JWe45BB New Member Build Thread

Hey y'all,

Just purchased a 2010 328i coupe. I've been a huge BMW fan for years now, and finally got one of my own.

Questions:

-49,000 miles as she sits now. Are there any known issues with that model year? I spoke with my local BMW dealership and they said they could do a "Pre-Purchase" inspection for $300....worth it? (I'd like to stay ahead of any known issues to try and avoid any costly repairs)

-"Walnut Blasting"?!?! WTF is it, and is it necessary/worth it? Does it truly make a difference in performance/daily driving?

-Only issue i've noticed in the couple days of driving is that the steering vibrates when turning to the right, either in reverse or drive at slow speeds (pulling out of parking spots). Any idea what this issue could be?

-What's your favorite DIY mod? I've already blacked out the grilles and window trim, and wrapped the interior in 3M CF, which completely transformed the car.

Thanks y'all. I'm pumped to be part of the forum!

I have a pretty extensive mod list planned for her so stay tuned!

Here's a pic of the day I picked her up:



Here's pics as of 5/10/16:

My 2013 has the same steering vibration at low speeds (1-2mph)...seems like a common problem with the E90/E92. From my brief research, theres no known fix to the issue but I hope i'm wrong!

Congrats on the ride!

Walnut blasting is more a thing for the turbo cars, you're good.
