JB4 install is pretty simple. They have a DIY video, I'm not particularly good with that kind of stuff and it took me an hour.

New member here - signed up over at MNBMW as well. Waiting on delivery of a 2013 328xi Coupe M-Sport 6 speed MT. The waiting is awful, but I should have it before the month is out.

Bumping as I'm a new 335xi driver. Picked up 12 days ago and really enjoying it so far! Let's revive this MN thread and get a meetup or something arranged.

Any recommendations for a place that can install a BMW Performance Exhaust? I pinged ORR but they're wanting to source the hardware (their cost $1300), whereas I can get it for less than $1k....

Thanks!

New member -- still looking forward to getting buying a preowned e90 in the near future. Any thoughts on how well the sport suspension (with rwd) and run flats get along with the pothole ridden Minneapolis streets?

Also, any thoughts on how well the lower ride height of the sports suspension copes with the snow in the winter (with a set of winter tires)? I'm not so concerned about rwd in snow, but do wonder if the lower clearance will be a problem in the winter.

Hi, I'm a new member as well. I joined after recently picking up an 07 fully loaded BSM/Brown 335i coupe two weeks ago. I'm on the E46fanatics forum too as I have an 04 AW/Red M3 Vert. My M3 is mainly for looks and cruising on nice days since I'm an older guy. My plans for my 335 are to be a clean looking sleeper if that's possible. I had to put my stock 19" M3 wheels on the 335 since it came with Blizzaks but I want to get new wheels because they currently rub in the back when I go over bumps or corner hard. I hope to meet fellow members, gain knowledge, and see tons of beautiful cars.

The sport package is great here in the winter and snows work perfectly. I've driven mine with snows in the winter for 5 years with zero issues!

Hey guys,

It seems like I may be moving to the Twin Cities sometime later this summer, assuming I take this new job over there. I just wanted to say hi and see if there was an active, local, BMW community out there.

I'm a little nervous about all the winter horror stories I've heard from some of my friends (which I'm sure some are untrue), so I'm wondering how you guys cope up there? I've endured 16 years of the winter climate here in Cleveland (and I've seen just about everything, I hope), and I'm curious how much worse MN is.
