Very rarely here at MStyle do we see a car like this one.

Paul, a regular customer of ours and the owner of this E46 330ci, is becoming quite the connoisseur of the E46 chassis. Not only does he own this timewarp example having only racked up 18,000 miles from new, but parked alongside it on his driveway is a 24,000 mile M3 in similarly pristine condition.

Paul brought his 330ci to us for some simple, yet effective OEM+ upgrades, the biggest visual impact being the CSL style wheels wrapped in a fresh set of Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tyres. He also chose to couple these with a set of Eibach lowering springs to give the car a clean, yet suitably aggressive stance, as well as tightening up the handling.

Exterior changes aren't limited to just the footwork, as Paul opted for a set of our LED angel eyes which were installed in his original BMW headlamps, and a colour-matched lip spoiler to sit atop the bootlid.

We also made some changes to the interior of the vehicle, with an OEM style Dynavin double-din headunit and the appropriate climate control relocation. As you can see, the car is still showroom fresh inside, so we think Paul made the correct choice in keeping it relatively original!

Along with the upgrades, the car was also tidied up further with a lick of paint on the hubs and calipers to remove the potential for corrosion and keep the car looking clean and well-kept.

Considering Paul's M3 is sitting on genuine BMW M3 CSL wheels, Eibach lowering springs and is equally spotless, I'm sure you'll agree that his is a driveway we'd all like to have!
