Earlier this week I took my 335i for service at BMW North (I45 and 1960). I had them do the annual oil change, PPK 1 install, and a few minor trim/warranty issues. I had a fantastic experience. Dante was my service advisor. Easy to work with, listened to my concerns, and had my loaner ready to go. More impressively, I ended up paying about $40 less than the quoted install on the PPK. That was a very pleasant surprise.

My experience at BMW North was much better than at Momentum. I'll be going back.

Possibly FRM reset?

I've been dealing with a bad angel bulb for about 8 months!! I purchased new bulbs, bulbs are ok, just one side is not getting power, verified with the bulbs and a VOM. Wiring looks ok, no exposed wires.

After searching looks like i may need a FRM reset with a certain tool, which I know nothing about? : Tool32 or Logic tool? If anybody can assist, let me know. Thanks in advance.

Hi ... I am new here and recently bought a "new to me" used 335i.

Looking forward to jumping on and learning more about the car through all of you current owners.

Nice car, but I'm pretty sure it's Monaco Blue.

Shop question!

Hey guys... I did my searches regarding a good shop in Houston and found a number of references, reviews etc.

I usually take my car to the Bimmer Workshop @ Humble.
Alan is great and the guys always give me first class service! I really trust them!
Now, I'm a little further (new job) west from them and was wondering about Car Techniks @ old Louetta. Did anybody used them???

I do a lot of work on the car myself (plugs, brakes, fluids), I just don't have the time now and I need to have front rotors and brake pads changed.

e90 M3 - '09

Any insight will be helpful!

Thanks

Alex

Collin's Automotive is up around there. Talk to Mike. He gives us E90post people 10% off. Tell him John/Robert sent you.

Hello all,

Although this is not my car. I will be posting here, looking for simple mods, and asking questions as this is my parents ride, and I sometimes drive it when I get a chance. I personally drive a slammed G35 Sedan thats quite modded as well.

Here it is:

2011 BMW 328i Sedan with only 18,800 mi. on it upon purchase. It was a leased car from a person in California. Picked her up at Momentum BMW on southwest freeway. Its amazing how much this car changes when you go from D to DS mode, very quick throttle response in my opinion. It's all around a great car, quiet, and very comfortable to drive!
