JDane07 - Vineyard shots - Where to go next?

Don't normally have Sunday off, so in-between watching football I grabbed my little Nikon point-and-shoot (or piece-a$$-sh1t if you will) and headed out to find a nice spot. I found out a place I liked, but it turned out my battery was dead
So alas, Galaxy S3 pics...

As always, thanks for looking..


Where should I go next? Opinions?
Keep modding my 330? Save up and turn in for a 335? e46 M3?

nice, you should shoot there again next spring.

i'd say you keep the 330i since it's such a rarity.

More power is always a good thing, but that's not what's making me want to potentially upgrade... I'm growing tired of having a AT transmission. I drive my bro's manual all the time, and it is such a blast. There's a SGM 330i exactly like mine for 21k and it has only 21k miles on it... I would literally go for that, but I see 08 335's for like 20k w/ 55-60k miles on it. I'll probably stick with my 330 for a while more mainly because I'm so attached to it, but might look to upgrade in 6-8 months.

What cosmetic mods should I look into that would add to the car? I'm starting to run out of wants...

I definitely will, I stumbled upon it just randomly. Such beautiful scenery.

Getting any sort of praise from you is always well-received
You should take these and teach me how to edit in lightroom!

Next shot should be at the Castello di Amorosa, my favorite spot in the Napa Valley Area.

Keep the 330, but if you do trade, the E46 M3 is a must have!

I love your 330i, but I'm a bit partial. But I've loved the mods you've done to it. Extremely tasteful. If there's not much to do to the exterior, head to the interior. New seats? Trim? Gadgetry? I dunno, for me I think there's a lot of detail mods that can be done.

Now I sold my 2008 E92 335i to get the '06 330i. I thought I was giong to miss the power as well. I don't...at ALL. The 330i just feels different to me and I enjoy it. Now having owned an '05 supercharged AW/Cinn E46 M3, I can say that neither the 335i or 330i even come close to that car. The E46 was in a different league and I miss it more than any car I've owned. I want the 4 doors, otherwise I'd consider going back to an E46 M3.

the 330 is an excellent car I wouldn't give up on it quite yet.

I've already wrapped my trim, so I'm happy with that aspect. Maybe I'll upgrade the steering wheel though.
And thanks for the advice, I really do love my 330, it would be difficult to give up.

the e90 series only year they made the 330 is in 06. with a s54 motor from the e36 m3. of course a couple slight tweeks of the intake manifods. and by rare i mean rare to bmw e90 series not all cars in general. and by worth something i mean it will be harder to find then lets say most e90 series. i dont own a 330 so if dane would like to add some info to your better understanding. thanks
