Isn't that the town where one of the scenes from 'RONIN' was filmed?

No pix handy, but I just came back from a road trip from Seattle down the Oregon coast and back in my Aug '05 built 330i...

34.1 mpg -- without trying.

Damn impressive!

My 330

Well, after reading all of these posts I am starting to feel like I hit the jackpot. Apparently these cars have a bigger following then I thought.

My first BMW is a 2006 330i in TiAg with sport/premium/sirius. I guess the lucky part is that I found a manual! Got it last month as a CPO with 21k miles for $28k. It's a fantastic car that makes my 30 minute commute disappear.

Love the car ... already hit it with the menzerna/poorboys ex-p/DoDo juice light fantastic and it pops.

Nice to know I own a cult car.

Yeah... that's the kind of trip I'm talking about. My average speed since I bought the car is currently well under 35mph

That's just cruel.

The funny thing is our EPA rating is better than some econ cars and we get
better that some of them.

Like the Scion TC..lol!!
Even though the 335i is a much better performer than us and gets same
mileage, it is still good

Great thread!

Heck - I wasn't even in the market for a car. I had a sweet E46 ZHP that I loved. Then.... I saw this E90 come up as a lease takeover.

Alpine white... check
Terra leather... check
Aluminum trim... check
6 MT.... check
Sport... check
Premium... check
Heated seats... check

I was done for as soon as I saw the pics. I was debating ordering this EXACT car, but only in a 335i. I think it was a sign from God to take this lease over instead of paying $45k+ for the 335i....

What's the story with the different rim styles? Did one of them come with a package or are they considered equals and more people opted for the other style?

They are style 162 rims

They came with the sport package for the 330 only (and 335 till they changed them).

Ah, ok. Thanks. I'll have to keep an eye out for a good deal on them. I hope I'd be able to fetch a decent amount for mine. Do you know what the style number is for mine? I'm interested to see what they go for used...

What else was included with the sport package? I feel like I'm missing out

I have to look up what style yours are. On the E90 the sport package included, those 162 wheels where are 18" 225/40R18 up front and 255/35R18 in the rear.

Upgraded suspension (tighter stiffer) different steering wheel, and one of the best parts of the package....... the sports seats. Everything else you can buy and change fairly easily, wheels, suspension, even the steering wheel, but the seats are VERY expensive and hard to find used.

I found the wheel info for the E90: http://www.bmwwheels.com/bmwwheels_s...eries=E90&ws=0

I'll just have to be content with what I have

I can see myself replacing the rims, but probably not going through the effort of getting that other stuff replaced. I find my seats to be comfortable, the wheel turns, and the suspension seems great to me. My previous car was a '95 Volvo 850 so of course everything in my 330i feels like a huge upgrade.

The steering wheel in my car doesn't look any different than the sport wheel. Is it something other than looks that makes it different?

The trick will be keeping myself from driving a car with the sport package, lest I become rife with jealousy.

Thanks for the info though.

Sport steering wheel horn button looks different (see my first photo here), and the wheel is slightly thicker and smaller in diameter. Many folks with the sport steering wheel upgrade it further to the M steering wheel.

Sport suspension is also about 1/2" or so lower. Not a dramatic difference. The biggest differences are the seats and the wheels. I love the 162s. If you're inclined to buy some at some point, there are replica 162s you can get that are cheaper than OEM (try a search here). Also, you can often find people selling the OEM dirt cheap on the "classifieds" threads, as they upgrade to aftermarket wheels.
