Well, what I'm thinking about doing is getting Borla Mid pipes and the Remus Race axle back exhaust. So, lets hope so! Not to mention my catless downpipe.

Hello everyone!

My parents recently gave me a 2006 330i and have joined the forums to make sure im taking care of my new (to me) vehicle the best way possible. The car is still under BMW bumper to bumper warranty but was not bought from a BMW dealership.

I recently had a symptom of HPFP failure while driving on 696 (gas was a bit under 1/4, could that have been the cause of sputtering/shaking/misfire?) and a week or 2 after the SES light turned on. The light has not been on for a day or 2 but it would randomly turn on/off sometimes.

I am planning to take it to a BMW dealership asap. The question is.. what would you do? Which dealership should I take it to? Bavarian? Erhard?

Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

Take it to the dealer whichever is closest to you! They will all treat you well! I thought the 330i are just inline 6 engines, I didnt know they are turbo.....

So.......... Yeah..

If I got pulled over for 35% tint last week, I don't even want to know this law and how much they enforce it....

MI doesnt test for Emissions. Run catless if you want (more power) and they really cant do anything. I would wait until your warranty is out though.

Ive been running catless for a while without any Issues!

You dont need to figure out symptoms or read threads of other people problems. You need to have to codes read and take it to the dealer if its still in warranty. If not, the worst place to have work done is the dealer!

What codes are you throwing?

Hi!

I'll be joining the ranks of e90 drivers hopefully this coming week. It's great to see so many people in the area with experience with these cars, including techs!

This will be my first BMW, a 2009 328i. I'm coming from a 2005 Volvo S40. I'm very excited for the change, and can't wait to be in my new car!

I'll be following this thread to see when any meetups are and any other shared pearls of wisdom.

I ended up buying the car, so I'm in!

Dunno if I can afford gas if a meet-up is far away, but at least I've got the car now!

I've also been spending time on the forum here too, and now I'm itching for a BMW Performance exhaust (if anyone is selling one locally, and not that I can afford it right now). I'm excited to hear the ins and outs of the car, and for the weather to be nice.

I just bought a new quad exhaust as well.
It should be here in a week. (Just shipped out today).
I can't tell you what it is :P
It's a secret.

I'll be heading to my dealership this Saturday to talk to my SAs about my mods.
I was just wondering if your dealerships were mod friendly as well.
If so, which dealership?
