Brad's BMW 330ci

So sold my BMW compact 316ti. Was a great little car, really loved it. Loved the interior. But decided I wanted a new car, I couldn't think of any car I really wanted to replace it with, so decided to stick with BMW and the E46 and decided on a 3 series coupe. I decided on a 330ci. Sold my car on the Friday and picked this up on the Saturday. Want to get the interior as good as on my compact.



Compact:






And the new 330:

New E46 looks great. Love the compact wheel too. Has it been recovered? Any links?

It might be the angle of the pics, but the headlights look like they are starting to haze on the 330i? if so get em 'restored' before they get worse.
