2006 330i, 105k miles - MTF, Diff, power steering, coolant changed. Looking at doing brake flush this weekend and when I was at dealer monday they said its very well maintained after inspection absolutely nothing wrong with it.

Only repairs ive had since owning it is 2 ignition coils and positve battery cable and explosive disconnect. Not to shabby compared to most bmws.

Hi guys.

Just picked up my Australian spec E90 330I 2005 BMW. Love it! Its done 128 000kms. Looks really good and has lemon interior.

Its got most options including Active steering, cornering lights (not working ) and active cruise...love the active cruise!

Already fitted the M3 lip spoiler and LED angel eyes!

Tossing up between the Eibach Pro-Kit and the FSD or Bilstein B4s combo! Trying to maintain the ride quality and cut the roll.

About to pull the trigger.

Anyone done any suspension mods on their 330i?

Also tossing up between these two wheel choices since I'm getting of the RFT. Which ones do you guys like?

Ive heard the fuel effeciency is slightly better in the newer one, I wonder if there are any other differences?
BMW incorporated direct injection for the 330i and only for Europe. NA got the 335i instead.

Hey all NA rebels :-)

My ride: 330i jet black w/aluminum and Dakota lthr, sport, comfort, cold wthr, 68Kmi. I bought her 2 years ago w/54K.

Suspension: OEM Performance, M3 links (no SB) and subframe bushings, GC toe arms, Vorshlag CP
Chasis: OEM aluminum tower brace
Brakes: 335i front calipers and Z4 35is rotors, braided lines
Wheels: 1) track set-up (in pics) APEX ARC-8 17" 9.5 255/40 RE-11A square; 2) Dinan 19" 9.0 235 and 9.5 265 PSS 3) winter OEM Style 185 225/45 LM-25; Project Kics R40 lugs and Turner 75mm studs
Power: Dinan exhaust, TB, CAI; AA tune, Quaife LSD
Interior: OEM Perf steering wheel w/yellow stripe, knob and boot, Dinan pedals
Exterior: OEM blacklines, Euro adaptive Bi-xenon, MTEC V3, OEM cf splitters, deck spoiler and grill
Coding: corner delete, V speed
Future mods - maybe: race seats, OEM perf rear bumper, JRZ suspension

I love the versatility of this vehicle. I can take her on a road trip or track. Now that the mods are more or less complete she is a very different animal. People might ask why put all these mods in 330i? As an aersospace engineer I can tell you that performance and reliability are hard to come by these days unless you talk big $. I think this is the best E90 with an engine that has millions of german engineering hours in it. Chasis is rock solid and weight is acceptable. This is a very small price to pay for that.

Cheers!

VERY NICE! Can you post some pics of the brakes and maybe some of the interior. Also which performance suspension do you have? Maybe a side shot to see the ride height. Thanks!

Is it cheaper to do an LCI conversion on a 330i or buy a 09 328i with similar options?
