Enthusiast Built ᴴᴰ | BMW 330Ci E46 Project
Just wanted to share my E46 2003 BMW 330Ci M Sport project.
I have a huge passion for Reconditioning / Restoring older BMW's. This is
my second E46 that I have done, but I decided to film this one. It didn't
turn out too bad.
I spent almost two years looking for a clean 330Ci M Sport or M3 with black
interior and a manual gear box. When I found this one I was very happy. It
was going to be my summer toy, but considering that there aren't many of
these left out there in this condition, I only bring it out on sunny days.
It has been reconditioned, new Brakes/Calipers, Bushings, Gaskets, Fluids
and etc... The front bumper and the drivers side skirt were repainted due
to some damage, the rest of the car is original paint except for one of the
quarter panels, which was done by the previous owner. I did a full wet
sand, 3 stage cut and power polish, along with a full detail and
replacement of any worn out parts on the interior/exterior. 3M Stone Shield
was applied to the front bumper, fenders, mirrors, and splitters. I did a
freehand cut and wrap on the edges for the stone shield protection to keep
it free from rock chips on the edges of the hood/fenders/bumper.

I plan on changing the pulleys in the future, along with a different
throttle body and cams. Perhaps one day a turbo.
The BBS Ck ll wheels that are on it at the end of the video are not
staying, I prefer Matte Bronze with the car's silver/black colour combo,
NOT a fan of the polish look.
The M3 Style 67 Wheels were refinished for track use only.
How To Install BMW E46 Angel Eyes
In this video I show you how to install angel eyes on the BMW E46 with
These angel eyes are super-bright, and by SUPER BRIGHT I mean if you look
directly at them in broad daylight from a couple feet away it physically
hurts your eyes (is painful). That's how bright these things are!
These angel eyes are LED 7000K. I preferred 6000K but in fact with 6000k
projectors (d2s bulbs), the 7000K angel eyes look very good (I got the
6000k d2s bulbs from Khoalty).
I got these specific angel eyes from iJDMTOY off Amazon.
Their instructions are here:
Their instructions are pretty good but just don't cut it. I had to devise
hacks included in this video to get it to work right and fit snug.
By the way, the wire I was referring to at the end of the video is the red
one with a white line and yellow bands.
Good luck and I hope this video helps you!
