New Member - Long Time BMW Driver - Looking for e92

Hello Folks -

New member here - I wanted to introduce myself...

I am a long time bimmer driver (since 1980) and member (same / similar nick) of mye28, bimmerfest and bimmerforums.

I wanted to join e90post as I am starting to look for a 2006 - 2008 328i or 330i e92 coupe, preferring a manual, black on black or sand, or red on black or sand, with manual and low relative mileage (30-45k). I really like the e92 body style and have wanted a coup for quite some time. (Last Owned a 320 and 318i three series from 1980 and 1986).

I am now reading through this forum to know the ins and outs of the e92.

In the meantime would appreciate any known good links addressing maintenance / repair issues typical for these cars as mileage proceeds from 45k to 100k as well as any significant year / model differences from 2006 to 2008, any buying tips and issues to checkout before initial purchase.

As each series production line has its issues, I want to be ahead of the curve (quoting the Joker) as I move towards the purchase of my next dream car.

Thanks everyone in advance.

PS. I currently own a 1987 535, bought new (now 156k miles), and a recently broadsided 1998 528i (acquired in 2006, added 2001 upgrades / 156k miles). Both cars religiously maintained with the help of knowledgeable forum members like this one and a view to drive them forever. Currently, I am considering options on what to do with the damaged 528i. Repairs are easily fixed and engine and interior are in near perfect condition with all issues addressed preventatively.
