Good find Metrics. Mora really suits an E46.

Doesn't it belong to a member here, or maybe that was a previous owner? :think:

Yes Mora is a fantastic colour.

The other thing that struck me seeing it against modern cars in the car park was proportions and presence. The car sat low on 18" wheels and had mudflaps. The car just looked so right. Call me old school but these older cars hark back to a time when BMW design was spot on.
