Was given an F30 Sport Line as a loaner the other day! It's a 328, so it feels a little slower than my 335, but man it feels like a freaking boat compared to my '07 E90! I'll have it till at least Monday, so maybe I'll grow on me.

I had a new 328i while my car was being worked on over the summer. Cant say I am not impressed with how much pep that thing has. Messed around with the settings in the car and you can make that thing grandma worthy or pretty peppy. Either way, not a bad car considering the amazing gas mileage you get from it.

Yeah, once I figured out it was set in Eco mode from the start and also found the sport mode, I was much more impressed.

By far the most amazing part of that car is the interior, simply stunning!

Stunning interior? I was feeling my 328 loaner was pretty lackluster in all aspects...particularly the interior. The car bored me to death and felt like a pig to me. No feel whatsoever in the steering. It honestly made me sad because it felt like such a departure from the E9x and E46. Good thing no one's twisting my arm to get one.

Maybe but I posted this before that. Normally when there is a very snowy winter we end up with a warmer spring and hot summer. Look at 2 years ago. Last year we had a very mild winter and spring was cold and summer was just warm.

I also need to see if we can get the employees to move their cars into the back or somewhere else maybe in front of Starbucks. When they park in our spots it is hard to get good photos. I honestly don't think that anyone has asked them though to move them. It would be closer for them if they simply parked right in front.

Last year we had one cars and coffee in April and we actually had a good selection of cars. I think 4 bimmers 1 Carrera gt and a lotus along with a few other cars.

I'm pretty happy with the mileage I get out of my 335i. If I simply commute, i get it the 30's on the highway. Spirited driving on the other hand...

Can anyone recommend a good SA at MAG? I'm finished with Kelly BMW. They denied me a turbo replacement last year. I want to try again and take in the new turbo warranty paperwork with me. The car does have a VRSF FMIC, I hit a 'coon and went with that. I'm at like 81,100 miles. I'm almost out of time!

Are the wastgates rattling? You need to put the stock FMIC back in place. Neither place is mod friendly and I know some techs at both places.

Looks like BMW Cleveland, Dave Walter BMW and Ganley BMW are advertising e90 oil change @ $79.95

Ganley indicates you need a coupon, BMW Cleveland and D/W makes no mention. Listed under the value service in the service tab on each of their web sites.

You should be able to find a used one cheap to get the work done.
