Hello. New member

Hi all. I am a new member and a new owner of a 2008 BMW 328i Coupe. This is my first BMW and I love it. If anyone has some good advice for me, let me know. Thanks.

first of all welcome to e90 community.

now since summer is coming, do a window tint.
then do front lip, it makes huge difference in overall appearance of the car, you will like it.
then do minor things like angel eye bulbs, front grills, side reflectors, m3 spoiler etc etc.
before you know it you will be looking at some other cars and realize that you can use some little drop on the car and some nice aftermarket wheels...
if you got extra money and time, then you will find some people did 335i exhuast conversion or m3 conversion attractive as well



my only question to you is, what's your relationship to PNW to make your first post here since you are half way around the other side of the world?



just curious...

I am new to this kind of stuff, but I was told by someone that is already a member here and has a 335i that this site is pretty cool. I am stationed in Germany (Air Force), but am about to leave. Getting stationed in Seattle in about a month. I have aftermarket BMW rims on it now, but looking to do some more things to it once I get back to the states.

I actually bought it used, so I will be paying for it to get back to the states. Yes it is pretty expensive.
