2009 Red
Sedan with sport package w/ navi package ect...
I do plan on mods, doing research on common upgrade paths for the bimmer as well as what it can handle with stock components.

My old car was a 2003 SRT, put 400 to the wheel at altitude in CO. I dont think I want to go that far with this car. Im thinking exhaust, CaI, some sort of simple tune, and exterior mods for now. If I get the itch i might go further. Its a auto so I don't want to ruin the tranny.

I havent taken any pics, this is courtesy of carmax's owner page...lol.

Why?
because there horrible.
Youll notice a huge diff if you just get regular tires. Plus there horrible story about run flats. It gonna take about 2 years depending on how hard you drive it to run down those rear tires.
Since your a new member will just say congrats at your new car and not ding you for mods yet.lol
I know they aren't great but they are fine for DD. I don't plan to autocross this car and I have a car for that. I will be getting some eventually. Probably next year since the fronts will wearing out, getting some 19".

Nice car! I have same one and also had a bad wheel bearing but it was in the rear. The noise was very difficult to locate and I had to use a mechanics stethoscope to finally find it. The good news for you is changing the front is easier.

Hmm, I might have to ask around to see if I can get one of that to pin point it. Did you do the bearing yourself?

Rear bearing requires tools most do not have access too. Fronts are MUCH friendlier.

Enjoy it man! I picked up a mystic blue 330i 2 weeks ago and it's a great car. Has potential to be a classic one day.

The pictures are playing tricks on you, all four wheels do have some curb rash, but not terrible. I paid 17900 for mine with 46k miles. Its a little high on price around here, but the condition is just shy of showroom (minus the wheel rash).

I gave 15k for mine 2.5 years ago...premium, sport, and Idrive. Had 70k miles on the clock. I've added 12k miles since then. I wished it were a manual...those are so hard to find anymore.

Nice car

The rear wheel bearings are an absolute bitch. Hope it's the front!
