Hi guys I'm new to the forum as I have just purchased my e92 325I msport after owning a Nissan 350z and I'm just looking for some advice on a few things.

1. I'm wanting to change my yellow Angel eye bulbs to maybe hid or led. I have been looking into this a lot and found all different types of kits the best led ones are looking like it is the Cree led kits but looking at pics a 55w hid 6000k canbus Kit is a lot more brighter still. Am I correct what would you guys suggest?

2. Is there any way if getting the 330I performance out of my 325I engine with a remap or something as I have heard its the same engine. If not is there any mods I could do for a little more grunt?

3. Does anyone know of any good coders in the Essex area?

4. The passenger belt butler doesn't seem to work, any ideas?

Thanks guys.

I also thought ill upload some pics of the car. Now its not my car as I haven't had the chance to take any but its identical in every way.















My old car:

Hi guys

New to the BMW scene, been a big part of the RS and general Ford scene for the whole 10 years of my driving life.

With a little one and travelling longer to work and needed a diesel so bought a 325d E90.

Will post some pics up soon, although will be usual boring ones as its totally standard at the mo.

Thanks

Will

I'm the owner of a E90 320d M Sport, only had it a week. Such a beautiful car.

If anyone knows of any good BMW specialists in the North West of England do share!

I am now onto my 3rd Bmw.
1st one was a 2001 525i sport
2nd , which I still have is an Alpina B10 3.2 1998
3rd is a 2007 335d E92.
I will no doubt have a few questions to ask.

Hi guys,

Picked up a 320D E90 M-Sport Tourer yesterday morning! Already been to Wales and back (Wolverhampton) Must say...it's absolutely fantastic! So solidly built and effortless to drive! I'll get some pictures up soon enough, spent the best part of 4 hours detailing it today!

Hi there,

Close to purchasing an e90 330i N52 tomorrow (if there are no issues with the test drive or discrepancies with the description). Been out of a BMW for just over a year - owned an e46 330Ci '03 for nearly 5 years and an e36 318iS '99 T for nearly 3 years prior. Both lovely cars but the 330Ci was spot on and I miss it hugely. Now have 2 little ones hence the need for a saloon. Will post pics once purchased.

Cheers, P.

Alpina D3BT

Evening all

I recently bought my first BMW - a 2009 Alpina D3 BiTurbo in silver.

Enjoying the ride, performance & economy, but keeping it clean & shiny has become a full time job )

Hi All,
First post to get started. 56 reg E90 3181 SE with (good) LPG conversion.

Having problems (which I will also post in a new thread)
Valvetronic servomotor fault code D1130-00000000-05-001 B1214-NGVMO-E.
Was running fine then went to part power mode.
Looked on some forums suggesting just cleaning the connector may work. Done and it seems to be running OK but still have amber engine fault light showing.
Does this need a reset by BMW to clear the light or do I still have the fault?
Any help/pointers would be appreciated.
Cheers

New Car

Hi all,

just a quick introduction, i've recently purchased an April 2010 E90 318i M sport Business in black, starting to get used to it now after having a Alfa 156 for a long time. To be honest i always wanted to get another BMW 3 series after owning a 320ise F reg saloon many years ago.

I hope to use this site to access all your knowledge and tips etc plus share my own experiences.

Thanks,

Kev

Hi all,

see below my new BMW 318i M Sport business, so far very happy but wish had professional idrive system instead of the business version as i can't hook my ipod to the glove box USB as apparently on the business version thats only used for uploading maps.

Oh just had the calipers and hubs coated silver which makes it look alot better already.

Regards,

Kev.
