F31 330d Touring - Pure Blue Individual - The Build

Hi all, following on from my intro thread, I thought I would start a build thread on here to document the changes I make all in one place! I have one in the UK section too, but thought I would stick one up in here too to share it with everyone!

Progress may be slow initially, but I have some long term plans for this car

Quick intro to the car:

F31 330d Touring
2016 build
BMW Individual Pure Blue paintwork
Oyster interior

It has a nice options list, but I wont bore people with the full details, as I am sure most people already know whats available on there cars!

I collected it yesterday, and I have to say it is night and day compared to my previous E91 325d Touring. The tech and the way it drives with the 8spd is next level!











I will update more once I have got the ball rolling with some mods etc, but my shortlist is the following:

Full GTechniq detail - interior and exterior
6WB retrofit
OEM M3 wheels (black / diamond cut)
BMW M Performance front splinter and rear roof spoiler - colour coded or gloss black
MPPK

etc etc

I had the first mod done last night after getting home which was to enable ID6, DVD in motion and also Extended Bluetooth.

So....

Some mods have started. Nothing fitted yet, waiting for them to arrive!

F80 M3 wing mirrors - had to be done! Will need painting Pure Blue first!



G Series NBT touch controller - should compliment the ID6 that's been coded!

Another quick update... ordered a custom retrimmed wheel from Ledermanz in Latvia. He's done my last two cars, and the quality looks great once again!

Will update with better pics once it's arrived & has been fitted!

It's nappa leather with alcantara & blue cross stitch. Also opted to have the centre trim done in alcantara too & he's supplying a set of F8x paddles also!

Quick update for the build...

M3 mirrors are being painted & should be fitted by the end of next week with any luck!

I also happened upon a brand new genuine M Performance body kit for the car on the F3x FB page, quick PM and I managed to get a decent (but fair) bargain on it!

Pick this up at the weekend and unsure of what to do with regards to paint?







Just need to source the roof spoiler now!!

Also forgot for some reason to put a couple of fitted pics of the steering wheel up.

It was done last week!

Quick update again...

M3 mirrors now fitted and sorted.

Opted to get the mirror covers colour coded in body colour for a more OEM+ look.

Also got the added bonus of having both passenger & driver mirrors autodimming, since my M3 mirrors were obviously from before BMW got tight and only fitted the drivers side with the electrochrome glass!

My car being a 2016 build was sadly only equipped with one auto dimming mirror glass from the factory, but the good news was that the wiring is present in the door, so it was plug and play once the M3 mirrors were on!

Pics...

Yeh, I think its a pretty rare colour to be honest! Even when you try and find other examples online or google search BMW Pure Blue there is not much out there!
