    Meet my February 2005 Morra E46 m3.

    Have been the proud owner of this car since August 2009.

    Heres a few pictures of what i been up to with the car, i kept her stock most of my ownership just changed the alloys and headunit, which i kept the oem alloys and radio.

    I'll post a few pictures of her and if you could please give me a idea how much i should set her at if i do put her up for sale.

    Interior still needs a little finishing, but it can be returned back to the boring grey,still have grey carpet as well :muttley:

    Will add current interior pictures today, still need trim wrapped in carbon which i am waiting on.....

    This has been a long and expensive wee project, i dumped the stacks, went with a very loud exhaust system, which i will need to replace the de cat at least back to stock,

    I still have all oem parts, though the dashboard i have covered in leather, thats really about it.

    Fair bit of blood, sweat, tears, and money went into this build, now that i have it done, i still really want to change to a m4, so really i am wondering what i should ask for my morra, or are value likely to rise and with the work to put it back to oem , would i be better off keeping the morra as a real piece of bmw history, one of 14 right hand drive cars.

    Thoughts.

    ps. in 9 years of ownership you can see by the service book i did little more than 2,000 miles, two oil changes myself, and one stamped with complete check over by local indy.

    Yes i think i am going to wrap this wee beauty up in bubble wrap and have her to love and cherish for keeps.

    I'll just have to tame down my next 4 wheel buy a bit .

    Anyone have and always keep insurance running all year round on two cars, who are the best for this?

    First part on csl badge, no shame here on my behalf ,Your allowed your view on it, and i am getting this comment a lot and really don't understand tbh.

    i know what the car is and will never be, its a very rare mora e46 (14 rhd cars made) so i aint pretending its a csl like a madman,i am just trying it with the badge as i paid £45 for it :roflmao:., its not going to make it go quicker nor up in value, i just thought it looked rather nice with the paintwork after all the csl work thats gone into the car, with the bootlid, alloys, diffisuer, crazy exhaust (which needs changed its mental). Must get a bridge for a video, before i put cats in again.

    Grey interior should be banned from all BMW's imo, i just dont know why the guy that bought this beauty new in 2005 picked grey, black suits the car so much better.
