There's a sale at Autozone. 29.99 for 5 qt's and a filter. You'll have to buy 2.

Hello Everybody!!!

I am new to BMW and just got a 08 335i a few weeks ago. I picked her up from Auto Flex for under 25K and she has 50K miles. I have always been a BMW lover and a car guy so I am super excited about my new ride. So far I have found e90post to be an excellent place for information. Where in the meteroplex are most of you from? Seems like Dallas/nort Dallas area. I am in Haslet, which is basically nort Fort Wort. Hope to get to know some new friends

A couple of questions:

1)Which DCI is favored? I like the look of AFE but Id like to have the most performance

2)What exhaust(that doesnt cost 2500) do most peole prefer who dont want screaming loud sound?

1. any DCI - dual cone intakes (ie BMS DCI)
2. stock exhaust is good; get downpipes instead!

I remembered to take my laptop home on Monday but forgot to forward my desk phone. Oh well, I'm gonna try to work from home through Friday. We're probably going to get more snow Friday morning and I don't expect this stuff to clear until late Saturday.


Is it too selfish to wish bad things on TXDOT? They're quick to spread sand but they'll never come back with street sweepers to clean it up afterward. Get your paint pens and touch-up kits ready!

Took the truck out today and the roads really aren't that bad once you get out of the neighborhoods.

That's what she said! You will have to upload a larger picture. See below.

Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 500 by 100 pixels or 78.1 KB (whichever is smaller).

I can't even get of my driveway. With such a steep slope, I'll slide into my neighbor's fence if I try. Three cars and not one can get out. LOL. A buddy is supposed to bring some stuff to put down on it tonight so hopefully I can't get out of the house. Two days is too much now....I'm glad I bought snacks on monday just in case this happen.
