Thumbs up From an Old bloke but New poster lol

Hello to One and All,
I am new to the forum and have just purchased a 2005 E90 320d SE, not as exciting as a lot of the cars on here but I am loving it so far and it seems a lovely way to dip my toes deeper into the BMW way of life/ownership.
To be honest my reason to buy was originally just as a second knock about motor so its a vehicle with 187000 miles on the clock, but its in wonderful condition and drives like its done half that mileage and to be honest since it arrived my "main" motor has had little work!
The reason I said deeper into BMW ownership is because my other motor uses the six cylinder BM diesel engine as its prime mover and so I am already well aware of the reliability and longevity of the marque.

Hi all, last month I got myself a 2005 E90 320d M Sport in Le Mans Blue and really enjoying it so far. Had an issue with the auxiliary belt tensioner whining which is now resolved, but apart from that it has been great! This is my second BMW, had an E46 328ci previously which was also great but too thirsty for my work commute! Have found a lot of useful info already on this forum and hope to see you all around!

Hello again. Wondering if anyone knows what I need to do to get my account activated? I cannot post a new thread. There is a message at the top saying 'In order to use the PM system and be a full fledged member of this community, you will have to make 1 post and wait 1 hour for your account to be upgraded. I made two posts lastnight and still this morning I cannot post a new topic.

Have tried contacting admin and it just comes up with an error saying 'This cannot be processed'.

Any ideas?

Hey guys
Picked up a 2009 335i SE E90 LCI about a week or two ago with just 23.5k miles on it. Feels tight as a drum

My first BMW and what an impression. Such a machine!

Just replaced the stock shift knob with the M Sport one and feels a lot more comfy, and gear shifts feel a bit better despite only being a little bit shorter. Got the brake M Sport brake handle cover to go on next, and have a performance exhaust on order with the stealers which should be landing soon I hope!

Actually considering the BMW performance upgrade if I can get it for a reasonable price (I know there are better after market options but I just want to keep everything above boards as far as BMW are concerned)

Hi chaps just registered. I'm after a nice 330i/330d m sport touring, been looking for nearly 6 months now mostly at e46's but finding a topaz blue 6 speed with alacantara proves quite hard. Managed to take my budget a bit further as a result though so fingers crossed for a nice example to come along.

Hi Guys,

Should be picking up a black e92 335i in the next couple of months.

Body works needs a little tidy up but hoping to pay the low part-ex price my boss has been offered so should be a fair price.

Anyway, will post pics once i'm in possession and the bodywork has been sorted.

Best,

George

Hi Folks, just to say hello as a new member. I've not long bought an E93 335i SE auto.
I've already done a couple of mods such as the golf tee mod, and fitting the LCI rear lights, albeit they need coding which should be happening this week.

Eyeing up a remap and Alpina gearbox flash for a start.

Hi all, thought I'd post up and say hello after browsing the forum non stop for the past few days in anticipation of taking delivery of my E90!! I'm moving up from a 1-series 118D Sport (LCI) which to be fair has done me proud the last year since I 'upgraded' to that from my old E36!! I do a big commute so had to go diesel and just needed to get back into a 3 series loon again, albeit a bit more up to date So by the end of the month I'll be the proud owner of a 320D M Sport Auto (LCI) in Sapphire black, can't wait!

Good afternoon,

Been browsing the forum for a while, purchased a alpine white 320i msport in December, loving it so far, not really looking at modding too much apart from changing the lights to the white/bright variant!

Hello people; finally made an account after browsing the forum.

Beginning of the year bought a Silver E90 318i M Sport; a beauty. Its got a milk chocolate, (i think? not sure what the colour is actually called; chocolate orangey colour) leather interior; that sold it to me within a sec!. Looking forward to some modifications; angel headlights, tints, led conversion, coding & hopefully a few more things.

(have some pictures up soon, in need of a wash)

Hey guys, taken a long time to post but been reading for a few years. Used great advice on RFT tyres, cracked alloys, headlamp washer motors, privacy glass, software upgrades, well in fact when i bought my current car. So thanks all for putting in the effort! Will try and support the cause more in future.

E92 320i MSport 2008 sapphire black, 19", M3 spoiler, sunroof, auto, red coral. Few years back had E46 318 MSport. 7 years an owner and counting...

Hey Guys,

Finally got my hands on an E90 330i Msport in saphire black and I love it. I've wanted one of these for a few years now, however there are a few things I didn't anticipate.

The first is the way it tracks the road, this is to be expected somewhat with the RFT and sport suspension but sometimes you literally have to fight to stay on the road... Has anyone changed the tyres with much success?

Also my steering seems quite heavy which I don't really mind, but again I didn't anticipate it to feel like this. I have driven a Lexus IS250 and agree with some other posts I have read that the ride in this is much smoother! Motorway steering is great but country roads not so much.

Overall I love the car and want to add a boot spoiler and black front grill. I can't decide whether to get a matt black one or gloss black. The car is saphire black and I can only find gloss black ones on ebay etc. Anyone know of any UK suppliers with any more colour options?

I'm 24 from Kent, are there any local meets you guys know of???

Luke
