    Adam's Orient Blue Metallic (2005 BMW E46 330 ZHP Sedan)

    I love reading all your threads so I figured Id start one and update as I go.
    So this is my story. After months and months of searching I found a local 1 owner car w/ the color combo I was seeking. The PO garaged the car and drove it to his office every day, which also had covered parking. You'll notice in the maintenance portion he followed BMW's 15k oil change crap /sigh. It will be done annually from here on out (that's >3k miles for me)

    The car was super clean, never in a wreck,dealer maintained and drove like new. Totally worth the wait.


    Maintenance / Mods to date:

    15300 Oil Change, Oil Filter, New Wipers
    30877 Oil Change, Oil Filter, New Wipers, Brake System Flush
    46587 Oil Change, Oil Filter, New Rear Brake Pads & Sensor,Clean Park Brake,New Wipers,DME Reprogram

    Agreed, but they are free! Every couple of months a box magically leaves a random laboratory... in my tool case
