No problem~

I will be doing my research until I find a good used price for these parts. Upon installation I will be doing some runs at Milan Dragway with Stage 2+FMIC COBB OTS Map. (As soon as Milan Dragway opens) I am hoping to see mid 12's. Afterwards, I plan on getting a pro-tune hoping to reach 12's flat or even high 11's.

If you are looking to save some money on downpipes and an intercooler you might also want to consider VRSF. http://www.vrspeedfactory.com/bmw/e90e92-3-series-06

De-badged the rear and dropped in the color-match IND painted reflectors. Was gonna do the tint but I started reading that below freezing temps aren't the best for the curing process. Guess I will wait for the spring for the tint job. Thinking about coilovers as well.

Hey Sean,

What does your friend have for sale locally?
I'm specifically looking for AR DP's and ETS FMIC.

Let me know. Thanks!

Honestly, they really transform the car and can be set for a very comfortable ride as a daily driver. The dampers are completely adjustable with 30 levels of stiffness so you can dial in the exact ride you want. I also went with 336F/672R Swift Springs that seem to be perfect. Loving my car again and the difference is quite remarkable. Highly recommended!

Great to hear. Can't wait to see how your E92 has changed.

I can't believe it's the middle of winter and it's pouring rain out right now.

Figured I would post in here, my name is Paul, currently a senior at msu in advertising. After a lot of debate and driving about 5 different types of cars I finally bought myself a BMW. First one I have ever owned.

Got a 07 335i with premium, sport and winter package. Picked it up Thursday and have nothing but good things to say.

I just checked out the website and the 10% promo may ended... =(
I am in no rush for FMIC/DPs so I will choose wisely.

There is a member here who has been trying to sell his SPEARCO intercooler for a while now. He listed his price at $600 but now it's down to $500. How are the SPEARCO intercoolers for N54?

Welcome Paul!

BMW is indeed Ultimate Driving Machine.
My family owned several BMWs in the past from 525i, X5 to 755i as well as Cadillac Escalade, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Ford Taurus SHO and I was fortunate enough to drive them around occasionally.
I my self owned a 2008 X5 4.8i prior to trading it in for 2013 335is couple months ago and I have nothing bad to say about BMW. Compared to all these vehicles I have driven in the past, I must say BMW tops all of them. Exterior/Interior, Performance/Handling, BMW was the best experience overall in my opinion.

If you don't mind me asking, what was the price you picked it up for and how much mileage?
You're going to love your new BMW. Enjoy and maybe we will see you around during meets this summer.

I'm just nervous of stuff breakin like everyone says. I know they are expensive to fix, but it's a $52,000 car what do you expect? But I have to say the seats and everything are amazing. Couple scratches and scuffs and what not here and there but for the price and only being an hour away it's a nice car.

I paid $22,300 with 66,600 miles. It has premium, sport and winter package, summer and winter tires and rims, idrive, paddle shifters, parking sensors, it's the limited green color, and the window sticker was $52,000 back new.

Only complaint I have the hissing noise with the aux. I hate it and want to fix it! I am bout to buy the BMW y cord to see if it will fix it.

Thank you for the welcome though and I hope to meet you guys. Everyone that I've shown the car to loves it and I have even had older people who own a BMW say nice ride. I'm not used to this lol.

Nice335i, love the saddle (although Im biased )! I can attest to not having seen an e92 in the deep green color.

You mentioned $22,300 as the purchase price. Where was it located if you don't mind me asking? Mine just crossed 70k miles, the purchase cost is refreshing to see as a good 3rd party baseline for pricing.

There are meets in GR and the metro Detroit area frequently over the summer.

I picked it up from a retired 54 year old teacher that was the second owner. Bought it from BMW of Ann Arbor in 2010. Car was first owned by a head business executive who bought the best warranty imaginable that covered everything I guess. It expires this July, still need to transfer it.

I traveled to saline, mi. Went and looked at it on Saturday and bought it last Thursday. Had 66,600 miles on it, or a little over that. It was probably worth $22,000 but she threw in nearly new snow tires so I didn't mind.

And I'm from the el area. I am a car show kid, took my previous cars to shows and used to drive my second to last car only in the summer and when it didn't rain. Now I plan to DD this car and I love driving it. I am also on 600rr.net and have met with people on there in mi but I'm excited to get into the BMW game and meet some people who share the same passion I do for cars.

But I'll post some pics of my previous cars if you guys don't mind, and I'm only 22, so I'm fairly young, but I'm not a cocky, wanna race, haul ass everywhere driver.

First car 2001 Grand AM GT (75th Ann. Bought stock)


2005 Chrysler 300C (bought stock)


1999 Saturn SC1 (painted in bedliner and now my dad drives it to save gas. Was my winter beater)


2005 Cobalt SS Supercharged


And here is my pride and joy 03 600RR (bought stock)



All I own now is the BMW, bike and Saturn. All others are sold minus the grand am, it's my brothers car now.
