My first BMW!

After being caught up in the allure of bimmers since I was I kid, and after looking at at least half a dozen BMWs, I finally bought my first.

It's an awesome 07' 328i Sport with 6MT, the only way to drive

Thanks guys! Yeah, it's been great so far. And I'm exploring things to get down the road. 3-stage intake, m performance exhaust, black kidneys, the list goes on

Welcome to the world of BMW. I know you will really love your car for the E90 is a blast to drive pretty much every time one gets in and drives it.

I suspect the car you bought will exacerbate your addiction to BMW 3ers. One can only hope that BMWs future 3 series don't cure the addiction.

FWIW, 6MT isn't the only way to go, and in cars that are being built now, it's debatable as to whether, unlike in the E90 and older cars, there's any functional benefit to going with a manual. I see you just joined B-post last month, so perhaps you've not seen them, but if you look around here a bit, you'll find no dearth of threads discussing the merits/downsides of MTs and ATs.

All the best and again, enjoy.

Nice! I bought my first E90 recently too...loving the car! Part of me sorta wants a 6MT, but the AT isn't too bad for a Daily Driver.

Is that estoril blue? It looks very nice

Good work on your first BMW. I finally got mine about 6 months ago after years of dreaming! I came from a Mazda3 and what an upgrade. The Mazda was a fun car too.... Oh and it was MT ALL THE WAY. Same as my bimmer now!

I hope you have as much fun as I did getting the hang of matching revs with the new car and trans. It was slow at first, but now I have (mostly) smooth downshfts.

What color is the interior? Post some pics if you can... Mine is silver/black, but I really dig blue/brown too.

Either way... Congrats and ENJOY!!
