Did any 330i owners here with ZSP receive the recall letter yet?

Yep, I had mine fixed already. They had to replace the whole bottom of the seat on the pass side.

Me, neither. I think mine was made in June 06, though, which falls outside those dates. I wonder if mine has the same issue or if they changed the sport seats after November 05?

I think the first part was his garage, then he torn down a wall into that room and put another garage door.

Right, but it's still a carpeted room with a garage door and a car in it, making it a carpeted garage.

Throwin down for my 330.

REALLY love this car. Glad this thread is up there! Offsets some of the bashing from the 335'ers.

I think the 330 really is the ultimate daily driver. Not a drag strip king but very gratifying thrust. Superb handling and looks. It's just the perfect balance for a car I live in every day.

Got mine previously-owned and saved a bundle off depreciation.

I like those wheels. What wheels are those? What offset or spacers did you use? They look really good.

April '05 build , delivered May '05 to my friend (one of two of my buddies who traded up from e42s to e90's as soon as they were available).

Drove the car a few times over the last three and some years and always loved it... though each time just reminded me I hadn't bought one for myself. Happily, as of 44k miles and a little over a month ago, it's mine. A stellar used-car purchase, I couldn't be happier.

A thousand miles in and I'm loving the 330i... it's so balanced and so very swift. Driving around these cities and suburbs requires an almost painful degree of restraint... too many stop lights, always a bit of traffic everywhere. This car needs an epic road trip.
