Hi All,

Would just like to say "Hello" too after joining the BMW fold about six weeks ago.

I have an E92 330d M-Sport Auto in Titanium Silver on an '09 plate. It's got the CIC iDrive, Pro Nav and a load of other toys on-board. It's also my first BMW, and so far I'm pretty pleased with it.

It's also my first diesel car. At one time I swore I'd never own one, but figured it was now a necessity as I'm working freelance and could end up doing a lot more miles.

I've come from a Honda S2000 GT, which I had for 6.5 years. The two cars are pretty similar in performance, but night and day in how they drive and go about delivering it.

Cheers,
Paul

Picked up my 335d Touring this afternoon, really impressed so far - it flies! Got E-Maps lined up to remap it soon, can't wait to see what it'll be like then!

After coming from a 1998 E39 I've got to figure out all the gadgets though! Also seems too nice to let the dogs in it but that was the point of an estate!

Welcome to the forums. Spoiler you can get from ebay [Taiwan seller] painted for about 45. Air intake BMS DCI kit. As for remap, there are loads of options, JB4 if you want a piggy back system.

Cheers for the welcome and advice.
Spoiler done from ebay.

re: remap - heard piggy back system is not as reliable (or good) as a ecu remap? Had a remap on my old E46 330d, worked a dream so will likey go for that.
Remaps uk did my last car, now looking at Evolve auto (miles away!) and superchips.

will search forum for more on the subject.

New 325i LCi

Hi,

Thought I'd register here as we've just taken ownership of a monaco blue 09/09 325i Lci. It's pretty different to the honda crx we've had for the last ten years which only had about three buttons inside it!

It's just been back to the dealer for the alpine retrofit as the base stereo was to say the least. The alpine sounds better certainly but reading on here I now realise that it needs 'coding' as well. More electrickery to catch up on I suspect!

I'm hoping you don't have the 'this thread is useless without pics smiley on here, as no pics yet. Got a bottle of BMWs own hard wax to throw on over the weekend and maybe a snap or two after. Happy days!

Matt

Hi

I've just bought a 2009 (not LCI according to realoem.com) 325i convertible. Alpine White with Dakota leather.

Picking it up from the BMW dealer in about 90 minutes! I haven't even seen the car yet, but it was in the spec I wanted so I paid my deposit unseen!

I'm an old school member of e46zone.com but I guess I'll be moving here if you guys prove as friendly a bunch as the e46zoners (which I hope you will)

Hi everyone, just joined the site although i've been a member on Bimmerforums for ages but always found myself coming on here to find the info I wanted

I've owned my 2006 e92 335i SE Coupe for around 18 months now and so far the only mods i've done are
  • Reverse bulb changed for LED
  • BMS dual cone kit installed
  • Lip spoiler fitted

On my to do list (which will all be done in the next month) are:
  • Autologic remap
  • Wheels refurbed in original Titan Silver
  • OEM Aero front lip to paint and fit
  • Change the original yellow angel eyes to white
  • Sunglasses holder in place of drivers side grab handle to fit

Here is my car. Hoping to learn loads of new stuff and happily receive any hints and tips
