Just picked up a 330i last weekend.

Hi guys, my name is Mack. Just picked up a 330i last week. Has 73k miles on it, all stock. Silver with sport package, black interior, 6sp MT.

Might need to replace the front wheel bearing as I hear a roaring noise as I roll. It's not too bad but I will be looking into tackling down soon.

Just got a tint job yesterday...



I've been browsing on this forum as soon as I got this car, couple of my friends are also e90 owners so I got kinda sucked into it. I didn't get the 335 due to not being able to control myself with mods and speed. This is also my daily driver so I guess that's my excuse.

I just picked up a BMS powerbox and got an M3 steering wheel on the way.

I took some videos of the rolls, I gotta say this is one hell of a first mod!

Before BMS





After

I would, too... if the rear tires weren't brand new. I didn't want to waste it since I won't be able to get much money for them so I rather just run them out.

Congrats! The 330i N52 + sport package + 6MT is an excellent combo.

Very sweet ride! I have always been a fan of the titanium silver on the e90 and style 162 wheels. Looks very clean!

I personally love those wheels. One of my favorite BMW wheels ever made.

I've got the same, car, color. When I bought it it came without run flats. I bought a spare tire and jack kit. I won't change the rims ever, I think there so distinctive and unique. When you see them you know it's 06 , sports package. I have a grey interior, wanted black. Light color interiors show wear and scratches like crazy. That car won't see snow and bumper chips, that's so righteous.

Did you notice the difference in acceleration after the bms powerbox? Is it worth it?

I too have the Powerbox. At first I was absolutely thrilled and felt like I had a whole new car....now I can't even feel like it's on. Congrats on the car though. A 6MT N52 is a special thing. You have the last of a dying breed.

Thanks guys! I wanted a white one but this one came up and I always had/loved silver so I went for it.

It's totally worth it. The difference is significant. You can see in the video in the OP. I don't know if it's going to change later or not, the instructions say the car needs to learn the tune? For $200 (used), it's a great upgrade, you can always put it back on market if you don't like it and sell for the same amount.

That's how it is with power, though. You always get used to it and feel the need for more... maybe change the map to 0 and see drive it for a few days or a week then you will know!
