First BMW

Hi all,

I've had my E91 330d M Sport for about a month and 2000 miles now and although it's not my first RWD is is my first BMW. I have to say I'm loving the feel of the car after coming from an Audi A4.

Smile Hello everybody :-)

Hello everybody, I currently have a 320i black coupe which I have had for around 9 months - love the car and enjoy doing some upgrades myself.

Had the EML and few times with coils and no2 sensor replaced. Ive been told that your not a BMW owner until you've had a yellow light

I had used several guides on here and hope to contribute to the board.

Another Forum.. another Year

Hi everyone

Not new to car forums but new here ! I am an ex-BM3W forum member - same username!

My car history is littered with BMW's, although the last few years a lot of 'sensible' ones

1987 - Brand new E30 320iAuto after getting my licence back following a 3 month ban for doing 135mph on the M25...

1989 - E30 M3 (black , miss it like crazy, where are you D27 WTV?)

1991 - a 1989 M535i Sport Auto

1997 - E36 318i Coupe (run around)

2001/2002 - E36 M3 (shared with GF)

2002 - Brand new E46 M3 after previous car stolen from driveway and insurance company gave a fair settlement

2004 - E46 M3 CSL (200 miles on the clock) one of the black ones

2006 - X5 4.4i Sport

2007 - E61 530d Sport Auto (05 model)

2011 - E60 M5 - Big mistake. Hated it. Only kept it 6 months and dropped a fortune to get rid of it

2011 - E60 530d Sport Auto (08 model)

2012 - E90 335d Sport Auto (09 model)

2013 - ???? Well I dont think it will be a diesel

Hello everyone

Hi to all. Few weeks into BMW ownership and absolutely over the moon with the car. Haven't enjoyed a vehicle as much as this for a few years. Had sporty hatches, fast Audis and Alfas before but this is my favourite drivers car by a long way.

320d M Sport Plus Edition Touring, 2010 in Alpine White. I love it!

Also nice to be back in the world of forums. I've avoided or been out of the loop for a while. Needed a new way to waste time. No really I did...

Been on here a while now, was going to wait till the car was clean and some nice decent light to post pics, but that will probably be about 6 months time knowing British summer, so here's a few pics of when I picked mine up

welcome
Hi mate. What colour coupe you got? You ever been over to the Z4-Forum too? Must admit Im missing my Z4MC. Dont yet have the 335i as the indy is sorting new turbo actuators after I viewed, heard a rattle and asked for an inspection.

Not sure 4 seats and non-M life will cut it with me but thisvis the closest I can get without spending on a new M3! Are M3 paddles an upgrade to the standard Steptronics?

Hi all,

Great forum. I've joined, as I'm looking for the right 330d to replace this:



I'll start a WTB thread in the Classifieds when allowed. In the meantime, I will keep scouring Autotrader/PH/E90Post etc.

The car I am after is:
330d
Facelift
Manual
Leather (anything but white or grey)
Saloon/Touring
Any colour (might baulk at Katie Price Pink!)
Condition is more important than mileage to me.

Hi all

Newbie to forum but long time bmw owner,

My family have been BMW owners from 1995.

I recently sold my E46 320d Sport saloon and will be collecting my car this Saturday.

It's a 335d E92 highline.

Can't wait.

Hi All

Picked up my first BMW a couple of weeks ago and so far i've been really impressed. I decided on a E90 320d Edition M Sport. After looking at a couple i decided on this one.



Gave it a good detail the other day with a mate who also has a 320d, so we grabbed some pics. I'm sure he will be lurking around here somewhere.







Been a member of a couple of other forums so looking forward to spending some time on here and getting to know members.

So, again, Hello.

Hello my name is Simon, I'm 23 from Blackpool and looking at getting myself a nice E90. Had a few cars in the past already more then most my age so will go through,

First Car - Renault Twingo GT Turbo 1.2 Turbo - Modified Myself -



After that I went to a Mk5 Golf GTi - 200bhp, OEM+ Upgrades -


Then some woman decided to update Facebook on here phone instead of pay attention around the roundabout and ended like this



After that I got myself a Pearl White E60 525i -



Sold this due to mainl fuel costs and it started to have ALOT of electrical faults so swiftly moved from that to a D40 Nissan Navara -



Loved this and trailering but soon went for another MK5 Golf GTi - 290 bhp Stage 2+



Then sold that about 2 months ago and driving a MK6 Fiesta ST at the moment trying to find a nice 320D! Obviously had my private plate I bought myself! Name is Si Betty so quite fitting really!



So that's a hello from a young 23 year old!

Hello from another newbie

Hello all just a quick post to introduce myself.

I'm a fan of BMWs, have been for some time - I had an e34 535i about 10 years ago and apart from the fuel consumption, I have the fondest memories of that car having being driving for over 20 years now and owning all sorts.

I got a Vectra cdti150 nearly 4 years ago and that has kept me entertained ( it's far from standard), but it also thoroughly converted me to diesel and the fact that you can have the best of both worlds - performance and economy. Oh and the torque...I'm a big fan of torque now. Can you see where this is headed yet..? Yeah pretty much - I'm after a x35d. I need to have that engine in my life. So for the last 3 years I've been training for a new career and promising myself that at the end I will reward myself with one. Well the 3 years ends next month and I would like to get myself one of those beasts Apr/May time when my insurance renews.

I've pretty much set my mind to a 3 series coupé m sport with all the goodies and cream interior. I'm thinking low miles 08/09 with a budget of upto £19k. I did consider a 5 series, and it's temping as I'm sure they're a great drive, but I'm after performance and love the look of the coupé (although the 5 is a good looking car too!).

Anyway, I'm really looking forward to joining the community and learning all about the e92, particularly what to look out for when buying!

Cameron
