Hey Everyone!

Been lurking for quite a while now - thought I would finally sign up as I have just purchased a 2006 3 Series 330d!

I'm based in Surrey.

Hi everyone.
Got my e92 335i last December. Can't even describe how much I enjoy the car, it's something I used to dream about.
Don't have any pictures yet, but it's probably not necessary since there's been plenty in this thread already, mine is an alpine white with red leather, a relatively common combination from what I've seen.

Hi dxb
Its April '08, and as supplied from the factory apart from the OEM M3spolier that i had fitted just after christmas.
Love the car, goes well and sounds great! First mod will be to loose the RFT's when they are worn out or when they crack my wheels whichever happens first

Agree with above. The rfts are the worst part of the car. Sometimes it feels like it steers its self when it tramlines. Why bother with them

Hi all,

Been hanging around since last year so thought it was about time I introduced myself.

Got a lot of great information from the forums before (and since) ordering my car - so, thanks!

Finally, after all decisions were made and after an excruciating wait, the following was delivered at the end of July...

E92 325i M-Sport

Le Mans Blue
225M
Black Leather
Pro Nav
Bluetooth
Logic7 Audio
6FL USB

Absolutely loving it!

Apart from the obvious, awesome engine, handling etc., my favourite feature is probably the Logic7 - impresses me every trip

Here's a pic from its shakedown run over to Donegal last Summer...

Kev.

Great looking car, ToTheSky. Just be careful with the wheels (and the rest of the car for that matter).

evening all

bought a 57 plate 320d e91 beginning of this year. Any info i should know it is quite high miler but still in warranty and wondered whether there may be stuff i might be able to get done whilst i still have that?

Also what mpg are people getting. Book says 57 combined. No chance. Just done 200 mile run and got about 45 at best. even if i tried i dont think i could get it to that! Maybe i have a heavy foot?!?!

Anothe rquestion do i just need a lead to get iphone to play music through speakers?

Would love change the tyres immediately, but finances mean that i need to run these RFT Bridgestones down abit first (that won't take long tho) - looking at Vredastein's Satantas as I have them on a previous car and was very impressed. Anyone have any other recommendations???

As for tuning - I would consider a mild remap, but had a REVO remap on an Audi Quattro and had alot of turbo problems from that point, so a little put off. (the problems were probably not due to the remap but 3 blown turbos in a very short period of time pissed me off a tad and cost me lots)


ToTheSky - your cars looks great in that picture!

Hi guys,

Thought i drop by and say hello. I picked up my 08 E92 325i M-Sport a couple of weekends ago after trading in my beloved Focus ST2. It's my first bimmer and is finished in Titanium Silver with the 225m style alloys. Its got the SMG gearbox which is good fun but taking some getting use to.

I'm not planning to mod it heavily, mainly just performance bits and bobs. I've ordered an Eisenmann exhaust which should be with me in the next couple of weeks and then i might go for the performance intake kit.

Anyway hi

Hi all

Just in the process of buying a 59 plate E91 320i MSport, hope to collect within a week or so.

Also have an E46 M3, sure I'll recognise some names from elsewhere.

Hello, just bought a second hand E90 320d M Sport, should be picking it up in the next week or so. A lot of this is a first for me, first BMW, first saloon car, first diesel, first time i've been sensible when buying a car. Had to be grown up and sensible about it as the wife is pregnant. The E90 wasn't on my original list of cars but as soon as I drove it, it just felt way better than anything else (even with the RFTs)...... these will be getting relegated to the wifes 1 series in the first month.
