Xerces' Estoril blue 330i Touring Edition 33

So up until now I've owned two BMWs - '97 323i and '99 523i. This is my first 3 liter BMW as well as first BMW wagon. This is how she looked like when I got her this November:

She's a 330i with a 6 speed manual transmission, M sports package and a lot of other goodies. This car is one of Edition 33 vehicles which BMW released in limited quantity in honor of 33 years of BMW touring cars. From what I know they only came in a few limited colors (Estoril being one of them) and feature colour-matched stitching throughout the interior as well as Edition 33 written on the door sills.

I suppose this is what you would call ZHP in the United States even though as I understand ZHP's rev limiter is set a bit higher than on normal 330i cars.

Not too long after getting her I found a Style 68 wheel set for winter.

And also wanted to do some underbody protection. Removing all the trim pieces revealed that she was in quite a good condition.

And more images of the process:

Beautiful car!

I can't help you with the metal ring, but you can get a new knob insert here for less money:
