so trying to get up to speed with all the old and latest news in the E46 M3 world.

    James

    Hi mate, welcome to the forum.

    Best way to get up to speed with an E46 M3 is to buy one.
    That's what I found anyway.

    Good luck :thumbsup:

    2004 Carbon Black (I am not too fussy on colour and have had a few nice Blue cars previously) black leather, convertible, full BMW history and was a local private purchase. So time to sell the 330CI convertible which has been a good car during my 3 1/2 year ownership.

    Ok, that was not too painful to get a picture up - maybe a bit big though! Anyway this is the pic just before I picked it. I guess it just looks like any Carbon black cab.

    So what have I done so far -
    Oil and filter change and brake fluid change at Iridium Southampton.
    Aircon re-gas, let see how long it last's but the system held a vacuum so fingers crossed.
    New rear view mirror from Mirror John - now fitted.
    Ordered exhaust back box clamps as mine are falling apart - fit tomorrow.
    Played around with drivers door mirror, motor clicking when mirror is almost at folded position (job on hold as lost interest after the 3rd strip down)
    Plans going forward:
    Order a set of Staggered CSL reps wheels
    RACP repair - Undecided on Redish or ETA but going to wait until later in the year.
