well from all the bad wheel bearings i seen at work... i dont think i ever heard one making a squealing noise.... they usually make a groaning/grinding noise when they go bad.

possibly parking brakes?

Not necessarily a squealing noise. It's like a womp-womp-womp noise. It goes away after about 20 and comes back once your in the 2-10mph range. Faster I'm rolling the faster it makes the noise then just goes away. It seems to do it after sprinted driving or when the cars warmed up.

sounds like rotor to me, but that's a slightly educated guess.

NTBC anyone?

Is anyone here part of NTBC (North Texas Bimmer Club)? I haven't seen many E9x cars around there. Lots of E36s and E46s

I'm typically one of the only N55 ones there. I haven't been the past couple months. Been moving, death in the family, etc. I think the last one I went to was the November meet. I plan on trying to make this next one. Just depends.

Picked up a Space Grey 2009 e90 m-sport a week ago.




Already ordered bmw gloss black kidney grills, bimmian key hole cover, reflector replacements, new i-drive controller (one in the car was scratched to hell), euro sunglass holder for oh-sh*t handle location, and new floor mats.

Want to sell these wheels and either go with an aftermarket 18" or go all in on some 19's.

What is the Dallas opinion? Roads aren't the best but they're not super bad either....and I'm worried if I go 19's then i'll be on the hook for a drop as well.

Anyone got some 265/30/19's for sale? I need to throw some on the rear. I might buy some new ones but I want to let the fronts wear down and get all 4 at one time.

Congrats on the new car

Congrats on the car! I was looking for a car just like that last year.

Do the 19s and a drop. I loved the look on my E90.

Anyone in DFW that does DP and FMIC install? I'm moving Thursday to a state that doesn't do emissions testing and figured it was time to put the fun bits on
