Hi ya,

Pretty much a noobie on here... Have had my E92 M3 for a couple of months now and absolutly adore it. Wife drive a 130i MSport which I recently took to the 'Ring and it did me proud.

M3 replaces a remapped 535d, which replaced a facelift 996 C2, which replaced an Audi B6 S4 Avant... all in the space of 3 years !

Hope to catchup up at a meet some time soon..

B.

My 330d M Sport Saloon has arrived!

Now I have to run it in

Below are some pics including one with my daughters boaster seat, which having put it in the car has made me wish I had gone for the red brown leather, although everytime I think of this I keep on telling myself that black leather is a much more practical colour, especially so when you have a young child.

One thing I am really pleased about is that even though I didn't order the voice control the voice control works in full for my phone, (I did order the bluetooth). As I don't have idrive I can't see I would use the voice control for anything else, but presumably as my voice control is partially activated someone on this website can probably explain what I would have to do / get so that I can fully utilise it.

I am now toying with the idea of whether or not to get the tweeters fitted as I only have the standard speakers. The last time I looked there was no mention on the relevant thread re whether the parts are any different for the facelift E90. Does anyone here know the answer to this?

Although I am biased I do love the facelift, took above pics from my phone to try to show the new bonnet.

My car had 3 miles on it. Is this low, high or normal?

One thing that was annoying is having paid the 205 for the "usb adaptor" which everyone at the garage pretty much called the ipod adaptor I had to pay 39.99 for the cable to plug in my ipod. Garage wouldn't give it to me for free but in their defence they did agree to fit new country identifying number plates with the EU/GB pic at no charge, (the wife should be taking the car in today / tomorrow for the change).

Hi all,

Been browsing this forum for a little while now and just thought I'd introduce myself and say hello and this is me.


Looks kinda mean & aggressive when dirty don't you think?



But it's nice and clean inside!

DOH! Forgive the American posting here. Or as some people would say the Yank but I'm Southern and we call people from the North Yanks. Anyway... I posted a thread but did not say hello. Hello all! I'll be around the UK for about the next 4 months or so visiting the in laws. And I'll be over to Germany in about week to pick up my new 09 E90 Sedan. American Spec so I don't get all the lovely choices that you all have. No M Sport or the like.

Sounds like that front seat is your "boaster" seat.

I'm using the simple Apple iPod cable from my home computer and it works without a problem. At the moment I have a 1GB finger drive attached and it's working very well, too, through the iDrive. I'm not sure the purpose of the AUX cable portion of the Y-cable.

FWIW, my car had 6 miles.

No need to apologize. They haven't kicked me off, uh, yet. Southern, huh? What part? You are saving your Confederate money, are you not?

If I remember correctly, if you want to play DRM protected files from an iPod, you need the Y connector, as the audio is fed to the 3.5mm jack, rather than through the USB connector. It is a rip off, but it is very neat and tidy.

Where did you get the little case on the lid?

Floyd, I don't believe for one second that your car didn't come with one of those as standard.

You want me to take a photograph of the inside of my console? It ain't there, my friend.

It came with the car. I believe it comes with the USB Adapter option (?)

I could do with another one for the wifes 130, as it only has the AUX input not the USB Adaptor there isn't one on the car.
